My aunt likes Pure Paws for her Maltese. But I think Bio-Groom (the one Romy mentioned) is the same type of product. Both are waterless shampoos.

It's said the staining can come from saliva if the dog is a paw-licker. But that's not likely the culprit unless the dog also has stains around lighter-colored or white hair around their mouth. If just on paws it's probably from staining mud or lots of iron runoff from rainwater washing over high iron-content rocks.

Wow I didn't even notice that anyone had responded to this until now lol. Devan, I'm not sure what is causing the pink staining that his paws seem to have right now, but he does occasionally pee on his paws when he lifts his leg on a tree... mainly what's bothering me is why are his white paws turning peachy pink in color?

I'm going to try some of the suggestions mentioned. thanks so much guys.

Anna's back feet have pink color on them, too, and I can't figure out why

Ares feet used to turn pink from him licking and chewing on them. Lately though they haven't been getting stained, which is more confusing. The vet thinks he's not licking (as in his allergies are better). I have to keep telling her that he is chewing, just for some reason his feet aren't turning pink.

Bamm chews on his paws sometimes... that must be why they're turning pink

One thing that I was thinking too, is if their drinking water is high in iron, you will have rust colored staining between the toes and on the bottoms of the feet. Dogs sweat from their feet and the high iron in the drinking water comes out when their feet sweat. I have a friend that shows Springers and she had this problem. She switched to bottled water and the problem went away.
