Paralyzed Puppy Dragged Herself For Miles In A Desperate Search For Help.

It's already bad enough that stray animals have to roam streets without proper food and shelter. But it's even worse when they become greatly injured and have no one to help.

Poppy is a poor pup that became paralyzed in her back legs. With no one around to aid her, she had to literally drag her legs for miles in search for help. Although she was in a region filled with dangerous wild animals, she somehow managed to make it in one piece to a camp where humans were. She was able to get the help she needed just in time.

This is Poppy. She had her spine crushed when she was a pup. As a result, her back legs became paralyzed.
