I purchased this stroller but Homer just cannot use it.  To be honest, even though it was listed in the tripawd gear recoomendation, it is not appropriate for a large front tripawd.   It only has a front loaded entrance, so it is hard to load Homer and it’s also impossible for him to turn around in it so he can see out the window.  We tried twice and both times he pulled a muscle in it.

This would be PERFECT for a smaller portable tripawd, or maybe a larger rear tripawd as it would likely be easier to load a rear amputee from the front.

Of course, this is offered FREE to anyone who might benefit, but you need to come on and git it – as I can’t ship it – it’s too large.  I live just outside Philadelphia.

If someone’s pup seems like a good fit, message me!

Hey guys! Which stroller is it? Can you share the name brand? We want to make sure people are aware of this. Sorry it didn’t work for him, that is a total bummer! 

Give a smooch to Homer from all of us, we hope he’s doing well and doesn’t have any more pulled muscles, poor guy.

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

Just wanted to let you know I purchased the expedition stroller on this site. It has front and  back access. My 78 lb lab can sit and put his head out or curl up in a ball and lay down. He is also a front leg tripawd so I do need to help him in it. Just wanted to let you know.
