Rescue dog tests out new wheelchair ramp in heartwarming video

A wheelchair-using dog showed off his bravery last month after a new ramp was installed in his home. 

The video, uploaded on Facebook on July 3, shows a paralyzed rescue dog, named Benny, barking with excitement over his present before courageously testing out the ramp.

The Tucker Farm, a family-run animal rescue and farm in Acworth, Georgia, fostered the golden doodle before he was diagnosed with a spinal deformity. Benny tried out his first dog wheelchair in April.
