Here is max the Beagle. He is 9 years old and a constant companion to my son David. Max injured his back severely 6 years ago and his hind quarters were paralyzed. We took him to the vet and he said there was nothing that could be done as there was spinal cord damage. We agreed to try him on steroids for a week to see if it helped any. After a week there was no improvement so we were going to have Max put to sleep. The morning of the vet appointment I noticed a slight movement in one of Max's hind paws! We were just ready to put him in the car and take him to the vet. We decided to give him a little longer and within a month Max was walking again! He sometimes is a little wobbly and we have to go back on the steroids but he is doing well 6 years later! Max has one blue eye and one brown eye. I always thought it interesting the way the flash colors his eyes!
