Oliver, was a rescue, we got him when he was a year old and he will be eight years old in March. He is the largest Airedale I have ever seen, not fat just large, tips the scales at 104lbs. Six months ago, while walking him we noticed he was dragging his right rear foot, so we took him to the vet and another and another, had numerous blood tests done looking for TBD's, X-rays, MRI and finally a test for Degenerative Myelopathy, which he tested positive for, unfortunately there is no cure for this disease. We were devastated when we found out his diagnosis, so I vowed to make the rest of his days with us as pleasant as possible. That's when I found 'Handicapped Pets' and the carts that you provide to help us to make our boy's remaining days more enjoyable, by having his mobility. It took a few weeks to get Oliver used to the cart, now he goes...goes...goes...in it, the problem we have is when we turn him around to head home, he puts the brakes on, cause he doesn't want to go back home.


Thanks so much,
