I have a six month old boxer puppy, show potential. Breeder likes the way she has developed, however, about 4 weeks ago, she broke a toe on one of her hind feet, and it has not healed at all. I took her to the vet when it happened, and was told it should heal up just fine, but after 4 weeks this is not the case. The vet is now advising to amputate the toe..What I would like to know is if there is anyone that has had a similiar situation and still tried at least to show their dog. The vet is willing to provide a letter stating that this was due to an injury and not a defect of any kind. I just do not know how this will affect things in a show ring, or if I should just not bother...Either way, she will be staying with me, she is a loving and adorable little girl, and having one less toe will not change that.
