Does anyone have any experience or advice about amputations in Bassets? My 6 yr old Basset/Beagle was just diagnosed with synovial cancer in his back leg. Xrays show that it hasn't spread to his abdomin or lungs. I had a three legged Husky in the past and she did just fine. He is just a hair taller than my other Bassets, but he's still pretty low to the ground. He's an otherwise healthy boy. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Since it's in the back end I don't think there'd be much of a problem. Front end would be more of a concern, since that's where most of the weight is carried.

Especially since he's a mix, I'm guessing he's lighter than the average Basset (if not you probably need to put him on a diet). I'd say go for it.
