Great Pyrenees Dogs

It has been written that no other breed can boast such a colorful history of association with, and service to, mankind through as many centuries as can the Great Pyrenees. His remains are found in the fossil deposits of the Bronze Age, which roughly dates his appearance in Europe between 1800 and 1000 B.C., although it is believed that he came originally from Central Asia or Siberia and followed the Aryan migration into Europe. It is also generally accepted that he is a descendant of the mastiff type which appear in Babylonian art about the close of the third millennium B.C. in a size and general appearance resembling the Great Pyrenees.
