Welcome to us at Rouge Rubis!
This page is dedicated to the wonderful breed Dogue de Bordeaux.
I've followed this breed with great interest since 2003 when my first Dogue de Bordeaux was born. It was back in 1990 that the breed first caught my eye after I had seen the movie Turner & Hooch. It was the most magnificent creature I had ever seen and I decided then and there that one day I would share my life with a dog just like that.
The years passed and when my fiancé Totte and I found a house in a place called Paradise I knew a Dogue de Bordeaux would fit right in.
Between dogshows and tracking practise we take long walks in the wonderful surroudnings of Ryssberget, the mountain where we reside.
You can't know everything, but I am trying my best to learn as much as possible about the Dogue de Bordeaux. I've gone through a lot of books, talked to veterinarians, had conversations with friends and experts on the breed and I've learned a lot from my dogs. There are also things that I've had to learn the hard way :(
I think it is very important that breeders and admirers of the Dogue de Bordeaux talk openly about what comes with the breed, both the good and the bad.
My love for the breed have only grown since our first boy Manson moved in and it have shaped my life in many ways - bigger house, bigger car and a lot of wonderful friends all over the world! -The one who said money can't buy happiness, never bought a Dogue de Bordeaux :)
I hope you will enjoy your stay here at Rouge Rubis and if you have any questions about our dogs or the breed you're more than welcome to contact me!
