    It must be a bully thing. Einstein drags his front feet too. He does it so bad that one day while we were out for our walk his one nail started bleeding because it wore down that far! I asked the vet what to do and he said either stop walking him on the cement or get him some shoes. Since I know Einstein would never let me put shoes on him, we now alternate our walking location to the field behind our house and the sidewalk in our housing addition.

    I'm taking Wilson to the vet this Friday for his left front foot. He's been limping off and on for a few weeks now but sometimes it was barely noticeable, until this past weekend. I almost thought it was his hip but last night he was clearly limping on the front left and then this morning he held his paw up when he was sitting in the kitchen. . My neighbor told me last month that his friend has a bully and that bully's are prone to fractures due to them being so loose jointed. Has any one else ever heard that? I'll report back on Friday too.

    @JeannieCO how old is Wilson? Honestly, I am not sure what the issue could be, but having been through this (and still going through it with Gator), I can offer my sympathy. I hope they can see what the problem is in x-ray. Gator's all came up normal (all 12 of them) and we still don't know the problem. Please keep me posted and pm me if you have questions on anything the vet might say.

    Wilson is now 8 months. 12 x-rays yowza! He can still walk and heck even run when he wants to, but he does seem have slowed that down a bit when playing with Jack and has been favoring it with a clear limp. I'm going to assist him down the stairs now just to be safe. It doesn't seem to bother him too much so I'm not sure what it is. I did give him a baby aspirin this morning and he seems better now so maybe it's just inflamed?

    Yeah no kiddin'. And I know about dogs growing too fast after our episode last month with Jack, sure would hate to go through that again but I'm 100% sure that's not it. When I posted this thread I did it with reason, he's really really floppy in the front (could be normal for him who knows) . It's never ending that's for sure.

    @JeannieCO..exact same age as Jake..he'll be 8 months on the 29th.I was watching Jake today when he was bully rushing around the yard..and I didn't notice the floppiness! I do see where he drags his right rear foot just a tad in a normal walk. I sure hope it's just inflamed...will be watching for an update!

    No floppy paws here. But I did notice that Mr. Wilson walks a little sideways. You know like he needs a wheel alignment. Like if you were to watch him from above he is like a slash /. LOL

    Gator does all of those things....floppy front feet (the left is the worst) and he walks/runs at an angle. The ortho thinks his limp is more of a "weakness" I tried to tell him that those things are very common in bulldogs. I have decided not to get the MRI as he is walking/running normally now and even was able to play fetch with his ball in the yard last night.
