The Great Pyrenees is a very old breed that has been used for years by the Basque people who live around the Pyrenees Mountains of France and Spain. They are loyal and can make a great family dog. They do best in a home with a fenced-in yard. They shed a lot so regular grooming is a must. They require daily exercise like long walks and playing Frisbee. Get acquainted with this dog off leash in one of our family run areas. Most dogs will need to run off some energy before they settle down and get acquainted with you. Thanks!
