The Pyrenean Shepherd refers to two dog breeds, the long-haired Pyrenean Shepherd and the smooth-faced Pyrenean Shepherd. It is a breed of dog originating from the mountainous regions of the Pyrenees in France and Spain.

The Pyrenean Shepherd is a medium-sized dog (46 cm), well proportioned and muscular (12 kg). There are two varieties of the breed: long-haired and short-haired. Both varieties have a wedge-shaped head with lively, expressive eyes, ears that are triangular and carried erect or semi-erect, and a naturally short or bobbed tail.

The long-haired variety has a dense, smooth or slightly wavy coat, while the short-haired variety has a short, dense coat. The most common colors are black, fawn, gray and merle, often with white markings on the chest and extremities.
