Breeding
by: Donna

Is your female registered with a recognized kennel club?

Do you have a breeding contract with the breeder from whence your Pyr came? If not, your breeder will have followed up to ensure you spayed your bitch.

Or, your dog is not from a reputable breeder and you are breeding to make money.

There are enough unwanted dogs out there. The shelters are full of unwanted dogs. People breed not knowing the lineage of their Pyrs. This can lead to unsound temperaments and unhealthy bodies. People don't follow up to ensure their pups are spayed/neutered at the appropriate age and then those people's dogs end up pregnant, oops, it was an accident or they just wanted one litter so their kids can see puppies being born.

Please, do the right thing and spay your dog. That should happen about about 6 months old.

Don't do it, it takes a lot of experience to breed them it is expensive and there are plenty out there for anyone who wants to adopt. You will be disappointed and broke.

If you don't know these things, ask your breeder. You certainly aren't in a position to breed your dog. I agree with the two previous comments.
