This breed has a facial expression for every situation - especially if they want something from you...like climbing onto your bed!
That's where they will sleep like a giant 65 kg baby, with their head on your pillow. Just cover them with a blanket and they will be entirely happy!
Dogues de Bordeaux love their owners more than anything...watch out as they may even try to curl up on your lap! Their dedication to their owners makes them a very good guard dog. They are very vary of strangers and won't let anybody through the door who they don't like.
They may not be as obedient as a Labrador or Golden Retriever, but this doesn't mean that they are not smart. They know what to do but may hesitate as they are simply evaluating what is in it for them.
Oh, and you'd better love being kissed and not mind drool if you choose a Dogue de Bordeaux, because drooling is a given with this breed.
