About Great Pyrenees DogsAbout Great Pyrenees Dogs

Great Pyrenees are large white dogs named after the mountain range in Southwestern Europe where they have been used as guardians of livestock for centuries.

In the U.S. they are referred to as Great Pyrenees dogs. In the United Kingdom and in Europe they are known as the Pyrenean Mountain Dogs. In their native France, they are called Le Chien de Montagne des Pyrenees or Le Chien des Pyrenees.  

Most likely they originated ten or eleven thousand years ago in Asia Minor. It is believed that they came to the Pyrenees Mountains with their shepherds and sheep about 3000 B.C. Over the millennium they have developed the characteristics that make them unique to the group of Livestock Guardian dogs.

Great Pyrenees Dogs are large, beautiful and highly intelligent dogs that have been bred pure for centuries and are prized for their guarding abilities as well as their majestic appearance. They stand approximately 32 inches at the shoulder and weigh between 100-130 lbs. Their coat is long, dense, weather resistant, and self-cleaning. They are capable of adjusting to warm or cold climates. Their coat can be all-white or white with badger, grey or tan markings.
