An adorable pooch who sadly lost her hind legs in a car accident is winning hearts online. While the internet can be a cruel place sometimes where people's comments can be mean and hurtful here's a story of how one comment actually led to a series of events that ended up changing one dog's life. The story of a dog named Bunny, who lost both hind legs in an accident in Mexico, was posted online recently. The adorable furball was sadly abandoned by her owners after meeting with the accident.

Many people were heartbroken over her story and wanted the best life for her and one person's comment would actually do just that. The person posted a short comment suggesting she deserved the “Mercedes-Benz of wheelchairs.” While the person who left the sweet comment went about their day those few words on the screen sparked an idea in one rescuer’s mind.

Henry Friedman said in an Instagram video that he reached out to Mercedes-Benz who loved the idea. To his surprise, they not only loved the suggestion but also “hooked her up with a fresh set of wheels” and gave Bunny her own custom-made wheelchair. The sweet video of her entering the store enthusiastically as staff cheered her on is melting everyone's hearts. In the video, they attached the custom wheelchair to the beloved pup, allowing the sweet pooch to move around swiftly and freely as she enjoyed her newfound mobility.

“BUNNY’S BENZ!! And it’s SOOO much more than just a bad**s wheelchair—These wheels will open Bunny’s world significantly and make her much more adoptable!” Friedman wrote as he posted the video of her enjoying her new wheels.

We all love Bunny, she deserves the very best wheelchair. And so glad Mercedes Benz was willing to help." Another shared, "This story made me literally cry. How can anyone with a heart leave their pet, animal dog or fur baby like this? This is so heartbreaking I’m so glad Bunny was rescued and brought to the USA and so happy she has healed, found a loving home and now is able to get around even faster. You look amazing Bunny."
