(CBSLA.com) — A baby terrier-beagle mix named Tumbles was born without two front legs, but may soon be moving around with no problem.

That’s because a 3-D printer at the Ohio University Innovation Center managed to create a wheelchair for the little pup.

Technicians first drew out an outline of the wheelchair.

They then used microscopic plastic beads to form the wheels and axle.

Tumbles will soon be able to move around on his own with ease at Friends of the Shelter Dogs, the animal shelter that cares for him.

In the Los Angeles area, there are a number of animal shelters that care for dogs that have special-needs, including the Friends of the Animals Foundation on Sepulveda Boulevard.
