Hi- This is BillyBear in his sporty red shoe. Not an action shot, but he looks pretty cute I think! (he is a bearded collie but his hair was all cut off pre-surgery!) The shoe helps stabilize him on the tile floor and in the yard (rock landscape) and the rubber sole helps him grip the floor to stand. We use a sock and a gel insert, and he wears his shoe from morning until bedtime. He knows it helps him, so he is very cooperative when it comes to “booting up”. I think he knows how sporty he looks too! I cannot thank Neo-Paws enough- especially when I see him run across the yard! Heidi
