I never see this dog mentioned in this forum and in fact in most other dog discussions, so I will put in my 2 cents worth. I have a 14 month old female and she is just a teriffic dog. I have heard all the stories about how you can not train a Pyr, but that is rubbish. She is highly intelligent and picks up tricks and commands very rapidly. She gets along great with all other dogs(big and small), great with adults and loves children. She requires moderate exercise and is quite happy with a 1-2 mile walk daily. She respects our propeerty and will not touch anything that we do not give to her. She knows what are her toys and restricts herself to them. Above all that, is the beauty of this breed. People are drawn to this big white dog. They can not stop touching her soft fur. By the way, these dogs stay clean. Dirt falls right off this coat. We brush her daily and she always looks like she just came out of the groomer. The way this dog attracts the young girls, I wish I would have had one when I was 18. I tell my grandson that he needs to get himself one of these, or maybe I will rent mine to him. Anyone else have one of these dogs or have experience with then, please chime in.
