Turbo The Chihuahuah Gets New Wheels

 In Blog

 

TurboChihuahuaTurbo, a Chihuahua from Indianapolis, Indiana, is making headlines and winning hearts all around the world.

Born without his two front legs, Turbo is now rolling along quite happily thanks to a team of resourceful veterinarians and a bunch of spare parts from a toy welding kit!

This is a temporary, albeit very creative, solution. Awesome as it is, however, moving with these wheels puts stress on Turbo’s back legs. When he’s about 6 months old, he can get fitted for a cart that can help him balance his weight properly and move more easily.

Keep going, Turbo! We’re rooting for you!
