Q. Can anyone tell me where and who can help get a dog harnesses or wheels to walk and have a full life? $400+ dollars per isnway out of budgeting. Pls

A. There isn't really much you can do. Any sort of doggy-harness-wheelchair is going to cost a lot of money because it needs to be fit to your dogs body, and your dogs legs. A custom fit will cost you a lot of money. There is no quick fix here unfortunately. I recommend seeing a veterinarian about your concerns, maybe they can help you figure out a cheaper alternative. You could also see a specialist who deals with long-back dogs, or injured dogs that can give you an estimate on a wheelchair.

You could also try to build one yourself if you're up for the challenge! Or you could try raising some money for your pup.. a lot of people like to help a pup in need. Bake some baked goods, and have a little bake-sale where you raise money for your pups wheelchair.
