Where did you rescue him from? Rescue bots can be the best. I have two lab mix rescues
There are several rescue societies specializing in Pyrs; SPIN and the Great Pyrenees Rescue Society working in the West. There are so many available for adoption - from puppies to seniors, purebred and mixes. I wish I could adopt more, but I have two and that's all I can handle.

Wow, congrats.
I am convinced that large dogs never consider themselves as big, while small dogs always know they're small. (Often enough true with humans too.) Nevertheless, one reason I like dogs so much is that they are ego free and always willing to show affection. Not true with cats.
There's a lot of love there. Wishing you both many years together.

I had a Leonberger for 7 yrs had to put her down last summer. She was a pure bred and was one of the most loving, furry and simple minded dogs I have owned.

The breed is of German origin and is a mix of Pyronees Mtn dog, Great Dane and StBernard.

One of my favorite funny memories of her was fishing S Fork Snoqualmie with her one hot summer afternoon. We were nearing an alder thicket (perfect place to meet a deer or black bear). I was intent on the dry fly action directly in front of me. She wandered approx 30 yards ahead of me and into the thicket. Suddenly I heard a yelp and she came pell mell downstream almost running me over and did not stop till I yelled and chased her down stream. Great protection she was for me. She was looking out for herself and had not one bone of protecting her owner.Like I said, she was loving but not smart and definitely not a guard dog. My big dog before her was a Belgium Sheppard/Lab mix and was completely opposite in intelligence and protection. I miss both dogs, but the Sheppard mix is the best dog I ever owned.
