Roosevelt The Off-Roading Dog



Shelter dog Roosevelt was born with deformed front legs, which made running around impossible for the poor little guy until his new owner Stephanie created this wheelchair rig for him.

Now Roosevelt likes to take his wheels off road, tearing it up and playing like a pup again.

Here's an inspiring word from his owner:
The only difference between Roosevelt and other dogs is that instead of a collar I snap on his wheels to take him out. … People think he should have been put down because they think he’s suffering. 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?

Roosevelt has a sweet set of wheels, and a pretty sweet owner in Stephanie as well. Not bad for a dog considered by some to be destined for euthanasia, eh?!
