Bailey’s Story
“Our dog, Bailey, is a beautiful 9 (almost 10) year old Rottweiler and she recently began having some trouble getting around. It was obvious that she was uncomfortable when she tried to lay/sit down. We took her to the vet, expecting the worst, and we were told she had spondylosis of the spine with 3 small fractures in her back. That wasn’t “great” news….but it was better than I expected. The day after her visit to the vet, and 1 pain pill later, Bailey got a sudden burst of energy and took off running to play with our neighbors dog. Two days later Bailey could no longer use her back legs. The vet told us she very likely could have done some permanent damage to her spinal cord, and I as a nurse and my husband as a chiropractor, knew that the probability of her regaining use of her back legs was slim…but we were not going to give up. We tried some steroids, but we were not getting any improvement, and it broke our hearts to see Bailey just “laying” around. She is a dog who is so incredibly playful and full of life, and she is actually as healthy as a dog half her age…other than this recent injury. We knew we were not going to put Bailey through any kind of invasive procedures/surgeries at her age, as she is pretty elderly for a Rotty. We were beside ourselves and we were trying to prepare our kids for the worst. It just didn’t seem right to us to put Bailey down when she was completely normal/healthy…other than she could no longer use her back legs.  Then we thought about it and we began to read and research the possibility of using a doggie wheelchair. I can’t tell you how many companies we looked into, but once I found “Ruff Rollin”, there was no doubt which company we were going to use to order Bailey’s chair from. Jason and Sierra were so helpful when taking the measurements of Bailey and they worked very hard to get Bailey’s chair out to us ASAP. Their prices are “very” reasonable and once you get your wheelchair you can tell right away that it is worth every penny paid! The quality of the chair is outstanding and Jason did such a great job getting Bailey’s chair perfect for her and Sierra did a great job making the harness/saddle perfect as well. We were a little nervous to try Bailey in her new chair because by the time we had researched/ordered it, it was a little over a week since she had walked. We were pleasantly surprised that Bailey didn’t seem to be bothered by the chair at all and once we lifted her back end up and attached it to the chair, you could see her get excited right away. She was like a kid in a candy store. Within minutes she was walking again…and to be honest it made me cry. It was just so good to see Bailey back up on her feet and mobile again. It amazed me that this was even possible and we have Ruff Rollin to thank for this! Bailey gets excited now when she sees us get her wheels out and she is adjusting pretty well to her new found back legs. Jason and Sierra have been great to work with…they followed up with us regularly when we first got Bailey’s wheels to make sure they fit her properly and they were more than willing to answer any and all questions we had. They have a true compassion towards helping dogs like Bailey and their families. It is amazing that products like theirs exist and I am certainly glad that they do. Bailey is such a special part of our lives and because of Ruff Rollin, Bailey is able to still be a special “mobile” part of our lives. She is even able to play with her favorite ball still…she doesn’t roll it “quite” the same, but she is still very, very happy playing with it. Thank you Jason and Sierra for giving us a means to keep Bailey happy and for giving us the hope we needed!”

Sincerely…Matt, Mariasa, Logan, Conner, and “Bailey”

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]
