Okay, since we are in the Pyrenees today— do those great white, sheep guarding dogs really live there? Like if you go to Andorra, is every third dog such a dog?
I’m fascinated with that breed.
Me too Paulina! I was so upset at a hoarding situation for Pyrenees mixes recently. They were looking for fosters and I just couldn’t take any, so I sent money. I really did want to take one - my cats had a slightly different opinion.
In solid middle age, I got my first dog a couple years ago, a golden retriever. I wanted a Great Pyrenees, but all advice said that is not a good first dog (same with my other favorites, huskies, and German shepherds). Apparently you need a lot of space and the dog really wants to do the job it was bred for--circling the perimeter and fending off wolves.
