Dogs with mobility issues
SRS have also been supported with harnesses and slings for our less able dogs by Quincys Dogs who manufacture mobility products for dogs. They also have some great information on supporting your dog through operations and arthritis so check out their website.
Quincys not only sells amazing products for owners of old or injured dogs, but there is a heart-warming story behind how the company first formed.
The company is aptly named after the owners three-legged Newfoundland dog – Quincy. Quincy lost his leg through contracting MRSA at the age of two and as he grew older, the owner desperately wanted to help him stay mobile.
Sadly, at the time, there just wasn’t any suitable products within the marketplace good enough that took into account major points such as; pressure points; weight distribution; comfort for the dog etc., and combined all these into the one....So, the owner took it on himself to set about finding a design company who could help him produce the perfect products for his dog. Once produced, they worked wonders for his dog.
He then wondered if these could help others and as he was a canine hydrotherapist at the time, he had plenty of dog customers who were willing to test the products. The harnesses worked wonders and this is how the company originated. Nowadays the products are bought worldwide for a variety of reasons, ranging from canine arthritis, cruciate ligament injuries to simply the older dog. Quincy, peacefully died at the ripe age of 13.
One of our top selling products is our GenX harness. Not only does the GenX harness give your dog back leg or front leg support on walks, it also provides the perfect level of support to assist your dog getting in and out of the car and walking up the stairs. It’s so versatile, it’s even been used as a training tool by dog trainers and vets love the product because it helps to avoid so many back injuries to their staff.

Terms and Conditions of Adoption
At the time of adoption, there is a donation expected to be paid for each pet. This goes towards the ever growing vet and transport / foster costs and is not a payment for, nor a purchase of the adopted pet. Adoption fees are non-refundable and is payable on the day of the adoption OR in advance of Pet travel.
The need for insurance is essential as the rescue will not be held responsible for vet’s bills (unless otherwise agreed in exceptional circumstances).
We generally do NOT home dogs where they will be living outside except in exceptional circumstances.
We do not re-home dogs to be used for guarding, breeding or anything other than as a family pet.
We do not place dogs in a family home where they will be left for longer than 4/5 hours a day at any one time. We will accept homes where a dog walker or alternative arrangements can be made.
The new owner must agree to have the pet either neutered or spayed within 3 months if the pet, for medical or age reasons has not been neutered or spayed yet, at the new owners expense (unless otherwise agreed with the rescue).
New owners must also agree that we can keep in touch for the rest of the pets life. A follow up visit may be arranged.
New owners are not allowed to re-home the pet themselves; the pet must come back to Saving Romanian Strays.
New owners must advise us immediately of any change in circumstances which would mean that the pet is not getting the attention etc, that the pet deserves.
We cannot reserve nor guarantee that the dog applied for will always be available. This is due to multiple applications made for each animal. We do multiple concurrent homechecks for each dog to ensure that if an application falls through, another home is ready instead if having to start over.
If everything goes well at the Home Check and you are able to adopt a pet through our Rescue, you must be made aware that you cannot at any time part with that pet for any reason, unless he/she comes back to our Rescue.
