New design by ‘Repairman of Lives’ makes dog walk again
A dog whose feet were amputated after a wrong treatment is now able to walk again thanks to a man from southeastern Turkey, who was dubbed by the Turkish media as the “repairman of lives” for making walkers and prosthetic limbs for animals using makeshift means.
Hasan Kızıl, 23, who lives in the Derik district of the southeastern province of Mardin, designed a walker for “Yağmur” (Rain), a disabled stray dog from the neighboring Gaziantep province.
“I came here for Yağmur and brought this walker as a surprise. This is only a temporary one, though. I am planning to produce prosthesis with a 3D printer so that he would soon run and jump happily,” Kızıl told Demirören News Agency on July 23.
The Association to Improve Lives was also involved in the rehabilitation process of Yağmur, the report added.
