General Breed Information

The Berger des Pyrenees is an ancient breed that's said to have existed since 6,000 BC. This breed originated in France, and it is the traditional working companion of the Great Pyrenees. These two breeds work together to help the shepherd with herding sheep and other livestock. Outside its homeland, the Berger des Pyrenees is rare, although its popularity has risen significantly since the early part of the 1970s. Aside from being a great herder, the Berger des Pyrenees are agile, protective, obedient, and excellent in rescue work and flyball. Organizations that recognize this breed include the Fédération Cynologique Internationale, the American Kennel Club, the United Kennel Club, and the Continental Kennel Club.

Dogs of this breed have a height that ranges from 15 to 19 inches and a weight that falls between 25 and 35 pounds. The coat of these dogs is dense and can either be semi-long or long. Acceptable coat colours include fawn and gray, with minimal white markings. These dogs may also come in black and other colours, although these colourings are uncommon. The Berger des Pyrenees also comes in two varieties: the rough-faced and the smooth-faced.

These dogs are fairly healthy, although like other breeds, they may be susceptible to epilepsy, hip dysplasia, and progressive retinal atrophy.
