This cute pup will hop her way into your heart.
Born without her front legs and abandoned on the street by her original owners, Estrella, a one-and-a-half-year-old mutt, is better known as the "kangaroo dog," and this pup's disability does not hold her back.
Adopted by a couple running an animal shelter in the small Peruvian town of Tinga Maria, Estrella has gained celebrity status by hopping around -- just like a kangaroo.
An increasing number of visitors have come to the shelter since her arrival, with many families eager to adopt her.
Ivan Escobar and his wife Elva Carhuaz say they are taking advantage of the plucky pup’s fame to help raise money for the shelter and awareness of animals born with disabilities.
The couple found Estrella when she was six months old, and as for her unique way of walking, they have a very accepting explanation:
"She is like a baby who starts learning how to walk. That is how we see her, from that day (they found Estrella) until today, that is what she learned," Carhuaz said.
