Jasper: the paralysed dog that is walking again

Dachshund Jasper took part in a trial along with 33 other dogs, where they were treated with cells from their nose.

About four and a half years ago he sustained an injury while out walking, leaving him without the use of his back legs.

Jasper was given the treatment about six months later and now is back walking with his owners May and Peter Hay, and even keeps up with fellow kennel mates Hector and Dolly.
