Mama Pyrenees

by Anne
(Alabama )

We sold all our pups and mama is in serious withdrawals-- jumping the fence (which she has never done) and generally looking for them. I'm considering buying one from another breeder (puppy) and wonder if she will be ok with that and if it will help. She was a very good mama to her pups;

Breeding
by: Donna

I would hope the pups were 8 weeks before they went to new homes. Bitches wouldn't react like that normally.

Next up. Spay your dog. There are enough unwanted Pyrs out there. Those pups that were 'sold' will probably not be neutered and spayed and they will all have pups and the cycle will go on.

This is not a breed for most people. All they see are cute fluff balls and don't realize they wander, bark and dig holes in gardens, need regular grooming etc. The dog ends up wandering the streets, being abused and the list goes on.

This is only one rescue full of Pyrs:

National Pyr Rescue

Do the right thing and spay her.

Donna is right. Females that have completely weaned their pups and have been actively moving their babies 'out of the nest' are ready to go on with their lives without them. 'Withdrawal', pining, hunting for her pups, does not normally occur in canine behaviour.
You may love your dog but you don't know what you are doing. My guess is you moved the pups out too soon and all at once. This is puppy mill thinking.
Spay your female. Send those people who see her and who express a wish to have their own, to a Pyrenees Rescue organisation. Good homes are needed for too many Pyrs of all ages whose owners were not prepared for the work of Pyr ownership, so gave their dog away, or dumped it, or abused it.
Will you follow up on the health and well-being of the pups you have caused to be born? Will you encourage their spay or neuter when they are mature enough? Did you interview the people who bought your pups to ensure they were suitable and completely educated about the breed?
My guess is 'no'.
So, what is it that you have just done?
