If this is the female, she is too old to breed, now.

That would be one of the many reasons not to breed whether the male or female. This will carry on into the generations to come.

Know that there are rescues/shelters full of unwanted Pyrs, many of whom are euthanized because the shelters are full. Perhaps you could direct people to those should they want a Pyr.
