This disease is post rabies induced. The results are sluffing off the pads of the feet. Making it diffacult for the dog to walk. The reason for the search is to find others with this disease. I do have conact with one dog owner with this problem. It is to help others. It has to do with the dog having a very low immune system. My corgi that had this ended up with cancer at 6. I had to have her put to sleep last week.
