Great Pyrenees was originally from France. These canines were white in color, beginning in Asia Minor, around 10,000 years B.C.

Nomadic sheep herders traveled through the Pyrenees Mountains about 3,000 B.C., bringing their canines used to safeguard livestock, thus creating today's Great Pyrenees.

Just before completion of the 1600s, the breed came to be a favored amongst the French Nobility and were heavily asked for in the court of Louis XIV. Louis XIV, in 1675, made a public announcement that this pet dog was to be understood as France's Royal Dog. It went to this exact same time that the canines showed up in Newfoundland.

The first Pyrenees, in 1824, is stated to have actually shown up in the USA by General Lafayette. However, over the upcoming 75 years the breed had actually lost all appeal in France and could only be discovered working as useful guardians in little, remote locations. Passion in the breed stayed reduced and they had all however ended up being impulse in England.

Sometimes in very early 1930s, lovers of the Great Pyrenees began a strong breeding program, bringing in hundreds of canines to the US. The American Kennel Club officially recognized the stock in 1933, which aided the improvement of the dog's popularity with brand-new owners.

We had a Great Pyrenees on our farm in Missouri. We rescued him from a puppy mill. His AKC registered name was My Big Buddy. We called him Buddy. Every day he would roam around our farm, but at night when the coyotes would start howling, he would visit all the farms around us, checking everybody’s livestock. When he was convinced all was well, he would come back home, plunk his butt in the driveway and bark all night long to let the coyotes know he was on the job. We found him a nice home before we moved back to Georgia, on a 300 acre farm that also backed up to a 12000 acre Wild Life Management Area. Learn More About These Gentle Giants By Clicking Here!
