This is a very nice pet carrier that is perfect for my little 4 pound Maltese dog. It is comfortable to carry and lightweight but sturdy. It is well ventilated, which is really good because my dog is claustrophobic and normally won't go in carriers very happily, but this one is open enough where she can see out and know I am right there. The carrier has a solid steel frame for safety. I am very happy with this carrier.
