Juice seems interested in other dogs. So far, other than our resident dog Maxine, he hasn't meet other dogs face to face. He has interacted with the neighbor dog through the fence and seems very excited about her.
We would suggest no small dogs since he does have a high prey drive. Good with cats?
Dogue de Bordeaux (French Mastiff): Dog Breed Profile
He also enjoys chewing on bones and playing tug-o-war with a rope toy Juice is good at: staying in his crate, behaving in the house, making me feel safe, cuddling, playing Ideal home: quiet environment, fenced in yard Training Needs: leash training, obedience training Health issues: Just needs to gain weight Meet Juice: What can I say about Juice? We don't know much about how he came into the shelter in Chicago.
What we do know is that he was transported over the course of two day from there to us. It was a long journey for this boy!! Juice is very underweight but is slowly gaining through twice a day feedings. I would say a low key doggy pal would be great for Juice. He does react to other dogs barking. Right now we're not sure if it's more of a "I want to play with that dog" reaction or not. We are still learning him and him us. They were originally used for a variety of tasks and roles, including hunting big game and fighting.
It was here that they were first called by their modern name, Dogue de Bordeaux. These dogs showed up elsewhere in the world, including in the UK, in the late s. However, the breed was not recognised by the Kennel Club in the UK until much more recently. It is thought that breeding of Dogues in the UK was first carried out in the late s, and then revised to more modern standards in the s. Or at least one representative! In , the heartwarming family comedy Turner and Hooch was released. Following the successful film, the DDB breed soared in popularity.
The early Dogue de Bordeaux looked a far cry from the modern breed, as you can see in these pictures, shown below with permission from Jemima Harrison of Pedigree Dogs Exposed. Modern Dogues can grow to between 23 and 27 inches at the shoulder. Males generally weigh a minimum of pounds. And females generally weigh a minimum of 99 pounds! These dogs are built stockily, and rather low to the ground. They have large heads which are, in fact, proportionately the largest among dogs. Their features include short muzzles, expressive eyes, and loose skin on their face, often covered in drool!
Their coat is short, and the breed standard lists coat colors as fawn, isabella, mahogany, and red. They can also have a black or brown mask, and white markings or patches. The Dogue de Bordeaux is known by owners as a loyal breed. They are affectionate to their close family, and love to demonstrate this by spending as much time with you as possible. However, they can be wary about strangers. With a long history as guard dogs, they do still make exceptional guard dogs today. Because of the possibility that they may become over-protective, it is important that they be socialized and trained.
Of course, this is vital for any dog. Dedication to positive reinforcement training is important with this dog, as is socialization from the moment you bring him or her home. Try following a positive training program that allows all of his meals to be given in the form of treats. This will encourage you to stick to training, come rain or shine.
Puppy classes are a great benefit too. They will help your pup meet lots of different types of people and breeds of dog.

Frequent exposure could help them to feel more relaxed and accepting of strangers. Although the Dogue is a large breed, for health reasons it is best to give them several short walks a day rather than extended periods of intense exercise. They are a brachycephalic breed, which means that breathing may be an issue with an intense or sustained session of exercise. They will also benefit from periods of play in the garden. This playtime is a great way to bond with your dog!
Low-impact exercise, like swimming, is great for Dogues. This is especially true with pups under 18 months old, as it will minimize stress on their joints. For more information on specific training, check out our potty and crate training guides.
