One Paralyzed Dog was Abandoned as He was Considered “Defective” – but then the Unexpected Happened

Zeus developed a degenerative nerve disease, which left him paralyzed. Rather than his family taking care of him, they abandoned him to a high-kill shelter to be euthanized as they didn’t want a “defective” dog. Often, it is the disabled dogs that are the first to be put down as not many want to adopt them. But Zeus received the unexpected – he got a second chance.


This special pooch has a remarkable story – it’s truly a miracle.


Check out this video capturing Zeus’ incredible journey:

Zeus never gave up – not matter what. His story can teach us a ton about overcoming setbacks and the value of determination. With the right therapy and attention, he went from paralyzed to walking, running and even climbing stairs!

This unbelievable story tells us a lot about what can be achieved when one is in a loving environment – amazing!
