Dogue de Bordeaux - Guide to Dogue de Bordeaux

Description: The Dogue de Bordeaux is muscular, powerful, stocky, athletic and structurally built low to the ground. The most distinguishing feature is its enormous head which is believed to be the biggest of all canines. The Dogue de Bordeaux short fine coat can be any shade of red and the color is darker around the muzzle and eyes forming a characteristic mask. The breed was mostly owned by wealthy French as well as nobility and were used to guard, hunt and fight.

As with many breeds, the origin of the Dogue de Bordeaux is up for debate and has numerous theories. There is little doubt among historians however, that the Dogue de Bordeaux is an ancient French breed. The first documented reference of this breed was in 1863 in Paris, France at the Jardin d'Acclimatation dog exhibition. A female by the name of Magentas won and was then given the name - Dogue de Bordeaux - which is the name of the capital from the region where she originated. In the following twenty years, there were three known varieties of the Dogue - the Toulouse, the Parisian and the Bordeaux - all named after the region from which they came. While these types had several differences from the modern Dogue de Bordeaux such as coat color, size and body structure, there were also many general similarities.

The first documented Dogue de Bordeaux to enter the United States was in 1959, although it is believed it arrived much earlier in 1890. The Dogue de Bordeaux was fully recognized by the American Kennel Club in the Working Group in 2008.

Color: The color of the Dogue de Bordeaux coat can be any shade of red.

Temperament: The Dogue de Bordeaux is affectionate, very loyal, devoted and has well balanced disposition. Properly raised Dogue de Bordeaux makes for a great companion and family pet.
