Great Pyrenees Information
A big dog with a large, strong body and lustrous, fluffy white coat, the Great Pyrenees truly is a gentle giant. They have a zen, calm demeanor but can quickly spring into action if needed. They are patient and smart, making them an excellent choice for those with children and other pets. The breed is not particular active but does need daily exercise to stay healthy.
Historians note that the breed appeared in Europe between 1800 and 1000 B.C., and likely originated in Siberia or Central Asia. Later the Pyrenees was adopted by the French Court in the 1700s A.D.
