i have a solve it houndabout stroller to pass on to another tripawd in need. It’s in pretty good condition and holds about up to 70/80 pounds. Set up as a stroller but I have the bike attachment as well. Here is a link for what it looks like. I am in New York City but can get it anywhere.

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!
