In the rural areas of Udaipur, Rajasthan, India, a dog left for dead hyperventilated and trembled in pain after he was hit by a vehicle who never bothered to stop. Pintu couldn’t move, and it was only a matter of hours before he would die.
Fate stepped in and a Good Samaritan spotted him and immediately stopped her car to help. She placed large stones around the dog to protect him from being hit again and called Animal Aid Unlimited for help. When rescuers arrived, Pintu was nearly in shock and was unable to stand – he could lift his head up, however his legs didn’t move.
Rescuers picked him up, wrapped him in a blanket and brought him back to the hospital for emergency treatment.
“When we brought him back to Animal Aid’s hospital we found that this gentle sweetheart had no fractures, but his spine was injured and he could no longer stand. He was so trusting that even from the very first moment he seemed to know we were trying to help him,” the organization wrote on their Facebook page, updating Pintu’s situation.
And for the next six-weeks, Pintu rested and received physical therapy. Watch how this brave little hero has made his new life.
