Stars help two-legged dog
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Like any good Hollywood transplant, Scooby-Roo went from a troubled past to rehab.
The two-legged dog has celebrity friends like Demi Moore and Alyssa Milano. He has a therapist and a personal trainer and can look forward to a masseuse and acupuncturist.
But it didn’t start out that way. The 11-month-old mutt was born without front legs and dumped in south-central Los Angeles. He and his sister Sophie were found living in a wrecked, abandoned car near a freeway on ramp. He was covered in blood from scooting around on the asphalt.
A pair of good Samaritans caught the dogs and took them to Sheila Choi, who runs Fuzzy Dog and Cat Rescue, Inc., in Santa Monica. The dog, named for his Scooby-Doo! colouring and kangaroo hop, got a therapist for his emotional scars and a personal trainer to help with the wheels.
