Full Description

A relative of the St.Bernard, the Pyrenean possesses a similar shape and build, with a stocky frame, wedged-shaped head with a slightly rounded crown, low-hanging ears, feathered tail and black nose and lips. The profuse double coat of the Pyrenean is common in colour deviations of white with patches of wolf-grey, pale yellow, red-brown or tan, and aided the dog’s survival in bleak mountain temperatures. The modern breed can be observed as a family companion, defender of house and property, flock guardian, avalanche search and rescue and sled dog.
