Chamberlin is in a Full Support Dog Wheelchair that was built for him because his front legs will never heal normally. However, because he had been left so long without mobility, he needed rehabilitation in his rear legs as well. When his rear has been fully rehabbed, we will simply pull off his rear saddle, and he will have full use of his rear legs. The design that we built for him prevented the Guilford County Animal Hospital from spending more money on a new design once his rear was rehabbed.
Sookie was also dropped off as a stray, and severely abused. She is just a beautiful little girl, and loves her new mobility in her new tiny doggie wheelchair.
Thank you Guilford County Animal Hospital for putting your trust in Ruff Rollin’ Wheelchairs for dogs!
Elmo lives in Mallorca, Spain! Elmo, yes, Elmo, runs a vespa rental company called Bullimoto. How cool is that? Here is a testimony from his dad, after he received his doggie wheelchair.
“the biggest thank you possible to Ruff Rollin! Elmo loves his wheels and is out patrolling the Port. He is now even more famous!”
“Ellie just wants to say thank you for her new wheels. She gets around really well. I was amazed how fast she caught on to her wheels. I have even noticed a huge difference in Ellie’s mood. She is very happy that she can now get around.
“My mother, Sherri, purchased a Ruff Rollin chair for our German Shepherd, Legolas, about two weeks ago. I’m attaching some photos of him in his new chair, which he has grown to love! It took him a day or two to get used to it, but now he’s rolling around everywhere with us and the rest of his four-legged family. He even still herds our nigerian goats when we let them out. Legolas was getting very mopey with his bad hips but now he’s back to being the active guy we all love. We have a farm and he is back to herding our goats, chickens, turkeys, and can even follow the horses all over the rocky AZ terrain. Again, thank you guys so much for making his chair for him, You’re amazing, and I cannot thank you enough!”

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]
