New puppy

Can I bring a new puppy into our home with a female great Pyrenees? Is it putting the puppy in danger? Or will it be overly protective with it? Does the puppy need to be a male since my Pyrenees is female? The puppy is a black lab....will they coexist well together?

The puppy should be male to have a better chance of it working out. Females have been known to work out with other females but more often than not, do not. Things may go okay for the first 6 months to a year. Once the female pup starts to figure life out and grow up, the two may get along or may not. There is no set rule.



It’s always prudent that when you have two dogs that they be of the opposite sex.



Do the introductions outside on neutral territory. Keep both dogs on leash. Take the pup into the house, leash on and let her sniff around. Keep leashes on both dogs until you are sure there will be no issues.



I hope this helps. If you need any more assistance, please let us know.

We have a beautiful 2 year old, female pyr and recently added a 5 week old male! Yes, I know, 5 weeks is too young, but he was weened from his mother too soon.
Anyway, at first we watched like hawks, constantly keeping them apart. Once we stopped watching, they fell in love...female replacing mama.
