Not always Showtime
by Ed A from NJ
One thing I have noticed about many of the posts that are on this page is they have to do with small imperfections in our dogs. l. I think it is important to point out most dogs are not show quality and even the best of breeders don't have many true show quality dogs and find most of their puppies pet quality.
What would we have them do with the ones with slight imperfections, I wouldn't want them put down, would you?
The other thing is The AKC,CKC,KC and the FKC all have a slightly different standard for great Pyrenees. For example my Beau would only make the FKC because they allow bigger size and broader head but I could never own a better dog, ever.
So if you're missing a dew claw or a little nose or eye pigment it don't mean a mix or a bad breeder. The true way to know the quality of a breeder is homework looking him up for complaints and examining his property and the dogs parents. Also make sure your rescue is of going standing. Then enjoy your puppy.
Remember this is an old peasant breed made of mostly natural selection up in those mountains let's celebrate there true heritage!
