The story of an injured Indian Stray dog

Here is the story of an Indian stray dog that got stuck in the gutter. A good samaritan came to its rescue and pulled it out of the gutter and left it on the street. However, the misery didn’t end there since the dog was severely injured by his hind legs. The dog could not even stand up and was lying helplessly on the street in extreme pain. Then came our friends from ‘Animal Aid Unlimited’ to help the innocent creature. They rescued this stray dog and gave him a second chance. Check out the video to witness the beautiful transition.
