Paralyzed Dog Successfully Recovers Thanks to Kind-Hearted Model

On a trip abroad to Thailand, Canadian traveler Meagan Penman spotted a paralyzed dog struggling to crawl across the beach.

Meagan instantly went to help the poor paraplegic, malnourished pup who had terrible wounds on his hind legs.

The dog had survived a terrible motorcycle accident, and whoever his owner was, did absolutely nothing to provide the dog with the medical care he so desperately needed.

She couldn’t find any rescues in Thailand who would take him in — but she knew if the dog didn’t get help soon he would die, maybe even right there on the sand.
