22-yr-old Man goes viral after building wheelchair for girlfriend's dog

James Stewart Paniagua, 22, found a cost effective way to help his girlfriend Briana Ibarra's dog by building a wheel chair out of PVC pipes.

Ibarra's family faced thousands of dollars in medical expenses when the 3-year-old dog lost its hind legs

After learning that a custom wheelchair for Benny would cost at least $1,000 (200 thousand Naira) 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 spent $40 (8 thousand Naira) in total to create his own fully functioning dog wheelchair.

Benny has been more mobile since receiving his homemade wheelchair and Paniagua hopes to make a few changes to further improve the wheelchair.
