Dog favours left hind leg

Hello,
I have a 3 year old jack RussellxPug mix (also known as a jug) who has favoured her left hind leg since she was a puppy. She holds it up when she goes down stairs and when she uses the bathroom. I always just thought it was a weird habit of hers as the vet could never find anything wrong with her legs. Recently however, her left hind legs/hip looks like it's hanging outwards further than usual. Also, she won't walk on her hind legs but instead hops around, more prominently on the left side. Any idea what might be causing this? And if I should take her into the vet for further examination?
Thank you!

Sounds like it could be luxating patellas but only a vet can tell you for certain. My little terrier hops on her hind legs too because her knee caps slip out of their sockets.
