ORLANDO, Fla. — Hope, the abandoned the puppy born with only two legs, has a new home, a new name, and new mobility. The dog now called Art lives an active life with three other dogs and a retired veterinarian. And he gets around.
“I just fell in love with him,” Art’s new owner, Robert Weigle said. “He’s taught me more than years of veterinary training has, and a lot about life priorities.”
Added Weigle, “He’s just a happy dog and he’s very intelligent and if one thing doesn’t work, he’ll work around it and find a way that does” Weigle said.
Weigle built Art two makeshift wheelchairs, one with four wheels and one with two, which Art uses when he leaves the house. “He’s really isn’t overly-fond of either of them, unless we’re in a strange area where he gets around and socializes with people,” Weigle said.
When he’s at home, Art prefers to be free of his wheelchairs. “He gets around very well on his own,” Weigle said.
