A street dog had hit by a train and his legs were horrifically crushed. Railroad workers had seen the dog lying by the tracks and called Animal Aid’s helpline to urgently call for help. When our rescuers reached we found him quietly sitting by the tracks with his legs mangled beyond belief. His front leg was attached by just a few threads of tissue.
When we got him back to Animal Aid we assessed his injuries and it was clear that in order to save him he would need one leg completely amputated and two legs partially amputated.
We had never before rescued a dog with such ghastly injuries but yet who was so alive and otherwise healthy. With heavy hearts we didn’t think we could save him and that we would have to euthanise him.
But as our team stood around him, petting him and trying to sooth his pain, we decided to let love be our guide.
We took him into surgery and our doctors and nurses spent the next five hours amputating his crushed limbs.
It took Deepak over 6 months to recover.
Watch him in the video above to meet him today!
