THE ATHLETIC AND POWERFUL DOGUE DE BORDEAUX
Share the love
The Dogue de Bordeaux is certainly not a famous dog breed, but we firmly believe it is worth getting to know better, not only for its long and controversial history, but also for its countless qualities, all of which make this apparently grouchy and short-tempered dog an affectionate canine that loves being cuddled and kissed.
The Dogue de Bordeaux is an athletic and powerful molossoid with very defined bone structure and muscles. It has a very large, angular head, creased by wrinkles that give it an air of tough, experienced dog. Its coat can range from light reddish brown to mahogany or red; a Dogue de Bordeaux can weigh up to 55-60 kg – a respectable dog indeed!
Its first mention dates back to the Huns, but only centuries later, more precisely in 1863, was it officially acknowledged as a breed, during a canine exhibition at the Jardin d’Acclimatation, in Paris. Back then, these dogs were used as fighting dogs to help troops during wars, and they always stood out for being valiant and courageous.
Today, Dogues de Bordeaux are fortunately no longer used for these horrible purposes. But they are still protective by nature, and love keeping watch for their owners. Fear not: the character of this breed has been decidedly been polished and mollified over the years, and today they’re balanced, affectionate and very sociable dogs.
This dog is very agile in spite of its size and weight. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by its agility and sharpness during training, and keep in mind it’s also a champion of dirt track running and of plunging into the sea. Dogues de Bordeaux love the outdoors and being surrounded by nature. To make yours happy, just take him out for a walk – take a look at our model, XY, and at how happy and dapper he looks in our Giotto leather collar. These sturdy, massive dogs may look a little scary, so it’s better to keep them always by your side, with the leash on, at least while you’re among other humans.
Dogues de Bordeaux are very stubborn and self-confident, and can’t stand orders, especially when given harshly. On the other hand, they’re very precise, polite and very much aware of their own capabilities, which means they can distinguish their dos and their don’ts.
Large molossoid breeds are not easy to raise. If you’re interesting in having one, you must make sure you’re ready to stoop to some compromises. In return, you’ll surely receive a shower of sweetness and love.

All of our rescues are spayed/neutered, up to date on shots, heart-worm negative and micro chipped before being placed. Completed application and reference/home check required.

Bonded pairs may have a slightly reduced fee in order to get them adopted together, as decided on a case by case basis by the board of directors.

Are YOU the right owner for a Dogue de Bordeaux?
Can you provide what this breed needs?
- Someone home most of the day
- Fenced yard (6-8 feet high, not an electronic/underground fence)
- No other dogs in the household
- No cats in the household
- Restricted exercise when young – until maturity (at least 18 months old), exercise restricted to multiple short (20 minute) walks, fetch games, and playing with other dogs – no forced running (beside a jogger or bicyclist), no long-distance treks, minimal jumping
- Ample exercise after maturity – enough ongoing exercise that your Dogue de Bordeaux stays slim and is tired enough to sleep contentedly and not get into mischief
- « Mental exercise » – interesting activities that keep the mind stimulated, such as a challenging dog sport (tracking, schutzhund, carting, weight pulling); challenging dog toys; a homemade obstacle course
- An indoor lifestyle, except for exercise and bathroom breaks
- A meat-heavy diet, either homemade or commercial – meat is expensive, so people with less money should opt for a small dog
- An owner with enough money to treat the health problems Dogues are prone to (pet health insurance can really help here!)
- An owner who is okay with lots of slobbering
- Commitment to provide thorough socialization – introducing your Dogue to lots of people and other animals, diligently correcting any signs of misbehavior or aggression
- Commitment to establish the right Leader-Follower relationship with your Dogue de Bordeaux, teaching him to listen to you and do what you say

Where can you buy or adopt a Dogue de Bordeaux?
The Dogue de Bordeaux is moderately common in the United States. Out of 189 breeds in the American Kennel Club, where 1 is most popular and 189 is least popular, the Dogue de Bordeaux ranks 63rd.
Unfortunately, their popularity is largely based on their unusual appearance and perhaps the movie Turner and Hootch, which starred a Dogue de Bordeaux. That’s a real shame, because most people who acquire this breed with unrealistic expectations find them very challenging to live with.
Adopting From Dog Rescue Organizations
You might find a Dogue de Bordeaux available from a Dog Rescue group. Dogues may be turned over to Rescue because they require so much space, so much food, and so much clean-up, not to mention the slobbering.
Other owners give up their Dogue de Bordeaux when it becomes apparent that the dog is too much for them to handle. There may be dominance issues, or aggression toward other animals. You would need to provide these dogs with the exercise, training, and socialization that they are lacking.
Adopting From Public Animal Shelters and Humane Societies
Dogues are sometimes found here. But Dogue rescue groups do keep their eyes peeled on shelters and humane societies across the country, and if a Dogue de Bordeaux turns up at a shelter, the rescue group does try to move the dog into their rescue network.
Buying From a Dog Breeder
You can buy a Dogue de Bordeaux from a show breeder, who breeds Dogues to match a detailed standard of appearance for the dog show ring. You can also buy a Dogue de Bordeaux from people who « just breed pets » or « just had one litter. » But should you? Be sure to read the article to learn more about these people.
Here’s one difference between a responsible breeder and an irresponsible breeder – BOTH PARENTS of a Dogue de Bordeaux puppy should have:
- a certificate from the Canine Eye Registry Foundation (CERF) – dated within the past year – certifying the dog to be free of eye diseases
- a certificate from the Orthopedic Foundation of America (OFA) or PennHip certifying the dog to have normal hips
- a certificate from the Orthopedic Foundation of America (OFA) certifying the dog to have normal elbows
- a certificate from the Orthopedic Foundation of America (OFA) or a report from a veterinary cardiologist – dated within the past year – certifying that the dog has had an Advanced Cardiac Exam and has a normal heart
If a seller can’t show you those certificates, the puppies are higher risk for health problems. You might choose to accept that risk. But then you need to be willing (and able) to pay a couple thousand bucks for future surgeries and lifelong meds if your Dogue de Bordeaux ends up with hip dysplasia and heart disease.

Hi, My name is Smalls!
I am a fawn Male French Mastiff/Dogue de Bordeaux Dog. I am 5 and weigh 100 lb. I live in Fort Worth, TX.
There is a $75 adoption/rehoming fee. All supplies will be included.
This beautiful purebred Dogue de Bordeaux is looking for a loving family to offer him a forever home where he will be cherished for the rest of his days.
Smalls is just 5 years old, healthy, neutered and up to date on his shots. He is an incredibly loving dog; faithful, protective and very affectionate.
Smalls is being rehomed by his family. They are broken hearted to have to make this difficult decision, but with 2 full time jobs and a baby, they just do not have the time or ability to provide Smalls with the attention, exercise and care that he needs and deserves. They feel that it would be best for Smalls to be placed with a family in which he can be the center of attention!
Smalls perfect home will have a large, securely fenced yard, some great kids aged 5 and up, and people with lots of time to spend with him.? He would prefer to be an “only pet”, but if there is another female dog in the home, it should be OK. Smalls has never met a cat before, so how he would do with them is an unknown.
Smalls will bring all of his supplies along with him, and will provide your family with unlimited unconditional love, lots of licks, plenty of laughs, and a die hard protector of home and hearth.
Please offer Smalls a home today. He will leave VERY BIG paw prints on your heart!

Accessories Included: We will provide his crate with his bed, his leash, a toy that he has had since he was a puppy, and a bag of dog food. We can also email photos of him as a puppy. We can also provide vet records.
Smalls is a big sweetheart. He loves to be loved on and cuddle. He can sense if you are sad or sick and he wants to comfort you. Smalls has many traits typical for his breed. He is calm and loves to lay around. He is a great guard dog. He can also be stubborn at times. He does know basic commands: Sit, down, leave it, stay, go to bed (to go in his crate), go outside. Less is more with Smalls. He responds best to positive reinforcement. At the vet, he does best if they don’t try to restrain him, but instead give him treats as they do what they need to do. If he has something in his mouth that you don’t want him to have, offer a treat so he will drop it. He is not aggressive about his food bowl, and takes treats very gently. Smalls gets along well with kids 5 and up. He is kind of anxious around babies, and has not been around toddlers. He has not been around cats or small dogs.
Smalls’s Current Home Environment
We live in a house and have a big backyard. Smalls has lived here since he was a puppy, so he has always had a lot of room. Smalls is also crate-trained, so when we leave the house, he either goes into the backyard, or into his crate. We do not let him roam freely around the house if we are not here. We have another dog, a female lab, and he gets along with her. If it is a very hot or very cold day, we do not leave him outside for more than an hour at a time. It’s a good idea to have tissues or small cloths handy to wipe his drooly mouth occasionally.
Smalls’s Current Family:
We are a new family of 3. My husband works a lot, I am a full-time student, and we just had a baby.
Smalls’s Favorite Toys, Foods, Activities?
Smalls loves soccer balls, tennis balls, deer antlers, and stuffed animals, especially ones that squeak. We feed him Nutro Natural for Large Breeds Chicken flavor. For treats, he pretty much likes them all. He also loves peanut butter. We do NOT give him rawhide, because he has choked on it several times. He chews on it and gets it soft, then tries to swallow the whole thing and my husband has had to give him the heimlich more than once. Smalls loves to go on walks. He likes to run, but he is not a long distance runner. He is large and powerful, and requires a strong hand to walk him. He likes to lay in a kiddie pool to cool off in the summer. He is not a fan of hot weather.
Cute Smalls Story:
Once when I was sick, Smalls was trying to comfort me, so he climbed up on the couch and laid on top of me. He’s so sweet, but doesn’t realize how big he is.
Why is Smalls Being Rehomed?
With our schedules and a new baby, we are too busy to give Smalls the attention he needs and deserves. Also with him being so anxious around babies, we are not comfortable having him around our baby. We understand that is something that training can help with, but we just don’t have the time to devote to that right now.
Smalls’s Perfect Adoptive Home Will Be:
We are looking for a new forever home for Smalls. His new family should live in a house with a fenced backyard, and be willing to let him be an inside and outside dog who sleeps inside. They should have time to give him plenty of attention and take him on walks. Ideally they would not have other dogs or cats, but if they did have other dogs, then a female would be better.
