    Yeah he walks like he don't want to put weight on it , something that has called my attention is that when he wakes up and starts walking is worst, when he starts runing and jumping is like nothing is wrong but as I said before when he starts to walk normally his foots seems like it has no power on it, is like it hurts him but he doesn't cry it entering he acts like everything is normal but he doesnt walk normal

    Do you give him any type of joint supplements? If not, try that for a few days to a week and see if there is any improvement

    Hi @Jorge Rodriguez I haven't talked to you in a while. Sorry to hear Chucky is limping. Dolly had a bad limp this summer and the vet told me she needed a knee brace, I checked out different knee braces and decided to double up the dosage I was giving her, Glucosamine and Chondroitin supplements. They worked, she does not limp anymore, it takes a couple of weeks to work. You can find them at Walmart in the vitamin section. I use triple strength joint support. I give her 2 pills after her dinner everyday. They are 1700 mg for the 2 of them. I dip them in butter and she swallows them whole. Don't let him jump off of furniture if you can help it, or jump off of beds. Help him down. Bulldog joints are big and sometimes this comes with problems, like limping.

    2 of my girls at different times tore their ACL's. Had x-rays taken and it showed this. The vet said they needed surgery but crated them for 8 weeks solid just taking them out to pee and poop. This is a MUST. Also started them on joint supplements. It is 2 years later and they walk fine with no limp whatsoever. I will give them supplements for life since they say it causes arthrtis later in life. You really should have him seen by a vet to get a diagnosis. They can sometimes tell just by moving the joints around. Good luck and let us know how it turns out.

    As I said before, I was told to consider the surgery, but same as roanne9145, had great improvement after 8 weeks. I did not crate for all that time, but I just tried to keep her relaxed, short leisurely "stop and smell" walks as opposed to real purposeful walks. Tried to restrict running and jumping (hey it happend), but for the most part she self regulated and didn't overuse her limb too much. Also gave a joint supplement.

    What if its a sort of "growing pain?" When bulldogs are growing, can't that throw off their walk?
