Chihuahuas on Wheels

Venus, Carmen and Pablo were born without front legs due to a genetic defect. The North Shore Animal League in Port Washington, New York took custody of the three chihuahuas from a shelter in Virginia, and outfitted them with front wheels!
"The three have been practicing getting about and eating using their new, custom-built, aluminum carts," the shelter said. The carts are fastened to the dogs with "Velcro-held polar fleece padding for comfortable body support and lightweight foam wheels."

The contraptions were made by Eddie’s Wheels of Massachusetts, and are designed to be used for ten minutes at a time. The wheels alleviate stress on the puppies' lower backs. The three have been adopted by a veterinary technician at the League, and are also learning to balance themselves on their back legs. Link (with video) -via Arbroath

I don't see much point in keeping these dogs alive. They're products of a puppy mill, and no legs may not be the only thing wrong with them.

Truly sad to see what happens when greed outweighs human decency.
