Matt, I am interested in what happens to Charlie as my dog, Fancy may have the same problem. She jumped out of our truck while we were driving down the highway and is badly injured. She is in the hospital now and will see the neurologist tomorrow morning. Her front paw was badly cut and since she wants to curl it back, the vet is worried about nerve damage. He did mention fusion so that the paw is always in the right position, and she can walk, but will not be able to run. I'm hoping that something can be done other than amputation. She weighs 125 pounds and I'm afraid that if they amputate her front leg she will be falling forward all the time.

Good luck with Charlie and keep posting to let us know how he does.
