sounds like luxating patella and the patella is popping out so he holds it up then when it gets back in place he walks on it - another thing is acl injury

I try to prevent this type of injury by lifting my dogs on or off the bed/couch. They know to bark when they want down, if the steps aren't in place.

again it does sound like LP to me. i would go see a vet about this, it could get more serious and as a rule of thumb, a dog should never jump off any surface that it cannot initially jump up onto the begin with. jumping off things that are too high like a bed or couch can cause LP to show up and happen more frequently than dogs that don't jump off high surfaces.
