  My dog is walking on only three legs, does anyone know why?
He has 4 legs, but he walks around holding one of his back legs up. He does not seem to be in pain, but I know he is.
First I thought maybe he had a thorn in his foot, but usually he would be able to pull it out himself. I looked at the foot and it all looks good. Could he possibly have sprained it or something? This first started Friday afternoon.
I'm worried about him, he's only a couple years old.

I'd get him in. It could be a knee or hip problem, and those things are painful!

Good luck to you both!

If I were you, I would take him to a vet. He might have sprained or pulled something. Get him seen by a vet as soon as possible.

VETS!! NOW!!!

We can't diagnose a problem like that over the internet. It could be any number of things, a broken leg, a dislocated hip or any other number of problems.

if hes only a couple years old then hes probably still running around and exploring like a puppy. he probably did something to it like he fell or jumped off of something. you should get it looked at by the vet or something

Take him to a vet and have him checked out. Obviously something is up for him to be doing that.

Years after my dog was hit by a car, he limped. You should see a vet, it sounds like he is in pain. =(
