An 8-year-old boy is proving his devotion to his dog by raising money to help him get around.

A 9-year-old boxer named "Cacious" recently lost the use of its hind legs due to a degenerative disease.

The dog's young owner, Ryder McConathy, was determined to raise enough money to buy the dog a special wheelchair that costs more than $300. He did it by selling key chains and magnets to his neighbors in Lexington, Ky.

"He fell down the whole set of stairs and the next day his feet were sort of dragging and we realized that happened to him," said McConathy.

Ryder sold so many items, he was able to buy the wheelchair and donate leftover money to the local Humane Society.
