A beloved family dog ​​who was hit by a train and critically injured miraculously survived.

The ‘wonder dog”s owners had just returned from holiday in England when they received the shocking news that their beloved Shar Pei had been taken to the emergency vet, reports have said Manchester evening news.

Amy and Reece Parkinson, from Aspull in Wigan, rushed out of the airport as fast as they could to get to Leigh, where Reggie was being held on 18 June.

The dog, Reggie, stayed at Amy’s father’s house while they were in Spain.

But the sneaky dog ​​managed to escape from the garden and get onto the train tracks behind the house.

“Mr. Crinkles, as he is also known, had his tail severed and suffered dozens of lacerations to his head and body, as well as various fractures and dislocations to his limbs.

“There were questions we had to answer about whether we needed to euthanize him as we didn’t want to cause him unnecessary pain,” Ms Parkinson said.

“We went to the vet the next morning where he was in a small cart. The vet prepared us before we went to the room.

“When he heard Reece’s voice, he wanted to get out of his shopping cart and cried for him. The vet said he couldn’t believe he was stable and that it was a miracle.

“They believed that the train must have hit him on the left side. Miraculously, he has no spinal damage and no damage to his organs.”

To the shock of the family, Reggie had to have his left rear leg amputated as a result of the injury.

Further future surgery on his fractured pelvis is being considered once he builds up some strength.

The family said the children were “heartbroken” to find only their Frenchie and Jack Russell Cross Grem waiting to greet them when they returned home from the holidays.

But he’s home now, much to the delight of Amy and Reece’s two-year-old daughter, Willow.

Reggie is now on the road to recovery and is building strength, eating and drinking every day – even on just three legs.

There will also be ongoing hydrotherapy expenses to help Reggie with rehabilitation, which is one of the reasons the family a GoFundMe page to help with costs.

Reggie was born with a very rare neurological condition called mega esophagus which meant he could not be insured.

As such, they do not have insurance that covers this life-saving treatment.

This condition also meant that he had to take his food in an upright position, which required the help of a special chair.

The family have already spent more than £4,000 on surgery to amputate his leg and have other costs in the pipeline.

Amy and Reece already have expenses for raising a family with Willow and six-month-old Pearl.

The 30-year-old lawyer and 31-year-old designer were therefore stunned to see how much the fundraiser had raised over the course of three days – more than £5,000.

“It was really overwhelming to see all the donations,” she said.

“My brother told me to try the fundraiser because Reggie deserved it and whatever rest we don’t deserve we could just put on credit cards.

“If we got a couple of hundred pounds that would have been better than nothing. We couldn’t believe it when we saw how much we already have.

“Even people we don’t know made donations, which we didn’t expect. I break down when I see it.”
