    Default Help with turned out front foot (dog I am looking at taking over ownership)

    Hi guys, I am reaching out because I am worried about a dog I am thinking of taking in. She seem to have a foot turned outward and I am concerned that it will cause her problems... But I don't know. Can you tell me if this looks like it will heal or right it's self as she gets older? She is about 8 months now. Any help would be good... I don't want to take her in a become heartbroken and wallet broken if I can avoid it.

    It looks broken.... how does she do walking?

    My sister has a Pug with missing bones and he does fine, just always has a limp and is now 6 yrs old.

    I agree with @2BullyMama it looks like a missing joint or broken, but I am sure it is not something that will fix itself. It's likely either an injury or growth defect.

    Whether it will cause heartache and break you wallet, only an orthopedic vet will be able to tell you that. It looks like she is running in the outside picture so it may be something she can easily live with.

    Thank you for thinking about giving her a chance. Do the current owners have any knowledge about what is going on with her foot?

    I agree, it looks like it was either broken at one time or a birth defect. I would let a vet look at it. If she is not having problems yet, then she may never have a problem. She is a beauty though and bless you for wanting to take her in. She looks like a total sweetheart.

    Macks was the same way.. I just changed his food to Nutro Natural Lamb and brown rice dog food.. It got better after a while.


    Who wouldn't love that face???
