Dew Claws - Three

My male has 3 dew claws on his hind feet. Why? Will the extra see claw need removing for showing?

If your going to try to show in a confirmation class, I am afraid that is a serious fault and will hurt his chances, and possibly be a disqualification.

I don't think it could be repaired clean enough to get pass the judges. I have seen the pre-qualifying inspections. Very tough. I know that unlike other dogs, Pyrenees dew claws are part of the bone and should never be removed. However there are many other ways to show and compete. Good luck!
