I had both of my dogs neutered at one year of age, they recovered quickly without complications. I personally would want another vet to check and give their opinion. Hope your puppy is soon well

Does he drag legs all the time? If not probably emotional. If he always drags them I would have the vet check that out. My Omar is melodramatic and plays to the crowd. He drags his legs, refuses to walk, limps etc when he gets a vaccine. Crazy dog.

It's good to hear Pushkin had fun running around with your friend's dogs. Shows when he's motivated he can indeed get up and go, what a relief!

Still just throwing out guesses (it's all I've got!). He may drag his rear legs at times because he's sore from some minimal nerve damage. (Ever had sciatica? The pain relief by changing positions can be partial or complete.) Nerves are pretty easy to damage and heal slowly, but it sounds like you're seeing progress, so hopefully it will continue until he's 100%. It's possible the position he was in on the surgical table created the issue. As for his leg dragging being emotional, I do know poodles are sensitive creatures, my own certainly is. And Pushkin's sure been through a lot in short order. Still, I'd want to rule out any physical causes to be on the safe side, as you're considering with perhaps a second opinion.

Do you have food puzzles or treat dispensing toys for him to play with at home? That might busy his mind and lift his spirits. Will he engage in interactive games with you, like hide-and-seek, or nose work games for him to sniff out hidden goodies? Again, good for the mind and the body, and your relationship. If he is emotionally stressed, establishing and keeping to a steady routine might help too. If he knows what to expect and can count on what's going to happen, he may feel more relaxed and secure. Still just throwing out random ideas, but I'll stop now.

It will be so good to hear when he's well and running with glee!

Went to another vet yesterday for a second opinion--of course, Pushkin was jumpy, hyper, playful, adorable, and appearing absolutely normal when at the office. I am beginning to believe this is emotional--because as soon as we got home he went back to his bed and could not be forced to stand or drink or do anything, including refusing to go out. Maybe he's afraid of us? I like Chagall's mom's idea of sticking with routine. We'll try that. He did go for the toy a few times--so there is definitely progress-and he ran upstairs after me to go to bed--huge progress!
We have our Family Dog Class this Saturday. Hopefully, they'll have some ideas and we'll have our perfect dog back :-). Again, thanks everyone and I'll update when changes. Planning follow-up with new vet in 1 week.

I think he is angry at you for taking his man jewels away!!!!!!!! Poor guy lost his identity. It took many trips back to the vet after Omar's neutering before he did not act up. He just hates her. Hahahaha.

Quick update to everyone who has helped with advice and support:
Pushkin is up and about, running, walking, happy and showing no sign of problem. I think--however funny--he was in fact scared that we were going to do something else to him. He is not yet eagerly following commands as he did before, and sleeping lots more than prior to procedure--but we'll take it--and we'll see what passage of time does to his energy and excitement. Hopefully, not a permanent hormonal change making him lazy :-( In any case, back to dog school tomorrow and hope for the best. HUGE THANKS TO EVERYONE!

I have to laugh... Right after Remington was neutered, he would check to make sure everything was still there... He would lay down on his side, and lift his leg and have a good long look. Every once in a while he will give it a lick then put his leg down.. He will still look and check out everything when I am done shaving him and look at me like "Mom you left my thing-a-ma-gigger right?!"
