Despite being the girl’s grandfather, this man got quite the telling off when he approached his French Mastiff’s best friend in a suspicious way.

Grandad just wanted to prove what a good boy his Dogue de Bordeaux was by filming his reaction when he “threatened” his granddaughter. Well, we’re impressed.

Best friends

The little girl is seen playing in the yard, a French Mastiff trotting nonchalantly around her. Seeing that she didn’t need him, he eventually decided to go see what was going on in the house.

That’s when grandad decided to do an experiment: he wanted to see what would happen if he pretended to threaten his granddaughter. He starts to move his hands rapidly towards her, making low growling sounds.

Loyal and protective

Suddenly, the Dogue de Bordeaux appears out of nowhere, jumping in front of his beloved human friend. He growls and barks at the grandad as if to say “You may be family, but no-one touches my little girl!” He stands strong between the unsuspecting girl and her grandfather, not letting him anywhere near her.

We must say, this display of defence is intimidating, and we wouldn’t get any closer if we were in grandad’s shoes!
