Sire Eemeli is officially measured 78 cm tall and Dam Elisabeth "Liz" is  medium size 67 cm tall. The pedigree is linebreeding to du Neouvielle, la Joie Blanche,  Alta Colina kennel dogs witch I love for the type and size. The inbreeding COI of this mating will be 6,09%

Echo de'Chien Elisabeth or Liz as she is called at home is a very beautiful bitch with correct construction, beautiful head and eyes. Originally she was sold to a breeder in Finland but I got the opportunity to buy her back. She hasn't been shown much but  the few shows she has taken part she has been very successful. Finished her Estonian Champion title very quickly with also a Group placement and was shown in Finnish Pyrenean Mountain Dog Specialty in big champion class bitches with placement 4th with res-CAC.

Meie järgmine pürenee mäestikukoerte pesakonna plaan aasta lõpu poole tuleb kombinatsioonist Echo de'Chien Elisabeth ja Varjomäen Eemeli. Seda kombinatsiooni ootame väga ja lootuses, et siit sünnivad ilusad kutsikad tugeva pigmentatsiooniga, kellele on hea luustik ja on kõrged ning suurepärase liikumisega. Pesakonna isa Eemeli on suur ja turjakõrgus mõõdetud 78 cm, pesakonna ema Elisabeth on keskmist kasvu emane turjakõrgusega 67 cm. Sugupuu on huvitav, mis tuleb liiniaretus du Neouvielle, la Joie Blanche ja Alta Colina koertele, keda ma jumaldan nende tüübi ja suuruse pärast. COI on 6,09%

Varjomäen Eemelil on kinnitatud Soome, Eesti tšempioni tiitel ja Eesti Võitja 2014 ja on võitnud kaks aastat järejest Eesti Pürenee mäestikukoerte erinäituse kohtunikeks Sue Hewart-Chambers, UK ja Renate Chioldi, Hollandist.

Tema sugupuu Soome Kennelliidu registris ja Great Pyrenees registris (esivanemate fotod). Eemeli on isa kahele pesakonnale: Soomes kennelis Varjomäen ja Rootsis kennelis Jaquibaz. Vabal ajal töötab Eemeli raamtukogus lugemiskoerana ehk lapsed kellel on vaja harjutada lugemisoskust loevad talle raamatuid ja tema kuulab. Eemeli Soome meedias: Lukukoira Eemeliin uppoaa kirja kuin kirja

Echo de'Chien Elisabeth keda kodus hüütakse Liziks on kinnitatud Eesti tšempioni tiitel. Esialgu oli Liz müüdud ühele kasvatajale Soome aga meil õnnestus ta tagasi osta. Liz on väga ilus ja tõuline koer, kes on osalenud väga vähestel näitustel aga sellegi poolest saanud oma tšempion tiitli kiiresti kokku ja sealjuures ka rühma koha võitnud. Soome erinäituselt, kus on väga suur ja osalejarohke emaste tšempionklass oli ta neljandal kohal koos res-SERTiga. Lizi terviseuuringud on tesotatud Soomes ja ta on terve: puusad HD A/A küünrad ED 0/0 põlved PL: 0/0 ja lisaks tehtud ka geeniuuring DM: kandja ja CMR1: terve. Lizi sugupuu Eesti Kennelliidu registris ja Great Pyrenees registris (esivanemate fotod). Tulevane pesakond on Lizi esimene. Liz tuleb toime kõikide loomadega; koerad, kassid, jänesed, hobused, laamad, lambad jne .... ning vabalajal tegeleb modellindusega, siin üks tore VIDEO Lizist (avaneb Facebook)

We are the guardians of the breed!

Something what has been on my mind for long time and this needs to be written especially today because of many signs today and because it's 14th of February a International Friend Day or as Valentine's day.


There are many Dog breeders and including myself but what does this means to you? You are breeder because you have a litter of puppies? I think its much more important role, I think us as breedrs are the GUARDIANS of the breed!

Definition of Guardian - a person who guards, protects, or preserves


As Guardians we take the responsibility of a breed to our hands to preserve this for the future as best as we can!  And I am sadden to see that there are people who act egoistic with the breed as if they own them. We don't own anything ... we are here on this Earth for a shortwhile with a purpose.

As a true lover of Pyrenean Mountain Dog I want to preserve the breed as best as I can and always looking for information about history, genetics, health, pedigrees and open to discussion about this breed to any fancier. I am passionate and I love the Pyrenean Mountain Dog breed.


I am trully greatful for the breeders and dog owners who shared important health information, open databases to help the breed for better future. But I wish that many more would talk more openly and not being afraid what others think ... because its important for the future of the breed and to work together finding best matings to minimaze the risks of combinations.


A successful litter is about information and luck! There is no way of guarantee of certain outcome in a combination because the inheritence of some genes can be trickly but it can be minimized when there is information. Information should never be used as to attack one another but just to keep open mind and learn how does the genetics work in some deseas. 


For bettter future of the breed let's work together!








When the perfect home for your puppy turns into breeders nightmare

The story of a beautiful male I love so much 

Every puppy I bring in to this world is with careful planning and when they leave my home I trust them to owner who will love them like I do and give them the best home possible. Most important of all that they love them for whom they are not what they could be! 


Brother of Conrad, Cameron, was sold to an owner in Sweden. She wanted a show dog and I gave her the most promising puppy of the litter. All breeders know we can not guarantee that the dog will be a BIS winner at the age of 2 months, when they go to new homes. But we see a prospect or then not.

As a breeder I have met Cameron's buyer half way any time it was asked for it - with keeping him longer here than normal, with payment terms etc. I have offered any sort of help any breeder can do. 

Cameron grew well, but suddenly, at the age of 1.5 years, started to limp seriously. I advised the owner to take care of the dog, what to do, which specialists to consult etc. She replied that they had done a 10 km walk... I tried to explain again how to keep the dog, but as she has had dogs for long, she did not listen.

At almost 2 years, this dog was diagnosed with hip dysplasia which is severe. I offered to purchase the dog back, as it was clearly not going to be of use to this person as show dog. She refused and kept on naming me in the internet and calling me a bad breeder. Today I learned that after I published problems in D litter with patella, she has decided that her dog has that too and again keeps implying me a as irresponsible breeder...

I have never gotten any documental proof of Cameron's problems and I read constantly complaints about him in internet. 

I am sorry, but if a person has done everything against my advise thinking they know better, then I do not feel responsible for misdoings of her. I am still prepared to take the dog back on the same conditions it was originally sold on, but she is not interested in that too. Every time the litter mates of her dog win somewhere, she complains of her dog's ill health and my irresponsibility. So I have nothing else to say to her, but say it in public - I do take responsibility of each dog I have bred. But I also request a person to be honest and follow the guidelines I give them. Cameron is always welcome back in our house as any of my puppies are.
