I have a new Help Em Up Harness, size Large (80-125lbs) with two different types of hip lifts (conventional and u-band; see differences here: https://helpemu…..-hip-lift/). 

This harness was recommended by Griffin’s surgeon after his amputation, but I opted for the Ruffwear Webmaster at the time.  This harness was purchased when Griffin experienced hind end paralysis, and he wore it for about 2 hours total because the sizing was too big.  The harness is quite sturdy and the dual handles provide a great level of support.  I can ship to you or meet if you are local to NYC.

Griffin lived an amazing life for 11 years! Diagnosed with osteosarcoma on March 17, 2020, Griffin's right forelimb was amputated on April 2, 2020. Ten days later he was running and playing fetch! Lung metastasis discovered in July 2020 did not slow down Griffin and he lived joyfully for the next 7 months, passing peacefully at home on February 11, 2021. https://griffin.tripawds.com

If this is still available,  I would be interested in it.   Our 7 year old boxer (his birthday is today) is getting a left rear amputation next Thursday.   He has a tumor wrapped around his femoral nerve causing him severe pain.

And Griffin’s still making a difference♥️♥️

Off topic…how is the foster working out?

AMD Ryan, hopefully  you’ll hop back over to the forums and let us know how your boxer is doing.  And give him a Happy Birthday steak.  Sounds like he deserves it!

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

Hi!  We did get the harness!  Cole had his amputation surgery Thursday and is doing really well other than some discomfort at night it seems.  We are really pleased.with how he is doing now!  Thanks for the help and sending the harness out!  We will be sure to pass it on when we no longer need it.
