The Great Pyredane is a mix between a Great Dane and a Great Pyrenees purebreds. They are called hybrid dogs due to their origination from two different pure breeds. The Great Pyredane is a large dog breed that stands up to 32 inches and weigh around 120 pounds. They are found in different colours. They are alert and gentle to their family. They are also playful with children and behave very gently with them. These dogs are wary of strangers.
The Great Pyredane is found in a variety of colours like black, black and tan, brown, blue, gray, red and white or a mix of these colours.
They can have a short and thick coat of a Great Dane or a long and straight coat of a Great Pyrenees or a mix of these two coat types.
The Great Pyredane is very friendly, loving, loyal and affectionate with its family. These dogs are very gentle and patient with children although, as with all dogs, supervision is necessary when playing with children. The Great Pyredane dogs are good watch dogs. As with any other dog, these hybrids also need early socialization and obedience training. The owner should establish himself as pack leader or these gentle giants can become aggressive and willful. These dogs are great family pets and very good watch dogs.
They should be trained NOT to jump on humans due to their large size and massive body. These hybrids may not be suitable for hot weather as their coat inhibits heat release.
They are easy to train as these dogs are eager to please and generally obedient. They, however, need a firm and gentle pack leader and consistent training.
These dogs are relatively inactive indoors and need a yard to play and run. They may not be suitable for little houses or apartment life and would be happy with large space to play and run. These dogs need daily long walks and play time to keep themselves happy and fit.
