Abandoned Pup Gets Another Chance At Life After 12-Yr-Old Boy Builds A LEGO Wheelchair

The lego wheelchair was perfect for her as it could be adjusted according to her growth. Finally, when she became old enough, she was fitted with an adult wheelchair.

The younger generation repeatedly proves that there is a lot of kindness remaining in the world.  A puppy named Gracie was born without her front legs and was abandoned by her owners. When she finally made it to the vet's office, she had no hair around her eyes and maggots crawling all over her. But, there was much more in store for her. She recovered fully and was adopted by the Turney family which runs an animal shelter. While they were familiar with raising pets, raising a pup without front legs wasn't going to be an easy task.  



 

They were owners of one paralyzed dog and another who’s missing a limb, which made them very familiar with raising a disabled pet. The only worry they had was about Grace's mobility and how to improve it. Since the puppy was growing rapidly, she was not eligible for a wheelchair fitting just yet but she also needed an easy solution that she could grow out of. That's when  12-year-old Dylan swooped in to save the day. The smart boy crafted a makeshift wheelchair out of Legos.



 

This wheelchair prototype was relatively cheaper, and adjustments could be made according to Grace's growth as well. All you had to do was add a few lego blocks to it. Even though it did take a couple of weeks, the little baby did get used to moving around in the wheelchair. With some practice, she started walking and running around with ease. As she got bigger, she got a more permanent set of wheels.



 

When she finally became old enough, she was fitted with an adult wheelchair. With the help of her owners, including Dylan, Gracie has been leading a healthy and joyful life since she was a puppy! Even with her disabilities, she's going to smother you with unconditional love and that's much more than you can ask for.
