A Labrador mix was born with 2 extra front legs which caused her to hop around while walking. Pups from breeders born with deformities are usually put to sleep as they are hard to sell, however fortunately Roo was seen online and absorbed by the perfect family.
Luke Salmon, 15, knows all also well what it resembles to be somewhat of a castaway. He struggles with psoriasis which leaves his skin covered in red spots, and also he’s been bullied for it in school. The two are best for each other as they both have actually had to fight to overcome differences in life.
Dr. Noel Fitzpatrick is working with Roo to see if they can improve the pup’s movement. The additional legs might get in the way of strolling normally, but they do not cause her any type of pain. Regardless, she is really loved.
“She’s simply a normal canine to us– just with a couple of extra bits,” said Luke’s mother, Lauren.
