Look At This Off-Roading Dog of the Day: When Roosevelt was adopted from a rescue shelter, she had limited mobility due to her two deformed front legs. New owner Stephanie didn’t want her to Border Collie’s herding instincts to go unfulfilled, so she jury-rigged a wheelchair that lets Roosevelt run everywhere.

“The only difference between Roosevelt and other dogs is that instead of a collar I snap on his wheels to take him out. … People think he should have been put down because they think he’s suffering,” she said. “But he wakes up happy every day. If you had a child with a disability you’d try to enrich them, give them opportunities. So why not do the same with a dog?”
