    Oh, poor guy! I'm not sure what to do, but I bet if you search "Broken toe" in the box on the upper right of the screen you will find some threads. Good luck!

    If he can't stand are you sure it is just a broken toe??, it may be something else as I am sure he struggled quite a bit hanging there. give him a good once over just in case. If it just a toe you may be able to splint it, or I would just find some thin strong piece of plastic and tape his whole foot, he will walk around better.
