Greta was in a terrible car accident that left her with no feeling in her back end. The vet told her owner, Kathleen Petty, that Greta "needed emergency and specialized care."

After her surgery, Greta showed no signs of improvement for days. She wasn't moving or eating. She needed a cathater to urinate. The outlook was not good.

"I grieved many times during the past six months, convinced Greta would never walk again," Kathleen told The CBC. "She is 10 years old."

But Greta beat the odds, one miracle after another. Watch the inspiring video below.
