An adorable two-legged puppy is now rolling around thanks to his new 3D printed wheelchair.

Tumbles was born without his front legs and was rescued when he was only 2 weeks old. The puppy learned to walk on his own using his nose and back legs but a vet recommended a wheelchair.

The Ohio University Innovation Center 3D printed Tumbles a customized two-wheeled cart. He will undergo physical therapy so he can continue to get used to the wheelchair.
