Great Pyrenees Appearance

Great Pyrenees have a thick, wool-like, undercoat that is topped by a coarse, long, dense, flat outer coat. The outer coat is so thick around the shoulders and neck that it looks like a mane.

The outer coat is white, while red, tan, or gray coloring forms around their face. In some cases, coloring can appear on the entire face, around their ears, and sometimes around the tail and body. According to the American Kennel Club, their noses and the area around their eyes must be solid black. Great Pyrenees have unique double-dewclawed back legs.

Great Pyrenees Temperament

These dogs are gentle giants. They’re extremely affectionate, self-assured, and wonderful with children. They are enormously loyal, patient, and calm. They form strong attachments to their family and can be quite protective. They are faithful and brave, and will bark at night if not properly trained. This is a bred-in instinct that helped Great Pyrenees protect sheep flocks.

Great Pyrenees Fun Fact

The Great Pyrenees has a history that goes back hundreds of years. One of the earliest mentions of the dog comes from the Catalonian Friar Miguel Agustín, who wrote about the Great Pyrenees in 1407.
