Nothing tugs at my heart quite like an animal in need. Whether they have been hurt or are just in need of some affection, animals of all shapes in sizes have always had a special place in my heart. A dog named Deepak was no exception when I heard his story.
When an animal rescue team in India received a call about a dog that had been hit by a train, they dropped everything and rushed to the scene! Upon arrival, the rescuers were shocked by what they saw. A tiny dog was laying by the tracks, seemingly unable to move.
As the team got closer they realized why the pup was not moving. When a train was passing by, the little dog had tried to get off of the tracks. When he was unable to move quick enough, the dog's legs were crushed by the train, which made it impossible to walk.
The rescuers had to move slowly toward the dog so that they did not scare him. If the dog tried to run away he would injure himself further. Once rescuer was able to get close enough to the dog to pet him and reassure him that everything was going to be ok.
The pup, luckily, seemed to trust the rescuers around him. Despite his injuries, the dog seemed to be in good spirits and was very calm. Once the rescuer knew that the dog trusted him, he picked up the pup and carefully carried him to the van. The rescuers then transferred the pup to an animal hospital so they could help him properly.
The team revealed they had never rescued a dog that had been so badly injured before. The rescuers were afraid that the damage was too severe and that they would have to put the poor dog to sleep. The doctors and rescue team, however, were determined to save the dog's life.
The doctors performed emergency surgery on the little dog. The surgeons were forced to remove two of Deepak's legs and partially remove one of his paws. After all was said and done, it was up to Deepak whether he wanted to make it through or not. The video on the next page will show you just how far Deepak has come.
