Limbless pooches get wheels for ride!July 20th, 2008 - 7:19 pm ICT by ANI
London, July 20 (ANI): Life certainly rolled on wheels for three disabled pooches, when they were fitted with new sets of wheels.
Chihuahua triplets Venus, Pablo and Carmen were born without their front limbs, a problem sometimes caused by inbreeding, but thanks to big-hearted Donna Imhof, that they can now trundle themselves around.
The 48-year-old worker at the animal shelter, where the pooches had been dumped, nursed them back to health.
And it was her engineer hubby John, 57, who built them aluminium carts with Velcro straps and fleecy padding that enabled them to move all around.
“When they arrived at the shelter they were hanging on to life. They couldn”t walk, move or even eat properly. It was heartbreaking, News of the World quoted Donna, who has adopted the pooches, as saying.
She added: “Now they love going for walks although it can be quite chaotic if they all want to go off in different directions at once!” (ANI)
