Man’s Best Friend: The Great Pyrenees

Once they where known as the royal dog of France. And I think they are very cute!

  • From:France
  • Height:26-28 in (60-70 cm)
  • Weight:88-110 (40-50 kg)
  • Coat:White,possibly with tan patches;dense,wavy
  • Grooming:Once or twice a week
  • Exersise needs:40 min romp in the yard
  • K-9 Qualites:Loving,smart and strong-willed


They are sort of nocturnal because they had to protect the sheep at night.




And their white coats blend in with the sheep so they can catch predators by suprise.


The breed is said to be part of the mix that was used to create the Leonberger.

However, the breed can typically be trusted with small, young and helpless animals of any kind due to its natural guardian instinct.

On average, their lifespan is 10 to 11 years.


In nature, the Great Pyrenees is confident, gentle (especially with children) and affectionate.
