Gracie is a puppy who was born without front legs
The puppy was adopted by the Turney family, which also runs an animal shelter. They had already adopted one paralyzed dog before and had experience caring for a disabled pet.
Naturally, Gracie had trouble walking but was too small for a wheelchair so the family had to come up with some sort of a solution.
That’s where 12-year-old Dylan came to help. The boy used LEGO bricks to make a wheelchair for Gracie.
A LEGO wheelchair was perfect for the rapidly growing puppy – it was cheap and easy to adjust.
With a little trial and error, Gracie got the hang of the wheelchair.Soon enough she was running around like any little puppy her age!
Eventually, as Gracie got bigger, Dylan added bigger wheels to the wheelchair.
Gracie’s story proves that any puppy can live a happy and fulfilling life with the help of caring and loving owners.
