With two crippled front legs, it can’t be easy for this pup.

You’d never know it though, the way she hops around like…well, a kangaroo!

When rescued when she was just a tiny pup from Romania by Safe Rescue for Dogs in Norfolk, UK, 5 month-old puppy Roo (named for the animal she hops like) quickly found a home when Nikki and Ian Dick fell in love with the bouncy pup.

She’s also a local star!

As her proud pup parent Nikki told Roo doesn’t know any different to hopping on her two back legs but she still laps up all the fuss from people who always stop and do a double take when they see her because they think she is a kangaroo.

“Roo doesn’t know any different [from] hopping on her two back legs but she still laps up all the fuss from people who always stop and do a double take when they see her because they think she is a kangaroo.”

Roo, hats off to your indomitable spirit! If you want to help out Safe Rescue For Dogs, who brought Roo over from the streets of Romania, you can donate here!
