Dachshund Born Without Front Legs Gets Wheelchair

Bubbles the dachshund was born without her two front legs, so her owners took it upon themselves to give her the opportunity to walk and play like never before.

Using a combination of carbon fiber, a model airplane, and 3D-printed parts, they were able to give her a wheelchair where Bubbles' two front legs never grew.

Her owners also uploaded the design of the wheelchair to MakerBot's Thingiverse, allowing other pet owners to provide help for their disabled pets.
