four months ago me and my cousin where given two great pyrenees puppies who where brothers sadly my cousins puppy passed away due to some health problems but my question is how come my cousins pup had the traditional dew claws in his back legs and mine only has one ? they where both bred the same and from two pure breed parents so why is mine different ?

Gentics are funny

There are a few reasons for this type of thing. The first one you will here is there parents or somewhere in the family tree they were cross breed and it gineticly it finaly cought up with your puppy. Second a,simply genetic defect.so ether way if you love him ride it out. Make sure to neuter the young man at the right time to give him the best life you can.Last catch up with the breeder you and your cousin need to be compansated for these issues. I hope you deside to keep him if given back i wouldn't think his future would be great. Good luck
