Dog paws come in different shapes – cat feet, webbed feet and hare feet. Cat feet are round and compact with a short third digital bone. The toes are arched, provide a firm base with maximum support, and give the dog a stronger grip when walking, especially on wet, slippery surfaces. These paws are designed to increase the dog’s endurance and require less energy to lift off the ground. Breeds that have cat feet include the Akita, Standard Schnauzer, Tibetan Mastiff and Doberman Pinscher.

Hare feet are elongated with the two center toes longer than the ones on each side of the paw. More energy is needed to move hare feet, but this foot design increases a dog’s speed and is perfect for sprinting. Breeds with hare feet include the Greyhound, Whippet and Pharaoh Hound.

Webbed feet help with swimming and are found in breeds bred to work in water, like the Labrador Retriever and Newfoundland.
