I had something similar happen when Quincy was a puppy. He was 16 weeks when we got him and he jumped up on one of those old style metal lawn chairs out in the yard and when he went to jump down he got his dew claw stuck and was yelping. I looked over and he was hanging by his dew claw from the lawn chair. It was horrible. When I took him in for his neuter,I had those darn dew claws removed at the same time. The dew claws took longer to heal then the neuter,but I am still glad I had it done.
Of course though---I am not used to dog breeds that keep a dew claw on. All dogs I have ever owned had them removed as tiny pups. Their are many who see an advantage to keeping the dew claws,but for me....after Quincy's hanging on a lawn chair,I didn't see any advantages anymore.
