We have loved and bred Great Pyrenees farm dogs for over 10 years. They are known as the “Gentle Giant” because of their sweet temperament and excellent guarding abilities. Since we have owned Great Pyrenees, we have rarely had a predator loss on our farm.
If you are interested in owning a Great Pyrenees, there are a few things you need to keep in mind when making your decision.
Pyrs are large dogs and can reach up to 150 lbs in weight. Because of this, they eat a lot of food! Also, Great Pyrenees are best suited for life in the country. They can do ok in neighborhoods but need extensive training as puppies in regards to their boundaries. They will also need to be brought in at night since they are night barkers which makes for unhappy neighbors.
Pyrs will bond with whatever/whomever they spend their puppy hood with, be it animals or people and in that regard they are very loyal and excellent protection. Ours follow us wherever we go…:)
Finally, if you purchase a puppy from us and you decide later on they are not a good fit for your family, please understand that it will be your responsibility to find a new home for them. We do not have the facilities to house older puppies and/or dogs.
Pyrs are awesome, beautiful dogs but we want to make sure you know all the issues before you decide on a Great Pyrenees for your family.
At Autumn Creek Ranch, we are also starting a new venture in 2018 – Golden Pyrenees! This is a cross between a Great Pyrenees and Golden Retriever. We hope the cross will produce a protective dog with great loyalty which is more suited to a backyard or suburban setting. Stay tuned for more details!
Autumn Creek Ranch puppies are $750 each. To reserve a puppy, we ask for a $200 deposit. Puppies come with a complete health check but will not be vaccinated. We are increasingly concerned with the issues of vaccinosis and so are leaving this decision to our puppy buyers. If you are interested in learning more about vaccinosis, we recommend this site.
All of our puppies and breeding dogs are fed a fresh food diet of meat, bones, vegetables and bone broth to ensure they are healthy and well fed.
