For an unloved pet, a 12-year-old builds a LEGO wheelchair so she can enjoy life
Thanks to the kindness of a 12-year-old boy, a small two-legged puppy was given a second chance at life. With their heartwarming story, the creative boy utilized LEGO parts to make a wheelchair for the despairing dog so she could run, and they restored our faith in humanity!
With Gracie, a one-year-old gorgeous puppy, life was quite unfair. Gracie’s path into this world looked tough enough before she was born without her front legs owing to a congenital abnormality, but things became considerably worse. Unfortunately, her human parents abandoned her when she was just a few weeks old, and the helpless puppy landed up in a shelter.
Gracie, despite everything, triumphed over all the challenges. The cute dog, who was always sociable and gentle, won the hearts of the shelter owners. Kennesaw, Georgia’s Turley family fell in love with Gracie the moment they met her and wanted to adopt her. They had already adopted a three-legged and a paralyzed dog, so they were familiar with dealing with a special needs puppy. Nonetheless, they were anxious about Gracie’s ability to walk without injuring herself.
A boy who helped at the shelter provided assistance. Grace required an adaptable wheelchair because she was still growing. As a result, 12-year-old Dylan devised a wonderful solution. He created a one-of-a-kind LEGO wheelchair that exceeded all expectations. Gracie now has the opportunity to live her life as a regular puppy!
“The first couple of times, it took her a minutes to figure it out,” Tammy Turley told THE DODO. “However, we ended up getting little pieces of hot dog and when she smelled those, she took off.”
