Pyr / Poodle / Lab cross

by David Clinton-Stroud
(Atlanta)

I just got a puppy Pyredoodle and her dew claws are very floppy. They aren’t like those of a regular Great Pyrenees I don’t think. They don’t seem to be attached by bone. I have read on several Pyredoodle breeders websites that they remove them a few days after birth but mine did not. I will have to wait until I have her spayed but should I go ahead and do it? She’s already caught one in a hedge and it bled profusely.

Dew Claws
by: Donna

You have a mix breed from a backyard breeder. Only purebreds or a full Pyr have two dewclaws/pad per dew claw on the hind leg. Ethical and reputable breeders never mix breeds.

The kind of dewclaws your dog has is a result of the mixed breeding.

Breeds are bred for a purpose. When people start mixing breeds, you don't know what you will get when they mature as far as characteristics.

Dewclaws should never be removed. They are there for a purpose. Kind of like our thumbs. Keep them trimmed and you should never have a problem. That said, if they do continue to get caught, you may have to have them, unfortunately, removed.

Enjoy your pup.

    Angel and Daisy came to us because someone did not do their research. They wanted dogs they could just let loose and expected them to hang around the home.
