I have a 7 month old boxer puppy and the same thing happened over the weekend. She woke up this morning with no use of the leg at all. I'm bringing her to the vet tomorrow, they said it could be a sprain of small tare. Good luck with your pet and my advise is to bring your dog to the vet earlier than I did, I waited 5 days.

I have a 4 year boarder terrier,she still acts like a puppy. When we woke up this morning she appeared to be unable to weight on her one of her rear legs, however she will jump up to greet you putting weight on both legs. From time to time she is stretching out her poorly leg. She does not appear to be in pain. She does from time to time whilst walking her rear leg has gone into a spasm and it has disappeared as quickly as it arrived. Could this be a similar thing?

He most likely hurt it jumping which would cause a sprain. Some one in your household my have advertly pulled his leg as he was tring to get away and strained it. If it doesn't go away in a day or two I would take him to the vet and have him checked.

I also think it is a sprain but if he appears to be in pain then you should bring him to the vet earlier.

Restrict activities (kennel) for the rest of the day. If he is still limping tomorrow see your vet. Could be sprain or pulled muscle, broken bone, or a knee or hip problem. Hope he's feeling better soon and it's minor.
