He may have stumbled and dragged his foot causing the nail to wear down to the quick. But, you should take him somewhere that you can have a friend watch his gait to make sure he isn't dragging a foot for some reason such as early signs of dysplasia. When Pyrate got older, when he was tired he would drag one of his back feet. It just didn't flip over as fast as it should to walk properly and caused his nails to drag. I got him a bootie for that foot. He hated it but it did help his foot heal. I always tried to walk him on soft grass as he got older so it was easier on him. Hard surfaces seemed to wear his nails too much.
