Tiny Tumbles will soon be able to run and play, thanks to rescuers at Friends of Shelter Dogs in Athens, Ohio, and The Ohio University Innovation Center.
After a shelter volunteer rescued Tumbles at just two weeks old, the good people at the Innovation Center, on recommendation from a local veterinarian, made him a 3D-printed wheelchair to improve his mobility.
Tumbles the terrier mix is now six weeks old. His wheelchair took 14 hours to print, and wraps around his body like a harness. Wheels almost as big as he is give him the ability to move around without his two front legs.
According to Friends of Shelter Dogs, Tumbles isn’t available for adoption quite yet, but is growing quickly and is healthy. He was rescued from a litter outside in the cold, and was being “pushed away by his litter mates.”
