Amanda,
We could use some more info.
What was his weight and age when you got him and the same now?
What are him basic personality traits?
Have you seen the parents?
Do you have any pictures of him standing and/or running.
THoM
Spay before the first heat NOT after the first litter.
Neuter before he runs away.

When I got him he was 6wks and 10 lbs he is now about 4 1/2 months and 45 lbs.
I do know the mother was a pure bred Great Pyrenees and I saw her when I went to pick him out all the other puppys looked like pyrenees he was the odd ball in color.  They said they thought the father was a bull mastiff.
Well we have noticed alot of the Pyrenees in his facial features he also has the double dew claws oh his back paws.  Im not sure what alot of Pyrenees or Mastiff traits are but he seems to be very playful and he only barks if he sees something as a threat he found a snake one day and kept going back to let us know it was there.
I dont have any pictures of him standing yet he is hard to keep in one place lol but I will try to post some later today.

He looks similar to my Murphy! Murphy is a Great Pyr/Husky Mix and is currently 4 months old and weighs 40lbs.  Murph's dad was full great pyr and his mom was full husky, and he also has the double dews.  Maybe he has some husky in him? :)

Hi,

We did a mixed breed analysis from Wisdom MX as part of thier initial study with the Vet Clinic I was working at at the time. It was done before they released the tests to the public. Here is my Abigail's results, and a picture of Abby (the little brown girl next to  our Pyr Ollie). So you can get an idea of what to expect.

Based on Abigail's behavior and appearance I believe this analysis. However, some people got bizarre results. Like a dog who looked like an apricot poodle/bichon frise mix came back as a rat terrier husky mix...


27% Australian Shepherd, 25% Rough Coated Collie
Small percentage St. Bernard, West Highland White Terrier
--the packet comes with a brief breed description of the major breeds of dog they determine your dog to be a mix of as well--
