Default Recommendations for rear support harness?

Hi there, I have a senior girl, 10 y/o, who has developed arthritis in her back legs. I have tested a few harnesses on her but had no luck so far (didn't fit right). I may order the one below. Does anyone have suggestions for a rear harness that supports while walking?

Rear Support Harness for Dog - Walkabout - X-Small

Thanks in advance for your help

that looks/sounds like a good one.....like that they have a basset model. We had to use a sling type one after surgery. I like the looks of this one better.

looks like your doggie is a real sweetie!

Thanks 3kbasset :-) I love her and the breed in general. I'm curious to see if anyone else has had experience with these harnesses. I'm hopeful since the "model" was a basset!

No I have never seen it before but wanted to say welcome to the forum. Your girl looks very cute. It doesn't look like it would be very good for a female to go pee with but looks like it would help to get them up.

Maddies back legs go everywhere. I wouldn't say she has arthritis but am told by the vet it's a pinched nerve. She doesn't have much feeling in them but it doesn't seem to slow her down much. Does your girl have allot of trouble getting up on her own?

Hi Herzo, thank you for the welcome. Sally does struggle getting up on her own, especially on hard wood or snow/ice outside. The more active she is, the less the arthritis acts up (similar to people). This would be quite helpful for her outside, especially this time of year. I think I'll call the company and see if they would be willing to take it back if it does work. It's worth a shot!
