Why has my shih tzu begun raising his feet in snow as if pain?

I have recently noticed my "Lucky" raising his feet in the snow as if he is in pain. What might be causing this as he never did it previously?


Thank you

My Feet Hurt

My shih tsu has the same problem. If it's in the single digits or even the teens, it's just too cold. If it's in the 20's or warmer, it's probably the salt burning his feet. My girls will also start shivering in this weather-even with 3 warm coats on. They just don't handle the cold, or the heat, like other dogs can.
