A once-paralyzed pup is miraculously walking again after a rescue group gave him a second chance at life.
Jimmy the pit bull was hit by a car and left for dead in a ditch in Lilburn, Georgia in August. He had been lying alone for more than two days before he was found.
"Miraculously he survived!" Diva's Pit Bull Rescue wrote on Facebook, where they have been sharing Jimmy's incredible story.
The five-year-old pup was taken to BluePearl Veterinary Partners in Sandy Springs where Dr. Alan Cross discovered Jimmy had a broken back and heartworm, as well as bumps and scrapes.
The injuries left him partially paralyzed but the vet was determined to help him get back on his feet. With the help of donations, Jimmy underwent a four-hour operation to get two plates in his back.
Jimmy slowly learned how to stand again and the vet has since shared a video of him taking his first few steps - a testament to the dog's incredible resilience and the love and care of his rescue team.
