uhg, sounds like a major bundle of health issues. pure breds should remain pure breds-if someone wants a mixed breed, please save one from the pound!

While I love both breeds, it wouldn't be my choice to breed together. 2 totally different instincts.

Both breeds look pretty much the same except GP's are big and white...and Goldens are Golden and smaller... Not sure what a GP's attitude is like... but still..

Why mix them? Why not just get one or the other??

I've never met a cross or even a Pyrennes in person but have seen the "Breed all About It" show on them. They do sound like a beautiful gentle breed. If your SIL does get the pup I would love to see pictures.

Seriously, I'm not sure this is such a great choice and I don't even know anything about them.

Well, they both begin with a "G"...






Great Pyrenees
(Working Group)










Golden Retriever
(Sporting Group)






But the similarity pretty much ends there...

a very close friend of mine had a Pyrenees X Akita (just recently put down) but she was a fantastic dog. so gentle and sweet, however her parents were bred unintentionally. Pyrenees are incredible livestock guardians & are real "gentle giants" but i am completely against breeding any dogs to create "designer dogs". the breeds have been kept separate for centuries for a specific reason.
