Our 11 year old Australian Shepherd was just diagnosed with a fibrosarcoma, we’re gonna have to amputate her rear leg. We live on the third floor so this harness will be vital to her being able to get out. If anyone has one available we would be forever grateful. Thanks so much in advance.

Welcome and best wishes for your pup. What’s her name?

When asking for a specific size harness, please be sure to confirm your measurements to determine the best size and proper fit. You might also consider applying for the Tripawds Gear Fund.

Our girls name is Zuzu, we have measured and double checked our measurements and she’s definitely a medium.

Pawesome. We just got an Angel Exchange Get-a-Grip harness in the mail and would love to gift it to Zuzu. Please PM us your mailing details.

Just wanted to welcome Zuzu to our family! She’s a beautiful girl! We would love to see more pictures of your sweet gal!

Stay connected and let us know how we can help. Getting to this point is stressful to say the least. And then dealing with the recovery can be pretty rough for a week or two.

Once you get past all that though and you see Zuzu’s sparkle come back it will all be worth it!!

We’re here for you so let us know how we can help, okay?

Hugs

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

Thank you. I’ve been cramming my head with as much info as I can. This site and everyone on it is a godsend. All the positive experiences of other members is what helped us decide to go ahead and amputate. As we continue on this journey we’ll be sure to keep everyone updated.

A d remeber, Zuzu doesn’t care about any ole’ diagnosis schmognosis! She certainly doesn’t have a timeframe stamped in her pretty butt and doesn’t care about days on a calendar!! 🙂

She does care about all the loving and spoiling she’s getting from you day in and day out! And you think Zuzu couldn’t be anymore spoiled? Ha! Tripawds get anything they want anytime they want it because they are so darn cute!!! 🙂
