The imposing Dogue de Bordeaux was made famous when brought into the limelight by the film Turner and Hooch. The Bordeaux needs a confident owner with the time to train such a large dog, as they can grow to be 22″ to 26″ (58- 68cm) tall and can weigh between 99 to 110+ pounds (45 to 50 kg or over) and are immensely powerful. The Dogue de Bordeaux is also known as the Bordeaux Mastiff, the French Mastiff, the Bordeaux Bulldog or simply as the Bordeaux dog.
Dogue de Bordeaux puppies come in two colours, red and fawn, but may have a red or black facial mask. The short coat is easily maintained but for dogs who have wrinkled faces, they may need wiping daily to avoid any soreness. Bordeaux’s do not adapt to apartment living, they are best suited to a large house as they can be clumsy and send furniture flying when over excited. It is also advised to have a large secure garden for them to play, but as an adult they will still need to go on daily walks to maintain good muscle. Puppies under the age of 2 years must not be exercised too vigorously as it can damage growing bones.
A Dogue de Bordeaux can make a great family pet but are probably better suited to a family with older children as they do not always realise how big they are and could quite easily knock a young child over.
