A six-week-old puppy named Tumbles was born without front legs. After being turned in to the Friends of the Shelter Dogs in Athens, Ohio, a kind supporter of the rescue offered to design Tumbles custom 3-D printed wheelchair to help him get around.
With the help of Humans at the Ohio University Innovation Center, the blond Terrier/Beagle mix recently received his new set of wheels that will help him learn to walk
Tumbles’ first attempts with his new wheels was a little choppy, but that’s to be expected. The group has also volunteered to provide their services to Tumbles as he grows and changes.
He’ll be getting lots of assistance and physical therapy though, to ensure his rear legs develop properly. He won’t be ready for adoption for a while yet, but in the meantime the little puppy is with an experienced foster family and surrounded by love.
