Reminded me of when my German Shepherd was struck by a car, and his hind leg was broken. Dogs are very resilient. Thank God for good vets and loving families.

I felt like jumping in the film and playing and kissing the brought back to health dog. Thank you from the bottom to the top of my heart for what you have done for this animal. Thank you for not giving her the needle but helping her instead. She is one happy dog and she will love you and don't think for a moment, she doesn't know how she was helped. She licked her leg and paw because of the itching. She's all healed now thanks to all the wonderful angels in her life.

When humans rescue, foster, love and care for and provide forever homes for animals I actually believe their is hope for the human race. Thanks for this post.

Just love baby elephants and watching them growing up. Thank you for caring and sharing.

Right. I get in that position for 30 minutes and never move again. I would need a Life Alert butto…

Interesting. Thank you for posting.

Watch your cats behavior closely because they are good at hiding things until it's almost too late.
