The puppy's dad was holding him when rescuers arrived, crying, desperate for them to save his little friend whose leg was clearly causing him so much pain.

When the puppy finally went home to his family, the man cried again, because his friend was alive ... and because now, they were just alike.

The man revealed to his rescuers that he too had endured a horrible injury and lost his leg, just like his little best friend.
