panting

My 13 mos old Tricolor Great Pyrenees female rescue pants alot, even as the temperature is 60 degrees.....I have had her 10 weeks and she seems comfortable with me. I don't know if this is anxiety or heavy coat. She has been examined by the Vet and found in good health.

Your dog has been checked by a vet, but what did the 'check' consist of? Was your dog checked thoroughly including a check for Addisons, thyroid etc?

Were her joints x-rayed? There may be a health issue with her, that has not been found. You may want to take her to another vet for a second opinion. It would help to carefully note everything you observe of her behaviour before you take her to the new vet.

Does she pant every min of every hour, or at specific times of the day? At mealtimes? After mealtimes?

Do you work and leave her alone in the house? Did you ask the staff at the shelter if they know anything abut her past?

Do you take her for walks? Did you check her coat for hair knots? Is there a lot of noisy chaos in your neighbourhood? Many, many things can cause this.

Keep a journal...record everything carefully. This may be anxiety due to her being in a new situation. Or, something else. Don't give up until you find out what it is.
