My vet recently told me of an elderly basset who had a pathological fracture of the femur and because the bone just shattered it wasn't repairable. However because of her size and weight they didn't feel she would be able to walk on three legs following an amputation and subsquently was euthanized. :(

I think a lighter boned basset would have an easier time adjusting to 3 legs.

Sorry you are having to face such a difficult decision. :(
