A "dew claw", often pronounced "jew claw" is the fifth claw on a dogs paw which is much higher up the leg and was traditionally removed. Many mammals have such a vestigial digit.
Dew claws became well known after a play on words in a Borat (Sacha Baron Cohen) comedy skit.
"oh my god, your puppy has had it's Jew Claws removed, isn't that illegal in 2009?"
