Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
Most likely this is a hereditary condition common in these small breeds. It may be a premature closure of the distal ulnar physis causing deviations of the affected leg. This will require surgery to repair by a Veterinary Orthopedic Doctor and prices of this procedure vary with the vet and location. Since your young sweety is so young, this procedure would eb curative and give your sweety a long and happy life. There are other hereditary issues that can cause this that the specialist will discuss with you if this in not the distal ulnar physis.
Does that make sense to you?
