Meet Ciuchcia, the steam engine dog
Ciuchcia was left for dead on a railway track in Poland. But now, she has been given a new lease of life -- with wheels replacing her paralyzed back legs.
Meet little Ciuchcia, a 4-month-old orphaned German shepherd, who shows resilience to an early life of abuse as he chases a kitten with the help of a specially made wheelchair at a shelter for homeless animals in Poland. Ciuchcia (Polish for “steam train engine”) was paralyzed when he was run over by trains after being abandoned on tracks. What a testament to this courageous canine’s will to survive!
