From living in deplorable conditions in a Lone Star State garage to rolling down the runway in a Big Apple fashion show, Effie the pit bull is showing the world anything is possible.

The six-month-old pup was rescued last year after Apollo Support and Rescue found her living in a plastic bin inside a Fort Worth, Texas garage.  She was covered in urine burns and could not move the lower half of her body.

Monica Brown, the rescue’s special needs coordinator, offered to foster the pup and named her Effie. “It was very hard to see,” Brown said. “All she wanted was your attention. It broke my heart. She was my first paralyzed puppy.”
