This little pup born with 6-legs found home with a bullied teen who was looking for a true friend

ANIMALS

Because she hops on her hind legs, the 8-week-old Labrador mix Roo was given the nickname “kangaroo.”

Roo, on the other hand, walks with her bottom in the air and leans on her elbows rather than using all fours as most animals do.

Roo has some difficulty moving like a normal dog because she was born with six legs, two more in the front than a typical dog would have.

Luke, Lauren Salmon’s 15-year-old son, saw an online advertisement for Roo from a breeder.

Since she was born with a defect and the breeder would likely euthanize her if they couldn’t find a home for her, their family knew they had to have her.

She bolted out of her enclosure and excitedly jumped up on her hind legs when they arrived at the farm to collect her. They could immediately tell how much joy she brought them despite her disability.

She was evidently full of life. Lauren Salmon’s 15-year-old child, Luke, found Roo promoted by a raiser on the web.

She bolted out of her enclosure and excitedly jumped up on her hind legs when they arrived at the farm to collect her. They could immediately tell how much joy she brought them despite her disability.

She was evidently full of life. We would describe her as placid but playful because she is so full of puppy energy. Salmon told Fox News, “There aren’t many dogs like Roo out there.”

She is priceless to us, but I believe the breeders eliminate them because they are worthless. Since Roo returned, Luke and Roo have become best friends, and he understands how it feels to be an outsider.

Luke was constantly bullied at school because he had psoriasis, a skin condition that causes red patches to appear all over the body. Roo shares his new best friend with him now!

Roo has a new dog sibling, two cats, and two rabbits, in addition to loving new humans. Salmon is currently collaborating with Dr. Noel Fitzpatrick to determine ways to enhance Roo’s mobility.

She does not feel any pain from her two extra legs, despite the fact that they prevent her from walking normally.
