Fact #1: all dogs are perfect and adorable and we love them. Fact #2: we love them even more when, despite coming from difficult backgrounds, they’re still happy and playful. Kangaroo came to Dog Tales Rescue and Horse Sanctuary from an animal rescue in Cairo and she immediately stole the hearts of everybody on staff—and anybody who spent even three seconds watching her on Dog Tales Rescue (Tuesdays at 9:30 p.m. ET on GustoTV).
Dog Tales regularly takes in dogs from shelters around the world that are overcrowded or unable to care for certain dogs who require special medical attention. When Dog Tales was contacted by animal rights advocate Doris to help out with 10 injured dogs in Cairo, co-founder Danielle immediately said she would take them all—a woman after our own hearts!
The bouncy Kangaroo was one of the dogs to make the trip from Egypt to King City, Ontario, and despite spending most of her life being mistreated by humans, she quickly became loving and affectionate with everyone she came in contact with. Kangaroo is missing her two front paws, probably from an inhumane amputation in her past, but that doesn’t slow her down—it just puts a little pep in her step.
While Kangaroo is clearly an uber-sweet pupper, her situation might make it hard to find a forever home. Dog Tales vet technician Lori is willing to foster her, but she’s hoping a loving family will adopt her someday.
“I’m really considering fostering her because I just don’t know who else is going to take a dog like her,” she said.
