From Trash to Triumph: The Inspiring Story of a Stray Dog’s Road to Recovery
Lawson, a young stray dog living on the outskirts of Istanbul, faced a tragic accident when he was hit by a car, leaving him unable to use his hind legs. As a result, the poor dog had to crawl around in search of food, causing his already paralyzed legs to become even more severely injured.
When the team from He’art of Rescue came across Lawson, they knew they couldn’t leave him behind to face an uncertain future. In Turkey, dogs with disabilities or illnesses often have a very difficult time finding care and attention, which is why this rescue group makes it a priority to help them. Despite his challenges, Lawson is a brave and determined dog who deserves a chance at a happy and healthy life.
His legs were covered in scabs and wounds due to the extended time he spent dragging himself on the ground. Every part of his body bore the marks of his struggle to survive. Although his spine was beyond repair, Lawson is now trying to regain his ability to walk by using a wheelchair.
It’s clear that he’s much more content than when he first arrived. Just look at the wide smile on his face! I’m pretty sure it’s because he’s aware of the fact that he’s receiving expert and compassionate care.
After being rescued, he gingerly takes his initial steps in his seat a couple of days later.
