The Pyrenean Mountain Dog, known as the Great Pyrenees in North America, is a large breed of
dog used as a livestock guardian dog.

The Great Pyrenees is a very old breed, and has been used for hundreds of years by shepherds,
including those of the Basque people, who inhabit parts of the region in and around the Pyrenees
Mountains of southern France and northern Spain. One of the first descriptions of the breed dates
from 1407, and from 1675 the breed was a favourite of The Grand Dauphin and other members of
the French aristocracy.  By the early nineteenth century there was a thriving market for the dogs in
mountain towns, from where they would be taken to other parts of France. However as late as 1874
the breed was not completely standardised in appearance, with two major sub-types recorded, the
Western and the Eastern.
