Hi catgirl. I have issues with my back and getting a puppy definitely gave me some days of more pain. There was a lot more of a need to bend, lift, get down on the floor, climb in and out of her expen, etc. That being said, I feel that every extra ache and pain was totally worth it to have my Molly. I am sure that you can come up with some creative ideas for caring for your puppy that will lessen the strain on your shoulder. As far as walking goes, I use the Walk In Sync harness. It has both a front and back clip option and is helpful to train your dog not to pull on leash. Good luck with your decision!
