Esther and her angel Snoop sent me several harnesses for large dogs to help me get my very large Golden Buddy around now that he is a Tripawd. One of them works really well for him. So I would like to pass on the others. I’m not sure how each of them might work, and some look like they might be attachments to something else. One or two look like they would be good for helping hold up the rear end for a back leg amputation.

I will post photos on my blog page for those interested. When I say large – Buddy was 100 lbs before surgery. He lost 5 lbs with his leg and we are cutting back on his groceries to trim him up a bit. He stands 28 inches at the shoulder and 36 for his head.

The straps are all adjustable. Esther had them set at the smallest setting and I have Buddy’s set about half way so these might fit dogs larger than Buddy and maybe somewhat smaller as well.

Please let me know if you could use one or more of these.

I forgot to add the link to the blog and the photos of the harnesses. Also Codie has added some explanations of the harnesses I’ve posted
