Dog with Muscular Dystrophy Gets Back On All Fours with Custom Wheelchair

Description

This adorable pup is named Lady, and she has a form of canine muscular dystrophy as well as a mental illness. Her muscles are decaying rapidly and she has a lot of trouble walking and getting around. Her owner, a man named Vassilis Paleothodoros, took her to various vets in Athens, where he lives, and they all suggested to euthanize the pup because her disease can be difficult, both for the animal and for the guardian. However, since the four-legged fluff ball doesn't seem to suffer from any physical pain, Vassilis wouldn't give up on his beloved canine companion and decided to seek the advice of an expert on dogs, a specialty vet named Vassilis Tzigkouras. The vet, who is a former plumber, decided to build a specialty wheelchair for the handicapped animal. Now Lady is able to walk around again thanks to the unique wheelchair. Lady's rare condition, Vassilis's love for his furry friend, and one passionate vet, came together to design a wheelchair that ended up giving this poor pup another chance at mobility and a fulfilling life. Don't you love it when humans help animals?
