Default Re: I feel like giving up

Just adding - if you are able to bring him home, and the rear legs are still a concern - there are some harness options out there that can help tremendously. I had a 70 pound senior dog who had a case of vestibular - and the help em up harness was a true life saver for my back as he was not able to bear any weight on any leg for a couple of days.

Here is a link to a video on the harness (you can find many varieties of it on Amazon):
