Tumbles, an adorable six week old terrior-beagle mix, was born without its front legs and was rescued from the cold by Friends of Shelter Dogs, a non profit organisation in Athens, Ohio.




After sharing several pictures of Tumbles on social media, a volunteer reached out to the shelter with a design of a 3-D printed wheelchair, and then contacted the Ohio University Innovation Center to help build the model.




While Tumbles may need some physiotherapy before it can walk properly and get used to the wheelchair, things are looking positive according to the Shelter's officials.
