The Pyrador, sometimes called the Labranees, is a cross between a Great Pyrenees and a Labrador Retriever. As a hybrid breed, it will inherit physical and behavioral traits of both the Great Pyrenees and Labrador, so we recommend that you familiarize yourself with both the parent breeds if you're planning to adopt a Pyrador as each individual can exhibit more characteristics of one parent breed than the other.
These dogs are known for being loyal, protective, and intelligent. These dogs are active and somewhat aloof owing to the Great Pyranees' herding instincts, so training might take some effort, but it is definitely worth it. A well-trained Pyrador is a highly capable guard dog and a very personable companion. This dog is very alert and will look after its loved ones, and therefore some protective behavior should be expected when an unfamiliar person arrives. Altogether, Pyradors are strong-willed and caring, and with the proper upbringing will be a wonderful addition to any household.
