Paralyzed Dog Learns to Walk

Mika Cyphert is a New Jersey resident who has successfully rehabilitated her paralyzed puppy, Sunshine, and taught her how to walk. Sunshine had suffered an injury that left her with a “very poor prognosis to ever walk again.”

Videos uploaded to Cyphert’s YouTube page show the various methods Cyphert undertook to help Sunshine walk, including extensive physical therapy, hydrotherapy, laser treatment, acupuncture, using a balancing ball, as well as time spent in a wheelchair to strengthen her posture.

The end result was that Sunshine learned how to run and play with Cyphert’s other dogs just like she had before her injury. Storyful has gathered a selection of videos from Cyphert’s YouTube page below.
