The Pyrenean Mastiff is rugged enough to weather extremes of climate, though he prefers to be indoors with his family, to whom he is fiercely devoted. Towering at over 32 inches at the shoulder, the adult Pyrenean Mastiff offers expert protection for home and property, given his fantastic bravery and natural aloofness to strangers. Owners prize this noble breeds calm, confident demeanor and its superior intelligence and affectionate temperament. The first book of its kind in English, this Special Rare-Breed Edition serves as a comprehensive introduction to the Pyrenean Mastiff, written by Spanish breed fancier, Christina de Lima-Netto, who provides an insightful look at the breeds characteristics and the Spanish breed standard. The author provides a thorough history of the breed in its native Spain as well as in the US, where the breed has begun to win new admirers. In detailing the breeds history, the author rightly credits Rafael Malo as the savior of the modern breed and the man responsible for promoting the breed internationally through his La Tajadera del Tio Roy kennel. Illustrated with over 135 color photographs, the book also presents sound and useful advice about puppy selection, house-training, feeding, coat care, health concerns, obedience training, behavior and more.
