Big House Bordeaux

Big House's Puppies

Just a hint of what I've done.  These picture show the consistency of puppies bred here at Big House Bordeaux.
ALL BORDEAUX OWNERS seem to expound diligently about their first Dogue, so why shouldn't I? He was a black face male who became part of my family in the late spring of 1986. His amazing love for children, his extraordinary intuitiveness and quick learning abilities both shocked and amazed me. I had had dogs all my life and had never met one like this.

In 1989, the first USBC National Specialty show was held and I was encouraged to participate. I had realized my boy was not conformationally sound, but felt compelled to make the journey to Chicago.

I had a picture in my head of what Dogue De Bordeaux should look like. My male was not the image I had. So, I began my education and search for this dogue.


Bonnie Gordon,
Breeder and owner of
Big House Bordeaux Kennel

Through the late 80's and very early 90's I had many puppies to replace my original male, who was supposed to be show quality. I finally settled on a male I named, Mugs.

Mugs developed into a Stud I felt would benefit the breed. His incredible temperament, his relentless drive to accomplish almost any task set before him and his overall conformation established BIG HOUSE. He produced many puppies over his lifetime until his death at age 10 in 2000. Many of his son's and daughters are still very much part of my breeding program today.

I realized very early in my breeding program that the best-laid plans could go astray. This is an extremely difficult breed to achieve the correct balance and correct head shape or size. I have tried to avoid kennel blindness, and honestly critique my breeding stock. I have researched and educated myself to all aspects of the Dogue De Bordeaux. I have been fortunate, over the years, to makes friends with people of influence within the breed who have allowed me to "pick their brains."

I now have put two decades of my life into the Dogues, it has been both rewarding and disappointing at times. The challenge of the breed still presents itself to me; I still carry that image which keeps me striving towards that ultimate Dogue


Sorry, all our puppies from our recent litter have been promised,
we currently do not have any puppies available,
but I do have an adult available.

My next planned breeding will be spring 2017. 
If interested in a puppy or if you'd like to make an appointment to visit,
then give us a call.
