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.
