The Great Pyrenees is
a commanding animal of breathtaking beauty. The breed got its origin in the
southwest of France and the northeast of Spain in the circle of mountains
and surrounding valleys inhabited by the Basque people. The Great Pyrenees, known in France as Le
Chien de Montagne Pyrenees (the dog of the
Pyrenees Mountain), initially served as a livestock guardian. The Great Pyrenees is one of the oldest
breeds alive today
and are known for their colorful and well-known past in
France. The breed was brought to
America in 1930 when Francis and Mary Crane from Needham, Massachusetts,
fell in love with two adorable, snow-white puppies from France and began
a breeding program in 1931. If it
wasn’t for the Crane’s involvement the breed would be extinct.
The appearance of the Great Pyrenees is white or a
principally white coat that may contain markings of badger, gray or
varying shades of tan. They
possess a keen intelligence and a kindly, while regal, expression. The height of the withers for a male is
27-32 inches and for a female it is 25-29 inches. A males weight
may vary from 100-115 pounds and a female at 85-100 pounds.
The Great Pyrenees is blessed with great intelligence and is
alert but very calm in nature. A
calm dog translates into a wonderful house dog that is satisfied with
daily exercise and perhaps a 20-minute evening patrol of the backyard
fence-just to make sure everything is safe. Even though only working Pyrenees are
required to perform guard duty, the pet Pyrenees still takes its guard
work seriously-though in the home this translates to guarding family,
home, and even small pets. The
Great Pyrenees is a loving, staunchly devoted dog to its family. They are not overly friendly to
strangers and tend to keep a polite but watchful eye on any strangers to
The Great Pyrenees can live happily in any environment or
climate. He will adjust to any
temperature, home or atmosphere.
As a breed native to a temperate zone, the Great Pyrenees can
accommodate easily to intensities of heat and cold. The metabolism and body temperature of the
breed are lower than that of most other breeds.
As you have read in the material provided the Great Pyrenees
is a large, loveable protective breed that will accommodate any
family. The Hitching Post Family
Farm is dedicated, not to better the breed, that has already been done
centuries ago, but to maintain the excellence, quality and proper health
aspects of the breed.
