The Gt. Pyrenees has been used for centuries as a guard & watchdog on the large estates of his native France. He has proven
ideal for it. He is as serious in play as he is in work. adapting himself & moulding himself to the moods, desires & even the
lives  of his human companions. Through fair & foul weathers, through leisure hours, fraught with danger, responsibility &
extreme exertion. This wonderful magic dog has an exemplification of gentleness & docility with those he knows. He is
faithful, filled with such a devotion, that he is willing to lay down his own life for those that he loves & protects. Willing to
sacrifice his own life for his loved ones & his charges.
