Meet 9 of the happiest wheelchair dogs we follow on social media. We’ve also got a followup on world famous Derby the bionic dog, who has been working with 3D Systems over the past year perfecting a 3D printable prosthetic leg for dogs.
Watching these happy dogs zoom around on their fancy wheels will surely put a smile on your face.
We especially love the uplifting insight of their humans too— guardians, cheerleaders, and fearless supports of these special lives.
