Overview

As grand and wondrous as the Pyrenean mountains whence he comes, the Pyrenean Mastiff is an awe-inspiring guardian breed that remains one of Spain's best kept secrets. The Pyrenean Mastiff is rugged enough to weather the outdoors, though he prefers to be indoors with his family, to whom he is fiercely devoted. Towering at over 32 inches at the shoulder, the adult Pyrenean Mastiff offers expert protection for home and property, given his natural aloofness to strangers. Additionally, owners will prize this noble breed's calm, confident demeanor and its superior intelligence and bravery. The author provides a thorough history of the breed in its native Spain as well as in the US, where the breed has begun to win new admirers. In detailing the breed's history, the author rightly credits Rafael Malo as the savior of the modern breed and the man responsible for promoting the breed internationally through his La Tajadera del Tío Roy kennel.
