Pyrador

Description

The Pyrador is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Great Pyrenees and the Labrador Retriever. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.
Kona the Great Pyrenees / Labrador Retriever hybrid at at about 8 months old. "I have had Kona from 10 weeks of age and out of his whole litter he is the biggest, despite being the runt. He weighs about 80 lbs at 8 months old and the vet thinks he will end up at around 100 - 110 lbs. He is also the calmest out of his brothers and sisters and looks more like a Pyrenees than they do, as you will see from his photos. His siblings have more of a lab face and are smaller in stature. I walk him from between 1 to 2 hours every day and when he is allowed off leash he runs around like a dog in heaven. He LOVES WATER and will stop and sit in even the smallest puddle. I also discovered he loves the snow. I'm still trying to teach him that he can swim but he's getting used to his size I think. He has a generally very mellow nature and is definitely bred from guard dogs as he guards me and the family constantly. He has a very deep, loud bark but is learning not to bark at everything. He loves people and other dogs and wants to be friends with everyone. I'm still feeding him twice a day but he doesn't gulp his food. Sometimes he even has to be encouraged to eat. He has a cream coloured coat, longer than most labs but nowhere near the length and thickness of a pure Pyrenees. He also has some of the golden tan markings of the Pyrenees along his back, tail and ears."
