Eye Colour

by Monica MacLellan
(Montreal, Quebec, Canada)

Is a Pyr purebred if he/she has green or blue eyes....anything but 'black' eyes ?

I purely ask the question to pass information along to others who claim their dogs are 'pure'.

My loves have all passed on in the last 3 years...
Therefore. I have no pictures to publish.

Eye colour
by: Donna

In Canada, they are only purebreds if they come with registration papers from a recognized kennel club.

The standard for eye colour in Pyrs is a rich dark brown. Occasionally, there may be a throw back of a blue eye.

They have double dew claws on both hind legs. Each claw has it own pad.

Being Purbred
by: Wyo4fun

I must disagree with the statement that they are only purbred if papered/registered.
I have had my female tested. She did not come papered. My male did. The genetic testing showed both were purebred as well as their parents and grandparents per the lineages.
If someone fails to register their dog or cant with AKC that doesnt mean its not purebred just unregistered

Purebred
by: Donna

Here are the policies for Canadian Kennel Club

"...Any breeder selling a dog as purebred must register the dog and provide the new owner with the registration certificate within six months of the date of sale – this is the law, as required under the Animal Pedigree Act..."

The AKC is unclear but this is from Wikipedia.

You can certainly have a full Pyr.
