Default Please help!!! Zack limping ;(

First of all, I take all responsibility for this. I think it was my fault. So basically I was out with Zack on a walk, I had the leash blocked (it's a leash that's retractable) and someone was passing by, and that person (she) walked up to Zack to pet him. I was standing about a meter away, and the leash was tight as it was still blocked. Then Zack tried to jump up on her, and since it was blocked he fell on his back, immediately after he started crying and limping... I feel so terrible!!!! ;( ;( ;( ;( He is so tired right now and wanting to sleep, etc ... I feel like it's my fault and I feel so terrible right now ;( I tried seeing his back leg to see if anything is wrong, but when I was checking it I saw nothing, and when I touched his leg around he didn't cry or anything like that, it's just that it's hard for him to walk... If it's not better by tomorrow we are taking him to the vet Please tell me something I can do right now... ;(

Could be nothing more than Zack landing wrong causing a bruise or sprain. Like mentioned if he is still limping tomorrow onlynyour vet will b e able to tell for sure.. Don't beat yourself up over it. Zack was just being a pup,,,

Rest him in the crate and see how he is tomorrow. He probably just pulled something.

The thing I'm most scared of is that he will stop liking me because everyone treats him nicely like let him go on their laps, give them treats for nothing and I must be the strict one that when he's doing something wrong I have to deal with it etc and I'm just afraid he won't trust me anymore ;(

Just rest him he should be fine. When my husky was a pup he ran full speed into a metal pole and his screams were like he was dying. 20 mins later he was fine like it never happened. And don't worry about Zack not liking you. They respect the "strict" human more as you give him boundaries and structure which our working breeds need.

The thing is for example when my brother comes into the house Zack is all happy and jumpy but when I come in all Zack does is waggle his tail and let me pat him...

Adam, I think Zack sees your other family members as his playmates. You are the one he respects and will bond to.

This is actually a good thing, because he respects you and does not respect your brother.

Wait until tomorrow and see if he is still limping.
