Great Pyrenees are sometimes referred to as Pyrenean Mountain Dogs or Great Pyrs. They are considered a wonderful Livestock Guardian Dogs (LGDs) breed. Their average lifespan is 10-12 years. Males tend to weigh 100 - 120 pounds and females weigh 80 - 90 pounds.
At Goat Milk Stuff, our Great Pyrs protect the goats. They also protect all of their humans and are very vigilant. They're super loving dogs and have earned the nickname "Gentle Giant".
We currently have three Great Pyrenees dogs on our farm - Thor (neutered male), Cagney (female), and Lacey (female). All are excellent dogs!
