Dogue De Bordeaux
The Dogue de Bordeaux breed developed in several different regions of France.
The Dogue de Bordeaux is a short and burly version of the Mastiff. It has a large, broad head, undershot jaw, widely set eyes and a furrowed brow with a somewhat stern impression. Its slightly jowly muzzle is short with distinctive folds. The ears are small in relation to the head, and the neck is thick and rather wrinkly. The Dogue has a deep chest and a solid, broad back. Its thick tail is carried low. The Dogue has a smooth, short coat that can come in reddish brown colors with a darker mask.
Healthy Dogue de Bordeaux can live as long as 10 years.
