Merico, Yes, he is the same as the dog in Turner and Hooch. That Dogue's name was Beasley (main one, there were at least 4 in the movie). He was a Dogue De Bordeaux. He died in '92 at 14yrs old. He was 11yrs old in the movie.
He has gotten HUGE! I forget how fast larger breed dogs grow...This just reminded me that less than a year ago my 'puppy' was only 18 lbs, now she's at least 110 lbs. Thanks for sharing the pictures. I love the one where he is sleeping.
