Sandra Bullock proud owner of disabled dogs
Posted on January 22, 2010 under Industry News
Sandra Bullock may be known as an acclaimed actress, but she’s also a supporter of disabled animals. Bullock is the owner of two rescue dogs, Ruby and Poppy.
However, these aren’t typical rescue dogs. Ruby has two legs and Poppy has three, according to PeoplePets.com. Bullock has said that her dogs go everywhere with her, because, as she feels, who else would walk a two-legged dog?
Bullock considers herself a proud mother, constantly showing pictures of her dogs to anyone who wants to see them – including attendees of the recent Golden Globe award ceremony!
"We were just showing [fellow nominee] Emily Blunt pictures of the two-legger, and I don’t know if she was horrified or what," she joked to the news provider.
Bullock’s story could inspire other people to adopt animals with disabilities. As Bullock feels, just because an animal is missing legs does not mean it’s in bad dog health. The actress told the news source that there are probably plenty of normal-looking dogs with emotional issues.
Unfortunately, disabled dogs may have a higher risk of being euthanized in a shelter. Statistics from the Humane Society show that an estimated 3-4 million animals are euthanized every year, and sometimes the sicker ones are the first to go.
