9 week old German Shepherd with deformed paw.

I just got a GSD with a deformed paw. I believe the name of the disorder is syndactyly, which is when some or all toes are partially united. In my case, she has one fully formed toe, x2 toes fused together that never split and then one toe that is missing. As of now she runs around and walks without any issues or complaints. My question is has anyone ever experienced this or have a GSD with a similar issue. I'm just wondering what's the likelihood of her growing and this paw becoming a worsening issue or if there's anything I should be aware of or keep in mind while she's young.
