Sketch got her “Achilles” tendon on her back leg severed tonight in the grain on a fluke deal. Got the hog. Fixing to make the 4 hour trek to my vet and he’s gonna try to do what he can for her. I have seen a few posts about this. Just want to know what yalls experience with it has been. Seems I’ve seen some mixed outcomes on here. My vet is as good as there is in my opinion, reason I’m making this drive, but even he gave it to me straight, it’s a shot in the dark. Fingers crossed, this dog is all I’ve got left and my simple life revolves around her most days.

I hate to hear that slim. You've had some bad luck with your dogs. I hate it for you bud. On the plus side, even if it isn't able to be repaired, there are more 3 legged working dogs out there than one might think. I knew old man in Louisiana once that ran deer dogs. His fastest dog was a 3 legged gyp according to him, and he was always a pretty straight up guy. A buddy of mine got mine old Yonder female and had to ha e her back leg amputated because of rupturing her Achilles. He was baying hogs solo with her the day after she came home from the vet. So it isn't a death sentence just an alteration. Plus she could still raise pups. Good luck!

There is a recent post about this. My best gyp cut hers back in March. Took her to 2 vets both said it wasn’t worth trying and I really wish I would’ve found somebody to work on it anyways. Good luck with your gyp.

Man I called every vet in the coastal bend area. Nobody would touch it for less than a grand and even then everybody said they’d rather not. I got suggested A&M or a Ortho specialist in San Antonio.i called Kurt Kainer out Of Weimar Texas who I’ve used for years. He told me no promises, but for $250 he would do all he could. I just left his office. He managed to find both ends and get it sewed back together. She’s got a cast for the next month and then some slow and serious rehab after, but we’re confident.
  If you are ever in need of a vet, and you can hold that dog on long enough to make it to Weimar Texas, you would be a fool to not call this man.

Slim I’ll keep that in mind. I really wished I’d kept trying as I lost including her and my other 2 older strike dogs since March. I’m starting all over basically. It’s been a rough go here lately.

Man I feel ya. Lost a 1.5 year old gyp that was set to be my best dog(puppy out of this sketch gyp) by years end, and another solid strike dog this year already. And now I’ve got this mess to deal with. When it rains, it pours around here

 There’s the hog that done it. 160 lbs maybe. Not even sure how it happened because I never heard them try him. Baying and shooting in the grain at night is pretty dang challenging.
Then we go put sketch up on the truck, kick rocky down again in a Mott and he goes up a little ways and starts barking on the brush line off the road. It’s a bunch of Indian grass so we rolled up thinking it was a hog laid up. Cut the buggy off and I get 2 steps off the road and I heard him. About a 3 ft rattle snake, some how he didn’t get rocky but it was damn close.

Her pride is hurt and she ain’t a fan of the cast. But she is on the mend

No sir. Reuben this is the gyp I bayed in Nixon that day we met. She goes back to some original tater blood from Monty Bennet and some leopard looking dogs out of Oklahoma(I got the dogs names, but never able to track down who actually owned the dogs) and a little bit of Mike Bolen’s blood.
