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.
