I have seen them in smaller breeds, but haven't seen them in larger breeds that I have been close with. Not to say it doesn't happen, but I'm not sure.

A lot of the larger breed dogs have rear dewclaws, some of those are the ones that get the double set or the polydactylism trait.

no that isn't the dew claw this is , it would be on the side of the foot about two inches or less up from the bottom of the foot, these are removed in working breeds because they can get ripped off, in most pets they are not removed, although some breeders remove this because it makes the leg neater, if there is bone in it then its less likely to be caught on anything but if its just tissue and nail then i would get it removed but its up to you, spaying is the best time to get it done because it means you dog only has to go through one anaesthetic, just make sure if you dog does have these then remember to clip them as they dont wear down

I hope this helps

Nedim,
Look at your dogs foot where I have the arrow.
Is there a scar or a little bit of missing hair?

From your picture, although it is hard to tell how the dog is laying, I believe this is where the dewclaw should have been.
I think this picture is of the left front foot.....?

Skye is a sheltie, he has his dew claws, and he's never had a problem. Personally, I wouldn't have them removed. It seems kind of unnecessary.
