Shot this 6:17am, 8-31-12, found it had a shorter deformed back leg, no foot, just a stub with a pad on the end, like on the bottom of a regular paw, it was a young pup around 20-30 lbs.

Could it have been a healed over wound, as from a trap? I've seen a couple of dogs caught in a fence, as they tried to jump it and hung a back leg. Could this have been the case and he simply chewed it off to free himself? Was the bottom truly "pad" material? Or simply a healed over wound callused over like the knees of a goat with sore hooves/feet? Sorry, I've got more questions than answers.

It was a pad just like on a regular foot, I though of an injury too, but it def is a pad, has the same formation as a main pad on the bottom of any K-9 foot.

probably a trap

Looks just like a deformed leg/foot to me . If he would have chewed his foot off cause of a trap it would have just healed over with skin and fur on it in my opinion .

i seen them this way it from a trap if it low down where the can still walk on it causes it to pretty much turn in to a reg foot pad after it heals and wears the fur back off

This pup was only around 4 months old, don't think a pad would have grown that fast after healing from an injury. It would have be still mending.

Ron Did they have a pad replace the end of the injury like this? Like Heath said it would have healed over with skin and hair, wouldn't think it would grow a pad, I have seen apputies and they didn't have a pad like this one, really it was just like as if it was a regular foot, just no toes/claws, and a single pad with the same build as a regular pad, it even had the texture and 'give' of a pad that you could stroke and rough like a dogs pad.
BTW we have a lot of coyotes here and most likely a lot of inbreading too.
