Breeder also recommended nairs surgery at same time. Thank you
    that is more than common having the next leg go as well. From what my vet said, often the other is already bad which caused them to favor it, putting too much weight on this leg and straining. They xrayed cuttys other knee when they did the surgery (this was my 2nd opinion so they didn't take the first set of X-rays) and thankfully for us that is not the case. Cutty is older as well (7) so we just don't allow for much fetch anymore to try and keep him from hurting himself again. Sad but soooo much better than the torture of surgery another time. The lock down was awful for him, he didn't understand why he couldn't player be with us in the rest of the house.

    Oh by the way, I LOVED watching this video!! What a handsome boy you have! Too bad he isn't more spoiled tho. love the maze!

    Thanks Cali~Jenn, we were trying to figure out the cause. Unfortunately we noticed sympton(raised leg) after he went and played outside (iced snow), felt bad b/c he really has a blast running through and eating snow. Dont know if freak accident or hereditary cause siblings havent had issue, Bode is so young.

    Cutty was the same, came out of nowhere and couldn't use his leg at all for a few days, then learned how to walk like he had crutches before starting to use it again a little. The leg lift when he ate was my only clue it was more than a twist or sprain cuz he went back to using it pretty quickly. Was also my clue when his surgery was really healed when he stopped lifting it during meals. In our case it wasn't genetics. His breeder said she hadnt had an acl issue since like 20 years before.

    Bode is beautiful! He looks like he was having such a great time playing in the snow. Unfortunately, snow and ice can cause injuries in doggies as well as humans. I do hope he gets well soon so he can get back to play time.

    Ace's surgeon told us that it was a 50/50 chance that he'd blow the other leg out and he did 1.5 years later. Not sure what the 'notch' in the bone surgery is if that's the TPLO they're talking about or not. It's an incredible surgery and Ace was like wonder dog when he recovered. That surgery is an extensive recovery though 4-6 months full due to the plate and screws inserted into bone and the bone is rotated. Let us know what they say. I'd really like to follow this. Ace tore his out by running after a basketball. He had one speed, rocket speed, and was hard on his legs.

    Hi there - I also had a bully that had not one, but two ACL repairs - one at 10 months and one at 20 months.

    It's good you are getting a second opinion and consulting a specialist, who has performed the procedure many, many times. It's a rough go and it's not cheap but the good news is that the prognosis is excellent. My bully that tore both ACLs lived until the end of his days running and moving comfortably on his repaired knees.

    If you have any specific questions before or after your appointment, please feel free to message or tag me! I am happy to share any advice and experiences. Hang in there - your baby will be just fine, though I know it's not easy!

    Hi Rick!

    Your boy Bode is such a cutie. Loved watching the video of him enjoying his snow trail. I hope everything will go well and smoothly w/Bode's vet appt. and subsequent possible surgery. You have a lot of support on this forum.

    Hello Rick .... welcome to you and Bode.

    I have experience with the torn ACL... twice. Our boy, Nitshcke tore his and two months after repair the replacement snapped. What we did was cleared a bedroom of furniture, placed a mattress on the floor and took turns sleeping with him. We baby gated the door so he could move around , but no jumping running or stairs for 6 months (yes, months because he snapped the repair). Everything was great after about 8 weeks... then he started limping again.

    let me know if you have any specific questions and I will hopefully be able to help

    Hi @2BullyMama, We have been reading and accepting all advice on this pending surgery. Currently Bode's set up is a 12x6 play area that he stays in and usually goes in and out of on his own. We let him free roam the house when we're home. He's kinda funny at times b/c he will put himself to bed if we don't. So he is very comfortable in his area.
