The Great Pyrenees is a very old breed, and
has been used for hundreds of years by shepherds and people
who retain livestock on farms because they are an expert working
breed. Their coats are white and can have varying shades of
gray, red (rust), or tan around the face (including a full
face mask), ears and sometimes on the body and tail. Despite
his regal and majestic appearance, the Great Pyrenees is a
keen worker, faithfully guarding his peeps no matter the weather
or terrain or time of day or night. With his intelligence,
scenting ability and excellent sight, he is an invaluable
companion. Bad news is, as dogs like the Pyrs gain popularity,
back yard breeders pump out puppies and sell them into the
wrong situations. Pyrs are most often bought for their appearance
and people don't understand their needs. They certainly may
not be the star of the local obedience class, and the breed
in general needs to be be exercised daily. As a result they
are becoming a fixture in shelters around the country.
Dexter & Lucy (Great Pyrenees &
Dexter has only told his true story to Lucy, and much like
the loyalty and commitment of Labradors, she's not talking.
Lucy and her big brother have become inseparable companions.
Lucy has made sure Dexter has gone from being inexplicably
abandoned to being unconditionally loved.
True to Great Pyrenees form, Dexter has immediately taken
on the responsibility of watching over his newest little lamb,
baby Andrew. Every time he walks past the pack n play
or bassinet, he checks in to make sure Andrew is okay. When
Andrew cries, Dexter comes to see what is wrong. He and Lucy
have exceeded their families expectations in their gentleness
and acceptance of their new baby into the pack.
Another wonderful story of two rescue animals adapting and
going with the flow, and making this Pittsburgh family "complete".
