Moody Pup?

I have a two month old Pyr puppy who doesn't play too much. She's very quiet but then surprises us when she starts to run around and wants to wrestle. But then she goes back into her distant faze where she just looks on bored when we try to coax her to play with us. I'm confused on how to go about having her look more "lively" as a dog and companion. She does well on walks. But when we are back at home, she just doesn't do much of anything no matter how much we try to play with her. It's like she switches on and off. What's that about? Thank you so much for reading this!

Moody pup
by: Susan

Is she your first pyr? Pyr puppies are usually much calmer and more serious than most other breeds and can also have a tendency towards aloofness. She is also quite young yet and will likely get a bit more lively in a month or two. As long as your vet says she's healthy, there is nothing to worry about.

a very important part of gp puppies
by: Ed A from NJ

I just wanted to mention your baby is just that, so young that it is far to early to expect much. But I have really great news for you. Your little girl will be a puppy for every bit of 2 years! It takes that long for them to physically develop and I believe another full year after that to mentally mature. In the first two years her body goes though some fun stages, clumsy, gawky, thin and lanky. Of course they end up stately and beautiful. I would also recommend highly finding a vet that understands both large breed dogs and Pyrenees.

If you are nurturing your little girl do not rush. It takes them longer to mature and early neutering will be quite destructive to her. Do your research! I didn't have Beau early neutered I waited until he was 18 months old. Boy did it pay off. He is 8 and the picture of health. I should mention my girl Buttercup was done the same way and at 12 she shows no sign of slowing down. Both also have great hips. The dogs are not related nor from the same breeder so I believe good food keeping them trim and later neuter along with them being indoor sleepers is helping them along the road to health. I do admit I am very devoted to them. Relax keep an eye on her and enjoy the long strange trip your on.
