This sounds like what happened to our 2 yr old rescue... she was diagnosed with Lyme disease and required a month long course of antibiotics. Her front shoulders were alternatingly warm and tender and she cried every time she tried getting up; had to mix her kibble with canned food and sit with her to eat.

our shepherd had the same problem he was a runt and cried or yelped everytime he stood up or tried to stand from a sitting position. it took time and xrays to verify nothing was broken and we put him on joint vitamins and iams dog food which had the rice content and over a 6 month time of this and small walks a couple times a day hes strong and healthy and no more pain. hes almost two now. hope this helps

Don't wait for guesses CALL your VET NOW. If a 1 year old German Shepherd is acting lethargic and in noticeable pain for days it is not normal.

If he has something like an intestinal blockage due to twisting the clock is ticking. Only a vet can diagnose something like this with an X-ray.
