Dogue de Bordeaux - The Glory behind this Legendary Breed
Its been almost a decade for me with this breed, and it feels like it's just been a year. They never stop surprising me every day. I have produced about 12 champions of this breed, they live happily with their new families in Kolkata, Goa, Mumbai, Khandwa, Manali, Delhi, Gurgaon, Noida ,Vijaywada, Hyderabad, Vadodra, Ahemedabad, Kunnur, Coimbatore, Chennai, Pune and many other cities.

I'll start the introduction of this Magnificent breed by refreshing your memories if you have seen the famous 1989 Tom Hanks movie "Turner and Hooch". Most of us came to know about this uncommon breed (even today) by seeing this movie. We saw Handsome "Hooch" ... who was loyal, self assured, territorial and Super Brave; who gave up his life, Protecting his Master and Owner. The Dogue de Bordeaux also known as the French Mastiff is exactly the same which you saw in this movie, except for the massive and exaggerated drooling he did in the movie. They do drool but not to the extent portrayed in the movie for comic sense. Their coat is fine, short, and soft. The color ranges from a rich shade of light fawn to dark red fawn and covers thick, loose skin. These are massive dogs that stand about 26 to 29 inches high and weigh from 50 to 70 kgs. They are imposing, haughty, and arrogant but lovable and eager to please. They have a high intellect with well-developed guarding instincts. According to Indian Climate they dwell best in cool shaded dwellings (preferably indoors) and must have access to fresh water and a nice clean dry cool area to relax. They are not the dogs which you can buy and keep chained in your porch area. Although the Bordeaux is a large breed, for health reasons, it is best to give them short walks a day rather than extended periods of intense exercise. They will also benefit from periods of play in the garden. It can be great for bonding and getting along with your dog if you use these times to play games that benefit their training, like "fetch". Dedication to positive reinforcement training is vital with this dog, as is socialization from the moment you bring him or her home at 12 weeks old.

They originated in France in Bordeaux region 600 or more years ago. Hence, the city lent its name to this large dog. Cats may have nine lives, but French Mastiffs has enjoyed at least three lives, having barely escaped extinction twice in its long history. They survived two brushes with extinction. The favored darlings of the French aristocrats, these dogs enjoyed a pampered lifestyle with their elite owners. However, when the nobles fell out of favor, the dogs did too. The breed was nearly wiped out when they were slaughtered alongside of their masters, and only a handful survived. It is Rumoured that Adolf Hitler made the second attempt at eliminating the breed. Enraged by their loyalty and devotion to their masters, he ordered the dogs of this breed to be killed in a large numbers. Stories published in many websites say that soldiers had orders to shoot them at sight. Many got poisoned and stabbed to death. Once again by the Grace of God, a remnant was saved and provided the base stock for the preservation of the breed.

Around 1910 they were classified into three varieties, the Parisian, the Toulouse and the Bordeaux, types which were bred depending on the region of France and the jobs they were required to do. The ancestral Bordeaux had various coat colors, such as brindle and a majority of white markings that carried fully up the legs. They had scissor bites in some regions, undershot in others; a big head or a small head, a large or small body; very inconsistent in type. Another controversial aspect was the mask, red (brown), none or black. The Dogue de Bordeaux of Bordeaux of the time also sported cropped ears. Regardless, it had a general type similar to today's Dogue de Bordeaux.

A uniform breed type of the Bordeaux Dog did not exist before 1920. According to the American Rare Breed Association (ARBA), the breed was revitalized in the 60�s and enjoys a renewed popularity today. During the 60s, a group of breeders in France, headed by Raymond Triquet, worked on the rebuilding of the foundation of the breed. In 1970, a new standard was written for the breed, with the most recent update in 1995. This standard is the basis of the standard written for the AKC in 2005.They are known for their massive head, fearless temperament, and powerful body. A devoted and affectionate family dog, who is sweet and docile, but can also be stubborn and arrogant. Patient, consistent training is a must, as is early and extensive socialization to prevent aggression toward other animals and unwarranted aggression toward strangers. They are superb guard dogs and are also capable of competing in many sports and activities, including carting, obedience, therapy work, tracking, and search and rescue.

From my detailed research I came across this very fascinating but less popular story of this breed. Around 1890 there was a French family who lost their riches and had no option but to move to the only land left with them near the dense forest and mountain region around 150 miles from Bordeaux . The family consisted of husband wife and two daughters aged about 10 years, They had a pair of French Mastiffs called ARMAND and ANNA. Once, on a chilly winter night, due to the wife's sudden illness, the husband took her to see the doctor who lived in the nearest village which was 30 miles away. He didn't take his daughters along due to the cold and freezing night and left them in the custody of their locked wooden home and the French Mastiff pair. Travel was not fast and easy in those days. So it took him almost 9 hrs to come back. On returning he found the window broken, Armand and Anna lying on the ground in guarding position all wounded and scratched with a lot of blood shed , and had the daughters behind them in their security. The girls were perfectly well, with not a single scratch on them, but with only tears of disappointment and pain in their eyes. That night 3 lone wolves had barged into the home through the window to attack and kill the daughters for their food, but Armand and Anna had protected them with their lives. Armand took his last breath in his owner's hand as if he was waiting and fighting with death to stay there until he arrived, so he could handover the custody of his masters daughters back to him like a faithful and brave soldier. He and Anna fought with the wolves, killed one, while the other two ran away when their leader died. They stood rock solid that night and fought with full glory to protect the two daughters with whom they had played when they were young. And that night it was a sacrifice of life, for the love and affection they were raised with.

This is the French Mastiff or The Dogue bordeaux for you. One who will love you and guard you and your children with his life. And I see this streak in my dogs' eyes everyday and this is what will make me keep at least one bordeaux all through my life.

At present I own three of them personally and have placed females with my friends, which can be used in my breeding program when and If I breed.

I have placed puppies in about 45 cities now with several satisfied clients. I am the first to home breed French Mastiffs and Saint Bernards in Madhya Pradesh.
