A tiny stray puppy had crawled into a hole to hide after his leg had been severed after being hit by a train.
Rescuers at Animal Aid Unlimited, India were called to help and found him afraid and in excruciating pain.
His leg was completely broken and almost torn off just below the shoulder. His paw was dangling by a thin piece of flesh.
“Despite the unfathomable pain he must have been in, when our rescuer reached out to him, he started to wag his tail,” writes Animal Aid Unlimited.
“And his precious little tail continued to wag throughout his entire rescue. This little boy was so full of hope and trust.”
Seeing Spirit after his surgery it’s hard to believe the terrible state he was in just two weeks earlier. His rescuers pulled off a miracle and helped him make a full recovery.
Now, Spirit is running and and giving kisses to everyone he meets!
