Dogs are incredibly resilient animals and have been known to bounce back from even the worst cases of abuse and neglect.
Yet even the rescuers from India’s Animal Aid Unlimited thought there was no chance one of their most recent rescue dogs would recover after they saw the condition he was in. The dog, who was later named Sidney, had been found laying on the side of the road. He was dirty, covered in flies, and couldn’t move his back legs at all.
Rescuers from Animal Aid Unlimited rushed to the scene and carefully picked Sidney up and wrapped him in a blanket. They treated the infections and bathed him, but the team realized his back legs were completely paralyzed.The team knew how serious spinal injuries are and knew he’d likely never walk on his own again, but couldn’t give up on him that easily. With the odds against them, the team started giving him physical therapy, and eventually Sidney managed to take a few steps on his own before falling over.
Sidney had made great progress but still had a very long way to go until he could actually walk properly. Amazingly, he never gave up and left his rescuers speechless when he got up one day and started running and playing as if he had never been paralyzed.
