MENANDS, N.Y. -- One of the dogs found injured on railroad tracks in Albany received a new prosthetic paw.
Hudson, along with two other pitbull puppies, were found in September 2012 on the railroad tracks at North Pearl Street with severe injuries to their left rear paws.
Hudson received his first prosthetic paw in November 2012, but needed an adult one now that he is older.
Animal Orthocare in Virginia provided the new paw and made the trip to the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society in Menands to fit Hudson with it. Hudson's owner said the dog has already made a great deal of progress.
"Even with this first, the trial prosthetic from this new company, he's already shown tremendous progress. Not many parents would be happy their dog jumped on the table, but he used his hind legs to get his front paws up on the table and that was a really amazing day. We were crying because we were so happy to see him do that," said Hudson's owner Richard Nash.
Doctors were on hand to teach Nash how to help Hudson walk and run with the new paw.
