This dog was found living on the streets in Mexico. He was partially paralyzed and could only get around by dragging his legs behind him.

Rescuers from Compassion Without Borders found him and decided to do everything possible to save him. They weren’t sure he would be able to walk again, as he had been in this condition for months.

 

But the dog, later called Toby, never gave up.

 

Despite the challenges ahead, they wrapped him up in a towel, and brought him to the shelter.

They gave him the food and veterinary care he desperately needed, before starting him on a physical therapy regimen.

 

The organization moved him to a foster home in California where he started doing exercises to increase the mobility in his legs.

Slowly, he started to be able to stand, and then walk a few feet before having to collapse again.

 

But after months of work and care, Toby can once again use his hind legs! He was adopted by another family in California, where he receives infinite love and care.
