I have a GSD which I rescued from a shelter seven years ago. She is now 10 years old and her hips are getting worse.
Currently, I am supporting her with a rear harness, but I am running out of strength carrying her 4 times a day around with 90 lbs.
I am not the youngest anymore.
I can across this website during my research for DIY wheelchairs since I am not able to afford one for my baby.
Does maybe someone have a drawing or plan on how I can make or assemble a good wheelchair by using the spare parts offered here?
Thank you very much.
This link shows different sizes of DIY wheelchairs. If this does not do it please post back, I have not searched for this topic for a while and there may be new information out there, I'd be glad to have a look.
I am also not young and cared for a 63 lb dog I could not lift. It really affected my back.
[EDIT] I started to suggest an alternative but they are out of stock, disregard.
Is your dog active and is she going to run or just walk?
Also, how long are her legs if measured like this?
she has never been active. She is more like me. Walk.
If I measured correctly, her legs are 19". The total length from toe to back is 26".
Yes, I feel you with the back. It is killing me.
Some would say. put her down. I say, why? As long there is appetite, as long there is life.
Yes, she has hip problems, early stadium of dementia, arthritis, whines a lot, and wakes me up in the middle of the night.
My 81 year old mother is kind of the same and we do not put her down.
I love my dog.
