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.
