My friends bitch has just had a litter of two THL and 2 PP's. The two THL pups have dew claws on their back feet. Would this be classed as a fault for showing in the U.K. ?

Holy cow, I don't think I have ever heard of cresteds having rear dew claws. If it were me, I would have them removed and sell those puppies as pets as that isn't really something I would want to keep breeding into my dogs.

We had a mill rescue come through the rescue with dew claws.  Now that you mention it, I don't ever recall seeing any Cresties with hind dew claws.

 

It seems they are becoming more and more common in many breeds, I wonder why that is - other than an obvious answer that people are using less and less discrimination when breeding...

ET's rescue, Tucker, a puff, has them.  Bad enough to have to trim the front ones, but back ones too?  It's bad and he chews at them.

I have heard of other puff owners say theirs had all 4 dews.  Weird.

Well I wonder why it was just the two THL that had them and not the PP's as well ?

I had to run to look at Chanelly's feet to imagine her back ones with dew claws.  I can not even imagine where they would be.  I would be curious to see a photo.

They're in the same spot as the front... on the inside above the hock (or right around it).

Abby has back and front dew claws.  She's a HHL  I wish they were not there, the nails grow circular, very hard to cut.

I HATE dewclaws!!!!  Niles doesn't have them, but Vegas does and he is horrible having his nails cut.  I have never heard of a crested with rear dewclaws before.  I would hope she removes them and pets those puppies out.

 

Jean, I will have to check Abby's when you come down for the meetup!

I despise dew claw as well! None of mine have rear ones, thankfully. A couple of mine have the front, and a couple of them were removed a few days after birth by their breeders. So much easier not having to deal with them.

 

Besides being so hard to cut, they also get stuck in blankets from time to time when the dogs play. Ruby once had a dew claw get stuck in the weave of a blanket, and it ripped her entire nail out! A very painful, and bloody injury. Of course in time, it grew back.

Hehe, I'll bring my nail clippers and you can help cut or hold her.  I've often wondered if Abby has some chihuahua in her, when she's wet, the shape of her head reminds me of one.

Huh? Trixie has four and one on her hind leg is, well, I think it is just flesh with a deformed nail on it. It curls in a circle very quickly so I have to make sure I keep it trimmed. You can't see them because of her hair but they are a huge pain to care for. We call the weird one her "noodle toe"

I  am getting a hl male puppy soon. If he has dew claws in the front, should I have them removed when he is getting neutered? I do know it seems so much more comfortable for my little Yorkies without them.
