Hi everyone! I was just looking to see if anyone has any Ruffwear dog boots that they have no need for anymore. I’m looking to purchase some for my Navi, a ~50lb pitty mix who has been a tripawd for almost 1.5 years now. I adopted her with 3 legs after she was hit by a car. We are looking particularly to protect her paws from the snow, but multi-use booties would be great. I am a veterinary student and will do whatever is best for Navi, but I wanted to check here before making the purchase for a pair.
Thank you in advance for anyone who reads this! Let me know if you have any questions!

Just want to say thank you for adopting a sweet tripawd Pittie (mix).
While you wait to see if there are any bottles to be offered, you can also check out mushers secret. I think…but not sure…that’s a protective option.
