    (circa 1991-December 22, 2009)
    Chihuahua found abandoned in cardboard box with spinal injury and cut vocal cords
    Adopted by Deborah Turner and fitted with wheelchair device from K-9 Carts for mobility
    Subject of two bestselling children's books: 'How Willy got his Wheels' (1998) and 'How Willy Got His Wings: The Further Adventures of Wheely Willy' (2003)
    Turner tied helium balloons to his backside in an effort to help him walk, but at 2 pounds he was lifted off the ground.
    TV network Animal Planet dubbed him 'Wheely Willy, the Motivational Speaker,' but he can't bark due to abuse.
    He hawks items for purchase on his website - from a daily activity journal to a $20 'Be Wheely Happy' T-shirt.
    Turner, a pet groomer, literally saved him from death's door as he was to be put down the day she adopted him.
    He took to the wheelchair device immediately and has been mobile ever since.
    He regularly visits children's and veteran's hospitals to help lift spirits and motivate patients with physical and mental disabilities.
    One previously mute autistic child spoke for the first time after a visit from him.
    His first book won the 1998 Maxwell Award for Children's Literature.
    Turner states, 'Willy is a gift, and not just my gift from God, but a gift that I can give to everyone.'
