Two-legged Dog – level 2

17-04-2018 07:00

Tobi is a dog from Texas who was born only with hind legs. However, he is a very happy dog and a lot of people online like him.

Tobi is two years old and walks on his hind legs and does not mind this, but it is not good for him. Walking on his hind legs compresses his spine and could make him paralysed. Luckily, people sent him almost 4,000 dollars for a set of wheels. He will use the wheels instead of his front legs.

People ordered the wheels for Tobi, and he should have them in three weeks.

Difficult words: hind (at the back), compress (put under pressure, push together), spine (the backbone).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
