Hello everyone. I am hoping to find a used Flagline harness for my girl, Jaxsa. She is an 80 pound Rottweiler. She had her left front leg amputated 18 months ago and has been amazingly great! She is now almost 10 and her right front leg is starting to give out on her more often. I’m not sure how else to help her except for a harness. She is used to hopping around my farm unattended so this is a big deal for her. If anyone can help or has a suggestion for an alternative, I would appreciate it very much! The harness is a bit out of my budget right now. Thank you in advance! Nancy and Jaxsa

Hi there! Your future posts won't need to wait for approval so post away.

Here are a couple of exchange harnesses that might work. PM the posters to see if they are still available:



I’m not sure how else to help her except for a harness. 

 Please consider taking advantage of the Tripawds Rehab Reimbursement Program. The foundation can pay for your first rehab visit to have her assessed. There is a reason why her leg is giving out and these experts can pinpoint the cause and show you how to help her best, and how to avoid future injury. There's nothing to pay for since we cover up to $200 so please call a therapist or PM me your location and I can find one for you.

Wow, thank you so much! My zip code is 32948. I just assumed her good leg is getting worn out. Maybe there is something else happening?

Hi, I have a large to extra large Flagline harness available.  It belonged to my choc lab and he was 90 lbs, so it seems like it would fit.  Just let me know.

My Beautiful Beloved Brownie was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on February 26, 2019.  With all odds against him he lived an additional one year and eight days with amputation, love, and prayer.  I was honored to be his mom, and I have never been so proud!  He will live forever in my Heart!
