french mastiff Rano de l'Aube Rouge


      For several centuries, the french mastiff (Dogue de Bordeaux) was known in France as a terrifying watchdog. Since the 12th Century, french mastiff had been used to hunt wild boar, bears and wolves; in the Middle Ages, these dogs were used as cattle dogs. A huge head with numerous wrinkles, powerful limbs and cool composure are typical characteristics of this representative of the mastiff group, a descendant of the ancient Molosser.

      It has good proportions, a muscular body and a huge, round head (the largest in the dog world). The coat is soft and thin to the touch. However, it is not advisable to check this oneself. By nature, french mastiff is rather lazy and, at home, is like a huge cuddly toy. In experienced hands, the thick-skinned and powerful french mastiff is a perfect companion, watchdog and protector. If properly trained, it gets on well with children. A fully-grown dog weighs up to 90 kg.
