Those who work in animal shelters and humane societies are not always prepared for what is about to come their way. While they handle sad and injured animals on a daily basis, there are some who manage to tug on the heartstrings more than others. The Asheville Humane Society recently learned this lesson firsthand, when a puppy arrived that was in desperate need of their help.
They had no way of preparing for what was coming to them: a puppy who went by the name of Rumble. Rumble had a rough go of things before making his way to the Asheville Humane Society. You see, he had zero control over his hind legs and as you can imagine, this severely limited his ability to move from place to place.
It did not take them long to realize that Rumple was paralyzed and without their help, he was in serious danger of euthanization. Dogs like Rumple are often left on the side of the road, since families are not usually in the market for a dog with his kind of problems. They would much rather adopt a pup who can make their way around more easily.
Fortunately for Rumple, these good people did not want to give up on him. They decided to provide him with a much needed second chance at life. Acupuncture treatment is commonly associated with humans who are struggling with back related issues, but they used this form of alternative medicine to treat Rumple’s condition.
The miracle that would soon take place was incredibly shocking, even to the closest observers. The acupuncture treatments were even more effective than expected and Rumple’s tiny little toes began to wiggle. What started as a minor twitch soon became a crawl. From there, the crawl turned into a run and a puppy who was once left for dead would complete his dramatic transformation into the kind and loving pet that he is today.
Rumple now has complete and total use of his hind legs and is no longer paralyzed! Just take a look at this amazing video!
Isn’t this one of the most incredible things that you’ve ever seen? This puppy’s story is a testament to what can happen when you are surrounded by people who believe in you and provide you with the second chance that you so richly deserve.
