Limping on back leg

My female JRT, Maris, cut open one of her rear footpads on July 4th of this year. The cut healed within a few weeks and she has continued to limp around (will not put that leg down) for 4 months! The cut is completely healed, and she only does it at certain speeds--i.e., she only limps when she is trotting very slowly or running quickly, but not in between. People have told me she has gotten into the "habit" of limping, but she only does it at certain speeds (maybe 30% of the time). Any insight? Thanks!
