You could be forgiven for doing a double-take if you spotted Roo the wonderdog hopping out for a walk.
The five-month-old has got just two legs – but takes a kangaroo-like approach to getting around.
Her bouncing and jumping attracts a lot of attention from confused passers-by who mistake her for a marsupial, according to a report in the Daily Mail.
The plucky puppy, who was rescued from Romania, is thought to have been born with one front leg missing before suffering the loss of the other soon afterwards.
She was saved from death by British charity Safe Rescue for Dogs and had already learned to bounce with kangaroo-like ease when they brought her to the UK in November.
Soon afterwards, Roo – believed to be a cross between a collie and a whippet – was fostered by a nurse and her fireman husband Ian, who now plan to adopt her permanently.
A homesick cat used up at least one of its nine lives after surviving for six weeks stuck inside a chimney.
The moggy, named Chloe, endured a 20ft plunge before going weeks without food and water behind the sealed-up fireplace.
The stricken pet had been trying to get back into her home while her owners, Marianne and Patrick Wood, were on holiday, the Daily Mail reports.
The couple had arranged with a neighbour to look after Chloe in their absence, feeding her twice a day and letting her inside at night.
But the homesick cat decided to try to break in to the house – just two days after the Woods arrived in Vietnam for a six-week trip to see their son.
Their neighbours spent a week searching for Chloe but to no avail.
Then the day after the couple returned home they heard a pathetic meowing from behind the sealed-up fireplace in an upstairs bedroom.
Patrick used a knife to cut a hole through the sealant and found a skeletal-looking Chloe barely alive.
The white and ginger cat was rushed to a vets where she was found to have lost more than half her body weight and was given a 50/50 chance of survival. She was put on a drip and fed small amounts of food to help her build her strength up and is now well enough to be allowed home.
