They say it's a dog's life, but for Estrella,born without her front legs, she's adapted to more of a kangaroo way of living.
The Peruvian mutt hasn't let her disabilityhold her back, gaining celebrity status in the small town of Tinga Maria.
The one-and-a-half-year-old has been adoptedby the owners of an animal shelter after being found abandoned in the street at six monthsold.
The centre, run by Ivan Escobar and his wife,has been receiving a larger number of visitors since the arrival of their new handicap member.
The couple has been taking advantage of Estrella'sfame to raise funds and, as a result, they've been able to take in more abandoned animals.
They said have loved watching her developher new walking skills.
Estrella's disability does not bring her downand she often plays with the shelter's dogs like a regular pup.
It's hoped she'll make families think twicebefore abandoning pets born with defects.
