Ellie, Gulliver and Echo, 6-month-old chihuahua puppies all born without front legs were fitted for custom-designed wheeled carts built by Eddie’s Wheels, a custom manufacturer of wheeled carts for pets. They were fitted with the custom wheels on Wednesday, June 15, 2011 at the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (MSPCA), an organization that adopts, protects and provides medical attention to thousands of animals in the United States.

According to international reports, the three chihuahuas were left homeless when their owner passed away earlier this year. They were surrendered to MSPCA until they have all been adopted individually.

“The MSPCA is proud to have found loving homes that can accommodate the special needs of these resilient and spirited puppies,” said Mike Keiley, director of the Noble Family Animal Care & Adoption Center at the MSPCA at Nevins Farm as quoted from MSPCA’s website.

The wheel carts were precisely measured for each puppy and the fitting of the custom-designed wheels was said to be the reunion of the three dogs since they were adopted separately.

Meanwhile, a YouTube video of Ellie, Gulliver and Echo posted on the MSPCA’s website prompted adoption inquiries as far away as Singapore which is no longer possible since they were already adopted.
