I was looking into these so Shu could see more of the world than she is currently able. She desperately needs more stimulation and would love longer “walks” than she can physically manage to do. Is this for sale? Where is it located? As an aside …it is so painful to have those items that are purchased near the end in hopes of offering help for longer. I have a Coolbed that suffered the same fate but unfortunately cannot be emptied refilled and donated :-/.

Just wanted to chime in and say how amazing this stroller is.
We have had this stroller for almost three years now and my sister bought one last year for her dog because she liked ours so much. It’s has a really smooth ride and it’s very easy to maneuver- even with a 65 lb dog inside! We were able to easily use it on pavement and even on some hiking trails. It actually has the same brand of tires (Kenda) as my mountain bike! You can also buy a conversion kit to attach it to a bike and use it as a doggy bike trailer which is quite fun. Whoever gets this is literally getting gifted the Rolls Royce of dog strollers!
Shelly you are so generous to offer this so someone else can have the gift of more freedom and fun for their pup.
…all my PMs I cannot find it access…am hunting for my PMs or remember how to start a new one.

Shubeanie, I have a stroller. Brownie would rather walk and sniff. It’s only been used maybe three times. It’s the Expedition four wills, large. Brownie being a lab can sit and look out or curl up in a ball and lay down. It also has a front and back entrance. Let me know, it’s just sitting in the garage and it would be nice it someone could use it. Send me your email and i will send you a pic.
Hi there!! Soooo nice. I private messaged you but in addition to what I said there …I have to laugh about the ramp. Not only because what you said was so funny but also because there are so many things we try for our pets that may end up in the garage. Or in a garage sale. Lol. We have had more than our fair share of challenges with car ramps and level change dilemmas. Ahhhh the life of a tripawd! Xoxo
Hi! are either strollers still available? I am trying to find one here but I live in a very small town in SA. I would have to check at shipping charges but my Samkha would really benefit from it. He has recently started struggling on his walks but he really loves getting out.
As much as I would love your stroller, I have just had a look online and shipping would cost me more than what the stroller is worth which I really can’t afford. Thank you so much for being willing to donate it. I’m going to try a DIY solution for now and some strengthening exercises.
Sorry if of topic and not sure you will see but I would highly recommend the strengthening exercises often taught in canine physical therapy by a certified provider. They have been very helpful for ShuShu and I believe are protecting her from further injury. We do daily core strengthening, rear leg muscle development (she is a front leg amputee), modified walking regimen to prevent overuse injury, and much more. Her orthopedist (who isn’t a proponent of PT for dogs) exclaimed “Wow she is so well muscled back here! That’s great!” I replied that of course she is as we built those muscles together in PT (I’m always campaigning! She is the only tripawd at our very large regular vet practice which I found amazing). She is getting a stroller to be able to see more of the world without impacting her front remaining leg more than necessary. #savethejoints
