    Pyrenean Shepherd |France|

    Pyrenean Shepherd |France|

    The lively and charismatic Pyrenean Shepherd is known locally as Le Berger des Pyrenees. These dogs have been used for hundreds of years in the Pyrenees Mountains of southern France as the shepherd’s helper, chiefly herding livestock but also providing good guardianship. The breed was virtually unknown outside its home until World War I, when thousands of them were drafted into active service and used as “communications dogs”— ferrying messages at high speed. They were described by an officer as being “the most intelligent, cunning ... and the fastest” of all the breeds used. Pyreneans are charming, agile dogs, slightly wary of strangers but devoted family companions for an active home.
