“When he came to us he was terrified and scared,” Shevach Appel, spokesperson for the shelter, told The Dodo. “He'd flinch whenever anyone held out their hand to pet him. He was very sore and sad.”
Later named Ben-Ben by rescuers, the puppy was examined by veterinarians who determined his back legs were fully paralyzed from being hit by the cars. When he tried to walk, his back legs would drag behind him, so he was fitted for a wheelchair to help him get around — and let him finally run with the other dogs.
