He should do fine with other dogs.
When a dog becomes ill, weak, disabled, etc. it's a "natural order" for the pack (in the wild) to rid themselves of the weak member. The pack is only as strong as it's weakest link... Usually when something happens to a dog, it's scent changes. As dogs get older, they smell different, infections have an odor to them, open wounds smell like fresh blood, etc. That's usually what triggers this type of behavior.
But this little guy, although disabled, will be fine. He won't have an odor of illness, and I'm sure he will get around just fine without one paw. He may not be able to play as rough as some of the other dogs, but they won't see that as a sign of weakness, rather as a personality trait.
