9 Week old Pyrenees

by Deacon
(Henderson, Ky.)

We just got our 9 week old Pyrenees, his name is Buddy. After two days he is just laying around. He is eating and drinking and alerts us when he needs to go out. He just is not very playful at all. We have a huge fenced in back yard for him to play and run in. Should he be more active ? Thank you, Deacon

Patience!
by: Nashville

Pyrs seem to be very very sensitive. It might take awhile fir him to get used to you. After all, he probably misses his mom and siblings. It took a year for our dog to wag his tail at us when we came home. We thought the same thing.

Only 9 weeks?
by: Martha

I'm wondering if that is too early to be separated from mom/siblings? I am not certain what is recommended; I've always thought it was no earlier than 12 weeks.

Maybe someone in the know can provide the correct answer.

Good luck with Buddy. You should post some pictures . :)

Give it time. And, puppies are well ready to leave moms at 8 weeks old. Mom is ready to see the pups go.
