A puppy with a crooked face that was abandoned by his owners in the US has now found a new home in time for Christmas.

Woody was mauled by another dog when he was just five weeks old, leaving him with horrific facial injuries, Metro.co.uk reports.

However his owners refused to get the little dog any medical treatment - leaving him permanently disfigured. They abandoned the poor pup, leaving him chained outside to starve to death.

But he was rescued by some good Samaritans and rehomed - and this year he will share Christmas with his first loving family.

"He's so cute and endearing, a real sweet goofy-looking boy. I just fell in love with him straight away," animal rescuer Courtney Bellew told Metro.co.uk.

"We were told he doesn't have health complications, he just looks a little different which doesn't bother us one bit. In fact, it's what made us fall in love with him even more."
