New to this site, my dog, Soucci, had his right foreleg amputated November 3rd after diagnosis of osteosarcoma.

He's doing great, but now his harness doesn't fit well, hookups keep slicing to his side since there's no right leg to hold it in place.

Can anyone suggest or recommend a harness for him that will stay in place?

He's a little guy (but mighty), a pug/chihuahua with a sweet personality and a huge will to live.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Here and Now

Welcome! We look forward to hearing more about Soucci.

The Ruffwear Flagline harness is our best recommendation for front-leggers because you don't have to lift any leg to put it on. With the right front missing, the Web Master harness is also a good all purpose support harness. For extra small breeds, we recommend the Front Range harness . Compare all features in the chart of best harness for Tripawds. Find reviews, sizing, and purchase options in the Tripawds Gear blog .
