Trapped in a shelter, he dragged himself across the gravel with his twisted legs
A dog named Richard was stuck in a shelter with no hope. His legs were twisted and he was forced to crawl and drag himself over rocks for the rest of his life, writes ilovemydogsomuch.
But Viktor Larkhill refused to let that happen. As soon as he saw Richard in the shelter, he knew he had to get him out and get him help.
They took him to the vet for x-rays and a CT scan to determine the best way to repair Richard’s legs.
Although Richard had a sad look in his eyes, he trusted the hospital staff and let them do whatever was necessary to help him.
Incredible surgeons decided that Richard was a candidate for surgery, even though it would be very complex. They were able to straighten his leg and place a metal plate on it.
Right after the surgery, Richard was already walking upright for the first time in his life! Today, not only does Richard walk, but he runs like the wind, just like any other dog!
He has even found a forever home with a loving family and a new sibling to run and play with.
Watch his rescue and transformation in the video below:
