Correct Breed?

Black, my loving dog has the double dew claws but is short haired and as you could guess has a solid black coat. Is it possible he is a Pyrenees, or is he a close relative but a separate breed?

Breed?

No, he is not a Pyr.

All Pyr's are white or have white and badger markings. It doesn't sound like he has Pyr in him.

There are many other breeds that have rear double dews.

I'm sure your dog is not a pure Great Pyrenees. There are other breeds that have double dew claws. It could be a mix with Pyrenees blood. When posting for this kind of help a picture is always helpful. With out there is no way someone would even guess. Good luck with him sounds like your in love anyway and that's good
