Feet smell like corn chips

Hi guys. My dog's feet smell like corn chips, is this normal or should I be worried? Do I need to change his diet? He is a coonhound, is it a common issue with the bree? I just noticed this today and want to know if it's something I should be worried about.

Thanks,

Walter

Nothing to be worried about, its a condition called Frito Feet its caused by bacteria and yeast that dwell on a dog's feet and are known for their corn tortilla smell.
