MJ's kids: Scooby-Roo deserves legs, too

It's not exactly "We Are the World" or "Heal the World," but it counts.

TMZ is reporting that Michael Jackson's eldest kids, Prince and Paris, have fallen for Scooby-Roo, a 6-month-old puppy likely born without his front legs and dumped in a bad neighborhood, after seeing his story on the local news. The siblings now hope to help raise $2,000 for a custom-made cart to help the pooch walk.

According to Scooby-Roo's Web site:
Because he is a growing puppy, Scooby-Roo must be fitted into multiple carts at different stages of his life. Furthermore he will need professional therapy as Scooby-Roo has had a horrible start — his hind legs are very weak, and his hind foot was twisted from being left on the streets all alone from a young age.
Like how the kids are following in their dad's charitable footsteps? Consider starting with the man in the mirror and adding a little change yourself.

It's worth noting, by the way, that Prince and Paris' daddy was famously afraid of dogs - even his best friend Elizabeth Taylor's tiny white Maltese, Sugar. "She know I don't like that dog because I'm afraid of dogs," he admitted on his Private Home Movies special. "They're little, but they bite."
