It is truly incredible how often a proper dose of devoted TLC can transform a grim-looking situation into a triumphant recovery.
When Imgur user poltrgiest of Queensland, Australia, heard desperate croaking emanating from his bedroom, he immediately set out in search of its source.
Much to his surprise, he found a tiny frog, covered in his dog’s slobber and hair. She’d seemingly been attacked, looking both completely terrified and physically ailed. Only one of her legs seemed to be functioning properly.
So, her caring rescuer hopped into action. He set this little frog up in a shallow water bath, giving her room to stretch and relax her injured limbs.
Noticing that his new friend was struggling to keep her head above water, this amphibian lover gave her a little “lily pad” on which to rest. About an hour later, this survivor was pulling herself onto the lily pad, kicking her legs, gripping things, and seeming much more chipper.
And moments later, she did the unthinkable — she hopped! With this strong improvement under her belt, her rescuer deemed this little frog ready to reenter the wild.
