Special dog for special needs

<p>Dare, a two-legged Sheltie dog used in therapy for disabled people romps on the grass after a visit to multiple sclerosis patients in Denver, Colorado July 16, 2009. Dare was born with all four legs but his back left leg was bitten off and his left front leg was caught in a cage and broken in several places. Now Dare visits amputee clinics, special needs schools and MS patients to inspire them and help them forget their problems with owner Tami Skinner (R). Dare is able to walk and run on his two legs just like any dog.    REUTERS/Rick Wilking</p>
