Maggie Thornton from Tewkesbury with her dog Boswell. See SWNS story SWSHEELS; An elderly dog with wobbly legs is rolling back the years thanks to his own set of WHEELS. Boswell, a 13-year-old Afghan hound, was facing a miserable end to his life due to hip problems and chronic arthritis. He struggled to walk and balance and owner Maggie Thornton said he had even become reluctant to go outdoors for exercise. Fearing his lack of mobility could shorten his life expectancy, she found a company online which makes ‘stabilisers’ for disabled dogs.
