Roosevelt, a high-energy border collie with two deformed front legs, uses a wheelchair to support the front of his body.

Roosevelt’s owner Stephanie Fox adopted him from New England Border Collie Rescue in Portland, Maine three years ago.
 
Knowing full well that the herding breed demands almost constant activity, Fox adapted a wheelchair usually used on a dog’s hind legs for Roosevelt’s two front legs.

"The only difference between Roosevelt and other dogs is that instead of a collar I snap on his wheels to take him out," she told the Bangor Daily News.

"People think he should have been put down because they think he's suffering 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?"
