So cute! Reminds us of ours at that age. Makes us smile.
Your baby 2 1/2 mos. old now, so by Christmas you will know how big he will be. They get big really fast. So, enjoy the puppy snuggles now.
Ours tips the scales at about 140lbs now and measures 36" tall at the shoulder. So teach your pup good manners now, you will be glad you did. Socialise him with lots of children, other dogs, take him places....be diligent about this. And never, ever use punishment as a teaching tool.
Good luck. Enjoy your baby!

Thanks so much for the info. I also have a Saint Bernard that is 189 and tall and skinny. Also have a pit mastiff mix. This is the fastest learner I have ever had and have had 14 dogs in 38 years. LOVE him!!!!

Weight
by: Anonymous

We take our Great Pyrenees dog out a lot for walks and several people have said he looks like he is 9-10 weeks old but he is just shy of 5 months. He weigh almost 50 lbs now. We were told he is pure bred and he has all of the breed standard characteristics. Double dewclaws black liner around the eyes. Can anyone give us some insight we're hoping he weighs at least 120 although we'll love him anyway he is. This is our first pyrpuppy!

Any insight would be helpful thanks :)!

Purebred
by: Donna

You would know if your dog was purebred because he would come with registration papers from a recognized kennel club.

You would be able to ask the breeder any questions you have. In fact, they absolutely want you to so their pups get the best start in life.

Some people think saying you have a purebred or a your dog doesn't have to come from a recognized kennel club is very pretentious. However, it is not. Having a purebred dog means you know you are getting a full Pyr and you will know the dog lineage. This means that a breeder breeds to improve the breed so they are of sound temperament and health to the best of their ability.

Getting a dog through online sell sites, backyard breeders or farmers means you never know what you will get. In the rescue world, it means people want to surrender their dogs for behaviourial issues. It's not always due to them not working with their dog but it's usually because of the source of the dog. Genetics can play a role in aggression issues.

You also may not be getting a Pyr. There are other white breeds out there such as the Akbash, Maremma, Kuvasz, Tatra etc. Many of these suspect 'breeders' don't know the difference between them and you may get a mix of these breed which can lead to behavioural issues.

You only wanted to know about the weight of your pup but that can vary. You would have seen the parents and their size. Talk to the breeder.
