Great Pyrenees
Fearless Loyal Devotion.

The Great Pyrenees dog, known in England and on
the Continent, as the "Pyrenean Mountain Dog" is one of
the most ancient purebred breeds, dating way back to the
Bronze Age, between 1800 and 1000 BCE.

Puppies taken back to France during the reign
of Louis XIV, became such a big hit with the nobility, they
were designated the official court dogs.  The Pyrs earned a
reputation, not only as very loyal companions, and pets, but
also as devoted shepherds and faithful guardians of sheep.
Armed with a wide spiked metal collar, for protection, they
vanquished wolves and bears alike, on the slopes of the
Pyrenean mountains on the Franco-Spanish border.

The Great Pyrenees is distinctive and elegant and
combines great overall size and majesty.  Although it is
somewhat reserved, it is attentive, confident, gentle and
affectionate with its family or flock, and is territorial
and protective when necessary.  As with most breeds,
a Great Pyrenees puppy should be well socialized
to bring out its best qualities.
