Wheelchair man and wheelchair puppy are the perfect match
Steven Jewell, who was injured in a car accident, took in Roo, a dog that nearly was put down due to its physical condition.

A dog that was nearly put down due to its physical condition has landed in the perfect home.

Roo is a young foster dog that was born without its front legs and now uses a homemade wheelchair to get around. Once Roo grows some more, he can make use of an official wheelchair. As for now, he's using a homemade roller crafted from PVC pipes and skateboard wheels.

His human, Steve Jewell, also uses a wheelchair following an injury in a car accident. Roo was not only a perfect fit, but he also gave Jewell a reason to keep on rolling. Thanks to his relationship with Roo, he has a new lease on life enjoying activities like zip lining and skiing.
