Dog Bootie Pattern for Those little Paws

Dog Bootie pattern for those little paws.

Many Friends , Family and Customers have been asking for Dog Booties or dog bootie crochet pattrns. Not boots, but little booties to keep their little paws warm in the house on winter days.  I thought a lot about it, and took a good look at my dogs paws.....

Maximo, his paws and his booties.

Maximo has very tiny paws, ( aren't they cute) so I wanted the booties to fit snug but not be tight. I also wanted them to be size adjustable.

Before you start , measure up your dog's legs, front and back leg measurements may be different depending on breed of dog, as well. You determine how tall you want them. I experimented with different lengths on Maximo to see what was more comfortable.
