Dixon, a 5-year-old dachshund, lost the use of his legs following a traumatic injury. His owner was laid off and unable to afford his increased medical expenses, so she surrendered him to Animal Haven, a non-profit organization that finds homes for abandoned cats and dogs throughout the New York Metropolitan area.
When he was first brought to Animal Haven, Dixon would uncomfortably drag his hind legs. However, through the persistence of his rescuers and months of physical therapy, Dixon can walk again!
Watch his amazing recovery!
And here he is today!
