Hey guys, we've 2 Pyrs both rescue, Annie has 3 dewclaws on each hind leg, (looks kinda like a chicken claw lol) but these seem looser and floppier than Mac's normal 2. Since it's said they use them for extra stability and gripping, I am confused 'cause neither dog seems to have any voluntary control over movement of them. Since they are now indoor dogs with outside privileges I worry when they get playing and running that they are going to catch a claw in something and get hurt. How "bone-deep" are these dew claws attached? Annie has great dexterity and control of her front paws, she likes to lay on her back with her head in my lap and "hold my hand, she curls her paw around my hand and hangs on, (I can feel the muscle tension in the pads and watch her foot curl) then moves the hand to where she wants to be petted, when its just right she lets go and pats my hand in place. What a character who knows just what she wants and how to get it!!!
