No, they don't, as the Bouvier des Flandres. I know a woman who has had four of them. 9-10 years perhaps. And you cannot substitute one with another.

That breed was used as a trench dog during the last war and has the same characteristics as the mastiff, I think

The Bouvier is a Sweetie, although they can also be good guard dogs. I don't think their closely related to the Mastiffs. They are the biggest sheep herder that I know about.

BTW: The Dog in Starsky and Hutch was a Dogue de Bordeaux...

Dave,

No, but they may share some of the attributes. Add the film poster and pictures of a Bouvier and his mistress (you say - well, I'd have called her that if I had the luck :-)
