Differently Abled: 11 Pets Rockin’ it on Wheels


For a playful animal, there's nothing worse than not being able to run, jump, and frolic. These pictures prove that with the right equipment, impaired pets can move around with the best of them!


Here are 9 pets that had their lives transformed by a set of wheels:

1. Buster the Pug

Pugs are prone to disabling spinal problems, so they're the breed most likely to use wheels. Buster is all smiles now that he has his Walkin' Wheels Cart.

2. Turbo-Roo the Chihuahua

After being shot with an air gun, this kitty needs her pink wheels to stand upright. We're so glad she still has a way to run around and catch those backyard mice!

Chris was born with malformed hind legs. He had to lift his rear up and walk on his front legs all on his own, until his owner built him wheels from a Kinex set. Chris is now the star of his own children's book!

5. Dolly the Rabbit

Born premature, this St. Louis celebrity was mysteriously paralyzed after a dog spooked her herd. When Holli's owner could no longer afford to pay for therapy treatments, the whole city chipped in to help, including one good Samaritan who purchased Holli's $700 wheelchair.

8. Chicken
