Do Huskys or German Shepherds have webbed feet?

We adopted a mixed girl last year, we noticed she has webbed feet. She looks part husky part German Shepherd. Do those breeds usually have webbed feet or must she have a water dog in her?

I don’t think it’s webbed, that’s a little different. Retrievers and setters have a very thin skin piece bridging their toes, where as huskies and other artic breeds have skin “flab” as I like to call it, with hair in between the toes. What you’re seeing is probably from the husky in her, they have large, thick skin connecting the toes because they were bred for harsh conditions and needed great grips on ice.

    I have a purebred German Sheppard and a Chocolate Lab. The sheppard has webbed paws, just like my lab & is actually a better swimmer than my water dog. Go figure.
