It could be a bone growth problem. sometimes its from nutrition like the forster dog Carley posted above. she actually didnt turn out that bad. our vet was pretty optimistic. Id sure love to see her again

AmandaBlue is an unknown quantity at this point
the same thing happend to my dog at about 5 months....I was feeding to high of protein food(timberwolf) I was told was the cause...At any rate changed to puppy food, and got some splints from the vet and some medical wrap(like they use on horses lower legs) put some cotton wrap around the legs and put on the splints and wrapped them fairly tight for about 2 weeks..Problem was solved..

I'm just curious as to why the vet did not advise you on what to do. If the vet told you what was wrong and didn't tell you what to do, it is time for a new vet.

It is not the pup being easty westy or having dwarfism causing that issue from what I see.

It may or may not be nutritional since you are only seeing it in one leg it may be a genetic defect.

Best thing is too talk to a good vet about what supplements to use to help and get the pup on a great food. because the pup is young, if it is a nutritional issue it can be helped.

What are you feeding the pup right now?

Another thing that won't fix this issue but will make the pup more comfortable walking is cutting the nails.
