  • He starred as "Hooch" in the Tom Hanks film Turner and Hooch

Personality and Behavior

  • He's very protective of his home and makes an excellent guard dog
  • He's a very affectionate dog who likes to be close to you and who will become very attached to you
  • He drools - a lot
  • He's very muscular, strong and powerful
  • He patient with children
  • He's a mild-tempered and calm dog
  • He can be aggressive with other dogs or strangers
  • He can be very stubborn and dominant (pushing his weight around)


  • He's one of the most difficult breeds to train. You will need lots of patience as he is one of the slowest to learn obedience commands.


  • He sheds quite a bit of hair. You'll find some hair stuck to your clothes, couch and carpets.

Grooming / Maintenance

  • His short coat only needs to be brushed occasionally. However, because it sheds you may find yourself brushing it once a week, or more, to minimize the hair in your home (what you remove with a brush doesn't end up on the couch!).
