Some people like winter. They want the white Christmas scene, and they enjoy doing winter activities like skiing and snowboarding. They also like building snowmen and snow angels with their kids.
On the other hand, some people hate winter. They do not like the cold temperature. They also do not like plowing the thick snow outside their homes. Moreover, they too do not like snowstorms.
Some dog breeds are built for cold weather conditions. Their thick fur helps them to endure the freezing temperatures outside.
Like young kids, dogs also enjoy playing in the snow. They like digging and running on the soft snow surface.
However, dogs with disabilities might not be able to enjoy the outdoors during winter. The wheels of the wheelchair might slip and become uncontrollable; thus, it might cause an injury to the dog.
A dog in a wheelchair enjoys winter so much; his fur mom put skis on the wheels.
Roosevelt is a Border Collie with leg malformation on his front legs. Roosevelt needs to be in a wheelchair so that he can move around. With the kind generosity and support of his foster family and donors, Roosevelt gets his wheelchair.
Roosevelt is an active dog despite his disability. He likes running outside even he’s in a wheelchair together with the rest of the pack.
Winter did not stop Roosevelt from having fun! His fur mom installed a pair of skis on his wheelchair to help him run on the slippery snow.
Watch the video below uploaded by Stephine Fox to see how happy Roosevelt is while playing with his dog buddies on the snow:
Roosevelt’s video on YouTube garnered more than 68,000 views. People who saw the short clip said they were entertained by seeing a dog with a disability having fun during winter.
Enjoy more winters, Roosevelt!
