Hardy was in a car when they nearly ran over the 11-week-old Woodstock. The actor decided to stop his car and go after him.
Since that moment, the two have been inseparable – remember, Hardy even attended the premiere of the film Legend back in 2015 with Woodstock by his side.
So, when Woodstock recently died of aggressive polymyostisis after 6 years of companionship, Hardy was full of praise for his dog. “I am ultimately grateful for his loyal companionship and love and it is of some great comfort that he is no longer suffering. Above all I am completely gutted. The world for me was a better place with him in it and by my side.”
