Roosevelt the Dog Happily Scoots Around in a Custom Wheeled Cart

Roosevelt

Bangor Daily News recently ran a wonderful story about Roosevelt the rescued Collie dog who was born with malformed front legs but happily uses a unique wheeled cart to scoot around. He was named after former President Franklin D. Roosevelt who used a wheelchair after contracting polio. The cart was made by Eddie’s Wheels who designs wheelchairs for pets. His human companion Stephanie Fox is quoted as saying, “People think he should have been put down because they think he’s suffering, but he wakes up happy every day. If you had a child with a disability you’d try to enrich them, give them opportunities. So why not do the same with a dog?”
