Dogue de Bordeaux
Dogue de Bordeaux information hosted by dog vitamin supplement provider BuffK-9® Supplements.
“Bordeaux are very powerful dogs, with a very muscular body yet retaining a harmonious temperament. The breed has been utilized in many different forms, from using their brawn to pull carts or haul heavy objects, to guarding flocks and used to protect castles of the European elite”
“Dogue de Bordeaux, also called French Mastiff or Bordeaux Bulldog, is longer in body than it is tall, and is a well muscled and stocky Molosser breed with a heavy, broad head, and deep chest, not appearing “leggy” in any way.”
“The massive head is a crucial breed characteristic. The Dogue de Bordeaux is claimed to have the largest head in the canine world, in proportion to the rest of the body” (“DBD”).
