AnnapolisPet's Story or Bio
Austin is a two year old Border Collie mix who now lives in the Washington DC suburbs. He was rescued after jumping out of a car and damaging both front legs that required a double front amputation. He was adopted to his forever home just after his surgery and quickly grew his strength and learned how to use his wheelchair.
Even through his injuries he showed so much life. He is a happy boy who loves to play with everyone or snuggle up with his family. Austin wants to be just like every other dog and can go on trails, go swimming, and have awesome adventures.
He is also now a therapy dog who goes to colleges to visit students at finals, libraries to help kids learn to read, and hospitals to share his love and inspire others. He hopes to start going to VA hospitals also to visit with other amputees.
Austin inspires us every day with his big smile, love of life and drive to overcome all obstacles. His family is very blessed to have him and hopes to continue to spread his positivity through social media. You can follow along with his adventures on IG and Facebook @theaustinroo or on TikTok @theaustinroo7.
Handicapable, handsome, happy... You name it and this dog embodies it! Austin is truly a gift and is living his very best life!
