3. Great Pyrenees' Personality

Pyrs were often left alone in mountain valleys with just their flock for company, so have developed a strong, independent streak. This has not made them aloof, though. They are generally known as calm, well-mannered, and devoted to their family. The Pyrenees have an affectionate nature and their time spent as guardians have made them gentle with children and small animals. They try to protect their family if the need arises, and many remain wary of strangers, especially if they sense their owners are uncomfortable.
