Have you heard of the dog, Tucker? Tucker is an Australian Shepherd known as the “3D Dog”, according to sculpteo.com. Tucker is a little bit different from other dogs, in an unusual way, because of his back right leg.

                                                  Tucker and Warlow

    When Tucker the 3D was born, the were several missing bones in his back right foot. His owner, Kendra Earl Warlow adopted Tucker when he was eight months old, she says that he was the last one in his litter, and no one wanted him because of his back right foot, no one expect Warlow that is. She wanted Tucker, and she loves Tucker the way he is.

                                            Foot problems

    Unfortunately, Tucker’s foot problems caused pain in his back and his hindquarter. Tucker was on a number of medications. Warlow decided to reach out to the 3D printing club of the University of Missouri, and she challenged them to create a 3D printing functional paw for Tucker.

                                               3D printing club

    The 3D printing club at the University of Missouri accepted Warlow’s challenge. They kicked off the project last spring. They made a bunch of prosthetics for Tucker to try out.                          

    

 

                                                         Now

    Now, thanks to the 3D printing club, Tucker (age 5) can now run around on technically 4 legs, and is a lot more comfortable, than he was before the 3D printing club made prosthetics.

                                                  In conclusion

    I hoped you have learned some new things about Tucker the 3D dog, such as, who Tucker is, how supportive his owner is, and how the 3D printing club overcame the challenge that Warlow gave them and helped Tucker out.
