    Yes. Shortly after we got Harlea she developed Pano. Scared the hell out of me.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    No, not just out of the blue, but Dozer did limp after he fell on his paw, and either sprained or bruised it when he was a puppy. The vetX-rayed his foot, and gave him a pain medication, and an anti inflammatory, it took 4 days before it got better.

    Wally started limping just out of the blue, and I had taken him to the vets a couple of days later. She said it was growing pains, and after a couple of weeks he was fine… Crazy!!!

    Went for a walk one morning when Buster was 5 or 6 months old. First and only time I ever used a collar and he refused to walk past our property line, I got so frustrated because I refused to pull him and went back in the house and about 30 minutes latter he started limping. Took him to the vet and she said it was growing pains. Pretty cool though she showed me his entire skeletal structure and pointed out how English Bulldogs bones grow so fast that their bodies can't keep up with it. She said it will probably happen again which it did twice afterwards and I called her and she said just watch him for a day or two and she was right it went away on it's own the next morning.

    Bocephus has had a few instances where he would limp. He likes to do what I call the bulldog blitz, he will run at full speed all over and do laps around the coffee table. I think as he's growing he may just be over exerting himself and his muscles get sore. He usually recovers within a day or two

    It happened 2x with Jake. He was outside playing and I suddenly heard a very loud cry like he was in total pain. Went outside so fast to check on him but nothing. He was just sitting near the door.

    The second time, he was in my bedroom playing and suddenly he was running to me crying like saying "Mommy, my paw hurts". It really looked like that! I had to hug him and comforted him that "it's okay Jakey" while rubbing his front legs. He was really a baby! I know co'z I have a 20 yr old and a 17 yr old and they still are babies LOL

    Bentley when he was little started to limp...we had him take it easy for a few days then then went to the vet, she recommended surgery, then went to a second vet and in which they said it was growing pains. I started him on a hip and joint supplement, he started to walk normal within a week.
