Breeding

by Audrey
(Raleigh, NC)

I am considering adopting a Great Pyre locally. The breeder is reputable and her farm is well kept. Her female GP gave birth to 12 beautiful pups in February of this year and all were adopted quickly. She already has a waiting list for her Pyre's next 'fall-litter' of this year. Her Pyre couple stays together at all times.

Is this too soon for another healthy litter? Both parents are on site and it appears she is otherwise diligent with their care. I just want to make sure the pup I adopt will be healthy and would rather look else where if her breeding practices are not healthy.

Adopting
by: Donna

A breeding bitch should be bred no more than twice (maybe three times) in their lifetime. Twice in a year is too many times.

If she is a reputable breeder, it means her Pyrs are registered with a recognized kennel club.

Make sure to see the lineage of her dogs. She will be ensuring she is breeding for sound temperaments and body. Also that there is no history of any types of illnesses that can be passed down to the pups.

If you do want to really adopt, there are many rescue dogs out there in need of homes. Many will even have pups. Here are two links:

If she has one breeding pair and she is breeding every cycle it is way to hard on her female. My advice is to look at all the beautiful GP available for rescue right here on these pages. There are real beauties and you save a life. I adopted both mine one at 8 months and the other was five years old. I would not give up ether for the world. Now one is 8 and the other is 13. Rescue is the way to go.
