Man Makes PVC Pipe Wheelchair For Dog, Saves Family $8,000 On Surgery

February 18, 2016

22 year-old James Stewart found a cost effective way to help his girlfriend's three-year-old Pomeranian by building a wheelchair out of PVC pipes.

The project cost a total of $40 and saved her family from having to pay $8,000 for surgery or $1,000 for a custom wheelchair.

"A couple of days ago Benny started acting very weird and skittish. The following morning he woke up dragging his hind legs. This scared everyone and my girlfriend's mom ended up taking him to the animal hospital. They informed her that the surgery would cost beyond $8,000," Paniagua told Victor Valley News.

After learning that a custom wheelchair for Benny would cost at least $1,000, Paniagua told CBS Los Angeles that he began to search for ways to make one himself.

"I started off by Google searching 'dog do-it-yourself wheelchair.' I said, 'you know, that looks simple enough and you only need a couple pieces to it so why not? Let's try it out,'" he said.

While certain parts were hard to come by, Paniagua wound up spending $40 in total to create his own fully functioning dog wheelchair.
