More than two Pyr's?

We have a beautiful 3 1/2 yo male Pyr and a 2 yo female. They are both wonderful dogs (although the female is much cheekier than the male who is very laid back. Both are inside babies. We are considering adding one more to the family but we don't know if we would be better off to add in a female or a male.

More than two?
by: Donna

You can add a third but no guarantee that if male, the two males will get along nor if you get a female, that the two females will get along. In my opinion, you should leave it at two.

If you insist on getting a third, and it's a pup, you should be okay for awhile. Once pup reaches seven months and on, only then will you discover whether or not everyone will get along.

You will need to keep an eye on them. Fights can break out if the chemistry isn't right between all the dogs. It can get messy.

Usually, people will ask if they should get a male or female to go with their one present Pyr. In that scenario, always get the opposite sex.

You can have as many females as you like but let me warn you males are not a good idea to have more then one. Maybe not right away but most likely down the road there is going to be a fight even if only one seems alpha. They are very aggressive when they need to be and the fight with all be really bad and they will not come apart easy (trust me I been a there). Even then they won't hurt you on purpose but when fur is fling you don't want to temp fate. Enjoy your boy but get a second female.
