Guess the Breed #2

Welcome to Guess the Breed number two! I thought for this one, I would pick a dog that we all know and love ... Hooch. If you don't know him, go rent the movie!


I love this movie and am always surprised when I run into people who haven't seen it. I tell them they have to watch it - it's mandatory for every dog owner.


For every person who adopts a dog that I foster, I tell them to watch the movie. Then I tell them that whenever their dogs do something wrong, to think of Turner and Hooch. Suddenly, life doesn't seem so bad, does it?


Hooch was a purebred dog, but do you know his breed? Don't cheat by Googling it!

I love that movie! It always makes me feel better to watch it and think, it could be worse!

I always thought he was a Mastiff of some kind? I have no idea though!

Ooooh, I didn't even think of dogue de bordeaux. Good catch ladies!

This is an easy one: Dogue De Bordeaux. A fellow member of the DTC has a couple. When they shake those big floppy heads, the spit ropes fly and have been known to attach to the ceiling forming spit stalactites.

Do you take suggestions on future "guess the breed"?

DogsDeserveFreedom said...

That didn't take long! I'll have to find a more difficult one next time ...

Yes, Hooch is a Dogue De Bordeaux.

There has been suggestion that the Mastiff and Dogue De Bordeaux were of similar origins but from what I was able to find in my searching, no one seems to know for sure.

Great guesses and suggestions!

ChrisJ ...

Good question. Sure I will take suggestions for future guess the breed posts! Just email me the suggestion/picture/etc so that no one will feel cheated.

I will add this info to my next Guess the Breed post.

Good game, I wouldn't have known. I did see this movie,but if I recall, it got kind of sad at the end.
