Turbo-charged pooch

Meet TurboRoo, the cute Chihuahua sporting a smart set of wheels. Born without front legs, the pup from Indianapolis was given up when he was four weeks old. His life changed for the better after his new owners were approached by Mark Deadrick, an industrial designer with an interest in 3D printing. He got to work designing a cart that would get TurboRoo on the move again. Since then, TurboRoo has become a US social media and TV star, recipient of an ‘Underdog of the Year Award’ and has spawned the company TurboRoo Designs, which specialises in designing customised mobility carts for other small two-legged dogs.
