7. Wheelchair Warriors
The simplest things in life often bring the most happiness. This is certainly the case for these enthusiastic pups who recently became mobile thanks to the help of canine wheelchairs.

6. Duncan Lou Who
Duncan Lou Who is a happy boxer puppy who was born with severely deformed rear legs and pelvis. After realizing that his legs would never heal properly, they were both amputated. Duncan Lou Who was a double amputee at just 12 weeks of age, but he doesn’t let his challenges slow him down at all. He’s an energetic, loving, and hilarious little pup who loves life to the fullest. He even enjoys an occassional visit to the beach! He truly is an inspiring example of making the best with what you have. What a sweetheart!
BeeBee was born without shoulders, and her ligaments prevent her front legs from extending properly, making it difficult to walk. Some kind engineering students offered to help get BeeBee moving again, and after some hard work they made BeeBee her very own wheelchair. Now, nothing stops her! She cruises around like a pro!

Now, Smiley is part of the St. John Ambulance Therapy Dog program where he visits nursing homes and listens to special needs kids as they learn to read. He truly lives up to his name, there isn’t a second during the day where this sweet guy isn’t smiling!
