Hudson and Pearl, who have been known as the Railroad Puppies, turn one-year-old today!

The brother and sister have come a long way since they were found by railroad workers abandoned and abused on train tracks in Albany last September. A third puppy died from its injuries, but Hudson and Pearl survived. Hudson, whose left-rear limb was severed, now walks with a prosthetic paw.

After recovering at the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society, they were each adopted by loving families; Hudson heading to his home in Schodack and Pearl heading to her home in Poestenkill.

Hudson is now training to become a registered therapy dog to help inspire others to persevere.

August 20th is their birthday, according to the paperwork from the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Hudson and Pearl, from NEWS10!
