When Katie was a pup, we got her at 11 weeks in January. She was always cold when outside. We spend a lot of time walking and the dogs go everywhere with us. I tried dog sweaters, but with her coarse, stiff hair, the sweater would crawl down her back until she was wearing around her waist. Also if it happened to rain she was still cold.
I came up with a solution, Polar fleece! I measured her and made a polar fleece sweater for her. It worked great, it stayed where it was suppose to and even if it got soaking wet, she was still warm.
She wears it almost all winter, when she is outside or in the truck.
The sweater covers her chest and belly where she has no hair.The sweater would have to be adapted some for a male dog .
I would be willing to make these for Pit bulls or Boxers, or any other dog who needs some extra warmth , on a made to order basis. I now prefer to make the new vest with or without long sleeves as it accommodates a male dog well.
I would need measurements as follows Chest (largest part) circumference, neck circumference, and length of back from base of neck to base of tail,please measure dog while standing up and only from base of neck to tail,(I need to try and get an accurate measurement in this area to insure the jacket or longjohns are not too long) and the measurement of the distance between front legs.
Please look on the ready made page at the very bottom for fleece fabric available.
Cost will be $40. per vest ,hoodies and longjohns will be $45.extra charge for hoods or sleeves on vest will be $10.00, shipping and handling will be $10.00 combine shipping on two or more sending Priority mail.From now on I will have to ask for payment in advance, as I have trouble with people paying for garments after they are made. Also shipping to Canada will be a different price than above.
I can accept Paypal, or Money orders . I will accept personal checks, subject to clearing.
Please email me, if you are interested!

This is Alee's story as written by her owner.
Alee is an Amstaff mix, and was found on the street at 7-8 weeks old. Someone had taken her ears off before she escaped or was let go. She was most likely intended to be a bait dog. however thankfully her ears are the only scars she has from her first life. We got her at 6 months (she had been in a private foster home for 2 months, then at rescue for 2 months). She is the most wonderful, loving animal I have ever had, and I've had everything from fish to snakes and lizard to small furry things to cats. She is just an amazing animal.
Not all the longjohns are made for Large dogs, this is an extra small.
