    I wasn't familiar with the term "dogue de Bordeaux" but it's AKA French Mastiff.

    I see the answer that was first displayed has been corrected.

    Internet Movie Database (http://imdb.com) the online reference encyclopedia for everything about movies lists -- among hundred of other things -- cast members of all movies.

    Here's what they said about the dog (real name, Beasley) playing Hooch:

    "He was a Dogue de Bordeaux (French Mastiff), and Turner and Hooch (1988) was his first and only movie. He played the house-wrecking police dog who drank beer."

    My objection is to #6 -- I think that's a trick question.

    The word dog (like the word human) commonly refers to a specie of any age.

    Same here. I'd include Fear in that answer.

    All in all, I didn't do so bad- 13 of 15 right.
