World's Finest Bloodlines Available In Kentucky
We have imported directly from the Czech Republic and UK to maintain true European bloodlines. We are dedicated to preserving and improving this ancient breed. All of our dogs are fully health screened and results are posted on the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals website. We are now setting the Gold Standard for Health screening by having our dogs genetically tested by Embark for 160 conditions/diseases.
We currently show in AKC and IABCA events. Occasionally puppies will be available to approved homes.
Dogue de Bordeaux
Year Recognized By AKC: 2008
Breed History & Job Description: The oldest French dog breed, the Dogue de Bordeaux (“Mastiff of Bordeaux”) was around even before France was France. In ancient times, when France (then called Gaul) was a province of the Roman Empire, DDBs were developed as ferocious war dogs and gladiators. During their long history they also worked as cattle drovers, drafters, and guardians. The breed was virtually unknown in the United States until 1989, when a DDB costarred with Tom Hanks in the police comedy “Turner & Hooch.”
