Compatability

You are right. Always male and female. Make sure your male is neutered at the right time and the female spayed at the right time (a year to two years old). You don't want puppies.

It will be a lot of work to have two puppies. You might consider adopting a little older dog. One, two or three years old.

It doesn't matter what breed, really. Whatever breed you like.

If you are going to go for a puppy, make sure to go to a breeder that is registered with a recognized kennel club. Then you know you are getting a well-socialized dog who has been bred for good temperament and health.

Got that
by: Ed A. From NJ

I have a male Pyrenees and a female Newfie. They are perfect together. Maximoose is 6 and Nava is 17 months old. Donna is right,Maximoose was neutered before Nava got here. You must be very careful not to even allow mounting even with a neutered male. Newfies have soft and slow bone growth and can't even do steps or hop in the car so you must be careful when they are young. Maximoose has been really great with her.

Depends on several factors IMO
by: Anonymous

We rescued our 2 year old female Pyrenees back in January of 2016. We already had 2 male bonded Siberian Huskies. She did fine with one of them but constantly got into little scuffles with the other. Both of the boys are friendly and very well socialized but the one she kept getting into it with has been lacking in self confidence lately. Our Pyr is severely under socialized and basically learning everything as if it's her first time experiencing life despite being 2 years old. Now we added a new 5 year old female husky and her and our Pyr hit it off immediately. Our Pyr seems to adore one of our huskys though he doesn't always give her the time of the day. She doesn't scuffle as much with the other one but she'll randomly snap at him from time to time. They seem to simply tolerate one another. They won't play or anything like that.
