Great Pyrenees Question

Our Great Pyrenees had only 1 puppy with first pregnancy?


Our female pyrennes had only one pup 16 hours ago , but she never really looked pregnant and both her and pup seem perfectly fine and happy now! This seems unusual to me , having had many dogs in the past, none of which ever had only one pup. Is this normal?

A dog can easily only have one pup at a time. It all depends on when she dropped her eggs and when the male mated with her. To be safe, you should take mamma and pup to the vet as soon as possible. The vet should X-ray mamma to make sure there are no other pups and that she is good and healthy and able to raise the pup correctly. Because there are no litter-mates, the pup will be under socialized when it is old enough to go to a new home, so please make sure the new owners know how to work with an under socialized dog.
