Paralysed to playing: A US dog's remarkable recovery after car crash

Owners of a paralysed dog documented his remarkable recovery after being hit by a car, with vets saying that he'd never walk again.

Following the crash on March 13 the golden retriever, named Rivers, had been unable to stand to pee or sit up on his own until he stood up for the first time on April 8

After weeks of having to flip Rivers over to keep him from getting bed sores, the persistent pooch powered through his physical therapy and can now walk with a wobbly gait.

The filmer commented: "I hope anyone who is in a similar situation reads this and knows they are not alone and that miracles can happen when you refuse to give up."
