It’s always so devastating when an animal gets hit by a car. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what happened to one poor pup in India a few years ago.
The homeless dog was crossing the road in heavy traffic and was accidentally struck by a vehicle, instantly paralyzing him.
His legs got totally crushed!
While in many situations like these the animals don’t really stand a chance, this time, a passerby witnessed the event and immediately called up rescue organization Animal Aid Unlimited for help.
The volunteers from the group captured the whole rescue on video and later posted it on YouTube for us to watch. Be forewarned, it is a story that will likely bring tears to your eyes.
As soon as the rescuers arrived at the scene of the accident, they could tell instantly how bad it was.
The dog was scooting around in the street on his butt, trying to drag himself out of the way of traffic. The dog was hurt, confused, and so scared.
At first, the injured pup had no idea the rescuers were there to help him either.
He reacted defensively, scooting away from them the best he could.
Eventually, they managed to get the dog onto a blanket and transport him to the local animal hospital. What vets discovered was not good news.
The accident had resulted in terrible nerve damage and trauma to the dog’s spine.
They said he would never be able to walk again. Yet, rescuers knew they had to try to save the poor dog anyway.
They helped to move the dog’s legs when he could not move them himself and performed many weeks of intensive physical therapy.
Of course, the treatment involved plenty of rest as well. The dog needed lots of time to recover. Luckily, he was very well behaved throughout the whole process.
They decided to name him Georgie!
“Little by little his toes stopped curling backwards. Still, he could not stand. But his caregivers never stopped trying…” the video description reads.
Finally, the video gives us an update as to what is going on with Georgie now.
It is heartwarming to watch. The once paralyzed dog regained almost full use of his legs and can be seen happily running around the property of the rescue organization, practically as good as new.
They didn’t think it would ever happen for him, but the rescuers never gave up hope that one day George would recover. They continued to work with him day after day, and in the end, it looks like all their dedication definitely paid off!
Now, Georgie has a second lease on life and we are sure he is very grateful.
It is a small miracle, but one that was definitely facilitated by the loving actions of volunteers at Animal Aid Unlimited.
If it wasn’t for their quick response the day of the accident and all the effort they put into physical therapy after the fact, Georgie never would have stood a chance!
It’s always amazing when stories like these have a happy ending.
