Joshua, ‘The Miracle Dog’ has taken his first steps after having his spinal cord fixed in a groundbreaking new operation. The poor pup had been left on the side of the road in Bulgaria, paralysed, when he was found by a rescue clinic. They successfully repeated the cord – making Joshua the first dog in history to recover from such an injury.
After hours of hydrotherapy and physiotherapy, Joshua can feel his legs and has begun to move them. Having been taken over to the UK to complete his medical recovery, the charity K9 Rescue has been caring for him.
Vets estimate that this brave, strong dog will be walking again within a year.
