A two-legged chihuahua, named Rocket, surprised his adopted owner by learning to leap like a kangaroo. Rocket, an eight-and-a-half-month-old rescue dog, was given away after he arrived with serious birth defects.
He was taken in by Krissy Koller, from Columbus, Georgia, and has proved that his disability can’t and won’t slow him down.
The playful pup propels himself at alarming speed by leaping and bounding on two legs like a cute kangaroo/dog hybrid.
Rocket can eat, drink and run unassisted, and the energetic dog is even a strong swimmer.
His owner Krissy, said: “Rocket’s name really sums up his personality – he’s a ball of energy”
This just goes to show how important it is that dog rescue centers exist and that owners such as Krissy, have the big hearts needed to save and care for them.
