What Deadrick came up with was nothing short of life-changing for Turbo. His owner, vet technician Ashley Looper, said that after being fitted with custom-build cart, the little dog began to thrive with his newfound mobility. The design has undergone a number of changes since then to keep up with Turbo's growth.
At the Better With Pets Summit in New York City last week, the little dog with a disability finally got to meet the man who went out of his way to improve his life.
"It was great to meet Turbo and his humans in New York last week," says Deadrick. "I found it more interesting to see how much this project made others feel inspired, and I hope that inspiration can lead to others wanting to do similar projects, whether it's for pets or humans."
Deadrick says that his work with helping the happy chihuahua isn't over quite yet.
"Turbo seems to be doing quite well with his karts, but he is still growing, and we have a next evolution of kart for him in the works."
