Dogue de Bordeaux

Frankie has been an amazing addition to our family during such crazy times. The breeder drove 1/2 way to NJ to meet us in OH and it was flawless. This is my 2nd puppy from PuppySpot and we are delighted. Thanks PuppySpot!

Dogue de Bordeaux Characteristics

A specific breed for a specific type of owner, the Dogue de Bordeaux is loyal, territorial, and stubborn. These dogs require a substantial amount of early socialization and obedience training, but if you’re an experienced pet owner looking for a unique companion, this may be the breed for you.

  • Size Large
  • Trainability Willful

The oldest recorded French breed, the Dogue de Bordeaux (which translates to "Mastiff of Bordeaux") has been bred for well over 600 years. These dogs were originally used to assist soldiers in war and pull heavy carts but now are more commonly found as household companions and guard dogs.
 
Though they have a naturally sweet temperament and disposition, the Dogue de Bordeaux can make a world-class guard dog when required. Using their imposing stature as the first measure of defense against intruders, these dogs are loyal to their families and will do anything to protect them. The Bordeaux is often seen with a fawn or red coat. Standing between 23-27 inches at the shoulder and weighing between 100-160 pounds, these dogs can not only walk the walk, but they can talk the talk.
 
These dogs are often victims of poor breeding practices. Research your breeder thoroughly to ensure they screen their puppies for common ailments (bloat is a very common health issue with the Dogue de Bordeaux) and be sure to acquire all necessary certifications. These dogs are prone to overeating and require moderate exercise and regulated feedings to ensure they maintain a healthy weight.
