Lola is only 13 weeks old, and she is already in her third homemade dog wheelchair that is pictured at left. Paralyzed at only a few weeks of age, Lola likely will grow to be approximately 50 - 60 pounds.
She needed a wheelchair that could be adjusted to accommodate her growth from a puppy to a full grown dog. Had Lola been fitted with a series of custom dog wheelchairs, she would have required a total of eight carts to be made for her!
Now, thanks to the generous support of donors to Paws with Pride and with assistance from HandicappedPets.com, Lola will be receiving a Walkin' Wheels for Handicapped Pets - the pet industry's only fully adjustable dog wheelchair. The Walkin' Wheels features a patented design that easily adjusts in length, width and height without tools, and it folds flat for convenient travel with your canine companion.
The Walkin' Wheels recently appeared on Animal Planet's Underdog to Wonderdog where a 12-week old puppy named Faith needed an adjustable dog wheelchair to accommodate both her paralysis and growth.
Lola's story was recently featured in a newscast on NBC Channel 4 in Columbus, Ohio. We look forward to seeing Lola in her Walkin' Wheels and to following her progress.
