A San Antonio pet shop is helping a goldfish with a problem.

The goldfish has a defective swim bladder making floating a difficult task. 

According to Taylor Dean, who helped create the wheelchair, the goldfish was brought in by his previous owner who didn't know what to do with him. 

Dean and Dereck Burnett, who created the wheelchair, worked together to fashion a 'goldfish wheelchair.'

"He seems to be much happier now than he used to be so, it's been a life changing experience for him, for sure. He's a tough little guy, I mean he refused to give up," said Burnett.

They used a counterbalance on the bottom of the device to allow the fish to swim around. 

"With all the stuff going on everywhere it's just a good story, no matter who you are it just makes you smile," said Dean.
