Robin, a dog rescued from Romania after being born with only two functional legs. Watch the SWNS SWREX story; A cute and adorable puppy made the most of being born with deformed front paws by running around like a T-REX. The adorable Robin is forced to move by standing on his hind legs and running like a dinosaur, his deformed front paw resembling the forelimb of a Tyrannosaurus rex. The happy pooch was rescued from imminent death by British charity Safe Rescue for Dogs in the same Eastern European village where kangaroo pup Roo was rescued earlier this year. Zoe Hare, 42, a charity worker, said: “Robin doesn't know anything different and doesn't understand there's something wrong with him.” With the same enthusiasm as a four-legged puppy, he dives into everything.
An absolutely adorable puppy ignored the fact that he was born with deformed front feet by curling up like a T-REX.
The adorable Robin is forced to move by standing on his hind legs and running like a dinosaur.
It balances itself by holding its deformed front paw like the front limb of a Tyrannosaurus rex and using its tail.
The happy dog was saved from imminent death in the same Eastern European village by British charity Safe Rescue for Dogs.
Charity worker Zoe Hare, 42, said: “Robin doesn't know anything different and doesn't understand that there's anything wrong with him.”
“He throws himself into everything with the same enthusiasm as four-legged puppies.”
Robin gets around by stomping like a dinosaur and jumping around, much to the amusement and consternation of onlookers.
Karen Stanway, 31, has adopted the happy pup and hopes a pair of wheels will give him a new lease on life.
The single mother, who worked as a veterinary nurse before taking time off to care for her baby, fell in love with seven-month-old Robin before she even met him.
Safe Rescue, a charity, rescued the two-legged puppy from Romania and placed an advert to find him a new home.
"He's absolutely fantastic, we only got him last Saturday and he's settling in really well," she said.
“He plays with my other dog, Allie, and goes for walks despite his disability.”
Karen noted that despite his outgoing demeanor, she often received strange reactions from onlookers.
“When we take it out, people sometimes give us dirty looks,” she explained.
“I heard someone muttering during his break that he should have gone to sleep but he's a very happy dog and doesn't know there's anything wrong with him.”
Karen also reported that despite his enthusiasm for life, Robin, a cross-breed Jack Russell Collie, quickly tired of the extra energy he expended using only his hind legs.
"It had been a few weeks between the time I inquired about him and actually got him, so I sat down to set up the ramps and gates, and came up with as many ideas as I could to improve his life," she explained.
“He's just a kid and he's desperate to run, so a set of wheels is the best option at the moment.”
Karen reported that the pup is “absolutely loyal” to her five-year-old daughter, Penny.
She continued, saying: "We are desperate to see him enjoy the freedom he deserves. He is a special, happy boy, and despite everything he has been through, he deserves this opportunity."
