New to the Westminster dog show in 2009

The Dogue de Bordeaux is the only newly-recognized breed eligible for competition at Westminster in 2009 and will compete in the Working Group. Believed to have originated in France more than 600 years ago, the Dogue de Bordeaux is highly regarded for his balanced temperament and imposing presence. The Dogue de Bordeaux, also known as the French Mastiff, Bordeaux dog, Bulldogue Francais, or most commonly among fanciers, as the DDB, is a fearless, powerful dog who excels at both guard dog work and companionship to his family. With a head that may well be the largest in the canine world, the Bordeaux is unmistakable in appearance. How cute is this? (Westminster Kennel Club / February 6, 2009)
