Lawson was living as a street dog in the outskirts of Istanbul when he was hit by a car and could no longer use his back legs. Forced to drag himself on the pavement to search for food, the one-year-old dog was starving to death!
When He’art of Rescue saw Lawson, they knew they had to do something!
You can see cut up his legs are from having to drag himself along the ground.
Although Lawson’s spine is beyond repair he is relearning how to walk with a wheelchair.
Here he is a few days after his rescue taking his first baby steps in his new chair.
Here he is playing with his new friends!
