The first thing you should do is get to an emergency room to make sure you have a simple sprain and not something more serious, like torn ligaments. If it is a sprain, most likely what will happen is an ace bandage and instructions to apply alternating hot and cold packs at certain intervals.

A puppy's leg may not be dislocated if you don't feel anything out of place and it looks normal, but it may still be injured. Your puppy may just have a sore muscle, but she may also have a broken bone or other damage. Take her to a veterinarian if she continues to limp.
