Okay so Im playing with Baxter - extremely careful of his leg situation (some of you may remember the video I showed from the breeder).
He's totally fine now walking-wise, etc. All is well.
But im playing with him, and - very gently - he got into a strange position as I rolled him over, and his leg literally popped out of place, and I immediately repositioned it, and heard it pop again back!
He didn't even wince. But I swear it seemed like his leg got dislocated for a second there, and I was totally and completely freaked out. Have any of you seen / heard anything like this??
I have seen X Rays of EB puppies and noticed that the socket isn't always even fully "Locked in" like our legs are to our hips.
But that was just plain strange / scary. I stood him up carefully to see if he'd fall over and all was perfectly well. But geez.. how fragile !!! Scared the crap out of me.
Oh Geez that would totally freak me out. Sorry I'm of no help, as I have never heard of that happening. Just wanted to say hoping and praying its nothing serious. Sending hugs and prayers. Hopefully someone with experience will come along soon. Keep,us posted.
LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.
This is not normal unfortunately. I would have X-rays done on his hips to make sure there is no underlying reason this happened.

Yah their pain tolerance is amazing. Fergus is constantly running into things. His brakes don't work too well

RIP beloved boy.
Wow... I have seen that in humans but never a pup unless there was an underlying problem. I hope you are able to get the situation sorted out for Baxter.
Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.
I'm no help w this one. I've never experienced it. I would def call the vet tho, if nothing else but for peace of mind. Really glad he is ok now tho!
I Googled "dislocated leg in Puppy" there's a ton of stuff, some sites say it's not uncommon , and some tell you how it can be fixed.
Life is like a box of chocolate covered
Don't think that is normal at all. I would run to the vet. It would have been the first thing I did upon picking up the pup in light of the video. Not sure what type of guarantee you got or if there were any stipulations about taking the pup to the vet within x amount of hours of receipt. Hope everything works out at the vets.
Always in my heart and never far from my thoughts. See you at the rainbow bridge my sweet little Monkey. R.I.P. Raven.
