No double dew claws on either puppy, are they still Great Pyrenees?

we adopted two GP puppy's a month ago and neither have double dew claws. Are they the pure bred GP's we paid very good money for?

Double dew claws
by: Donna

If your dogs are pure bred, they will have come with registration papers from a recognized kennel club. If you are in the States, it's the AKC or Canada, the CKC.

If they aren't from a reputable breeder, you will never know what you have unless you get a DNA test done from a reputable DNA testing company.

I suspect they are not full Pyrs if they have no dews unless the 'breeder' had them removed (a reputable breeder would never do this barbaric practice). In many cases, if the dog is a mix of big whites, the dews may not come in as in your case.

Sadly
by: Ed A. From NJ

Sadly I would say they are not GP. If one was missing one set i would say ok maybe a ginetic mistake. But for both puppies to be missing them, well that would be a streach. Even if you love them and plan on keeping them (the noble thing to do). I would go back to the breeder and make him fork over part of the money!It is unethical to sell thrm as pure breed snd if they are he still should have let you know of this so you could make your choice. Now your more then likely in love. Demand a reduction.
