Also known as the Pyrenean Mountain Dog, the Great Pyrenees date back to ancient Roman times, brought to Spain by the Romans, where the breed became well established in the Pyrenees Mountains on the border between France and Spain. These large, beautiful and highly intelligent dogs were entrusted with the formidable task of guarding fortresses and protecting sheep from predators, sometimes left alone for days at a time. Highly prized for their working abilities and appearance, the Great Pyrenees was bred pure for centuries, and was even made the official dog of the court of King Louis XIV of France.
In the 1930's the breed found it's
way across the Atlantic to the US, in the form of some excellent breeding dogs, and has since become one of the more popular breeds, both for work, and as a loveable family pet. Great Pyrenees are large, regal looking dogs that stand up to 32 inches at the shoulder and weigh in the area of 100 to 130 pounds. They have a dense, double coat, which makes them able to withstand cold and wet weather when performing their duties. The outer coat is long, thick, flat and weather resistant, and there is a dense, woolly, close-fitting undercoat. The coat can be all white, or white with badger, reddish brown, grey or tan markings Great Pyrenees are gentle giants; they love children and are loyal and protective of their home and family. They are very intelligent dogs
