Hooch was portrayed by Beasley, a French Mastiff (Dogue de Bordeaux), and his trainer Clint Rowe made a cameo in the movie as an ASPCA officer.
Beasley made the French Mastiff breed more popular both as household pet and in movies and television.
This is a very old breed. The French Mastiff is powerful and strong and has traditionally been used to pull carts, haul heavy objects, protect castles, and guarding cattle. They are known for being vigilant and brave.
