Aww … The adorable moment a disabled puppy learns how to walk thanks to doggy therapists

pupIt would be nice to fix animals’ illnesses like we do humans, but people only have so much money. So when an animal is rehabilitated from some debilitating condition, it is truly heartwarming.

The Daily Mail reports on one sad looking, but very fortunate puppy,

The video shows a very excited puppy using a doggy wheelchair as he runs around with a bigger, paralyzed dog chasing a play toy.

One therapist assists him as he walks near cones used for his exercises. He then takes off but his back legs weren’t strong enough as he walked faster and they gave out.

The therapists cheer him on as he attempts to climb on the mat during the cone exercise.

‘Good job! Nice job! Good boy! Are you walking?’

And as he’s placed onto some blue mats with safety guards in place to keep him walking on a steady path, he slowly puts one foot in front of the other.

Eventually, his back legs give out and he sits down in the middle of the exercise.

One therapist commended his efforts to ‘push himself and get those hips up’.

Even during his swimming exercise, the puppy was using his back legs to help keep himself afloat as he paddled around.

His last exercise consisted of walking on a ‘doggy treadmill’ with the help of one of the therapists who said: ‘You got! Keep your hips up.’

Finally, when the little guy gets on a trampoline, he is able to stand up on all fours. What is so precious about this video is how sad he looks — but he never stops trying! Listening to the therapists talk to him is just adorable, sounds like they are talking to a baby. Very grateful someone took took the time to take a video of this progression, it is so inspiring and reminds you that there is a lot of good out there in the world.
