With everything bad that’s going on in the world right now, we all need a little bit of hope in our lives. Gracie started her life rough because she was dumped for being born without her two front legs. When she was finally brought into the vet’s office, Gracie had no hair around her eyes and maggots crawling all over her body.
Fortunately, Gracie was adopted by the Turley family and given a second life with a Lego wheelchair!
Since she was a puppy with a long life ahead of her, Gracie couldn’t get fitted for a regular animal wheelchair since she wasn’t eligible yet, but she also needed a wheelchair that she could grow out of.
This was when 12-year-old Dylan Turley came to the rescue by making her a makeshift wheelchair out of his Legos. The Legos would allow the Turley family to resize the wheelchair as necessary while Gracie grew without breaking the bank.
Gracie has long grown out of her Lego wheelchair now, but her current wheelchair lets her run and leap just as well as any other normal dog! She’s even recently gotten a younger brother, a chihuahua that is also going to get a Lego wheelchair of his own!
