The Rossis looked for Loki for hours, but it was a phone call that alerted them to the terrible news. The 14-month-old dog was in intensive care after he had been hit by a train not once, but 13 times, according to the story recounted on his GoFundMe page.
Loki was hit by the first train at 10:30 a.m. and the trains continued to run over him until around 4:30 p.m, ABC News reported.
After being hit the first time around, it was assumed Loki was dead.
When a train conductor passed through a second time around, marking the 13th train that met the dog, he saw Loki lift his head, signaling that, despite all the hurt he had suffered, he was still alive. Loki was rushed to the WestVet Animal Emergency Center where he was identified by his microchip.
Loki lost a leg, an eye and his tail, in addition to suffering from severe head trauma and lacerations, according to his GoFundMe page.
