My boy Odin –  “Puppycreeks Inspiration in Motion At Premiere Roux” – finishes his championship at Purina Farms in June, 2018. What a beautiful representation of the breed in conformation AND temperament. I am honored to have him with us.

Hello and welcome! My name is Diana Cobb. I own and operate Premiere Roux. Some folks wonder how we came up with our kennel name. Let me tell you, I struggled for a long time with this because I am a very picky person. Naming my puppies is a challenge so choosing a name that would forever represent my Dogues de Bordeaux to the world seemed impossible. In the end, I decided on French simplicity. Premiere Roux translated from French literally means ‘First Red’. I felt this very much harmonized with my goal of owning and producing top quality Dogues de Bordeaux.

 A little about us, my husband Shane owns a successful construction company. On his days off he’s always working a new dog project I’ve come up with. We live 20 minutes from the Missouri/Arkansas border in the beautiful Ozark Mountains. The rural area offers an abundance of outdoor activities. Lakes, rivers for floating, hiking trails, and scenic views make this a great place to live. One of our favorite things to do is pack up the RV and explore a new destination. Since Shane and I do not have children, our Dogues de Bordeaux are always included in our adventures.

Premiere Roux is a very small Dogue de Bordeaux hobby breeder and exhibitor. We have invested a tremendous amount of time and resources into building our custom home and kennel facilities all under one roof. Every one of our Dogues de Bordeaux receive house time, couch time, play time, and cuddle time. Our dogs are members of the family first and show dogs second. Occasionally we have puppies for sale and from time to time have adults available. We also offer Dogue de Bordeaux stud service from our fabulous males. I raise my Dogue de Bordeaux puppies inside my home with love and attention. Puppy buyers and visitors are welcome to visit our home and our Dogues de Bordeaux in person.





It is my aim to improve upon each generation. I plan each breeding long in advance. Looking beyond just the book cover, I choose mates based on their compatible health, temperament, pedigree, and structural strengths and weaknesses. Therefore, I am just as selective when it comes to finding forever homes for our wrinkled bundles of joy.

Additionally, Premiere Roux offers lifetime support for anyone who purchases a puppy from us. You truly become our extended family. Our puppy buyers can certainly attest to that.

I find it absolutely necessary for anyone wanting a Dogue de Bordeaux to do their “homework” before acquiring one from a Dogue de Bordeaux breeder, or rescue organization. It is for this reason we have created a website that is designed to help educate individuals about the breed, not simply to sell puppies.

As a responsible Dogue de Bordeaux breeder, Premiere Roux will welcome back any of its babies at any time should their owners be unable to keep them for any reason.
