    Default Dewclaws?

    I was painting Lola's nails today and I noticed she has dewclaws in the front. Is this normal? I feel awful for just now noticing

    I thought the same thing about my girl, Punkie Dewclaws? Aren't they supposed to be removed? Our vet said they don't remove dewclaws on Bulldogs. My Boxer had hers removed so I asked the vet what the determining factors are for removal. He explained that Bulldogs are not sporting dogs and they don't need them removed because they probably will never be out in the woods hunting and running so their dewclaws aren't at risk for being torn or ripped off while running in overgrown vegetation. The only way my Bullie would be out in the wood running around is if she was running after me...she is my shadow! On the other hand, Maggie the Boxer...she would love to be running in the woods after rabbits and squirrels! LOL

    We would have them removed from our pugs due to the bulge in the eye and the high probability of scratching their eyeballs. I am contemplating having Arwen's removed when she is fixed, even though I doubt she would scratch her eyeball, since she'll be under & I can get 2 birds and all.

    Just remember that 98.34% of all people will make up statistics 86.27% of the time that lean towards their own opinion by at least 51%. Of course I'm not 100% sure about that...

    Yes my vet also said in bulldogs they dont remove them. I didnt know any better cuz my pug came with his removed already so I thought maybe it was common? I didnt know the reason tho so thanks @Donna LeBlanc
