Sky's a cutie. As long as he seems to be happy, don't worry about him. He's just a very laid-back pup.

Awww Sky is a very pretty doggy. It sounds like he gets lots of love and attention. As long as he enjoys doing his own thing I dont think it matters that he is not like other dogs!

What a gorgeous dog! I hope you and Sky have many happy and healthy years together! My little girl, Daphne also chews her paws, especially her nails. Kisses and lots of biscuits to you Sky!

What a handsome boy Sky is!! He looks pretty darn happy to me. I had a Lhasa that also had a "foot fetish", and other than that he was a great little guy. It used to drive me crazy when he would constantly lick and bite at his feet but I learned to live with it. If he could tolerate my habits then I could tolerate his! :-)
Many more years of happiness and adventures to Sky and his family.

I have a Pug is is an obsessive paw licker, but he came to me from an unhappy situation. He is a happy dog and I believe Sky is okay, too. He is a gorgeous dog and many hugs and kisses to him.

Sky is just beautiful! And to be honest, I love dogs with attitude... Beautiful coat, beautiful smile!!! Hope you share many memories with this pup!

His coloring is so pretty!
My doggy also licks his paws excessively. I'm not sure whether it's the cause or the result of the licking, but he has an ongoing bacterial infection between his paw pads. Many pills every day. Hopefully yours just enjoys the taste.

Pretty Sky!

wow! he has really cool eyes. it's like his eyes are a mix too. : ) he's cute.

Great looking dog, love his markings. Just wanted to add our friend has a lab who started licking his feet, turned out to be a yest infection. Antibiotics cleared it up.
Enjoy many years with Sky.

What a great mix!

My dog Jack used to chew his paws too, but his got so bad he would hurt himself, so we brought him to the vet and the vet had us see a doggie dermatologist/allergist, and he is so much better now!

Hey... my dog chews on her paws too, for hoooouuuurrs. But I think I would rather her chew on her paws then the alternative (which she is known to do also from time to time!)

I like Sky's crazy coloring.

Sky's markings are beautiful! And just to throw in another paw licking dog mulberry used to lick his paws excessively for hours. The vet said that same thing- that it might just be an allergy. He still licks his paws but he's also moved on to licking my hands excessively!

He's sooo handsome. Love his coloring. And I suppose the paws are better than eating the furniture like my sweet coon hound boy does. ( He's getting much better as he grows up,though.) Intact sofas are over rated, as one dog lover on this site pointed out...

Sky--what a good-looking guy!

I can't get rid of the Vonage left side column ad and so I'm trying to read and figure out from the comments I can read what Sky's story is. He DEFINITELY has an allergy re: chewing his paws. Find another vet because he shouldn't have to live with this condition. I speak from experience. Have you noticed it's seasonal? Don't let the vet talk you out of it.... go online and try to research it yourself in the meantime. Try the Cornell Vet School website for openers. Don't mean to pontificate, but if Sky likes to watch the world "go buy" that's great. Taking time to smell the roses! There goes that allergy thing again. Sky, you're gorgeous..... love those blue eyes of yours and bet that's how you got your name.

I agree that it sounds like your gorgeous pup's feet should be checked for infection or allergies! I recently rescued a sheltie mix who chews her paws all the time. I started giving her Benadryl (one pill, 2x a day) and that helped a lot. If you can buy from Costco, you can get their version of Benadryl for less than a penny a pill. My vet said to give my pooches one pill per 25 lbs. body weight 2x a day. I have 2 pit bulls and a shepherd mix who also have allergies. I live in the rainforest and it's very humid and wet, so allergies are a big issue! The paw-licking is sometimes a nervous habit, but best to get a second professional opinion on it, and if your vet agrees, try the Benadryl (diphenhydramine --make sure nothing else is added).

Well I hope his paws are better. I've heard that it could be an allergy and also a nervous habit...but you do what you think is best for him. :) Love this picture! :) Have lots of fun Sky! :D

his eyes are a bit creepy. but the rest of him is pretty.[ :
Jul 16, 2008 mylolove
aww soo beautiful. I'm not sure he is a dalmation mix, he might be a pure bred blue merle aussie. Lots of aussies have those cute freckles ;]

I don't know....there is something about this dog that just screams terror......

My australian shepard/dalmation mix is 16 and chews her paws,legs. Vet put her on sweet potatoe kibble. Snacks are potatoe skins and carrots. She does better and I really did have to cut outother food! Sky is cool!

I too have an Aussie/Dalmation mix, looks almost just like Sky! Look for my Daisy on my profile. She's quite a handful at 6 months old. She too has a thing about licking her paws or my feet all the time. My Daisy's favorite toy is an old pair of jeans that I braided into about 100 braids. Its the only toy that seems to survive her chewing!
May 17, 2010 marlenetski
how in the world did you begin to control him! I have an Aussie/Dal mix and she is just *sigh* a handfull. Any suggestions greatly appreciated! BTW..Sky and my Daisy could be twins! Eyes and all!

My puppy could be sky's body double. They look so much alike that it is scary!
Jun 14, 2011 marlenetski
I swear Sky could be a brother of my Daisy. She's an Aussie/Dalmation mix too! Such a pretty boy!
