A Great Bearded Pyrenees

That's a good guess.

Oh I found a dog that's listed as a Pyr/Beardie mix

Well, I don't have a clue. She isn't at all like any of the (many) breeds with which I am familiar! I'd like to become familiar with her, however!!! I agree with everyone who said she looks like a sweetie. Have you gotten to cuddle with her yet? When do we hear your opinion as to her breed (or was Bearded Collie what you meant)?

I was curious, so I looked through all the pictures I could find of purebred Bearded Collies. How do you think this one compares to the fluffy little adoptee of Wendy's friend? Do you think that Sophie's face might have the fluffy look from being part Bearded Collie? (I know more Great Pyrenees dogs since I have a Giant Breed dog myself than I do Bearded Collies. I had no idea what they looked like when they weren't groomed for show!)

It is very common for farm families to cross great pyrenees with other herding breeds. The goal is to get a dog that has all of the characteristics of the great pyrenees, but just doesn't roam so far. I would be very curious as to what a DNA test said.

ETA: Forgot to say that I think she is a great pyrenees x bearded collie maybe?

My first guess was a Tibetan Terrier.

And my first thought was a Briard mix of some sort. Would be fun to find out.
