Injury To Bottom Of Dog's Paw

I originally thought my Shih Tzu/Maltese could have hip dysplasia, but I looked at the bottom of her foot (paw) last night and saw that one of the black dots (I don't know what they are) is gone. She is limping on this paw. Can anyone tell me what this black thing is called and what I should do?

One of her pads has been torn away. You need to get her to the vet for treatment and to avoid infection.

With no dis-respect the obvious thing you need to do is contact your Veterinarian then try and establish how this happend to the animal. You can not leave this with-out treatment.
