Zach Skow, founder of animal rescue Marley’s Mutts and Pawsitive Change Program, adopted a 7-year-old poodle mix named Cora who will inspire you to live life to the fullest no matter what you go through. The adorable dog was in a terrible car accident that broke both her legs, her pelvis and her hips, she not only survived, but she is thriving — on her two hind legs.

Cora has adapted to having just two legs very well. She sits on her hind legs and even runs around with other dogs and bounces around happily.

Skow told Daily Mail that Cora “makes everything better,” and that “She, quite simply, is always in the moment and never allows a moment to go by without truly living it to 100 per cent.”

Cora tags along with Skow on his Pawsitive Change Program which pairs prison inmates with shelter animals and Cora is a big hit there. At the juvenile detention center, she is called “the miracle girl.”

She truly is a miracle girl. She not only survived a traumatizing ordeal, but she now enjoys life no matter what. Skow lovingly wrote on his Instagram page that Cora is the family’s role model. We can totally see why — she is strong and a symbol of hope and positivity.
