Pyrenean Mastiff's can be pretty expensive, depending on where you get it from. They are very, very loving and affectionate dogs, but also very protective. And protective dogs usually need owners very capable of being the "pack leader".

The videos of Pyrenean Mastiffs make them seem like they would be very playful and affectionate. They are good with other dogs and they love to be loved. I had to write a 4 page essay research report on them and honestly, I have found NOTHING negative about them. !! Thats hard to find in a dog. Tatiana
