Most every lacy I have seen still has them. I wouldn't worry about them unless they seem to be giving your dog problems. Good luck and welcome to the forum. :-BD

Mike, I agree with the others. Dew claws are usually removed when the pup is just a few days old.

I have seen lacys that have rear dew claws and they are usually just hanging there, loose, so to speak. The front dew claws are used. I feed my dogs raw meat instead of kibble. I sit and watch them eat. When they have a large piece of meat, they use those dew claws to help hold their meat. Perhaps they use them at other times that we dont see, I dont know.

Larry has had the covering (the nail part) of one of his dew claws ripped off. It looked awful, but didnt seem to bother him. The nail is growing back in like it should be. So, out of 3 dogs that are all over 5 years old that hunt frequently, one has ripped the dew claw.

At any rate, I would not worry about your dog having them at any age, but especially now.

Welcome to the forum!
