That’s very kind of you. Sorry your GSD didn’t get to use it, but this is a beautiful way to ho or him. If you ever up to it, we would love to hear more about your pup.

Dear Margaret, My name is Maria, I’m so sorry for your loss. I hope you and your family find comfort in the good memories you had together and in knowing that she’ll stay in your heart forever ❤️. I recently joined this online community to find some advise and resources for my 12-year-old named Calyx and saw this post, if the harness is still available we would love to have it. He lost his rear right leg at 12 months old and has done really well until recently, when we noticed a few small changes to his mobility. We took him to the vet last week and he was diagnosed with having a partial tear to the cranial cruciate ligament of the remaining rear leg. Since the diagnosis, we have done everything we can to gather all the supplies that he needs to be safe and remain active. We’ve built him a ramp, got a sling and are looking for the right rear brace. However I think the key to make all this work will be a harness. We’ve been practicing walking with the sling but he normally hops side to side, and with the sling we have to walk him by our side and we keep almost bumping into each other. A harness will also help me have a better grip to help him out of the car. So please if its still available, we would love to have it for Calyx
