Hooch the Movie Star

The large, lovable, drooling co-star in the Tom Hanks film, "Turner and Hooch" was known as Beasley the Dog and he was a Dogue de Bordeaux, also known as a French mastiff. The Dogue de Bordeaux is a very intimidating breed due to its sheer size and deep bark. This dog is an excellent guard dog and can be affectionate, but needs proper socialization and training from an early age to avoid any aggressiveness.
