Turbo, Two-Legged Dog, Inspires All in Toy Wheelchair

by at . Comments

As previously documented, dogs can have plenty of fun in wheelchairs.

And they can also inspire.

In the following photo gallery, we’re introduced to Turbo, a chihuahua puppy born with two legs as the result of a genetic defect.

But does this mean he’s destined to live a short, unfufilled life? Heck no, not with the the staff at the Downtown Veterinarian in Indianapolis having a say.

Using a toy helicopter and a toy welding kit, the doctors there have made Turbo an unusually awesome temporary solution before he’s old enough to be fitted with a cart.

"We just wanted him to be able to get used to the feeling of a cart,” says the facility’s manager, Amy Birk. “It allows him to get up and use his legs a few minutes a day in addition to his physical therapy. Using toys just seemed logical because he is so small and it had to be very light.”

Check out Turbo and his amazing wheelchair now... and prepare to breakout a few tissues!

This is amazingly awesome. Little Turbo is moving around in a wheelchair constructed out of toys.
