Pyrs are the best breed ever

by Summer
(Alabama)

I had never really been around a Pyr before and someone asked me if I would pick up a litter of pups that were 4 weeks old and the backyard breeders were going to take them and give them away at a flea market. They were not literally breeders, they just had a male and female and didn't get them fixed.

I picked up a litter of 8 pups and when I was there they had an older female who was about to go into heat so I took her too. I kept the older female and had her fixed immediately and I kept two boys. I turned the rest of the litter over to the Pyr Rescue.

I was only going to keep one boy and my sister was going to get one of them but she changed her mind and no way was I giving him to a stranger by then. So I have three now. All grown, all fixed. I adore them. Sweetest, most loving, protective dogs you will ever find.

The hair is a nightmare and I have to brush and vacuum all the time but they are worth it. My two boys are 1.5 yrs old and the female is 3. I have no doubt that if someone broke into my house these dogs would kill to protect the family. You know what? I would kill to protect them too.

I believe when dogs, especially pyrs (they are exceptionally intelligent) know how much they are loved by their family. they love you back that much more. Frank knows she is loved and she loves her family so much that she would sacrifice herself to protect them. They are definitely amazing dogs.

If anyone is looking for a Pyrenees, please consider googling a rescue. They have pure pyr adults and pups available all the time that need loving homes. Just make sure you research them first. A lot of people see a gorgeous little fluff ball and want it, then it grows up. As with any animal you intend to adopt, make sure you know about the breed and are okay with their quirks.
