Meet Kol, a dog born with no front legs in Tabuk City, Kalinga, who has defied the odds and lived a happy and active life. His story is an inspiration to us all and a reminder that we should never judge a dog by its appearance.

Meet Kol, a dog who was born with no front legs in Tabuk City, Kalinga. But don't let that stop you from being amazed by his story.

Kol was born with a condition called congenital limb deficiency, which means he was born without his front legs. His owner, Sherri May Dalanao Dadufalza, said that Kol has two other siblings who were born with all four legs.

When Kol was first born, Sherri and her family thought that he might not survive. But Kol is a fighter. He learned to walk with his two back legs using his chest as support. This made him look like a kangaroo.

"He walks like a kangaroo," Sherri said. "His chest is like his platform, and he hops around using his back legs. It's really cute."

Sherri was not a dog person before, but she fell in love with Kol at first sight. She knew that he was special and deserved a chance to live a happy life.

"Siyak ket haan nak met a talaga mahilig iti as-aso ngem idi panagkitak pay lang ket, 'ay dapat daytoy mabiyag.' Isunga kunak kenni mamak, alak lattan daytoy ta kailangan na a mabiyag, padakkelek," Sherri said.

Sherri has been taking good care of Kol, and he is doing great. He has regular check-ups and vaccinations, and he is always happy and playful. Sherri said that she is grateful to have Kol in her life, and she encourages others to adopt dogs with disabilities.

"No matter what a dog looks like, they deserve to be loved and cared for," she said. "Kol is a special dog, and he has brought so much joy into my life. I am so grateful to have him."

Kol's story is an inspiration to us all. He shows us that anything is possible if we never give up on our dreams. He is a reminder that we should never judge someone based on their appearance, but instead focus on their heart and personality.

If you are looking for a furry friend to add to your family, consider adopting a dog with a disability. They may not have all four legs, but they will love you with all their heart.
