Roxy the American Bull Dogue de Bordeaux at 1 year old—"Roxy it the most fun loving, Kind Bulldozer you could meet. I've recently had a baby and she's fantastic with her. She weighs a whopping 88 pounds (40kg). She's gentle loves playing with other dogs, but is also a lot more protective since I've had baby. She loves cuddles in bed. We've recently got another dog as she does like to destroy the house when we leave, so got a companion for her and so far it's worked. She is recovering from surgery as she snapped her crutiot ligament but it's been 2 months now and she's doing well. She looks different than most of the dogs I've seen on this website so that's why I thought I would share her pictures."

Description

The American Bull Dogue de Bordeaux is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the American Bulldog and the Dogue de Bordeaux. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.

"This is Cyrus the American Bull Dogue de Bordeaux. He has grown up quite a bit. He is 2 and a half years old in this picture, 50 kg. I have trained him from the get-go using much of Cesar Millan's philosophy and couldn't have asked for a better result—he is relaxed, excellent with other dogs and people but is still a fantastic guard dog; he will protect his property and his people until he is given the OK that the strangers are OK!"

"This is Dixie, an American Bull Dogue de Bordeaux at 8 months old. Her mother was an American Bulldog and her father a Dogue de Bordeaux. Her training has been completely done based off the Dog Whisperer Books and CDs. She is the best dog I have ever owned. She is great with children (my children are boy, 2 years and girl, 1 month). She has a well-balanced, low-energy personality, and is care-free of almost everything. She is great with other dogs, but not much of a guard dog...at least not yet. Her natural tendency is to be very bullheaded and stubborn, but the training works so well that these character traits are a non-issue.... I would recommend an experienced owner only!!! Her weight at 8 months is 94 lbs., and at 3 months was 39 lbs."

Meeya the American Bull Dogue de Bordeaux hybrid dog at 7 months old—"She is great with kids and very mellow especially when everything is settled around her. She loves walks, fishing for rocks in the water, and she loves snow. She has a great temperament; she is so excitable and loves attention, which she gets a lot of. She is good with other dogs. The hair on her spine raises when she is in a playful fighting mode with other dogs or feels threatened with some dogs. When she sleeps she snores and it can be a soft small snore to a loud snore. Her under-bite is pretty cute; it looks like she constantly smiles. She has a big personality and is a lot of fun."
