On a Sunday morning last summer I awoke to an unfamiliar little squeak. Half awake I look over and notice a new little new born puppy on my wife's head. We grab tiny bubbles and her mother then place them in the whelping box completely missing the fact that Bubbles was very special. It wasn't until the next puppy was born that we noticed Bubbles legs or the lack of. At first we were unsure what to do but a quick internet search calmed our nerves. After a few months had past and a many failed attempts at building a wheelchair more conventional ways we purchased our very first 3D printer. Many many more failed attempts later I have came up with a design that is perfect for my Bubbles. It is light weight and stable without placing to much weight on her extra long dachshund back. She gets around in her cart better than any other small dog I have seen missing there front legs. Up and down hills and running threw thick grass taller than her nothing slows her down. Following our success with Bubbles and learning just how many dogs are out there in need of cart. My wife and I want to share what we have learned in hope that a dog wont be throw to the curb due to this simple disability.
In this instructable I'll show the measurements required to design the cart along with the basic assembly of the cart and how to fit it to the dog. Plus some bonus videos of it in action. If your pup is about the size of Bubbles it should be a simple print and play. If not I can be contacted at Bubbles the two legged wiener dog to help design a custom cart for your pup and even print it if you do not have the resources.
