Hello! I'm new here.... We just adopted Fergie on September 16th and we LOVE him. He's settling in and starting to get along nicely with our 2yr old Mini Schnauzer, Fritz.
I did notice that he doesn't use his back right leg when walking fast or running, yet he uses it when he walks or runs up the stairs.
He does not appear to be in pain.
I will be calling the vet on Monday to make an appointment for him to be looked at.
Someone I know and trust said he may have a luxating patella- her pug/chi mix had Grade 3 patellar luxation and had surgery for it ($3000).
I'm just wondering if anyone here has experienced this with their Havanese or any other breed of dog. I'm in the "Try Not To Worry" phase before we get to the vet and thought I'd ask around on this forum.
Thanks so much! So glad to be here!
Liszy & Fergie
