Mothers Day Pyrenees Puppies
A Happy Mothers Day
A Litter Of 10 Puppies
Update! Goldie and I have had a very special Mother’s Day. She started her labor this morning and her Great Pyrenees puppies started arriving at 5 this afternoon. So far she has delivered 9 puppies. I am not sure she is done. Her litter has 2 of the rarest colors of Pyrenees. One is called a full Blaireau and the other is considered black as black covers more than 1/3 of the body. Puppy number 10 just arrived!
Did you know? Fun Fact!
Rare Great Pyrenees Coats can present in the average Pyrenees litters. Although the Pyrenees are known for their white coats the breed has had ‘unique’ coat varieties extending back to their early working breed ancestry. However, the white coat is not the only legitimate Pyrenees coat color per say as the breed can have a variety of color combinations, patches, shading and bridling as shared below. The rarest of all is the black coat Pyrenees and the “Full Blaireau’ French, for “badger” showing off the badger coloration or translation of this coloration seen covering the puppy coat. Furthermore, Orange, orange shading and/or orange patching and Salt n’ Pepper coats hearken back to the days of the working breed lines. These coat colors celebrate the rich working breeds of old, with intention to do what Great Pyrénées do best, protecting their flocks and herds alike.
