A rescue dog who survived being shot in Cyprus has cheated death a second time after a lucky escape on the motorway.
Cola was brought over to the UK after being adopted by a couple from Nantwich.
They found the four year old in a Cypriot rescue centre - X Rays revealed that his body was peppered with bullets.
But Cola's journey to his happy ever after suffered another blow - he escaped from a cargo centre after being flown to the UK and was hit by a car on the M65 motorway.
A specialist vet managed to save the liver pointer against the odds - performing complex surgery to his shattered leg.
Rebecca said "When we got to the vets, Cola wasn't in a great way and we were told he would either have to be put down or referred to a specialist."
"After everything we'd been through to get him here, we didn't want to give up on him.”
Cola's bones have now healed really well and he is back with his new family.
Vet Charlie Sale of Oakwood Vet Referrals said despite what he's been through, cola is "such a lovely, happy and friendly dog, and so trusting"
