Massachusetts Pet Owner Says Disabled Dog's Wheelchair Was Stolen

It doesn’t get more heartless than this.

Someone appears to have stolen a wheelchair from a disabled dog in West Roxbury, Massachusetts.

The dog’s owner, Dave Feeney said that on Sunday someone took the device that helps his 12-year-old Belgian Shepherd “Lucky” get around. Lucky was reportedly left without the use of his hind legs after being hit by a car a few years ago.

Feeney says that the chair disappeared from his front yard. He also said that it wasn’t trash day and that it was “obvious” that the device was meant for a disabled dog.

“For somebody to do this, they knew what they were doing,” Feeney says.

Police say they’re looking into the incident.

Thankfully however, Lucky’s story does have a happy ending thanks to a New Hampshire-based company.

HandicappedPets.com has donated a new adjustable chair to Lucky that costs between $400 and $500.

Spokeswoman Lisa-Marie Mulkern says the company wanted to do anything it could “to right a wrong.”

Someone needs to break the thieves legs, then give him a wheel chair to help him out and steal it back the next day. Then perhaps this heartless pataQ will stop stealing things.

it’s good to know that there are good folk in the world to counteract the pathetic scum who stole Lucky’s wheelchair.

What a douche bag!  I hope he gets his legs broken too, then left without any way to get around.  Hoorah to the generous folks who helped him out.  Guess the little guy was lucky.
