Sandy is not your typical dog. He was abandoned by his owner in Greece early on as pup, presumably because of his special condition – his bowed legs – that made it difficult for him to move around and standing up-right seem like a distant dream.

Yet, despite these challenges, Sandy remained excited about life and perhaps, as a result, captivated the hearts of many animal lovers thousands of miles away in England.

Once Hertfordshire, England-based animal shelter Mutts in Distress heard about Sandy’s story, they immediately set an action plan in place to fly him all the way to their little corner of the world to get Sandy back to full health and give him a fighting chance, hoping to provide him with the opportunity to walk like any other dog.

With the help of generous supporters, who raised hundreds of pounds, Mutts in Distress was able to give Sandy the rescue of a lifetime.

Late last year on Dec. 21, 2013, Sandy finally arrived at the shelter, and the veterinary staff at Cambridge Beehive Companion Care, who decided to take on Sandy’s leg operations for free, fell in love with him instantly.

But before any procedures could be done, Sandy had to be checked out to determine “how badly his legs [were] affected,” as Mutts in Distress writes.

He was pretty tired from his trip and all the medical attention, falling asleep not long after his first x-ray was over.

Thankfully, Sandy’s x-rays showed some promise and he was scheduled for his first leg surgery just a month later — woohoo!

Everyone was impressed by how well his first surgery went...

…as Sandy came out of it with a straight leg!

According to Mutts in Distress, Sandy’s vet made a cart for him to help him get around, yet apparently Sandy would have “none of that … determined to do it himself.” What a sweet, little wonder!

“This young boy is so happy despite all that life has thrown at him. Just incredible,” Mutts in Distress writes.

A few weeks after his first surgery, Sandy went in again to get his other leg straightened out.

Mutts in Distress reports that Sandy was “a little disoriented” after the second surgery and “now faces two months of healing, including physiotherapy.”

However, everyone is more than confident that he will pull through yet again as little Sandy has proved to be quite the fighter, refusing to not give up in the face of adversity.

Hello everyone am jesae by name, i looked forward to be a whole family again with a love spell, I actually got tired of living a depressing life. I was so unlucky that my husband fell out of love with me; he keeps threatening me with divorce paper almost everyday. But all I wanted in our home are positive thinking, love and happiness all the time. I wanted us to be good parent to our kids.When Dr. Bello stepped in with his helping hands via [email protected] I began to feel lighter on the inside, I stopped having that heavy feeling on my chest during the process of the love spell. Two days after, my husband started exhibiting some positive character. He confessed that he was thinking of me more recently even when he was with his girlfriend. I was overwhelmed when he came to me and apologized for every wrong he has done to me, I also apologized to him as well.
Dr Bello. I just want to say thanks for the patience and kindness shown to me during the whole spell process. My husband and I has been living happily after the love spell, none of his ex ever comeback. you can also call or whatsApp him on +1(917) 979-6387.

May God bless those vets and their staff for taking such good care of this poor little guy. And to think, he didn\'t even know he had a problem!! What a wonderful group of Drs, and technicians!!
Animals are God\'s gift to this earth, that HE made!! Dogs are so precious!! They have their own personality and totally understand us humans by their expression in their eyes. They are sooooo protective, loving, sensitive and brilliant! God is amazing to have even thinking of creating dogs, let alone. . .cats, birds, horses and so on.
The way one treats animals tells you what they are!!

I contacted him and told him my problems and he told me what to do, and i did it and he did a {love spell} for me. 28hours later, my boyfriend called me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. Thank you Dr Unity for saving my broken relationships and brought my boyfriend back to me!"..

DIVORCE AND MARITAL BREAKTHROUGH

It all started when my husband cheated on me with another woman unknowing to him that the woman is a wizard, the woman castes a spell on my husband which made my husband change his feelings towards me and the kids and broke our 6 years marriage. i was confused and stressed because of the pains of being a single mother, when i called a friend and explained my marital challenges to her, she instructed and directed me to contact a great powerful spell caster called Dr. Ugo Wonders living in Florida. i contacted Dr. Ugo and explained my problems, he assured me his help and it was 100% guaranteed. i provided the materials for the spell and in 48 hours, after Dr Ugo Wonders of [email protected] finished casting the spell, my husband was free from the evil woman spell and he came back home to us a day after begging us to forgive him. i was so shocked and short of words and here i am today happily testifying so the world can know how this great man helped me with his real powerful spell.
To every one with marital problem, divorce issues, lost lover or any relationship related issues, you can contact Dr. Ugo wonders the ultimate spell caster via his email address [email protected] or call his mobile number directly on +13863369876

Amazing! Testimony ON How to get your ex back fast AND SAVE YOUR BROKEN RELATIONSHIP AND MARRIAGES!EMAIL PROPHET EFE( [email protected] ) FOR URGENT HELP.100% GUARANTEE!!!!.

I was hurt and heart broken when a very big problem occurred in my marriage seven months ago, between me and my husband . so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce. he said that he never wanted to stay with me anymore, So he packed out of the house and made me and the kids passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he has moved on with his life, but he promised to always check up on the kids from time to time which he never did for 7 months. So on a faithful day,as i was coming back from work,i meant an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it\'s has really worked for him too. i never believed in spell,but i was left with no choice cos i was so confused and frustrated,i took his advices. Then he gave me the Email address of the spell caster whom he visited.( [email protected] ) . So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address he gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day. What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me, and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn\'t call me for the past 7 months, gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back. So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and my children. now our marriage is now stronger than it\'s were before with the help of PROPHET EFE, So i will advice you out there seeking solutions to your broken marriages or relationship problem contact PROPHET EFE ( [email protected] ), i assure you he is 100% guarantee .
