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.
