A Labrador mix was born with two extra front legs which caused her to hop around while walking. Puppies from breeders born with deformities are often put to sleep as they are hard to sell, but luckily Roo was seen online and taken in by the perfect family.
Luke Salmon, 15, knows all too well what it’s like to be somewhat of an outcast. He suffers from psoriasis which leaves his skin covered in red patches, and he’s been bullied for it in school. The two are perfect for each other as they both have had to fight to overcome differences in life.
Dr. Noel Fitzpatrick is working with Roo to see if they can improve the pup’s mobility. The extra legs may get in the way of walking normally, but they don’t cause her any pain. Regardless, she is very loved.
“She’s just a normal dog to us — just with a couple of extra bits,” said Luke’s mom, Lauren.
