Students Build Wheelchair for Paralyzed Dog

Two-year-old Leroy didn’t have long to live. A rescue dog, Leroy had suffered some kind of trauma and was paralyzed in his hind legs. But a group of Boise State University engineering students wanted to make his final months a little more comfortable and built him a wheelchair out of baby stroller parts. "I've been bringing Leroy home for day trips and weekend outings for four months now and last weekend, when he was in his chair and playing fetch, was easily the happiest and most relaxed I've ever seen him,” says Brittany Sundell, a resident director at the college. “He was comfortable enough that he even rolled on his back for belly rubs which had never happened before.” Leroy sadly passed away late last week, but his final four months were full of love, the Bully Boise Breed Rescue group said in a Facebook post. — Read it at People Pets
