dog injuries?

Is it possible that dogs can pull there hamstrings?
Took my dog to play at the beach. His first time ever. We played fetch in the sand and the water. He was having a blast. He is the type of dog to play fetch with you till your arm falls off, even if he breaks his legs.
I noticed when we finished he kept licking his paws And limped a little. Usually when I check is because there's a cut or something is stuck. Checked his paw and squeaky clean.
Got in the car and drove the hour back home. He was spelling, so when he woke up and went to stand up, a loud yelp came out. He walked it off just fine. Everyday since then he has had a limp on his left rear leg. He walks and jogs just fine. But I.noticed he did not want to jump up anymore so I went to pick him up from his front legs, leaving all the pressure on the rear legs and boom! The yelp again and favored the left leg. So I sat him down and massaged his left leg to try and find where it hurts, but nothing..I pulled his leg to stretch it and no pain.
Next day went to play fetch. And as soon as he sprinted the yelp came out. But still ran, and you could see his left leg flared out, as in running but lightly stepping with that leg. Took him to the vet. They said he was fine. Came home. Same exact pain. Haven't done xrays because I'm saving the money for them, I will take him in for sure.
I pulled my hamstring just yesterday. Horrible pain but I can manage, wondering if he possibly did the same. Sand is hard to run in and could he have possibly tried so hard that he pulled a muscle?

yes, its possible, but could be an ACL tear or even just a sprain. Those happen a LOT active pups, especially if they turn quick or jump around. You can try strict crate rest, no movement or play, only leashed potty breaks. My boy had a bad sprain and it took about 6 months to heal because I didn't listen and thought he was good after a few weeks because he was not limping and he would go out and re injure it again. I would see if it gets better but an ACL tear is not something to be ignored and if you notice it not getting better I would take him in to be looked at.

You probably are right on the money Ames. It's been almost 2 weeks and its looks maybe a few percentage numbers better but hasn't changed a whole bunch. He loves his crate so as soon as we walk in the house he goes right in. We work long morning shifts so he has to stay outside. But deff limit his activity and have him reduce any weight on it. Thank you so much. I'll probably take him in this weekend, and hope its just a srain. Highly doubt it

An ACL has to be re-attached. Painful, long and costly process?
It sucks because it often results in the joint becoming arthritic over time.
Theirs A couple re-attachment procedures used. Basic, not so basic, complex.
I can't remember the names of them just the process.
They suck for both the owner and the dog.
