My nine month old Pyr's rear end is much higher than front. Will the front catch up?

Now worrys
by: Ed A new jersey

I would not worry he is still a baby, he is just going through a awkward stage. Pyres grow for at least 2 year and some say are not fully mature for 3 to 5 mentally. I don't know about that but taxa year old my boy was only 100 points and quite gawky. By his next birth day he was 34 inches at the shoulder and 165 pound. He is quite the looker. I would tell you to enjoy him because they get so serious when they get older, so enjoy the playful ness and take plenty of pictures. I'm sure he will be majestic just like they all our and as to loving well you got the right breed! Good lick and congrats!

growth
by: Marianne

My first reaction is a resounding yes, but I have to shave that down to very likely. there are individual differences with Pyrs as with any living being!

At nine months he's still a baby. Growth is very uneven, very much like a child who grows by spurts and goes all gangly at times, and then shoots up again.

Remember that a Pyr is not a full-blown adult before two years of age and in the case of males, often not until three. this applies as much to the mental as the physical maturation
