Black & White Great Pyrenees
Contrary to popular belief the Great Pryenees breed from France is not historically only a white fur dog. The true French breed included black fur and historically a smaller head than is often seen in the AKC American dog. For the unscrupulous breeder any pup showing large amounts of black in the coat would be euthanized and only the white fur puppies would be kept. That is unfortunate as often the color of the puppies would change as they grow older and the black fur recedes.
The above puppy is 5 weeks old and will be sent to me soon. One of my goals is to bring back more of the black in the breed and try to have Great Pyrenees livestock protection dogs with black in their appearance.
