Great Pyrenees Home country: France

Original Name: Pastou
Great Pyrenees adult - coat 7
As it name indicates this dog from the Pyrenees is a French dog, originally from the south of France and the north of Spain.

Over time, this dog has become more of a guard dog or pet than a sheepdog. Pyrenean Mountain Dogs must be socialized from a very young age to avoid them from becoming aggressive.

For their size, their life expectancy is quite high, but keeping up Pyrenean Mountain Dogs can be time-consuming, due to their long and silky coat.

The Great Pyrenees is a large dog that originates from Asia. In the early 15th century, they were brought to Europe and became especially popular in France. The breed gets their name from the Pyrenees Mountains along the border between France and Spain, where the breed became very popular. The breed’s original purpose was for use as a guard dog for flocks of sheep, due to their large size and protective nature. It has been recorded that in the 15th century a Great Pyrenees guarded the Castle of Lourdes in France. The breed is closely related to other large breeds, such as the St. Bernard and the Newfoundland dog breed. The Great Pyrenees was officially recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1933 and remains very popular in many countries today.

The Great Pyrenees are known for their extremely large size, ranging from 35-55 kg, with the males typically much larger than the females. They have thick double-coats, with the outer coat being coarse and long and the undercoat being wooly and thick. Most have a thick “ruff” of fur around their necks. They are usually white or white with grey or tan markings. They have large paws and fluffy, feathered tails that are either carried low or curled over their backs when the dog is alert. Great Pyrenees are typically a healthy breed of dog, but are better suited to cooler climates because of their heavy coats. They shed a lot because of their long fur, and require regular brushing and grooming to keep their coats healthy and shiny.

Great Pyrenees are very devoted and loyal dogs. Since they are bred to be guardians, they become incredibly devoted and very protective of their families. They may be wary of strangers and other unknown dogs, but will warm up to them over time. They require proper socialization and training when young so that they become good companions as older dogs. They are highly intelligent and eager to please, and will make a wonderful lifetime companion because of their devotion.

Great Pyrenees have a unique appearance that has gotten them attention in movies and television shows. They were the stars of "The Search for Santa Paws", a 2010 movie about Paws, a Great Pyrenees puppy who has to help Santa Claus in New York City. A Great Pyrenees puppy was also featured in the 2009 movie "Santa Buddies", which is part of the popular "Air Buddies" movie series.
