Introducing the Pyredoodle!
Pyredoodle's are an intentional cross between a standard Poodle and a Great Pyrenees. Poodles are highly intelligent, non-shedding, and less susceptible to health common health problems. Our desire in breeding top quality Pyredoodles is to produce dogs that have many of the Great Pyrenees wonderful traits without necessarily having the drawbacks. Pyredoodle owners love their devoted, affectionate nature, non shedding hypoallergetic coats, more quiet temperaments, and outstanding intuition.
Pyredoodles are perhaps the best of all doodles for being like a "nanny"--entirely devoted to children and small animals. Pyredoodles love to protect things. They are one of the only doodle breeds that can function as a watch dog. Pyredoodles tend to be fine with "strangers" who are welcomed or introduced by the family, but anyone that is uninvited will be very suspect to a typical Pyredoodle.
Since Poodles love to stay close to home, a Pyredoodle is much less likely to wander than a purebred Great Pyrenees. However, we still recommend that all Pyredoodle owners to have a fence. Great Pyrenees can be wanderers. Pyrenees are believed to have descended from huge dogs that wandered the mountains of Asia thousands of years ago.
The Poodles' non-shedding coat is hypo-allergenic. Because the poodle coat is the dominant gene, many poodle crosses (often called doodles) get the non-shedding coat. This is particularly the case with thick coated dogs like the Great Pyrenees. Families who want an inside dog appreciate a low-to-non shedding coat that the Pyredoodle offers.
The Great Pyrenees lifespan is usually 10-11 years. On average, doodles live 4-5 years longer than that. Hybrid vigor (the added strength by combining different breeds) causes doodles to typically be healthy. Because Poodles are far less likely to develop Gastric Torsion (bloat), hip dysplasia, elbow dysplasia, Addison's disease, or Entropian than Great Pyrenees, the Pyredoodle is much less likely to struggle with these health issues that are common in a purebed Pyrenees.
Poodles are extremely easy to train. They are the most frequently used dog in circus acts or on shows like America's Got Talent, because they are extremely intelligent, eager to please, and easy to train. Pyredoodles are much easier to house train and teach other basic training commands than a pure Great Pyrenees. Most Pyredoodle owners find their Pyredoodle puppy to be eager to please and pleasant to train.
The Great Pyrenees are known for their incredible watch dog ability, which means that most of them bark--quite a bit. We intentionally cross the Great Pyrenees with very quiet poodles. Although most of the Pyredoodles will be good watch dogs, they typically bark a whole lot less than a 100% Pyrenees.
By combining the Great Pyrenees with the Poodle, reliable breeders can be breed Pyredoodles in the typical white, the white/black badger look (with the mask), or other colors (poodles come in red, chocolate, apricot, and parti-colors). Pyredoodles can be bred with a variety of color combinations much greater than that of a purebred AKC Great Pyrenees.

These steadfast guardians usually exhibit a Zen-like calm, but they can quickly spring into action and move with grace and speed to meet a threat. The lush weatherproof coat is all white, or white with markings of beautiful shades of gray, tan, reddish-brown, or badger.
