    I have no idea. I don't think that they knew anything about a potential different sire for quite a while after the puppies were born as the other possible sire is supposedly an ancient neighboring (and neighbor is a loose definition since they are miles and miles apart) BC. But he's not my dog and I was not involved in his purchase (I was not in favor of getting him either) so I don't have any specific details.

    That was an extremely informative link about EPI! Thank you @BrendaMNgri for joining up and sharing this with us, I saved it to my favorites. I have been on your web site before, when I was dreaming of living on a bit of land, wanting sheep and LGD's. We finally made it, we have 5 pregnant ewes, waiting on our 2nd lambing and have 2 Great Pyrenees. I am in love with your Pyrenean Mastiffs, they are so gorgeous! How do they do in hot climates?

    I hope you continue to post here and share with us the benefit of your experience and wisdom. We have a good bunch of folks here, those that know, help those who are trying to learn. Emphasis is always placed on the animal's welfare, no animal is considered insignificant.

    Welcome to the forum, hope you stick around!

    There is a buy/sell/trade section. You might get more views there?

    I think right here is best. The thread title already states the dog breed and anyone interested in that breed would come here first anyway. Probably following it. I hope you can find the right home and circumstances for those three beautiful animals.
