The Pyrenean Shepherd originally comes from the Pyrenees Mountains in the area belonging to France and they enjoyed a warm and pleasant climate there. This is a breed that is as old as time itself. We have no record of when this breed first appeared but they are a breed original to the Pyrenees Mountains. This dog has always been a herding dog and is an excellent herder of sheep. It was usually seen working alongside the Great Pyrenees, the dog breed responsible for guarding the flock. This breed is so efficient at herding that it would only take two Pur Sheps to herd about 1000 sheep. This is a very energetic dog known to run a total of 25 miles or more per day in their job as a herder. Their medium size on their rectangular body gives them the right body type to do plenty of running which is an essential trait to a herding dog.

Since we don't know much about their early history we won't know much about this breed's original diet but as a companion of shepherd's we can guess that the dog most likely hunted for their own food and supplemented with treats and scraps from their owners. In the area of the Pyrenees Mountains you will still see these dogs doing their original job as herders but in other parts of the world, especially America, these dogs are usually show dogs and family pets. Pyrenean Shepherds were used during WWI as search and rescue dogs and to deliver messages. The 2003 Midi World Agility Champion as a Pyrenean Shepherd named La who managed to run a full 6 seconds faster than any other dog. As a family pet and even as a show dog this breed has such less active lifestyle than it did as a herding dog. It does best with an active family who can give the dog plenty of exercise and mental stimulation. Now that this dog has taken on the role of family member instead of working dog employee they no longer have a need to search out their own food. It is very important that the caloric intake of this breed matches its lifestyle and activity level and that the nutrients of their food specifically matches their needs.
