Pyrs are majestic mountain dogs that were bred to protect sheep from wolves. But despite their guardian roots – which still hold true when it comes to protecting their families – they are known for being patient and friendly with people of all ages.
Similar in size to Bernese Mountain Dogs, females are usually 85+ pounds, while males often surpass 100. Their life expectancy is 10-12 years.
These pups need to be brushed weekly, and despite their long hair, shedding is moderate. They’re not quite as outgoing as Bernies and Newfies, but they are very smart. It should also be noted that they are very active, especially for a breed of their size.
