Rear Dewclaws

Post by Sylvaen » Thu Mar 02, 2017 7:35 pm

Jasper X Vixen = some puppies had rear dewclaws (2/5 = 40%)
Sampo X Vega = some puppies had rear dewclaws (2/10 = 20%)
Xantho X Vala = no puppies had rear dewclaws (0/6 = 0%)
Xantho X Vixen = no puppies had rear dewclaws (0/5 = 0%)
Ninja X Zora = some puppies had rear dewclaws (5/10 = 50%)
Lupo X Zora = no puppies had rear dewclaws (0/12 = 0%)
Zente X Vega = some puppies had rear dewclaws (2/4 = 50%)
Nanuk X Ziva = no puppies had rear dewclaws (0/8 = 0%)
Zente X Zora = no puppies had rear dewclaws (0/8 = 0%)
Nanuk X Vega = some puppies had rear dewclaws (4/6 = 66.67%)
Nero X Ziva = no puppies had rear dewclaws (0/8 = 0%)
Gru X Aurora = some puppies had rear dewclaws (3/11 = 27.27%)
Nero X Nissa = no puppies had rear dewclaws (0/5 = 0%)
Oberon X Misty = no puppies had rear dewclaws (0/6 = 0%)
Ash X Vega = some puppies had rear dewclaws (4/8 = 50%) - one puppy had DOUBLE dewclaws!
Ash X Zelda = no puppies had rear dewclaws (0/9 = 0%)

For reference: Jasper & Vixen are the parents of Vega; Sampo & Vega are the parents of Vala; Ninja & Zora are the parents of Ziva. In the Jasper X Vixen litter, Vega was one of the puppies that did NOT have rear dewclaws but she clearly carries the gene. Based on the other results, I'd say that Ninja also carries the gene. :)

Thanks for this post. My vet recently pointed out that our Tamaskan has pads on her back feet. We did have to have a dew claw from one back leg surgically removed when we had her fixed. I didn't know that her back pads was anything unusual until the vet made a comment. It is comforting to see that this is a trait that does indeed occur in other Tamaskans.
