TWO-LEGGED PUPPY GETS WHEELCHAIR MADE FROM FISHER-PRICE TOY PARTS - “They found and dismantled a Fisher Price helicopter on wheels and used a ferret harness and pipes from a toy welding kit to make the rest.”
A one-month-old Chihuahua named Turbo was born without his two front legs. He was surrendered by his owners to The Downtown Veterinarian in Indianapolis because he had trouble getting milk from his mother. Turbo is so small that staff at The Downtown Veterinarian had to break down a toy helicopter and use the parts to make a custom wheelchair. Turbo has been undergoing physical therapy to gain strength. Read more from RTV6:
A Marion County couple surrendered the puppy to the staff at The Downtown Veterinarian on East 11th Street earlier this month. They explained the dog’s front legs hadn’t developed and, although his mother was feeding him those first few weeks, as soon as he was weaned, the other dogs weren’t letting him near any food.
Soon after he started eating regularly, they got to work figuring out how to make Turbo walk. Since dogs can’t be fitted for regular carts until they’re about six months old, they knew they would have to improvise.
They found and dismantled a Fisher Price helicopter on wheels and used a ferret harness and pipes from a toy welding kit to make the rest.
They do physical therapy with Turbo every day to strengthen his back legs. The staff said he mostly goes in circles on his cart, but he is getting better at using it every day.
"He’s very much a typical Chihuahua. He’s rowdy and loves to play and will attack your shoe," Birk said.
Let’s hope Turbo is adopted by a great family. Click here for the full story and here for more about The Downtown Veterinarian. You can also follow Turbo on Instagram and Facebook. (Photos via The Downtown Veterinarian)
