Great Pyrenees

Set of illustrations of the Great Pyrenees in seated and standing positions viewed from the side profile

A fluffy member of the working group of dog breeds, the Great Pyrenees is a gentle giant bred to guard flocks of sheep as far back as the European Bronze Age. Named for the snowy Pyrenees mountain range that forms the Spanish-French border, this 100 pound canine has a distinctly white, long coat that allows it to thrive in cold climates. With soft, friendly facial features akin to those of a Labrador Retriever or Newfoundland, this kind companion is well suited for families thanks to its innate determination to protect young or injured creatures.
