Dog Hit By Car & Left Behind Beats the Odds; Learns to Walk Again In The Most Incredible Way
If you’re a animal lover, this story will pull at your heartstrings. It’s difficult to imagine injuring an innocent dog and then leaving to suffer alone and afraid. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what happened to Asher. After being hit by a car, he was left with two broken legs and gashes on his head. Sadly, the human who caused his wounds never even stopped to check on him.
Although an incident like this might cause us to lose faith in humanity, it didn’t cause this sweet boy to lose his zest for life. With the help of Lucky Dog Animal Rescue, he is triumphing over his injuries and recovering in a way that inspires us all.
Asher Approached Serious Injuries With Grace and Determination
This young dog perseveres through countless obstacles, never allowing them to bring him down. Even when that included orthopedic surgery to repair his broken front and hind legs. The rescue reports, “We’ve had many dogs with incredible medical stories. What inspired us about Asher was his strength and determination. The moment he could, Asher was up and using his legs and ready to take on life!” He sounds like a special guy for sure.
Beating the Odds One Step at a Time
The pain of broken bones and surgery couldn’t dampen his spirit. Even with his extensive injuries, his foster reports, “He is using his front left leg regularly to help balance himself and walk around when he goes to the bathroom. He has yet to use his left hind leg at all. We are exercising both legs several times a day, moving and rotating each in a full range of motion. He is going to the bathroom outside without accident. He is eating very well and takes his medicine easily.” Those traits make caring for any dog easier.
