Great Pyrenees - Guide to Great Pyrenees

Description: Great Pyrenees are large, elegant dogs with a thick, primarily white coat. It is believed this breed's ancestors originated in Asia or Siberia and then migrated to Europe. Fossil deposits of similar dogs are dated to be from thousands of years ago.

The breed takes its name from the Pyrenees Mountains in southwestern France where they were used as guardians of the flocks. During the 17th century, the Great Pyrenees was recognized by the court of Louis XIV and named the Royal Dog of France. Not only was this breed desired by farmers and shepherds, but now by nobility as well.

The first Great Pyrenees dogs were imported to the United States in 1824 by General Lafayette, however, since this was at the time the breed was no longer fancied by aristocracy, there was no demand and once again, these dogs were mainly isolated in the Pyrenees mountain region. Interest sparked again in the 1930s and more dogs were imported to the US by Mr. & Mrs. Francis V. Crane who were both deeply devoted to this loyal and protective breed.
