The Pyranean Mountain Dog is a very old breed that has been used for hundreds of years by shepherds in and around the Pyrenees Mountains of Southern France and Northern Spain.

Known in North America as the ‘Great Pyrenees’, on meeting two-year-old Laker you can certainly understand why!

Kate Brewster, Dogs Trust Snetterton supporter relations officer, said: “No competition - Laker is by far the largest dog I have ever seen!

“A beautiful boy, Laker stands higher than some ponies and had to have a collar specially-made when he arrived at the centre.

“Laker came in to us through no fault of his own. He is a very sweet boy, absolutely adores people and loves to be cuddled.

“Always keen for a walk, Laker has a real spring his step for such a large dog and fortunately he is good to walk on a lead!

“Laker is looking for a home who have had experience of giant breeds and understand the time and financial commitment of taking on a dog of his size, as well as the space needed for his bed!
