Homeless Dachshund Found With Broken Body After Surviving Hurricane Takes His First Steps Without Pain

 Elton was dragging his broken body on the pavement after Houston's Hurricane Harvey when he was rescued. Vets didn't think they could help him, but watch what this little guy did...

Elton was in such horrible form and had so many bones shattered in his entire back end when Vet Ranch initially evaluated him that he was on the verge of needing to be euthanized. Dr. Matt wrote, "We didn't know if surgery was even possible." But Elton was a warrior, so they decided to try surgery. After Hurricane Harvey, Elton was seen dragging his damaged corpse through the streets of Houston.

They don't know if he belonged to someone or was a stray, but he was in need of assistance.

Watch as Elton, as Vet Ranch describes him, pulls through and takes his first steps without discomfort. What a remarkable recovery!
