Thanks to the kindness of a 12-year-old boy, a tiny two-legged puppy was given a second chance at life. With their inspiring story, the ingenious kid used LEGO pieces to build a wheelchair for the hopeless dog so she could run, and they restored our faith in humanity!
With Gracie, a one-year-old adorable puppy, life was very unfair. Gracie’s journey into this world seemed impossible enough before she was born without her front legs due to a birth defect, but things got even worse. Unfortunately, her human parents abandoned her when she was only a few weeks old, and the helpless puppy ended up in a shelter.
Gracie, despite everything, triumphed over all the challenges. The adorable puppy, who was always friendly and sweet, won the hearts of the shelter owners. Kennesaw, Georgia’s Turley family fell in love with Gracie the moment they met her and decided to adopt her. They had already adopted a three-legged and a paralyzed dog, so they were familiar with dealing with a special needs puppy. Nonetheless, they were concerned about Gracie’s ability to walk without injuring herself.
A boy who volunteered at the shelter provided assistance. Grace required an adaptable wheelchair because she was still growing. As a result, 12-year-old Dylan devised a brilliant solution. He created a one-of-a-kind LEGO wheelchair that exceeded all expectations. Gracie now has the opportunity to live her life as a normal puppy!
“It took her a minute the first couple of times to figure it out,” Tammy Turley told THE DODO. “However, we ended up with little pieces of hot dog, and she bolted when she smelled them.”
