Never give up hope: Street dog paralyzed after hit by car

When a concerned villager called into Animal Aid Unlimited in Unaopur, India about a street dog who had just been struck by a vehicle and couldn’t walk, volunteers rushed to the village to help. And there they found him; a shy, little paralyzed dog named Georgie who couldn’t understand why his back legs wouldn’t work. For a long  time, he just sat dazed in the middle of the street completely confused and barely able to cope with the paralysis.

As the rescuers moved closer and tried to make friends with him, Georgie was scared. He dragged himself away and growled defensively when anyone tried to pick him up. One could almost see tears well up in the eyes of the dog’s rescuers as he scooted away each time anyone approached.  When the men were finally able to make  a sling and securely pick Georgie up, he was rushed back to the Animal Aid hospital where emergency help would be available.

“It doesn’t happen very often, but sometimes, when nerve damage is caught early and intensive treatment and physical therapy is started right away, there can be reason to hope, and that’s what Georgie did. He hoped,” posted the organization’s moderator on their Facebook page. “He had suffered damage to his spine and urgently needed treatment and most of all rest to stabilize his spine.”

And for weeks, Georgie underwent lots of rest to help heal the nerve damage and physical therapy to help him stand. There were daily massages while his medical staff helped him to stand. Eventually his toes stopped curling in, but he still seemed not able to walk… but he tried and he hoped.

    The look in his eyes and the way he sits reminds me of my precious quadriplegic furbaby (injured by a large dog before I could intervene)……
