Reasons our Great Pyrenees has never come into heat

by Linda
(Chillicothe, Ohio)

We have a Great Pyrenes we purchased when she was 5 months old.. She is now 17 months old and has never come into heat. We would like to eventually breed her but are wondering if this will ever be possible. An answer would be appreciated. Thank you.

Heat
by: Donna

Talk to the breeder from where you got her. You will have signed a specialty contract stating you will be breeding her. The breeder will better be able to answer your question and help you out.

I suspect she will tell you to have her checked out by your vet.

In Heat

Perhaps she had already been spayed when you got her?

If she were, she was obviously too young to be spayed but sometimes, it's okay since no one wants unwanted puppies.

However, if it were a reputable breeder and she sold the dog to you knowing you wanted to breed, then you definitely must go back to the breeder and ask questions.

Rescues and shelters are full to overflowing of unwanted dogs with over 1 million being put down every year because there is no place for them.

Giant breed
by: Anonymous

Hello! I know that giant breeds, like the Great Pyrenees often start going into heat later in life than smaller, even large breeds do- and this may not be an abnormality at all. You can google it for more information. The smaller the dog, the earlier the first heat sets in. Don’t hesitate to do research and ask your vet!
