Dog was found abused and dying by stream, gains energy to wag its tail upon rescue

A badly beaten, paralyzed senior dog in Turkey was dumped by a stream. By all accounts, he shouldn't have been alive when rescuers found him. The rescuers feared that his injuries were too severe for him ever to recover.
When they brought the dog back to their clinic to assess his injuries, though, he wagged his tail at them. That's when the rescuers wondered if he didn't have a chance to survive, after all.

Rescuers took the senior dog to the Let's Adopt! Global rescue center where the dog was named Khan because of his "fighting spirit." Khan was incapable of standing or sitting, and could not lift himself up. But his spirit and his will to live were strong, and his rescuers were determined to help him recover.
Weeks of long, slow recovery and rehabilitation passed, and Khan smiled and wagged his tail every step of the way. Despite how cruelly a human being had treated him, Khan understood that his rescuers had nothing but love and compassion for him, and he willingly trusted their every move.
Due to his strong spirit and the loving care of his rescuers, Khan began to walk slowly and carefully around the rescue center. ​
When he had made a full recovery, Khan was adopted by a loving young woman who will make sure that he never suffers another day in his life.
Check out the moving video of Khan's rescue, recovery and adoption. Share this heartwarming story of the triumph of love with your family and friends on Facebook.
