When Animal Aid India found this poor dog, he had just been hit by a car and did not seem to understand why his hind legs didn’t work anymore.

As the confused dog attempted to drag himself along with his front legs, rescuers gently scooped him up and brought him to the animal hospital. Vets discovered serious nerve damage that rendered his legs paralyzed — a condition that is often permanent.

Bur after intensive treatment, he became a whole new dog — and one day, was able to use his hind legs once more.

Today, the dog — now named Georgia — can run and play with the other dogs, and is enjoying himself to the fullest.

Thank you, rescuers, for giving this injured dog a second chance.
