Great Pyrenees dogs are tenacious shepherds that are able to hold off bears and wolves, a role they continue to play today.
Also known as the Pyrenean Mountain Dog, Great Pyrenees dogs have been bred first and foremost to guard flocks. They are strong and agile, as well as gentle and attached to their charges.
Used as messenger and pack dogs by the French army in World War II, they are now popular on every continent, from North America to Australasia.
