3D printing gets two-legged chihuahua back on his feet.

Two-legged TurboRoo the chihuahua was only 4 weeks old when brought to a veterinarian in Indianapolis. The vet put out a call for wheels for the puppy, knowing that this would be the only way cute little TurboRoo would be able to get back on his feet. Mark Deadrick, the president for 3Dyn, saw that call for help and 3D-printed some cool new wheels for the dog with a Makerbot printer.

Now, thanks to 3D printing and a little ingenuity, TurboRoo is a happy puppy wheeling his way through his new life.
