MILWAUKEE (WITI) — First…there was Chris P. Bacon — the disabled baby pig whose owners built him a homemade wheelchair. The pig became an internet sensation — and these days, he tours hospitals to cheer up disabled children.
Now, there’s Dolly the rabbit.
The disabled rabbit from Canada is developing quite a following after her story appeared on Facebook.
Dolly cannot hop.
The seven-year-old bunny has a number of health issues, including a pair of paralyzed hind legs.
Dolly’s paralyzed hind legs are the result of a birth defect that started causing her issues as she has aged.
Her owners, Renee Thompson and Brad Coffin, aren’t letting that stop her from getting around.
They designed a pair of custom-made wheels for Dolly.
Brad Coffin made the wheelchair out of a child’s toy car.
Dolly’s owners have posted her story to Facebook to send the message that a disability isn’t a death sentence.
