Hi & Welcome to the Forum from Flo and me Big Grin

Is there any incident you can think of that might have caused an injury?

I'm guessing not since you've checked the paws already. Rest might do the trick if it's a mild limp and see how it is after a couple of days, however, if it isn't any better after rest then I would suggest a vet visit to be sure there is nothing more serious than a sprain.

Hi & welcome.

Staffords generally are pretty bouncy & often twist or strain a shoulder or leg muscle.

However, if you have already rested him & the limp is getting worse i'd see a vet.

Hi from me too Smile

I'd go with the above, it's a few days and is getting worse I'd be popping to the vet to make sure. Unless, that is, he's charging round on it, in which case I'd try resting for a couple of days first to see if that helps.
