Zip runs agility in wheelchairZip isn’t just your average agility-loving, sheep herding Border Collie. Not only has Zip competed at a national level in both agility and herding, but she has continued to inspire people with her incredible spirit after becoming the victim of a hit-and-run accident.

At 10-years-old Zip was playing fetch with a group of children in her front yard when a car purposefully left the road to hit her. Zip suffered a dislocated spine and many other life threatening injuries that has required multiple surgeries.

The accident may have left scars on her body but her spirit is stronger than ever. Her love for agility continues to drive her forward despite the cart that holds up her back legs.

Check out this video of Zip doing a Glory Run at an Agility Trial and watch as she even tries to jump!

Good girl, Zip! You are an inspiration to us all!
