    What type of dog was Hootch in the movie Turner and Hootch? I've been all over the internet and have gotten conflicting answers. Everything from Neopolitan Mastiff to Pit Bull to Mastiff as if that is a breed in itself. I personally think he looks like a French Mastiff, but I didn't realize they were that big.

    LOTS of drool!!

    I remember when I'd just started my current job, I was getting ready to close up the shop and had just finished mopping the floor. A customer came in who breeds Dogue de Bordeaux's (beautiful dogs!) and she brought two of her dogs with her. They proceeded to walk around the store, dripping globs of drool all over the freshly mopped floor! I just laughed to myself and re-mopped the shop AFTER I'd closed ;)
