That is so sweet of you, what a beautiful gift. Thanks!

In our Tripawds Gear blog we have stroller reviews here if anyone wants to see how they work. We think they’re pawesome.

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

Hello!

I am new to these forums but not to being a tripod mom. Our GSD, Jaida, is 10 years old and has been a tripod since birth (leg deformity with amputation at 7 months).

We’ve been very fortunate that her mobility has been so good for so long, but she is starting to find it harder and harder to go on walks much more than 5 minutes at a time, but loves being at the park to roll and chew her ball and interact with other dogs.  More importantly, she loves being with US. We lost Jaida’s older sister a year ago, and her new little sister has energy to burn…we’d like nothing more than to be able to take them BOTH on nice long walks – Jaida howls when we have to leave her behind 🙁  I’ve taken to carrying her when she gets totally pooped, but at 55-60 lbs I can only manage a block or two before she gets too heavy (and also it freaks out the neighbours, lol).

SO. We have been looking for a stroller that’s stable and large enough for a bigger dog. Decent ones are pricey though, and my partner and I both recently finished school, so things are a bit tight.  I stumbled on this post, and though I know you’re in New York, I wonder if there is some way I could get the stroller here – we’re on the other coast, in BC, Canada!

It’s probably a lot to ask, but if you’re willing to consider it, we’d be very appreciative!

Cheers,

Crystal and Jaida

If the stroller is still available we would love it.  I am in TN and my dog is having surgery tomorrow.  Thank you for your generosity.

Thank you so much.  My husband and I are so scared for him.  Bosco needs all the healing thoughts he can get.  So grateful.
