How I enjoy seeing the differences in mixed breeding of dogs. Mine is a mix of Pyr and Standard Poodle. Friends of ours has her sister and they are very close to being twins. They so enjoy being together. They certainly do BARK!!! alot. They will soon be 2yo…it doesn’t seem possible.

Hello. I have a two year old 85 LB. half Pyr and half St. Bernard indoor/Outdoor male named Max. He’s a sweet social butterfly, who never met a stranger and loves to play with new dogs. I’ve had a 120 Lb pure Pyr previously.
Advice i would give to new parents: You need to be a stubborn, strong spined pack leader. You just got a beautiful, loyal, sweet, fearless and notoriously bullheaded dog. They’re well known to jump in the middle of bears and mountain lions to protect their family or flock. Which takes some big balls and a really bullheaded attitude. So when it comes to training, think out suborning them but with patients. I’ve tried LOTS of training collars and the only one i HIGHLY recommend is a Gentle Leader Headcollar. It’s a collar i would recommend for ANY dog that likes to pull but most definitely for a Pry.
Much needed tools (in my opinion)
1. Dog Dryer=not really expensive, mine was on sale at Chewy.com for $65
2. a big slicker brush
3. rake brush
4. a very secure 6 FT fence or a invisible dog fence (when they get free, they are well known to have almost no recall)
5. Furminator deshedding conditioner
They seem to either have more wiry course hair or the cottony super soft coat. The wiry coat is much more low maintenance, a really doesn’t get too many mats. The soft cottony however haha is much more prone to mats. If your dog is an indoor/outdoor dog i HIGHLY recommend giving them a dry blowout(i blow his hair backwards) with the dryer. Then give them a good once over with the slicker brush and then blow them out once more about twice a week. It takes ten to fifteen minutes tops. This helps immensely with blowing the loose hair, dirt and dandruff out of their coat. Make sure you blow those Grinch feet out, foxtails are evil!
If your dog is a pet i would say, start training them young. Also as soon as your Vet gives the ok, socialized them with strangers and new dogs. Think dog parks and dog friendly places.
Again just my advice/opinion and i hope this helps.

I have a Great Pyr/German Shep/Lab/Rottweiler/Husky mix. At least that is what the dna tests said. He is 100 pounds, blue eyes almost all white except for a brindle patch around his right eye and some black specks on his ears. His fur is like a german shep and man can he shed but I love him the death.

Would like some info about the Pyr/Golden mix. Size, approx. weight, temperament, behavior, etc. We just lost our Buddy and need to fill a very empty space in our hearts and give a new baby a home full of love.
September 17, 2019
We don’t actually sell dogs — we just provide information about them.
You should be able to find a Pyrenees/Golden Mix if you do a Google search for your area.
Best of luck!

It’s Bernese Mountain Dog. Not Burmese.
Also, website is spelled wrong under ‘Leave a comment.’
But I enjoyed the photos.
September 2, 2019
Hey, Megan. Thanks for the catch!
The Burmese/Bernese mix-up was just a mistake. But I’ve already fixed that. 🙂
We were already aware of the misspelling of “website.” It occurred when we revamped the entire site a few months ago, and we’re trying to get that fixed too.
Thanks for reading!

Amazing things here. I’m very happy to look your post.
Thanks a lot and I am taking a look ahead to contact you.
Will you please drop me a e-mail?

I have a 6 month old german shepherd/great Pyrenees mix. He currently weighs 60lbs. and his feet are huge. He is such a sweet loving baby.
October 29, 2019
our pup …well he is probably about 4 years old. is a German shep/Great Pyr/ mix. He weights about 100 pounds. He too has big huge feet and his face is huge. My granddaughter calls him “cannon face” We love him to death. We also have a Great Pyr/Aussie Shep mix and she is the leader of our 3 dogs. She is most definitely a strong female.

I have a Great Pyraneese / Sheltie Mix. She looks like a tan beast with a dark muzzel. She’s 11 months and 46lbs. Cutie, and Smart, Definitely with a mind of her own. Good thing I’m used to raising smart, stubborn, standard Poodles.

Good thing indeed!

A pyrenean mastiff is not a mix of a great pyrenees and a mastiff.
A pyrenean mastiff is a pure breed dog from spain. They are very rare with less then 4000 in the world. Get your facts straight before publishing an article.
October 30, 2018
Hi Cindy – I think from the context of this article, it’s clear that we are referring to a mixed breed composed of the Mastiff and a Great Pyrenees. Folks create their own titles for these mixed breeds, and Pyranean Mastiff is one name people use for this mix. If there’s some cross contamination there, that’s just how it is.
January 17, 2019
I think you were very rude with your knee jerk comment and the person that runs the site gave you grace by responding so gently. You made yourself look foolish when not considering the nature of the article. You could have shared some interesting info about a breed that most have probably never heard of (I haven’t anyway), but instead your rude, snappy attitude quite overshadowed what you said. I think you owe the moderator an apology. Everyone would think more of you.

We have an eight month old great pyrenees/husky/wolf mix named Honey Chanel Blanco, lol. I’m not sure of how to upload a pic though. And I’m here to report, mom is doing fine!

I have a great Pyrenees and pit mix who is just too cute.

excuse me; a Pyrenean Shepard is NOT A MIXED BREED ! Pyr Sheps have been around longer than Great Pyrenees, and they are not related. a Great Pyrenees is a mountain dog; A Pyr Shep is one of the oldest dog breeds in the world….so old, they can’t track their origin, and are credited for many other sheep dogs…….. you didn’t do your homework….. there are three breeds of Basque dogs : the Pyrenean Shepard; the Catalonian / Catalan dog; and the Great Pyrenees.. This article just became bogus.; as you obviously just made this up as you went along, so your lack of research kills your credibility….Also, it would be impossible for many of these crosses to breed; unless it was via artificial insemination, which is so unnatural….and the mother would have to be the bigger animal.
May 26, 2018
Hi there! Thanks for sharing your info about the Pyrenean Shepherd, that’s really interesting! We were clearly referring to a cross between an Australian Shepherd and Great Pyrenees when we used that name (which is unofficial of course, it’s just fun to give a name to a crossbreed rather than constantly name both breeds when referring to them).
As far as making this up… I can understand why it may seem that way, as crossbreeds are currently very unofficial. There is no official database of crossbreeds – so the only option is to collect photos and information that users upload. If owners post a photo saying their dog is an Australian Shepherd / Great Pyrenees mixed breed, we don’t have much choice but to believe them!
Besides, these articles are more for fun, to see different variations on your favorite breed. They certainly shouldn’t be used for any kind of breeding criteria. Hopefully, that would be self-explanatory, but I suppose it bears repeating!
October 15, 2018
PERFECT RESPONSE!!! I was thinking the same thing! I simply came to see some cute dogs! Geez!
July 25, 2018
Wow. The mother doesn’t have to be the bigger breed, and A. I. although not as natural, keeps the breeding pair from any harm or stress that can be caused with breeding!
January 22, 2020
The Pyrenean Shepard you speak of is hideous. Whereas this cross breed with the great pyr Wis gorgeous.
