Set of 4, brand new (I bought wrong size by accident). 

They look like the black/grey ones on this Amazon page:

See the size chart on that page; these are size XL, so they are 7.9 inches in length, paw width 3.54 inches.  

They have white silicone patches on the bottom to help prevent slipping on floors. They also come with little velcro straps you put around the top to help keep the socks from slipping down. They are decent quality; probably work better for some dogs than others (there is some tendency to spin around on the foot). Please note, these are socks, not booties, so are better for indoor use. 

Let me know if you are interested!

That’s so nice of you Amy, thank you for your generous offer!

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

I am interested in the socks. I have a  choc lab and we are going on a road trip in a.couple of weeks. The cabin has wood floors so I was going to take rugs but I think the socks would work great. I will be happy to purchase them. Just let me know. I have a ramp I am donating if you know of anyone who is interested. Only used one time.

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!

Hi Brownie1201,

I sent you a PM to request your mailing info – just PM that back to me and I’ll send the socks (no $$ necessary!).

Awesome!  I’m changing the topic title to ‘TAKEN’.
