Pug hates that their little paws are touched. Ideally, Pug breeders should make sure their Pug’s dew claws are removed. Dew claws are found on the side of the paw. Only the front paws have the dew claws. The reason being since these are mostly indoor pets and the fact that these nails hang on the side then there might be a possibility of it hooking onto blankets, carpet, cushions etc….this may cause the nail to rip, bleed and cause pain and injury.
