Default Too cold?

It's been really cold here in Canada for the past few days, with a windchill of -30, and although I can wear two pairs of pants a ton of clothes, my 15 month old pup can't
Whenever I take him for a walk now, he starts to limp and walk with only 3 legs after a few minutes. Then he just completely refuses to walk and just stares at me. I bought booties for him, but they don't seem to be helping. Maybe one of his paws are really sensitive to the ice??
So I resorted to taking him out for short periods of time more often. But we run into the same problem every time. I feel so horrible seeing him shiver and limp when we're outside though
And also, he is really hyper indoors because he doesn't get his usual long walks

Anyone else have this problem or suggestions??
