Meet little Ciuchcia, a 4-month-old orphaned German shepherd, who shows resilience to an early life of abuse as he chases a kitten with the help of a specially made wheelchair at a shelter for homeless animals in Poland. Ciuchcia (Polish for “steam train engine”) was paralyzed when he was run over by trains after being abandoned on tracks. What a testament to this courageous canine’s will to survive!
