Six-week-old puppy gets wheelchair made by 3d printer

A little six weeks old puppy got a wheelchair made by 3d printer and can walk without help now

Meet Tumbles. The puppy is only six weeks old but he is known across the world because of disability. He was born with no front paws and the disability makes him face a big challenge. But now, thanks to advances in 3D-printing technology, he feels much better, Joinfo.com reports with the reference to The Mirror.

Thankfully he’s now got a brand new wheelchair to help him learn to walk, and it’s all down to a 3D printer .

In an adorable clip posted to Facebook , Tumbles tries out his new wheels for the first time but soon tips over on to his little nose.

When he finally does get going, he can’t quite work out what to do with his back legs, but this doesn’t stop his little tail wagging happily.

Giving up, he wiggles out of the harness and has a quick chew on the seat before turning his attention to his teddy nearby.

We’re sure he’ll get the hang of it eventually, but for now the adorable pup seems quite content with his two hind legs – even if it did take 14 hours to make his new wheelchair.

Crystal Richmond, who posted the video to the social media site, stressed that Tumbles is not available for adoption at this time. We can almost hear the hearts breaking.

As reported earlier, a determined toddler with no limbs tried her new high-tech walking frame.
