The Dogue de Bordeaux is also known as a Bordeaux Mastiff,French Mastiff or Bordeaux dog.The Bordeaux is a large french mastiff breed and is one of the most ancient French dog breeds.
A typical brachycephalic Molossoid type breed, the Bordeaux is a very powerful dog with a very muscular solidly built body.Molossers typically have heavy bones, pendant ears,a relatively short,well-muscled neck and a short broad muzzle. The massive head is a crucial breed characteristic,the Dogue de Bordeaux is claimed to have the largest head in the world in proportion to the rest of the body.
The Bordeaux has a good and calm temperament and is extremely loyal,patient and devoted to his/her family, while fearless and confrontational with strangers.Despite the Bordeauxs fearsome appearance the Dogue de Bordeaux is gentle with children and family members.However this is a powerful animal and is not suitable for an inexperienced dog owner.
