Danilo Codilego Jr. of Quezon City, the Philippines, adopted a dog that everyone else had left for dead. The dog was born without hind legs, and Codilego Jr. called her "Putol", which means "chopped" in the Tagalog language:
"I was the only one who had the courage to take care of her ... At first she couldn't walk. After two years, she began to balance herself. After six years, she can balance perfectly and walk with total control."
What an inspiration!
