Pyrenean Shepherds originated in the Pyrenees Mountains of France where they herded flocks. They are the smallest of the French herding dogs. In the 19th century some shepherds found work herding flocks in America and brought along a few Pyrenean Shepherds. It's is believed they lent a helping hand in the development of the Australian Shepherd.
