Roxanne

My pyr Roxanne was the best judge of character I have ever known. Typical of pyr, she inspected all guests, neighbors and strangers. When they did not measure up, they were controlled or banished. Because our family did not use tobacco products or alcohol, she sorted out those who did and was suspicious of them. If you are sidelined by a pyr guarding her family, you will be staying in your chair while you visit. There will be a mountain of a dog in front of your legs and you may not get up or move. She wasn't there because she was attracted to you, as some thought, but to face her flock and keeping danger behind a line.
Needless to say, my three daughters were always chaperoned by Roxanne while dating, and each man had to win her respect!
Once, she chased a man violently who came up walking silently behind me on a walk. He was wanted by police I found out later. My dog couldn't have been a better judge and friend. Great Pyrenees are not only gorgeous and silly clowns with family. They will give their life for you.

On the nose
by: Ed A. From NJ

I am on my 3rd pyrenees and they all shared the very trade! I have a Newfie also and she is glad to follow my pyrenees. But Maximoose calls the shots. My wife has dad rotties her whole adult life and even she admits there is not a better natural guard with better judgement anywhere. Once you have a pyrenees you never want to be without one.

Same here.....

Frankie does the same thing. You are greeted and assessed immediately. Most guests are welcomed warmly. If you do not do well on the initial exam, expect to be escorted to your seat where you will be pinned down by the steady gaze and physical presence of a suspicious Pyr. Just like you stated, many feel that this "presence" is oh so cute, she must really like you kinda sweet; but it isn't. Reality is you are under house security /scrutiny.
