One of the pups came out with one eye black rimmed & the other pink (skin) rimmed. What went wrong?
His nose has some pink too.

No big deal
by: Ed A from NJ

The puppy is missing a little pigment in his skin tone is the puppy is still very young it may still dark in. But even if it don't it is no big deal unless you had plans of showing him. Missing pigment is a reduction in points. But other then that that little one will be fine. If it upsets you. Let me know I can find him a nice home right here in NJ. Good luck with your bundle of joy.

Pigment
by: Donna

Nothing is wrong other than lack of pigmentation. When two whites are bred together, that can happen. Breeders will breed a line of Pyrs with colour with a white and there is not a lack of pigmentation.

I suspect you didn't get your pup from a reputable breeder.

In any case, your pup is probably just fine.

Its lack of pigment. thats all. Many pyrs have pink skin beneath the fur so its never good idea to shave them.

spotted tongue on my 5 month old Pyr/ Lab cross
by: Anonymous

we recently picked up a 1/2 pyr and 1/2 choco lab and hes 5 months old and has the badger look to him with golden hair amoung his choco colored hair with gold tones around his neck an slightly behind his ears, i've had a black lab rotti mix b4 but never encountered what my lab/pyr has: pink and purple spotted tongue. i thought the only dogs with diff colored tongues were chows chows. i've looked up realtions to the pyr to find out why the spotted tongue but cant find anything anywhere as to why.

This lil guy is a digger, we have a 6yr shepard who has dug holes in our yard in the past, but ive read here on this site that they do it to keep cool in the summer. we did have a childrens pool but we had to rid it cuz it had many holes and didnt hold water cuz of our shepard,but soon to get a new one to hopefully hold off the digging to keep cool, as this lil guy hates getting wet from the hose.
