I have a 2yr old Chihuahua with no front legs.  I'm looking to either buy or I'd gladly take it off your hands.  I'm looking for a wheelchair.  My dog Lulu weighs 6lbs. Please help.
Thank you

Welcome ynggrama38 ! Have you looked at harness web sites ? Some of them have wheeled carts also as well as medical brace sites. I saw some when researching harnesses for Trooper. I can check through the sites if they are still in my bookmarks.
eta- Heres 1 with a front support cart & apparently a rental option https://www.handicappedpets.com/custom-carts/front-support-cart.html.
Here's a site that compares wheelchairs & has advice on caring for a handicapped pet ,http://dogswithdisabilities.com/wheels.htm.

Hi ynggrama! I highly recommend Eddie's Wheels. They're based in Massachusetts and have two chihuahuas with the same disability as yours, so they're quite familiar with their needs. Before you buy a cart I really recommend comparing videos of them on Youtube. Different makers produce wildly varying quality carts, especially for the front legs. Very few makers are familiar with front-leg carts.

Here's a link to Eddie's Wheels: http://eddieswheels.com/

Just looked at Eddie's Wheels and they look much nicer than any others I have seen ! If you are looking at a harness also , the Help em up harness that they recommend gave us 2 extra years with Trooper and my cousin 2 extra years with Rose. I can't say enough about how helpful both the product and the company were.
