    I can't seems to get a picture of him having his leg at the back. It's pretty late here so I can't go out to buy some non slip mat. Does brick work as the board? I will wash and then wrap it up with towel to use as boards and corral him up.

    He just ate his, here are some pictures! : )

    He's always trying to pull and kick using his back leg to move.



    He stands up and falls again, and be a frog all over again



    Just him eating.



    I'll never be able to get a direct picture of his face, I think he's camera shy.



    And last but not least.. A SLEEPING FROG!

    Internet search on how to "hobble" your puppy. This is what was wrong with Orion. She couldn't walk using her hind legs until she was 7 weeks and that was AFTER we hobbled her. Basically you secure the back legs together so they don't "split"....just enough so they are secure. They have to be able to walk. Less than a week of hobbling, Orion could walk on her own. Here is some video of her hobbled. She did not leave her mom until she was 10 weeks old.
    Before hobbling.

    During hobbling..she is 6 weeks old here.

    I know Chevy wasnt swimmer but he did present like that at first so maybe a pic of him early on might help @jiwamon see what it looks like xx

    It certainly could. Hobbling like @Libra926 said is a good idea too, I just found the corral to be easier. The one pictured is for a very small pup, we also have a corral for larger pups. Anything you can find to help footing and grip will be good.

    To test if his legs actually work, hold 3 legs up and test one hind leg, by putting the paw upside down, they should automatically refex it to go forward in normal position. This will tell you if there is any spinal issues or is missing any feeling. You can also pinch the toes to see if he will pull back. If so these are good signs and he is likely just behind in developing.

    I was going to say maybe its because he pup is so young. I seen videos of puppy's who do that they are usually really young. I would definitely listen to some of the advice given to you. And wish u the best of luck.

    Welcome to the site and sorry I'm late, been a busy day at work today. He does sound like a swimmer and you have some great advise above to help him. I can not believe that the person who bred these pups let them go so soon, even if the mom would not take care of them, you still keep them until at least 8 weeks and they will still pick up things from mom and the other dogs if they have others dogs. He is a cutie of a pup and you have your work cut out for you. Just keep exercising those rear legs and he will be scampering along before you know it.
    Have a Great Bully Day.
