We bought this for Homer but he would never step on it!
It’s too big to ship so it would have to be picked up here in Philadelphia but if someone is around and wants it – we would love to give it a real home!
It’s the regular size shown here:

Such a shame we live in Europe, I’m sure it would be perfect for my next baby Dane …
Thank you so much for offering it here
Eurydice 77kg/170lb Great Dane limping end of April 2016, amputation (right front leg/osteosarcoma) 4 May 2016 6 courses of carboplatin followed by metronomic therapy, lung mets found 30 Nov 2016. 3 courses of doxorubicin, PET scan 26 Jan 2017 showed more mets so stopped chemo. Holistic route April 2017. Lung X-ray 5 May 2017 showed several tennis ball size mets, started cortisone and diuretics. Miss Cow earned her XXL silver wings 12 June 2017, 13 months and 1 week after amputation and 6 1/2 months after lung mets, she was the goofiest dawg ever and is now happily flying from cloud to cloud woof woofing away :-)

Hi Evan and Homer! We’re in Philadelphia, too. If no one claims this and you want ideas for a local home, you might want to check with City of Elderly Love or Philly Paws. The first rescues senior dogs from ACCT and they have large seniors come through who might benefit from it. And PAWS has many tripawds come through and they might hear of someone who could use it.
