Extra claw on back feet?

Okay, so I have just rescued a puppy possible cocker spaniel mix. Anyways, while I was taking pictures, I noticed she had extra limbs on her back paws and I've never seen this before by any puppy I have ever had. Even with Kryesor. Anyways, I tried to take pictures of it and they didn't turn out so good, but maybe you guys can explain this to me and is it bad? Thanks

It looks like that and I knwo it's hard to see because she is all black. Not black, jet black!!? But yeah it kind of looks like that picture there. Here is a better view.



Is that better?

Double dew claw! Just make sure you keep them short if you're not going to remove them so that they don't get caught on anything.

Ha ha ha. That is all funny. They do make her look refined, but again when I take her to the vet, I'll ask if it's okay to leave them. Thanks guys. Thumbalina, that's a good one.

Thanks guys.
