Roo learns to walk again

Roo had a rough start on life. She was used as bait in a dogfighting ring and abandoned after she was injured. The good folks at Paws In the City in Dallas, Texas found her with her front legs paralyzed. She has a good foster home right now and they have helped her learn how to walk on her two hind legs. Roo looks like a special pup, with some very special people helping her out!

Wags to the good people at for the tip!

Check out this inspiring video:


  1. This video just made me bust out crying...but I am so proud of this little doggy. My husband asked "why do you watch that kind of stuff?" I told him that even though it's extremely difficult to watch, it's so important that people, especially dog lovers like me, don't turn a blind eye to this kind of evil. Ignorance will not make it go away....

  2. I teared up also. I loved that her tail was wagging like crazy as she bounced along on her hind legs. Cruelty to animals is unacceptable, yet so prevalent. It's heartwarming to know that Roo has found a home, but it also brings to mind the countless animals that don't survive their abuse.

  3. teared up for sure :-)), but good for Roo with the wagging tail!!

  4. Definately needed a hanky alert for this. Poor, wonderful Roo!!
