Love this story!

Made my heart swell with love. (and she is not even my dog)
We are on our 3rd pyr. They are family pets, live in our house, sleep in our bed. WE do not live on a farm, they are every part of our family as their humans.
We have NO doubt if needed they would defend their "flock" with their life. That is just who they are....LOVE LOVE LOVE these dogs.

best breed ever
by: Anonymous

I have a 14.5 year old Pyr mix (Pyr and collie, with a very "Pyr" way of thinking!), and I would have to agree that they are the best breed ever.
Our dear old girl came to us as a stray puppy, I didn't even know what a Pry was at the time...after a vet visit and a lot of research, I knew we were in for a challenge, but she's been so worth it!
From un-housetrained 40 pound puppy to the most beautiful, loving, gentle and intelligent dog I've had the pleasure to know...it's been quite an experience!
Rural properties would be super for this breed, but using positive reinforcement to minimize barking issues has worked well for us...and our neighbours say her "announcements" are always short-lived even when we are not home.
My girl has a wonderful temperament. She has always been extremely gentle and loving with people (especially kids!), foster puppies and the cat, but she is equally happy to be 'wrestling' around the yard with big kids or doggie friends!
One thing to note, though...when no one else is "in charge", she will (as is typical of Pyrs)try to take over. We've managed this by controlling her access to food, rather than freefeeding, and it works beautifully to reinforce that people are to be respected and obeyed.
My girl has been such a challenge, an adventure and a delight. She's taught me to appreciate the stubbornness, superior intellect, and gentleness of this exceptional breed.
In spite of the tumbleweeds in every corner, and the huge (did I say huge) holes in the yard, I can't imagine life without her. <3

Pyrs
by: Donna

Man has bred these dogs to be who they are. One must always work with their instincts and not try to make them something they are not.

They were bred to be independent minded since their real jobs are to watch over livestock without human intervention.

Respect and trust by a dog must be earned by the dog's human. One cannot command it.

Here is an excellent article:

If people don't like the barking, and independent mindedness, it's not the breed for them.
