Dominance is a myth.
by: Donna

I would hope your 5-week old pup is still with its mother. He should be with her until she is 8 weeks old.

It's hard to say what will happen. We don't recommend two males or two females in the same group. They sometimes don't see eye-to-eye.

Here is some information for you on ranking amongst dogs and animals:

Please have your dogs spayed/neutered at an age recommended by your veterinarian. To mix a Pyr and a Pitbull is an irresponsible move on your part.

There are many unwanted dogs already in the shelters in the USA in need of homes.
