The Great Pyrenees was adopted as a French Court Dog in
the 17th Century.
Their intuition is unlike that of any other dog. They are calm,
willed yet remarkably affectionate. The Great
Pyrenees conveys the distinct
impression of elegance and
unsurpassed beauty combined with great overall
size and majesty. They possess an intelligent regal and kind expression.
Exhibiting a unique elegance of bearing and movement, their
coordination show unmistakably the purpose for
which they were bred, the
strenuous work of guarding the flocks
in all types of weather on the steep
mountain slopes of the
Pyrenees. While affectionate with their families, quiet
tolerant in general, if there is something to guard they are on duty! (visit
