Dog wanting to mate... or serious problem?

October 5th, 2005, 09:02 AM

I have a 4 month old male lab mix puppy..

The past couple of days a strange thing has been happening... I'm not really sure how to describe it..

Every once and awhile he seems to lose the coordination in his back legs and has to sit down.... and I've noticed that every time this happens, his penis comes out of that fold of skin... I'm wondering if he is just wanting to mate (we are getting him neutered in 2 months... should we do this sooner?).. or if this is a sign of a serious problem...

Any insight would be great.

This dog has a seriour problem and needs to be seen by a vet asap. Your 4 month old puppy should not be losing function of his legs.

Please do report back. I am very worried about his back legs. Do you know what the "mix" is with the Lab?

Yes, I hope this doggy is ok.. I hope it's not his hips or a problem with his nervous system... :fingerscr :fingerscr
