For an unknown reason, Speedy had suddenly lost the ability to use his front legs.
His owner asked them to put him to sleep because his disability kept him from even being able to sit up.
So a vet went out to have a look at the dog and bring him back to their clinic.
When he arrived at the clinic, Speedy was so happy and friendly that the vet quickly concluded that the joyful, sweet pooch deserved a real shot at life!
So, instead of putting Speedy to sleep they put him into rehab.
It was unlikely that he would make a full recovery, but they all agreed to try.
After all, miracles do happen and Speedy’s life was worth the effort.
It wasn’t long before the hard workers at Sidewalk Specials and especially Speedy began to be rewarded for their faith.
It took time and effort, but eventually Speedy began to walk on his own. It wasn’t pretty, but it was progress.
Rescuers used water therapy as well as other forms of physical therapy. After a month, Speedy was running!
That led to the next miracle…Speedy was adopted into a loving home.
From the brink of euthanasia to a beloved family pet..maybe Speedy should be renamed Lucky!
Thank goodness someone gave Speedy another chance to recover. It would have been a shame to throw a life away.
Sometimes all it takes is someone to really believe in you to make a miracle happen. Just ask Speedy, he knows.
