Remember the couple that had purchased a dog wheelchair from an online auction site because it was a “good deal” ? Well; good news; they were able to return the chair and ended up purchasing a Ruff Rollin’ Dog Wheelchair. We were very humbled that she would go to the trouble of returning the chair (the company was very professional about accepting the return), and come back to us for a new wheelchair even though it was more expensive than the first dog wheelchair she purchased. I know, quite a mouthful. To make a long story kinda short, we fitted Cash to his new dog wheels in a Montana blizzard, and away he went! I had to run down the street with him to even get a glimpse of the fit. It was fantastic! If you have never seen a dog on wheels, this one is worth checking out. Just so happens we have a video of Cash on the website. Check it out. So what’s my point to all this? You get what you pay for. Spend a little extra money on your dog’s wheelchair; he or she will appreciate it.
Mom & dad will be looking for an adoptive family for me. They have tried their darndest to keep up with me but life has other plans right now. They’re not going to pick just anyone… this is going to be a long, hard road for them. If you know of a family with the time, patience & experience with a “special” dog,… please contact them. ::sniff::

When asked “WHY DO YOU DO WHAT YOU DO?” I say “I GET TO ADD THE SPARKLE BACK!” “If I could have taken a picture of the sparkle in my dog (GSDX) Mindy’s eyes when she realized that those wheels where giving her the freedom to move, run and play ball again, it would have said it all! She had become depressed because of her Degenerative Myelopathy and was not able to chase squirrels or play ball anymore and Ruff Rollin’ changed all that for her. She was sick for 1.5years with DM and she used her wheels [... more]
All of our Rear Support Wheelchairs are convertible into a Full Support Design. The typical case where this might happen is with a progressive disease such as degenerative myelopathy. Degenerative myelopathy of dogs is a slowly progressive, non-inflammatory, and painless, degeneration of the myelin sheath that surrounds the spinal cord. It is most commonly seen in German Shepherds and Welsh Corgis, although is occasionally recognized in other breeds such as Boxers The cause is unknown, although genetic factors are suspected. The early onset usually occurs later than age 5 and usually begins with a slight knuckling over of the rear feet. You [... more]
