(YouTube) -- For Ryder McConathy, his dog is more than just a family pet; he's like a brother. So when the 8-year-old's pooch developed a disability, the caring kid was eager to do anything to help.

Ryder's dog, Cacious, was diagnosed with degenerative mylopathy last fall, which has caused him to lose function in his hind legs, WLEX reported. To get around, the disabled dog needed a costly wheelchair, so Ryder stepped up and started selling colorful magnets and key chains to raise enough money for the purchase.

He donated the extra funds to the Humane Society.
