Hind Legs
by: Donna

Straight hind legs are best.

Any Pyrs I have known have not had any issues with hind legs. Pyrs coming from reputable/ethical breeders do not usually have any hip dysplasia since they breed to improve the breed and breed for sound health and temperament.

Timing
by: Ed A from NJ

I would only add 3 things.
1)Neuter at the right age, do plenty of reseach. I say for a,male 16 months for a female after second heat (but you have to be resoncable to see there is no mating, mating a young dog does as much damage as early neuter or spay)
2)I worry more about blot, again research and do tummy wall stiching to rib cage when neutering or,spay.
3) watch there weight a trim pyrenees is,a,happy hip pyrenees. None of mine,have come up,with hip,displasia and two were rescues!
