Pyrenean Shepherd


Pyrenean Shepherd The Pyrenean Shepherds were once virtually unknown outside of France. It was only when one member of the Pyrenean Shepherd breed became one of the winners in the World Agility Championship in 2003 that international interest began picking up. The Pyrenean Shepherd's Behavior Source: Wikipedia. Recommended for: pet, working dog The Pyrenean Shepherd dog breed is a miniature sheepdog. In fact, it is the smallest. Despite their small size, Pyrenean Shepherds are still sheepdogs through and through and thus also possess the cleverness and energy natural to all sheepdogs. They tend to stick to one person and would willingly follow that person around to help out in any way. They are sensitive to their human families' needs and their surroundings. In fact, this sensitivity can be carried to extremes and can make puppies too shy or too aggressive. Frequent socialization while young will help counter this. Remember that breed only provides a general clue as to any individual dog's actual behavior. Make sure to get to know dogs well before bringing them into your home.
