No One Wanted to Help Paralyzed Dog Until A Tourist Sees Him Dragging Himself Across The Beach

On a trip abroad to Thailand, Canadian traveler Meagan Penman spotted a paralyzed dog struggling to crawl cross the beach. Meagan instantly went to help the poor paraplegic, malnourished pup who had terrible wounds on his legs.

The dog had survived a terrible motorcycle accident, and whoever his owner was, did absolutely nothing to provide the dog with the medical care he so desperately needed.

She couldn’t find any rescues in Thailand who would take him in — but she knew if the dog didn’t get help soon he would die, maybe even right there on the sand.

Because of his extreme condition, no rescues in Thailand were willing to take the pup. So, Meagan vowed to find a way to bring him back home to Canada.

Getting him overseas was no easy task, but thanks to many generous online donors, Meagan was able to raise the over $2,000 needed to help pay for the special needs pup’s trip.
