Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

Characterised by the largest, most magnificent head in dogdom and layered wrinkles on its face and hefty exaggerated paws, the Dogue de Bordeaux trudges into the hearts of people throughout the world. Originally used for cattle droving and guarding the vineyards in Bordeaux, this pugnacious, pug-faced French warrior has survived within a hair of its extinction through one national revolution, two World Wars, and a Hollywood adventure Turner and Hooch. Sometimes referred to as the French Mastiff, Bordeaux Bulldog or simply 'DDB', the Dogue de Bordeaux has had an interesting background and development through the last five centuries. An extremely cooperative, intelligent, and fearless giant, the Dogue de Bordeaux has persisted in various vocations throughout the centuries, a testament to the breed's versatility and adaptability. Since the 1400s, the Dogue de Bordeaux has had many jobs: herding cattle, flock guarding, hunting ferocious game, animal baiting, dog fighting and film acting. Powerful and surprisingly athletic, the Dogue de Bordeaux had never been intimidated and makes an excellent guardian. Beneath all that toughness, exists a sweet, sincere, slobberingly loveable character that makes a wonderful companion.

We purchased this book, prior to buying our puppy, in order to get an insight into a breed we knew little about. It was a very informative read, with lots of helpful tips and advice. All in all, a very useful handbook for reference into many aspects of owning one of the the greatest dog breeds. A MUST for any potential Dogue owner!

A very enjoyable book for someone like me who has never owned this breed of dog, very well illustrated and not mind bendingly indepth. A good book for someone who is interested in mastiff type breeds.

This book has been very well put together and gives the reader a chance to see many colourful pictures of this old and wonderful breed . I feel that the book has been put together as an introduction to a breed. It by no means goes into to much detail , but gives enough infomation for the reader to have a very good idea as to what this breed of dog should look and act like . thumbs up
