I have recently bought a pup and was told that she was bread from a white femal and a black male. She is brindle..beautiful and very big at 8 weeks old. Are they black full blooded Great Pyrenees ?

I'm sorry but you may not be?

GP can have a little color around his head or over his tail but black is not one of those colors. The breeder may have miss informed you, which would concern me about him.

But you may have a very nice dog with true pyre blood. You may have a dog called a Lancer. Back when there was a huge outbreak of distemper in the Newfoundland breed they used our pyres to bring the breed back to large numbers. By breeding a Newfoundland to a pyre then breeding those puppies back to Newfies the breed would grow in numbers.

I think that is when the Lanceer became spotted newfies. As he grows you may find his nose shorter and wider more like a mastiff. I hope this is what you have. I would go back to the breeder and ask him to see the parents. But ether way every dog deserves a home and if you fall in love with him he is the greatest dog you can find. Love him and cherish him.

Depends on what you mean by black. There is no such thing as a black Pyrenees.

Brindle is not a Pyrenean colour. That in itself indicates that this is a cross of some sort, probably with a newfoundland.

'Coloured' pyrs are white with blaireau markings (or biscuit or gray or feu).

I wish there was a way to show a pic of her. I'm in love with her no matter what she is :)
