O'FALLON, Ill. (KMOX) - Some pretty miraculous recoveries have happened at a St. Louis-area farm turned into a haven for animals on the mend. But this story of a rescued lamb that was born paralyzed might be one of the best.

On March 18, Randy Grim of Randy's Rescue Ranch brought home the disabled, newborn lamb. But less than month later, the little guy named Leonardo is up and moving around all on his own.

You can watch video of the documented recovery at the top of this page.

Grim has become well known in the St. Louis animal-lover community for his huge social media presence and stories of dog and other animal rescue operations. He opened the Ranch in O'Fallon, Ill., in 2017 and has been caring for dogs, cattle, pigs, horses and many other creatures in need.

He's been sharing videos throughout the last month of Leo's recovery, which has included water treadmill therapy, walks in a wagon and some love from his new "dog family."
