It’s unfortunate that some people are cruel to animals. They don’t understand that these creatures need love and care like humans do. Thankfully, though, some people go above and beyond to make things right. And this somehow makes up for the horrible experiences that some stray dogs go through.
This is what happened with a stray pup named Hudson. Some cruel people tried to end his life early on. But a series of fortunate events changed all that.
He could have died while he was just a small puppy. But with the help of the humans in his life, he is now an inspiration and helps people feel good about themselves.
Nailed to the tracks
Hudson was around three weeks old when some good samaritans found him nailed to the wooden tie of a railroad track in Albany, New York. Someone left him and his two other siblings there to die. The injury to his rear left paw was so severe that vets had no other choice but to amputate it.
The pup was very traumatized by what had happened in his life that he became withdrawn and deeply scared of humans. He tried to keep away from people as much as he can.
Thankfully, a kind man named Richard Nash came in and adopted him. Despite the challenges of raising a traumatized dog, the kind Albany native made it his mission to give Hudson a good life.
Richard patiently waited for Hudson to come out of his shell. His plan was simple, show the pup love and attention and let him discover that humans can be trusted. And it worked. Hudson transformed to become a very gentle and loving dog.
When the special-needs dog grew to his full size, he was given a plastic prosthesis so he can move around better. This allowed him to train as a therapy dog and visit senior living facilities, hospitals, and schools.
People start to smile and feel good every time he enters a room. Learning about how he survived his own obstacles has given them hope and inspiration.
