About Joelle
Joelle is now Aust. Grand Ch. Bordogue Joelle! She is the first and only Australian bred Grand Champion bitch to be awarded a Best in Group. She achieved her final points on 15 September 2012 at the Allora Kennel Club Championship Show, with a Best of Breed and one of only three dogs shortlisted for Best in Group.
Joelle becomes the first Australian bred bitch to win BEST EXHIBIT IN GROUP! She achieved this at the Oakey Show Society Championshp Show under Ms G. Goller (Qld). She is only the second bitch in Australia to be awarded at this level at an all breeds championship show.
Joelle is an extremely promising young bitch from our Ben x Shelby litter.
She has outstanding structure, a broad chest, solid bone, great topline, correct harp-shaped underline and superb balanced front and rear angulation. She has extremely powerful movement with correct reach and drive, only seen in Australia in a few dogs.
Joelle has a pretty trapezoid head with correct closed angles, curved under-jaw and a good chin mark. She also has more wrinkle than she knows what to do with. She is one powerful, but feminine young lady.
Her show career to date has been outstanding.
She finished 2009 as the No. 2 Dogue de Bordeaux nationally, 2008 as the No. 1 Australian-bred Dogue de Bordeaux (No. 2 nationally) and the No. 1 Dogue de Bordeaux Puppy in Australia in 2007. She has consistently placed in the Top 3 in Australia since beginning her show career.
She started her show career by taking Baby Puppy of Breed (from 8 babies) at Toowoomba Royal under Mrs J. Beech (Can). Then at the Redcliffe Peninsula Kennel Club Championship show Joelle placed 3rd in the Baby Puppy Sweepstakes (from 45 baby puppies).
In her first championship show in Minor Puppy (the day she turned 6 months old), Joelle took a 9pt Challenge, Reserve Best of Breed, and Best Minor Puppy in Group.
By the time she had finished Puppy Class (at age 12 months) she had amassed 118 championship points, but had to gain the compulsory 25 points after turning 12 months to gain her Australian Championship title. She started Junior class in style with an 11pt Challenge, Reserve Best of Breed and Best Junior in Group. At her 2nd show in Junior she took a 15pt Best of Breed, (gaining the points for her title), Best Junior in Group and was shortlisted for Best in Group. The judge, Mr Martin, said she was one of the best Dogue de Bordeaux he had seen.
At 16 months of age Joelle took Challenge Bitch and Reserve Best of Breed at Toowoomba Royal under Mr B. Owen (Canada).
Although Joelle finished Junior Class on 3 June 2008, she still finished as No. 3 DDB Puppy for 2008, despite not being eligible to add points for the second half of the year.
Joelle took Best of Breed under European All Breeds judge Dr M. Levente (Hun) in 2008 with lovely comments about her structure and breed type and the fact that he felt she would be competitive in Europe. As Dr. Levente has judged the breed in Europe we were pleased to receive such lovely comments.
In 2010 she again received lovely comments from Ms M Talvitie (Finland) when she was awarded Best of Breed at the Beaudesert Kennel Club Championship Show. "I have judged many Dogue de Bordeaux and your bitch has beautiful breed type, just beautiful."
At 6 years of age, and not being in the showring for 7 months, Joelle can still mix it with the best of them. She takes Best of Breed and is shortlisted in the top 6 for Best in Group and is then awarded Best Aust. Bred in Group by Mrs G Garcia-Guitierrez (Mexico) at the Beaudesert Kennel Club Championship Show.
Joelle is a Best in Group and multi Class in Group winner, with 15 Classes in Group and over 1021 championship points to date.
Joelle's daughter, Bordogue Paige, at her very first show, takes Best Baby Puppy in Show. We are thrilled with the type, structure, bone and substance of this litter (with our Australian Champion male, Levi).
She loves being in the house but, like her father, she engages in mass destruction. She actively looks for the TV remote control and has chewed up several to date. She can easily take the toilet rolls off the holders if the doors are not shut tight and chews them in to a million little pieces. Nothing is safe with Joelle in the house.

Joelle was diagnosed with cancer on her 8th birthday, 3/12/2014. We lost her on 20 March 2015.
RIP Pink Lady. You did us proud!
