He might be a bit wobbly, but that hasn’t stopped goldendoodle Josh from hitting the trail with his owners.

The two-year-old pup has a disability called Cerebellar hypoplasia, a neurological condition that affects his walking, and can mean he has a bit of a ‘bobble head’ when walking. It’s often known as wobbly animal syndrome, and is seen in cats and dogs most commonly.

Although it’s not curable, his owners Kim Elliott, 39, and her husband, Andrew Hangartner, 35, are determined to make sure it doesn’t affect his life, buying him a wheelchair so he can go where they go.

The Arizona pair fostered Josh after seeing a call from a local rescue centre, and say they weren’t fazed by the extra needs he might have.

‘I had tonnes of fostering experience but none with special needs, so I knew Josh would be a new challenge,’ says Kim.
