P-Breeding

by Brenda
(Ellabell, Ga USA)

Hello, I have one male and one female Pryn. they are 1 1/2 and 2 yrs old. My female is 1 1/2 and she had a heat cycle in September. My male is always playing with her and they get along nicely but when it comes to mating it is a mess. My male will try and get on her and se will just tease him or she will try to get on him and he seems confused about it. Is she still to young to breed? Please tell me why she does not want to mate and seems to think she is the male in this situation? lol When I got my female it was from a lady that said she came from a abusied family and they only fed her bread. After 2 days of being with my familyshee quickly warmed up to us and ate everything in her bowl and then some. she will come to me and the rest of the family but she still acts scary from time to time. I never have to discipline er because she is a wonderful dog.

I'm just so concerned about her and if it is a bad idea to breed her I will have her fixed.

Thanks.

Breeding

No. Do not breed your dogs. Is there a particular reasons you would?

It is a bad idea to breed. Get them spayed and neutered.

Leave breeding to those in the know. It's very expensive to breed when done right. You need to know at least three generations of each dog in order to know that their temperaments are good and their health is good (no ACL issues, heart issues, no Cushings, Addisons etc.).

National Pyr Rescue already has so many dogs in need of homes because someone just let their dogs breed and didn't ensure they went to the right homes. Didn't follow up to make sure they were spayed and neutered.

Yes, please spay and neuter. It would be the responsible thing to do.

A big favor

The fact that you don't understand what is going on is proof enough that your not a breeder.

So don't do it. You need to not only really understand the breed you need to know how to make a birthing bed for your girl, what to do if something goes wrong.

You would be putting both your female and the puppies at risk. I would bet you don't have homes for the puppies nor do you understand the cost of puppies. They need lots of vet attention plus shots and worming
