What are your thoughts on dewclaws? Leave 'em or remove 'em? Criteria and justifications?
I think we're going to get the rear dewclaws on our new lab (now officially christened "Maggie") removed as they are non-functional (loose & floppy). The fronts are functional, so we'll leave them. Too bad the shelter performed the spay before we got the dog as it would have been easier to have our own vet do both procedures at the same time.
