Maybe a dumb question but... dogs & Canadian winters? Salt?

Okay, sorry, this may sound silly to many of you but I'm originally from Vancouver. This is my first winter here in Quebec and I've never seen -10C or more My dog loves the cold, he is a winter breed (Shiba Inu), but it seems like the salt on the road is hurting his feet! At least, I think that's the problem - because the cold doesn't seem to bother him at all in the backyard/snow/ice.

Do I buy booties for him? Where can I buy those? or is something else going on? My husband had to carry him home once he was in pain But on days where the salt truck hasn't been around, he's fine.
