                                                         OUR  START IN THIS BREED 33 YRS AGO

 

Welcome to our site, we are one of the last foundation kennels left in the US that helped get this breed going. We have been in this breed for 30 yrs breeding only the Dogue De Bordeaux and no other breeds, we believe to give it your best  ,you must give one breed your all, . We already owned several dogues by the mid 80's and one male we owned Tutt of Norris place won a group working dog over 28 rare breeds from all over the world at the Cherry Blossom show in Washington DC, the producers of the famous movie Turner and Hooch, called me from Wendy Norris's home trying to buy him for the star role in that movie, but we refused, as at that time he was my only male,  in 1991 we imported our first World Youth Champion Oscar Van  Alcarinque, a king among kings. He changed my whole outlook on what a TRUE DOGUE should be. He is still today on most all sought after dogues pedigree's like Toezz and many other high profile dogues. I built my whole breeding plans after him, and still seek out dogues today with his lines on their pedigree's. We later added many more famous dogues along the way like, World Ch Idem, Murdoch  Bellmondo, Rano just to name a few, In 97 two of our dogues a male and female Ubu and Rose became World Champions themselves, the first two ever bred in the US. We strive for type sound  temperments, and the all around healthy dogue  that people are proud to own.  We were the first kennel in the US to be awarded the breeder achievement award from the parent club the DDBS, and also from the American Rare breed club.A dogue we were the breeders of Samson owned by a vet, was the first dogue with the parent club to pass all health testing, and receive a star awarded by the club, Two of our dogues produced the first AKC Champion of record with the AKC since being accepted in 2009, our dogues competed both yrs since being  accepted with AKC at the Westminster dog show in NY. The founder of this breed Raymond Triquet in France wrote a book a few yrs ago The Saga of the Dogue De Bordeaux and featured Jeager a son of Oscar in his book, he was the only US born dogue that was used. On the cover of that book is a dogue named Duke Jr he is also a son of Oscar that lived in Italy. We were very honored to say the least. We have people that have now come back for their third set of dogues from us. We have sold to movie stars like Mike Madson and  race car drivers like Dave force, to name a few. So if you want a massive boned large headed  dogue then email or give us a call we will do our best to make sure you get what you are looking for, as this is a French Mastiff . Mastiff,which means large . We try to keep that old type in all our stock. Our dogues have a long life span, some people have had them live to be 13 yrs which is almost unheard for the mastiff breed We stand by our dogues, and are glad to help with any questions during your ownership So if only the best will do then please call .PARK AVENUE Thank you for stopping bye
