A "friend" just gave us a 5 month old male yorkie, and told us he had a ouble jointed rear leg. Now that we have him, he seems to have 3 bad legs. Sometimes, he drags, them a bit, or lifts them, and his left front elbow seems to protrude out when he bears weight. What do I do. He's just the sweetest thing, but he's really pitiful!

Maybe surgery can correct the leg problems. Consult your vet.

Sounds like a trip to the vet is in order. Additionally, you might try Missing Link Plus supplement in his food. It is a broad spectram superfood supplement with added ingredients for joint support. I have had very good luck with it.
