A California family is raising money for a dog with an unusual condition. The 9-month-old golden retriever doesn't have use of her front legs.

Her name is Rexi, like the dinosaur T-Rex.

"She can stand up and use her back legs fully, and then she scoots around on her chest kind of like a snail," owner James Cassidy told ABC News.

After several doctor's visits, the family doesn't have any answers on why Rexi's legs are backward.

The couple has started a GoFundMe account. They've raised more than $15,000 dollars for her medical care.

According to ABC News, the family is working with Kolman Prosthetics to create a cart and body suit so Rexi can run with comfort.
