Does the mom have two dew claws on each hind leg of the mom?

Do all the pups have two dew claws on each hind leg?

Are the dogs all registered with a recognized kennel club? This is how you will know if they are purebred.

DNA is the way to go
by: Ed A from NJ

Great Pyrenees have a very distint DNA. Because they are lupomoslouds whe all other big white guarding dogs are mosolouds with mastiff DNA. For a meer $69.00. You can find out beyond a shadow of a doubt if your dog is of pure great pyrenees descent. Scientific proof positive. It is the wave of the future. The report you get is great.

Quick exsample
by: Ed A from NJ

My problem with counting on pedagree papers. You have a breeder that breeds only one breed (as they should) but one warm spring night the naibors andolian jumps the fence, quite possable as,andolians are able to do a 6 footer. The female pyrenees gets in a motherly way. Well the,breeder thinks,his,stud did the,job and sends in his,paper work as if his stud and bitch had the litter. Well the andolian is a,double dew dog as well. You now have a pedagreed dog that is not purebreed. I present this story as an accedent so as not to insult good and decent breeders. But we all know there some rotten apples every where. Because i am,parinoid about trusting anyone, that is why i posted how i picked my purebreed in a different post on these pages and also indorse DNA testing. By accedent or deseat you have to get more then,a piece of paper. Also if you rescue it would be nice to know the,true blood line of your dog.,

My "Great Pyr" has short hair. Missing one back dew.
by: G

I bought what I was told, a pure bred great pyr. Well shes full grown now, and since i got her (I got her very very early, and i think i know why now...) shes always had one back leg with the double dew, and one back leg with only a single double dew. It didn't look too suspicious. It looks like a general mutation. I thought, Oh well, some humans are born with more or less fingers than normal, and they're still humans. (can you tell i'm not a scientist? haha.) I thought, "She's probably still a great pyr!" Well...lol, she's definitely not a pure bred. I didn't care about that too much, i was just looking for a goat protector. Which she is amazing at. But she has short hair! Her hair is short and coarse, and shes got this lion mane around her head. The more i look into it, the more she looks totally like an akbash. Except what is with the single dew claw on one back leg, and the normal double on the other leg?

Dew Claws
by: Donna

You probably have a mixed breed.

Purebreds always come with registration papers with a recognized kennel club to prove they are a particular breed. If anyone tells you differently, you have been fooled.
