cold weather

Hi, I am confused about cold weather. I know they love cold weather but is there a temperature that is too cold for them to be outside in? Thank you.

I'm sure there is a time where the weather would be too cold and I think it varies from breed to breed and even dog to dog. I would think if your Pyrenees was an outdoor raised dog, up in those mountains his whole life he would have built up a very strong tolerance for cold where as a Texas pyre or even a house pet pyre would be less so. That being said it is -18 degrees here today with wind chill and I have to fight with my dog to get him in the house. He is 8 years old and a house dog so for him that seems low and yet I'm sure it bothers me far more then him. Still I say better safe then sorry, err on the side of safety and limit cold weather romps if you can.
