The Great Pyrenees is a large livestock guardian dog closely related to other breeds such as the Maremma, and less closely to the St. Bernard and Newfoundland. They are mostly nocturnal, and are naturally protective of their flock, whether it be human or animal. Males can grow up to 130 pounds, and females up to 115 pounds. They are mainly white, with occasional masks on the face. They are confident, protective and affectionate, but very rare to bite. They do bark a lot, however.
At Rolling Hill Farm we have a male and a female Great Pyrenees who guard our animals and our farm. These individuals are a non-breeding pair.
