Tiny wheelchairs have helped, baby and even to lead active, happy lives. So when the news hit that Bubbles the two-legged wiener dog was walking again thanks to a 3D-printed wheelchair, we weren't surprised.
After all, another puppy nicknamedstole our hearts when we saw the little fella rolling around in his 3D-printed wheelchair last August.
In this case, Bubbles the dachshund was born without her two front legs. Her owners Trevor Byers and Elissa Smoak decided to build her a wheelchair.
They used a combination of "carbon fiber, 3D-printed parts and a model airplane, with the hope that others would be able to utilize the same design for their own dogs in need of a wheelchair," according to 3ders.org.
Byers uploaded Bubbles' wheelchair design to MakerBot's Thingiverse for other pet owners looking for help.
"Bubbles is the reason I bought my printer in the first place and she loves the freedom it has given her," Byers said on his Thingiverse page.
