Basket for small dog on Electra Townie
 
Is there a basket for the front of a Townie (not the one they sell, already have one and it's too small) that's big enough for a 7 1/2 pound dog?

If you can mount this rack to your fork you can zip tie a Wald 137 basket (or larger Wald 139) to it. I've carried 20 pounds in such a setup - it's unwieldy with that much weight but with 10 pounds or less it's not bad.

Here's my setup with the smaller Wald 137 basket:

Pretty sure a 7 1/2 pound dog would fit in that basket - if not, you could get a bigger basket.

Ive seen a few different baskets with a cage type top that is taller than the basket, specifically for carrying pets. I don't know who makes them. I think nantucket bicycle basket made one years ago.
