Dear AKC: Why haven't Dogue de Bordeaux's been recognized by the AKC? These "dogues" are just plain brilliant, loyal and beautiful to show! Wherever and whenever I take out my "dogues" people just go nuts. They're a crowd pleaser for sure. -- Dogue Lover
Dear Dogue: Currently, the Dogue De Bordeaux is enrolled in the AKC's Foundation Stock Service and participates in the Miscellaneous Class at AKC Events. Each breed that seeks full AKC recognition must go though a process that shows the commitment of breed fanciers in America. Your breed is slated for full recognition in 2008.
