Pyrenean Shepherd Information
The Pyrenean Shepherd has herded sheep in the Pyrenees Mountains of Southern France for hundreds of years. With a long history as a herding dog, understandably the “Pyr Shep” possesses many of the characteristics found in herding breeds including intelligence, versatility, strength and courage.
This lean and lively dog loves to be part of a family, preferably an active family to keep him entertained and exercised. This breed can become destructive if cooped up and left alone, so make sure he gets the TLC he needs. As far as grooming goes, the Pry Shep just needs his coat – which comes in two types, Rough-Faced or Smooth-Faced, and many different colors – brushed a few times a week.
