In case you're interested in learning more about the Great Pyrenees breed of dog, here are some links to relevant sites.

If you're interested in getting one of these great dogs, I highly recommend checking with local rescues.  Getting a dog from a rescue is not always just inheriting a problem that someone else didn't want to deal with.  Wolfgang is a great dog, but he needs more attention than his first owner was willing to give him. (From the feeding hours listed, sounds like they left the apartment around 5 in the morning and often didn't return until the early evening.)

Additionally, consider the cost.  I've seen Great Pyr puppies going for over $800.  Add onto that price shots, spaying/neutering, food, training, toys, housebreaking, etc.  We figure Wolfgang's previous owner put more $2,000 into him in the 2 1/2 years they had him.  We got him from the rescue, fixed, and housebroken for $125.  (Big plus: didn't have to housebreak him.)
