8 year old boy raises money to help his dog

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- An 8 year old Kentucky boy takes matters into his own hands to raise money to help his beloved pet.

8 year old Ryder raised his own money to buy his dog a wheelchair.

The dog needed it after being diagnosed with degenerative mylopathy.

The boy sold these key chains and magnets.

In just a few days, he raised $315, more than enough to buy the wheelchair.

The dog is adjusting well to his new set of wheels.

Ryder donated the extra money he raised to the Humane Society.
