Woodstock Yamaduki Hardy
Known as Woody for short, Hardy found him as an 11-week old puppy running on a highway in Atlanta. He adopted him and brought him back home to England. This lucky rescue often joined Hardy as his date for many of his film premieres. Woody sadly died after a battle with a muscle disease in June 2017.
