I just noticed that Toki only has dew claws on his front legs but not in the back. I read somewhere that some dogs don't even have dew claws. I called a few vets about removing them and most of them don't remove dew claws for dogs. I mean it doesn't bother me because I can't see it. But I know if it's not clipped it gets really sharp.

Default Dew Claws

I didn't have a choice with my Doberman because when I went to choose him he already had his tail docked and the dew claws removed, but then he's parents were proper show dogs and granparents had won cruft's so I think thats why he was done.

But then again a doberman looks really funny with a tail?

My dog had dew claws on the back, but they were almost like extra toes. they stuck out and it looked like a toe but it was soft and floppy so I had them removed when he was neutered. I was afraid as rambunctious as he is that he would get them caught on something and rip them off. They wrapped his paws in bandages and he chewed the bandages off after a few days. After that he didn't seem to notice they were gone. The only reason I did it though was because they stuck out. I wouldn't recommend someone do it if their dog has normal dew claws b/c it is not really necessary.
