My son bought a good blooded pup to train for our Duck hunting trips. At about 4 months he ran over the pup crushed his pelvis (1 back leg just hangs). Vet said He'd never hunt. The dog was pitiful! I thought about putting him down.
The dog has wound up at my house now & after running around, rough housing with my Boxer he is like a different dog. He's about 10 - 11 Months old. I started throwing a dummy a few weeks ago & he HAS THE DRIVE. I took him to a pond a few days ago & he swims & retrieves in the water.
Has anybody seen or heard of a 3 legged retriever working out? I don't want to do anything but hunt him. The Vet seemed to think it would be cruel to hunt him, but after working him a while he thinks he's being abused when you stop.
