    How precious. Are they in someone's home or farm?

    PLEASE know what you are getting into if you get a Great Pyr. They are beautiful, regal, loyal and protective of their family. But they are also among the breeds most likely to end up at animal shelters because people unfamiliar with the breed think they are going to stay cute little fuzzy puppies forever. They are a giant breed (not just large breed). Ours topped out at 122 lbs. They have very low metabolism so don't eat as much as you might think but because of their size the monthly maintenance meds for heart worm & parasites are very expensive. And if they get sick...OMG$$$. If they develop hip dysplasia or spondylitis as they age ( which is almost a given if you get one from a backyard breeder) expect another $300/Mo for meds just to keep them comfortable & able to stand and walk. They shed profusely year round and suffer in the southern heat and humidity so that bringing them inside is the most humane thing to do once it gets above 85 degrees- especially for older Pyrs. (Some people shave them in summer but its not the thing to do- their double coat provides insulation & does not grow back right if shaved). They require frrquent brushing to avoid painful matting & their distinctive double dewclaws require frequent trimming or they will grow into the pad. They are independent, strong willed, and are not "people pleasers" ( in other words stubborn and essentially untrainable). They are nocturnal and bark loudly and continuously all night so that you will have to bring them in at night if you want to get any sleep and stay on good terms with your neighbors. They are prone to osteosarcoma (very painful bone cancer) that there are no meds that alleviate the pain of. ( We made the painful decision to euthanize our 9 yr old Pyr last week when she became unable to walk & we learned she had it. We could have had her front leg amputated & given her chemo but it would not have extended her life much so we decided not to put her through that, especially because she was already having difficulty walking because of hip dysplasia & spondylitis ). Because of their size Pyrs are not very portable. They must be confined at all times or they will just start walking and never look back. They roam great distances and have NO car sense. (Another reason so many end up in shelters). They are truly "working dogs" and want the opportunity to do what they are born to do- protect sheep or goats from coyotes, wolves & bears. So, I hope these puppies find the right home with people who know what a commitment they are making and that their new families keep that commitment for the entire life of each dog. And, lastly, I hope people will stop breeding dogs for profit (especially backyard breeders and puppy mills) until all the dogs at kill shelters have homes. There are plenty of Great Pyrs to be found there, along with plenty of other pure breeds (I recently read that about 25% of dogs at shelters are pure breeds) as well as mixed breeds. Our Pyr was a rescue, as are our other two dogs.p

    We also had a GP and were relieved when it passed away while being boarded at a vet's office. It would sit outside and bark at a rowboat tied to a neighbor's dock for hours. It was essentially neutral in the friendliness department. Snoop was not a good pet, bless her heart.
