Alf is on Television with Walkin Wheels Dog Wheelchair

 Walkin' Wheels dog wheelchair
Okay, this is a different Alf, but his adorable face is rather reminiscent of that Alien Life Form from the 1980s sitcom.  When we met our Alf at the Interzoo 2014 Trade Fair in Nuremberg last month, he was desperately in need of a new dog wheelchair.  The second hand, custom made for another dog wheelchair he was using could not accommodate Alf's weight or mobility needs because it did not fit and could not adjust.  Alf also could not move freely without a person providing lifting support for the front of the cart. 

It was our privilege to be able to donate one of our Walkin' Wheels dog wheelchairs so that Alf could enjoy the freedom of walking on his own again.  Recently, we learned that Alf is not only walking again, he really is back on television!  A news station in Nuremberg captured Alf in a local park where he was running, swimming and even playing fetch.  Watch the report below or click here.
