NBC NEWS — Jack the dog is mobile again.
The Rhode Island Lab-mix was left without a way to get around when a thief took his custom built wheelchair earlier this week.
When David Holtzen and Keith Downs saw a report on the crime on NBC affiliate WJAR, they sprang into action.
The couple had a spare wheelchair left after their own dog passed away recently.
They were able to track down Marilyn Proulx, Jack's owner, and delivered the chair.
After a few quick adjustments Jack is rolling again.
