The Dogue de Bordeaux is a breed of dog that is a part of the Mastiff breed one of the most ancient breeds of dog that originates from France. The Dogue de Bordeaux is commonly also known as the 'Bordeaux Mastiff' and the 'French Mastiff.' The breed was originally bred and developed in the south of France around the city of Bordeaux and the city lent its name to the breed. The French placed an emphasis on keeping their ancient breeds 'pure' and a Dogue de Bordeaux with a 'black mask' on its muzzle is considered to have been bred with the English Mastiff. A 'pure' Dogue de Bordeaux will have a light pink nose, light colored eyes and a red mask. The Dogue de Bordeaux was originally split into two separate typings: the Douge and the Dougin. The Douge was the larger of the two typings and is what the modern Dogue de Bordeaux is based upon. The smaller Dougin typing is no longer in existence. The breed has a well-balanced, muscular and large powerful build. However despite the breed's large build, the Dogue de Bordeaux is set somewhat low to the ground and is not as tall as many of the other breed's within the Mastiff family. The breed has a short, fine and soft coat that comes in a variety of colorations. However, the breed's coat will commonly come in either a light fawn or a darker mahogany coloration. As a whole the Dogue de Bordeaux is known to be a highly loyal and affectionate breed. They make great household pets as they thrive in a busy household environment.
