We purchased our first Dogue de Bordeaux in 2000 and it was love at first site, also know as french mastiff puppies . Mojo was purchased from a local breeder and we have learned alot since that experience. He was the reason for our passion and to help with the betterment of the breed. Mojo had alot of medical issues and we lost him at a young age. We pride ourselves on Temperment and Health and we look at bloodlines before we put 2 dogues together.
After alot of research, Dorsdorf Monro D'Pre-(Bolshaya Sobaka) was the first dog we imported from Moscow Russia, he was a Bakervill's Style Viski son. That was the birth of Bolshaya Bordeaux. We have puppies for sale occasionally.
Responsible breeding, health testing and tempermant are the most important things. Whether you are purchasing dogue de bordeaux puppies to show or just as a family companion these priorities should be yours as well.
For Several centuries, the Dogue de Bordeaux (French Mastiff) was known in France as a terrifying watchdog. Since the 12th Century, Dogue de Bordeaux had been used to hunt wild boars, bears and wolves, in the Middle Ages, these dogs were used as cattle dogs. A huge head with numerous wrinkles, powerful limbs and cool composure are typical characteristics of this representative of the mastiff group, a descendant of the ancient Molosser. It has good proportions, a muscular body and a huge, round head which is the largest in the dog world. The coat is soft and thin to the touch, however it is not advisable to check this oneself. By nature, the Dogue de Bordeaux is rather lazy and at home and is like a huge cuddly toy. In experienced hands, the thick-skinned and powerful Dogue de Bordeaux is a perfect companion, watchdog and protector. A fully-grown dog can weigh up to 150 lbs. DDBs of proper temperament are sweet and sensitive souls. Owners appreciate their breed’s loyalty to loved ones of all ages, but also say DDBs can be stubborn and will dominate those who fail to apply firm training in puppyhood. When acquiring such a strapping super-dog, finding a responsible breeder is key.
