last night my 5 month old boston terrier fell of the couch. she immediately started crying. i comforted her and felt the leg, no obvious breaks. i can pull down on the leg but she is holding it up....i am taking her to the vets as soon as they open today......can this be a sprain or could it be broke and i just can't tell where???

It could be sprained or just bruised, i think the best thing is to take her to the vet to be sure. Our dog Jake did much the same thing and it was just bruising and a slight sprain. Our vet said just to leave it for 2 days and if he wasnt putting the foot down to bring him back for xrays luckily for all of us he was walking on it the next day, i hope shes alright, goodluck
