Ten-year-old dachshund has helped scientists achieve a medical breakthrough that could help treat paralysis.

    A 10-year-old dachshund, Jasper, has helped scientists achieve a medical breakthrough.

    After researchers took some cells from the paralysed dog's nose and implanted them in his injured spine as part of a new study, Jasper could walk again.

    There is hope it could help treat people who are immobile.
