like the feet are bending the wrong way? Vet is the only option, it could be that he can't feel his feet- you know like if you sit on your legs long enough your feet fall past asleep and you stand up and squish your toes cause you can't tell where they are? in that case it could be a pinched nerve or something else neurological.

Take Kendalle advise, only vets could examine and give medical advice for that case.

It could be a dislocated knee. I had a dog go through this...and actually got him through it without surgery. But, that's how he walked, where he was actually rubbing the top of his foot on the ground. A vet can easily determine if this is the case.
