Dog moves like a kangaroo - level 2

Dog moves like a kangaroo - level 2

13-01-2016 07:00

A dog in Peru was born without her front legs. The owners of an animal shelter found her abandoned in the street at six months old. The owners adopted her.

The dog has no front legs but learned to move like a kangaroo. She often plays with the shelter dogs like a normal dog.

She also became a local celebrity. People visit the dog shelter to see her and bring money to the shelter. With the extra money, the shelter can help more abandoned animals.

Difficult words: abandoned (left alone without help), owner (a person who owns – has something), shelter (a safe place).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
