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