Tom Hardy Posted A Heartbreaking Tribute After His Rescue Dog Died.
Most people know of Tom Hardy as a badass onscreen. Offscreen, however, Hardy is a big guy with a big heart to match. The Internet is filled with photos of Hardy posing with various dogs. There is one particular dog you might notice is in most of his photos: Woodstock.
Hardy first met Woodstock when he was only 11 weeks old and he's been in his life ever since. He actually rescued him from an expressway in Atlanta. They've grown extremely close over the years to the point where Hardy considered him one of his best companions. Sadly, Woodstock passed away a few days ago.
It's no secret that Tom Hardy has a huge heart when it comes to dogs.
There are numerous photos on the Internet of the actor posing with various dogs. And it wasn't that long ago when the actor melted everyone's hearts by bringing his canine best friend to the premiere of "Legend."
Hardy actually rescued the little guy during his filming of the movie "Lawless" in Atlanta.
His dog's name is Woodstock but he called him Woody for short.
It all happened back in 2011, with the help of his fellow actress, Jessica Chastain.
Shortly after rescuing him, Hardy brought the pup to a pet shop to buy the little guy food, a collar and toys.
Woody was actually crossing the road at the time and was almost hit by the car Hardy was in.
"We were in Atlanta, Georgia, doing Lawless, and he was in the motorway. We almost ran him over with a Prius," he told Vulture in 2014.
Retrieving the dog wasn't a piece of cake either.
"He ran off into the motorway, and Jess was like, 'No, no, no! You've got to go after him!'"
