I have owned four Dogue De Bordeaux dogs during my life. I showed them extensively. All three were large, calm, and loving. However, they also had strong guard dog tendencies and even with socialization, they remained leery of strangers. One of my dogs never liked small dogs and I always had to watch him closely. However, the other two adored all dogs.
Dogue's are wonderful but they do drool excessively, especially in hot and humid climates. They do not like cold weather and will typically not enjoy going outdoors if it is raining or snowing.
