8-week-old Lab puppy born with 6 legs finds her ‘furever’ home
KENT, England — A dog born with two extra legs has an extra hop in her step, thanks to love and understanding from her new human.
Roo, an 8-week-old Labrador puppy, was born with six legs — an extra leg attached to her right and left front legs.
Breeders were considering having her euthanized, but Lauren Salmon bought Roo after her 15-year-old son, Luke, spotted the pup online.
Luke said he felt an instant kinship with Roo because he’s been bullied due to a skin condition.
The family contacted a vet to see if Roo’s mobility can be improved.
Roo got her name because her boundless energy and birth deformity have made her hop like a kangaroo.
