two males

by kirsh
(prince edward island)

We have a 21 month male Pyrenees and 14 month old female{not spayed but soon to be spayed} and our son just recently got a male pyr now three months old from litter of which our male was the sire. Daddio seems we thought a little too aggressive towards the puppy. Will this normalize? He seems good towards other animals usually but there's never been two males here before. Thanks in advance

something wicked this way comes
by: Ed A from NJ

Two male Pyrenees is looking for trouble. Daddio may be calm for a bit but don't be fooled. I have heard of two males that seemed to be getting along quite fine only to wake up to a huge fight and blood. Males can not be trusted with each other and the problem is they don't just have a little bout and get over it. They will hurt each other bad and one or both could be fatally injured.

I can tell you I have a big male and when I marred my wife and we moved in together we had a male Rottie as well as a female of sack. For years we took all 4 to the dog park where they were always a happy pack. Watching over each other.

Well long story short after about 3 months of living as man and wife I was startled when my wife was screaming for me to hurry down to the dogs. When I got there the two boys had each other by the neck but with the power of his huge hips Beau was ramming DIESEL into the wall and I could see Diesel was starting to fatigue and was losing his grip on Beau's neck. I knew Beau would show him no mercy so I jumped into the middle of it (I Do not recommend doing that). We were rolling around for what seemed like forever and they didn't break until my wife turned the hose on us. From that day on the two dogs could not be let out together. We lost diesel to cancer a year ago ago. It was difficult to have to segregate our own dogs, please be careful.

Two Male Pyrs
by: Donna

Ed is correct. Two male Pyrs or two female Pyrs are not usually a good combination. We always recommend a male (neutered) and a female (spayed), if you want two Pyrs.
