About Us

The Pyrenean Mastiff Association of America was started by a group of individuals in 2022 to fill the need for a national Pyrenean Mastiff Club. We are a Texas Non Profit and a 501c3  with public charity status.

We are working towards AKC recognition, breed preservation, and education in the United States. We are a young club and are hoping to add lots of amazing features to our website but in the mean time please bear with us while our site is under construction. You can check out our blog for more information as well!

As of February 2023, Pyrenean Mastiff Association of America became the official AKC Parent Club for the Pyrenean Mastiff.

June 2024 the Pyrenean Mastiff will move to AKC Miscellaneous.

Club History

In December 2021, several Pyrenean Mastiff owners and breeders began to build a new club that would bring together pet owners, breeders and breed enthusiasts. This group of founding members worked intensely for 8 months with a focus on creating a club that would provide support and resources for those interested in the breed. The founding members worked to find and provide an extensive web-based tool set to help in managing the club, in supporting its members and the community. In May 2022, the Pyrenean Mastiff Association of America (PMAA) was formally made known to AKC after establishing itself as a State Non-profit and a Federal Non-profit with Public Charity status. PMAA began accepting members at the end of July 2022. The launch of the club was a success. Effort was made to show the community that the club would be doing its absolute best to bring breed education to the United States. By promoting various educational topics. The founding members began populating the PMAA website with information on all aspects of the Pyrenean Mastiff, including the procurement and translation of breed origin and history documents.
