Youtube – Border Collie rescue visited us today to fine-tune Roosevelt’s front wheel cart – after he’d had it for only two months, he’s mastered his cart driving technique. Roosevelt was borne with deformed front legs that do not reach the ground.
PORTLAND, Maine — When Stephanie Fox went to see the puppy almost three years ago at New England Border Collie Rescue, she knew the breed didn’t always make the best pet. As an experienced owner of other border collies, she was well aware of their need for constant work and attention. So how much more of a challenge would it be if she adopted one with deformed front legs? “People think he should have been put down because they think he’s suffering,” she said. “But he wakes up happy every day. If you had a child with a disability you’d try to enrich them, give them opportunities. So why not do the same with a dog?”
This is why I love dogs. They can be dealt the shittiest hand in the world and they flat don’t care. Like do you think Roosevelt has ever felt bad for himself? Every had a moment when he’s been like “damn kind of sucks I was born with deformed front legs.” Nope. Not once. Not for one second. Bro thinks he’s the luckiest dog in the world. Just puts his wheels on and goes out and destroys life. Wagging his tail the entire time like he won the lottery. No time to feel bad for yourself when there is so much living to do.
