Harley the Saint Bernard / Great Pyrenees mix—"We refer to Harley as our "big, goofy lump of fur". We rescued him from our local animal shelter in New Hampshire where he had just been sent from Indiana. He was a year old at the time we got him and his name was Moose. The interesting part was that he picked his new name. After we got him, we decided "Moose" was not a fitting name for him. While we were still driving home, we threw out names like "Apollo" and "Hawkeye". When I said "Harley", he started sniffing my face. I said it again after we tossed out some more names and he sniffed my face again. Harley it was and still is. His favorite things are belly rubs and car rides, especially to our local dog park. He gets along well with our 3 cats, especially Parker. She loves to rub up against him and give his paws a bath and he takes it all in stride."

Description

The Saint Pyrenees is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Saint Bernard and the Great Pyrenees. 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.

"This is Max, my St. Pyrenees. His mom is a pure Saint Bernard and his dad is a pure Great Pyrenees. He has a mask and a spot on the base of his tail the size of a grapefruit but other then that he's all white. His mom is a short haired St. and he has the double dewclaws."
