      depends on how bad it tore and what has been done for it. Does the dog keep it wrapped. Is he hyper and on it a lot. does he keep tearing it open,. Really hard to say not knowing your dog or the extent of the injury. could be a few weeks or never.

      It all depends on how active the dog is on his paw. It would be advisable to put a dog boot on his paw if he needs some gentle exercise and also this would deter him from tearing any dressings off or licking the wound. A badly torn pad can take 6-8 weeks or even longer to close up.
      Keep it clean and try and limit your dog from running fast or walking on rough ground. The more he rests the faster the wound will heal.
      This is easier said than done I do appreciate, as its difficult to limit a dogs activity. Good Luck.
