One particular pooch has absolutely wowed the internet this week after making a miraculous recovery before he was almost put down.
Read on for the incredible story...
It's safe to say that dogs are one of the world's most popular pets.
These lovable and loyal companions make the perfect household pets, and it also helps that they’re so damn cute.
They are truly man's best pals.
In fact, it's basically what unites the internet.
But one dog has really captured the internet's heart this week.
And his story is just adorable.
If you have a dog, you know one thing.
They love basically nothing more than going for a walk.
But when they get older, some dogs struggle to do the one thing they love most of all...
But one dog has beaten the odds this week and left everyone emotional.
The "miracle" dog became severely paralyzed and lost the use of his legs...
Amanda Large got the thirteen-year-old Shih Tzu Gizmo last year and was told he suffered a back injury earlier in life, which made him slow.
But a few weeks later he lost all ability to move his back legs or control his bladder.
Shortly after, he was unable to move at all, requiring Amanda's constant supervision.
However, Amanda didn't give up on him and got Gizmo back on his feet thanks to holistic treatment for pets...
Despite vets advising her to put him to sleep.
Amanda said: "When I first got Gizmo I was told he had suffered spinal injuries and that he would be a bit slow and unsteady on his feet, but I never imagined just how badly his condition would deteriorate.
"After a few weeks, his back end became completely paralyzed and he was unable to move his feet, control his bladder or even wag his tail."
"I managed to get Gizmo an MRI scan and discovered he had multiple problems with the discs on his back and I was told by a number of vets that the best thing to do would be to put him to sleep.
"I took him to Holistic Pet NI and I honestly cannot believe the results that we have had with his treatment, he is just getting better all the time."
Gizmo is now walking again and is in good spirits showing off his abilities and hunting around the house for food...
Amanda added: "It really is a miracle that he is able to walk again and you can see that it has made him so happy."
"Whenever he is walking around the kitchen looking for food, you can see how proud that he is that he is able to do this again. I always knew he was a little fighter but I never imagined he would be this strong."
Siobhan Menzies, of Holistic Pet NI, said she was amazed by how well Gizmo had done following his treatment.
"It is miraculous the turnaround that Gizmo has had, we really cannot believe the progress he has made and is continuing to make.
"He is such a lovely dog that is a little character with a big personality and we are very pleased to see him doing so well."
