They might grow a bit more, put weight on, coat gets thicker.

Make sure to spay/neuter at the right age as recommended by the vet.

13 months old
by: Jose Saucedo

My two puppies are almost 13 months old and just they turn in to a year old , but i got scary because they loose a lot of hair and they don't look fluffy anymore. I try to think that may be they are loosing baby hair? Right now they look really tall they look like a golden labrador retriver in their coat hair. It's normal?

Breeders
by: Donna

You didn't see the parents? You probably have mixes.

Never go to backyard breeders, farmers or pet stores for your pets. They breed for profit.

Pet store pets come from horrific conditions. Backyard breeders, mill pets (pet stores and online) and farmers do not breed for sound health or temperament nor do they breed to improve the breed. They also don't do the crucial socialization and handling required by many many different people which must be continued by you.

Always adopt or talk to breeders registered with a recognized kennel club (American Kennel Club or Canadian Kennel Club). They breed to improve the breed, for sound health and temperament and do the crucial socialization in the first 8 weeks of puppyhood which must be continued by you. I cannot stress this enough.

They only breed their bitches twice maybe three times in their lifetime when they are between 3 and 7 years old. They only have maybe 2 or 3 bitches and one or two studs.

There are over 600,000 dogs being put down every year because no one wants the dogs because they didn't do their research, didn't spay or neuter and have unwanted pups and just don't want the dog anymore.

Make sure you spay/neuter them now. If they are of the same gender, you do not want them interbreeding or breeding with irresponsible dog owners who do not spay and neuter.

Breed

Donna thank you so much for you help. Actually i meet the parents of my puppies and yes they are Great Pyrenees pure breed. I was thinking about and is better to go to a vet quickly because it doesn't looks pretty good. I keep in touch and let you know what's going on. Thank you :)

If the parents were purebred, that means they have registration papers. That means your pup has registration papers from a recognized kennel club.

This means you should also talk to the breeder since they want to know if there are any issues with pups. They will be the ones to best advise you and they want to advise you.

Make sure you are feeding a species appropriate diet (raw) for the best outcome for your pups to keep them healthy. Do your research on vaccinating and flea/tick meds. Below are some links.

Here is information for raw:
