The Dogue de Bordeaux originated in France. Bordeaux is a town in south-west France. Dogues are a French mastiff type of dog. They were used for the sport of fighting with other animals in a ring.
A dogue de Bordeaux has an intimidating appearance, with a large head and strong jaws, but they love the company of people and other pets. They are gentle with children.
Being a strong dog, training is advisable in the formative months.
The head is wrinkled.
Coat: short haired, fine.
Colour: any shade of red or blonde. The mask on the face can be red or black, with nose to match. White markings are permitted on chest and feet.
These dogues de Bordeaux belong to Mark H, South Africa. (Sorry - no contact details available)
If a dogue is made part of a family, he will guard that family.
There are times when we too have to guard our families from bad influences. The Bible says, "Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong!"
1 Corinthians chapter 16 verse 13
