Woman sees her dog walk for the first time after miracle surgery
After his surgeon was unable to remove excess bone during surgery near his spinal column, Sammi the Springer Spaniel's health declined.
The puppy needed intense rehabilitation as he became quadriplegic post-surgery and his family prayed for a miracle. His owners brought him to the California Animal Rehabilitation centre in Santa Monica, California, where doctors feared that the outcome was bleak.
What happened next was a completely unbelievable to everyone around Sammi.
After three intense months of of daily rehabilitation, Sammi managed to defy all odds and took his first steps. This was the first time his owner had seen him walking again. Make sure you have tissues nearby! Credit to 'Little Things' and 'California Animal Rehabilitation'
