The Pyrenean Shepherd is a lively and mischievous dog of a maximum of 21 inches and 30 pounds.

This dog is the ultimate herder among dogs. In fact, this breed is descended from ancient sheepdogs of the Pyrenees mountains making them prone to hard-working time and conditions.

The Pyrenean Shepherd comes in ‘rough-faced and ‘smooth-faced’ coat varieties. The Pyrenean Shepherd is an extremely active breed, often described as a ‘ball of fire,’ and as such, they are very intelligent and comes with enormous energy.

This dog will require your time when it comes to exercise and outdoor time. They are very wary of strangers, so early socialization and proper training are mandatory.

The Pyrenean Shepherd is among the most responsive of all breeds, so mastering basic commands and beyond should be an easy and fast process.
