Full Coat
by: Donna

About two years old.

Never shave it. Keep them groomed daily with a slicker brush and give them a more thorough brush with comb and slicker once a week to stay ahead of the mats.

Allowing matting will be very painful for the dog as he moves about.

To Donna.
by: Jose

Hi Donna, i have a question, my both gp they blowed out their coats at 1 year old, loosing all their fluffy hair at the end they had a look like a dog shaved, now they have 14 months old and the hair is growing slow, but it's normal? I saw a lot of pictures of gp 14 months old and they have a full coat of fluffy hair, I'm really curious about it. And both are full breed gp.

Pyr Coats
by: Donna

Do they have double dew claws on each hind leg?

Are they registered with a recognized kennel club? This would make them purebred and you would have gotten them from a reputable breeder.

They would be happy to answer your question since they would know their dog's lineage. Perhaps there is a quirk somewhere in the line?

Are you feeding high quality food (preferably raw)?

I haven't seen this happen with any Pyrs we have had that I know of not so they look shaven. Their hair will thin out in summer (blow their coat) but the coat will remain long. The under coat just disapyrs.

I'm just trying to throw things out there. The breeder can help you. If not from a registered breeder, I can only suggest you take your dog to the vet for some blood work if you feel his coat is that bad to find out if something else is going on.

Pyr Coat
by: Donna

Having just responded to your To Donna, Josee, other things popped up elsewhere you had written.

So, you already know what a Pyr looks like (we ask about double dews but they can also be on Maremma, Akbash, and Kuvasz but they can also throw singles).

After having been in rescue for awhile and amongst mixes, not Pyrs, full Pyrs and purebred Pyrs, I think I can finally tell a Pyr from the other whites without seeing dews. Photos can be difficult from which to judge that, however, sometimes.

Purebred is not elitist. It's just when it comes to Pyrs, they are a guardian breed who needs proper upbringing, and bred for sound temperament and health. Otherwise, as we see so often in rescue, are aggressive dogs because the people didn't know what they were breeding (they were white) and they didn't get the crucial socialization required in the first 3 months.
