Two days ago my cockapoo Archie suffered a torn ACL after jumping down too many stairs in pursuit of another dog. We brought him to the vet and they told us that it is just a matter of time until the other hind leg goes as well, and told us how expensive both surgeries would be. Archie is only 4 years old and we don't know what to do about it because we cannot afford the expensive surgery, and my parents are even considering adoption. While he could drive us all crazy due to his lack of training and anxious nature, he would surely be missed and we would like to avoid that route if possible. Has anyone else had a similar experience? If so, what was the alternative for surgery? I appreciate any and all responses.
