A Philadelphia rescue shelter claimed Lucky, a pit bull mix, is ” growing” after getting adopted by one of the people who saved him.
Lucky, a paralyzed dog found abandoned on train tracks in Philadelphia, has actually finally found a family to love him after he was adopted by one of the people who saved his life.
The pit bull mix was left for dead on the tracks in November 2022 and endured through a two-day ordeal. Lucky’s rescuers believe the dog’s spinal cord was severed by a passing train before animal fans found the dog.
Philly Rescue Angels, INC, a nonprofit in Pennsylvania that cares for abandoned animals, said in a Facebook post at the time that Lucky “has been laying here for TWO DAYS, he has actually been laying his body down, and the train has been going over him … We are heartbroken, this is pure evil!”
And while the story started heartbreaking, new grinning photos of Lucky show how much his has actually changed for the better. Philly Rescue Angels shared an upgrade on Monday that Lucky, a name the organization gave the dog, is currently “adopted, thriving, and knowing nothing however love for the rest of his life.”
The team said one of the women who saved Lucky from the tracks is now the pooch’s animal parent. Lucky currently shares a home with numerous other dogs “that he is so pleased with,” the rescue team said, adding, “The most deserving kid has FINALLY found his happy ending.”
