For all you experienced Great Pyr owners...I was wondering if Pyr's drool.  My Aunt had a female that did not, so I assumed no, but recently a dog trainer said that they do.  Was wondering if you all could settle the debate.

The Spanish mastiff is called the Pyrenean Mastiff and has the temperment of a Newfie.  They are adorable and are supposed to be the BEST family dogs.  They are not guard dogs.

This is the saddest and yet the most remarkable thing.  If only people loved the way animals do...our world would be so different.  My prayers and best wishes to you and your family at this difficult time. :(

 Dianne McKee Rowland- I have a question for you...  I grew up with many sheepdogs and we loved them.  My husband and I thought of getting one and I went to shows, talked to breeders, gained info, read, I grew up with them and thought that I knew a lot.  I could not find a single breeder that would sell me one, nor would RESCUE work with me.  They all said the same thing that my kids need to be over 10 and that the breed has changed since the 70's when I was growing up with them.  (My kids are young 3 and 17 months...howev er, they are very good and we would NEVER put up with hair pulling, eye poking behavior towards the dogs...maybe they thought I would, and that was why they wouldn't sell to me.  They all said that they have had too many instances of them nipping kids to correct, as they are herders, etc.  What is your opinion on this?  I would love to kow as you are a breeder and have much experience with the breed.

At anyrate, we have 2 shih tzus and a Bernese Mountain Dog that are royalty and they are all GREAT with my kids and my kids are GREAT with them.  But, I still dream of an OES and am reminded of them when we visit my husband's frien who has 2 very cute and well behaved boys.
Thans, Britt Collins
