Adoption

Looking for a Home – Available Dogs

Many of the gentle giants that come into our rescue have been neglected or abused. Others have simply been abandoned by their owners due to a divorce, a new baby, moving, or natural disaster. We are often told that they got “too big” or “too expensive” and many of the dogs below come to us with very little training. Despite their past, rescue dogs are incredibly forgiving and very eager to please. They have so much to give and are all very special. We are looking for forever homes and permanent families who will love their new addition unconditionally and give them the love and support they need and deserve for the rest of their lives.

Boone is an amazing young man (3 years old) who has an impressive repertoire of commands under his furry belt - he knows sit, watch me, leave it, come, lay down (with a visual cue), stay, potty and wait (with a visual cue) however like most Pyrs, he is an independent thinker so he may need extra encouragement when practicing this impressive list of commands..but thankfully he his treat motivated! Of course he is also house trained, crate trained and leash trained.

Bullwinkle is a 2 year old, 130 lb male, tri-colored Saint Bernard. He has come to BDHP because his owner had passed away and he found himself in need of a new home and we were honored to be asked to help him on to the next stage in his life. Bullwinkle is great with other dogs and really enjoys a car ride, head out the window, ear flopping good time!

Boris is a big boy who needs a big couch to lay his fluffy self upon and be pampered! He is a 142 lb, 2 year old, tri-colored Saint who has lost his home due the passing of his person and he needs help to heal his heart. This sweet young boy is house trained and good with other dogs and he really loves to go on car rides and boy oh boy is he a show stopper - be prepared for all those "Beethoven" questions!

My name is Rosie, and given the typical Pyr breed tendencies, yes, I likely can run a few rings around things! I'm a 3 1/2-year-old, female Great Pyrenees mix, white with some cream coloring on my coat. My owners reluctantly had to surrender me when they had to move to take care of ailing family members, so I'm hoping to find a great fur-ever home now. I used to live with four other dogs and cats and kids of all ages.

Hello, I’m Diamond, a 10-year-old, tri-colored, female Bernese Mountain Dog. I had a happy beginning with my owner and my family. Sadly, my owner has lost his job and is unable to provide for my care. I’m a shy and submissive girl who has lived with another alpha dog and young children. Not only am I good with kids and other dogs, I’m also crate trained, leash trained and trustworthy to free roam.

I was born on 4/20/16 and my dad was a Brindle English Mastiff and my mom was a black Bouvier des Flandres which is also a big dog, males getting up to 120 lbs full grown, so I have big paws to grow into I am told.

Sweet Kondo the 8 yr old, fawn, male Bullmastiff has found his way to Big Dogs Huge Paws after a rocky past and we are delighted to finally get this boy on the right road to the home that will give him a wonderful time for the rest of his days. Kondo was originally brought to a shelter as part of a cruelty case in 2015 where he was adopted but was brought back recently after a man had found him as a stray.

Tashi is a 5 year old Tibetan Mastiff who is looking for a new home with her bonded brother Bruno. Tashi and Bruno came to BDHP when their owners feel on hard times and were unable to keep their beloved pets. They have lived with kids, dogs and cats and with gradual integration and proper introductions she has done very well with all the other animals and likes to play with the other dogs.

Bruno is a 5 year old Tibetan Mastiff. A what you may ask? A Tibetan Mastiff is a centuries old breed that was derived to form the perfect livestock guardian in the area of Tibet. Bruno and his sister Tashi came to BDHP when their owners fell on hard times and were unable to keep their beloved pets.

Tiny was surrendered to us because his owner was having health issues and was unable to care for him properly. We understand that this happens and we were more than happy to bring this boy into rescue to find him his forever home. Tiny is a 3.5 year old, brindle, male English Mastiff who already knows many commands and how to be a well behaved indoor dog.

Ms. Zsa Zsa has arrived and she is quite the girl! She is a 2 year old, blue Daniff (which is a Great Dane/Mastiff mix) and she is a wonderful dog who has impressed her foster family from the get go. This sweet girl was found as a stray but she is already house trained, crate trained and gets along with dogs of all other sizes as she's very submissive; she'll snuggle with whomever she can.

Hi there, it's Bernie (aka Bernard) the 1-year-old, male, Tri-colored St. Bernard. I was adopted a couple months ago, but my family felt I was too protective after I snapped at a few strangers that reached out for my head before I got a chance to get to know them first.

Porkchop (formerly Hooch) is back to find the right home for him to be successful in. He is a chunky, wrinkly, nubby tailed Dogue de Bordeaux/Bulldog mix who is 2 years old. He does have a cherry eye issue and while he has had 2 surgeries they haven't held so he will be seeing a doggy ophthalmologist to check out what further options we have for him.

Royal is the name and being treated like a King is my game....ha not really I just want a home that will love me forever and make me a part of their lives. I am a 5 year old, blue male Great Dane and I have found myself in need of rescue due to my family moving and not being able to find a place that would accept me.

Yabbadabbadooooooo it's Wilma the 5 year old, blue Cane Corso cooling my heels here with my awesome foster family awaiting my forever home. I'd be the perfect size for a someone looking for a giant breed that is a tad more on the 'pocket' size as I'm only 78 lbs but I can assure you that my heart is just as big as some of my furry brethren. I was found as a stray and when my hold time was up I got accepted into BDHP's program.

Twinkles Starlight, or Twinkles for short, sure lives up to her name. She is a beautiful, 9 year old, 82 lb, Landseer Newfoundland who was recently rescued from an auction where she was being sold because she no longer had any use for her breeder. We are delighted to be able to bring this girl into rescue and give her the love, affection, nutrition and medical care she has lacked for most of her life.
I'm pretty sure you humans here on earth need a little dose of Pluto, don't you? My name is Pluto, and I'm a 10-month-old, 75 lb, male, black brindle, Cane Corso. I was reluctantly surrendered by my previous owner when the other dog in my house didn't really care for my puppy energy and started attacking me. It wasn't fun, and I was just being a pup! Being energetic and running around - like the rings around Saturn!

How do you do, my name is Delilah (though I've been called DeeDee or Dee on occasion). I'm a 3.5-year-old, black, female Cane Corso who is so happy to not be a breeding pup anymore. I came to BDHPI to find that forever fit where I can laze and relax. I am house trained, crate trained and learning the tricks sit, down, stay, come here, leave it and paw. I'm also picking up leash training quickly with the handy-dandy gentle leader.

Miss Nessa is looking for her forever family. She is a 1.5 yr old, Merle Great Dane who is house trained, knows how to use a bell and a dog door, and crate trained. Nessa also knows many commands and with consistent practice and lots of treats she is more than happy to practice what she knows and we bet that she'd even be able to learn some new ones with time!

Jamie aka Etta James is our heavy hitter, Blue, female, Great Dane weighing in at 140 pounds. She would make a loving addition to the right person/family who understands a dog that might be a little scared and growl at strangers at first but given the right amount of love and affection, will make a perfect member to your team.

“May your thoughts be as glad as the shamrocks. May your heart be as light as a song. May each day bring you bright, happy hours. That stay with you all the year long.” Bobby the 3 year old, Dogue De Bordeaux comes to us as an unclaimed stray with an interesting history....this young man's microchip was traced to Ireland!!

Hi! Harley here. I’m a 3-year-old, Merlequin, female Great Dane. My parents moved cross country for work and school. Unfortunately, no matter how hard they tried, they could not find a place that would allow a Giant Breed couch potato. So, Big Dogs Huge Paws stepped in and they are helping me find my furever home.

Magnum has come to BDHP due to his owner being unable to provide him proper medical care and the training that he needs to grow into the healthy, well behaved giant boy he will become. He is a 10 month old, Fawn with Merle markings, male Great Dane. Unfortunately, Magnum has not had any formal training and has mostly been kept outdoors so his foster family will be teaching this big puppy his basic commands, leash manners, house training and crate training.

How do you do, my name is Cleetus! I'm a 7-9-year-old Mastiff mix. I have spent the past 5 weeks in Animal Control and let me just tell you how much I love the sweet taste of freedom! I am so grateful to my foster family for taking a chance on me and giving me a chance to enjoy the comforts of a home once again.

Mellie is a 6-8 week old, Fawn, Anatolian Shepherd/Great Pyrenees mix that is looking for love and a family of her very own! She is still a baby and will need a family with the time to devote to raising and training her properly. While puppies are a lot of work, this little lady has a heart of gold and will return the love you show her tenfold!
Miss Millie is a 2 year old, tri-colored, female Saint Bernard. She is with us to find herself a new home after having a rough start to life. Millie has had at least 2 homes that we know of and her most current owner recently surrendered her to a Humane Society who reached out to BDHPI.

Hoss is a hunka hunka burning love, this 3 year old, male Neapolitan mastiff is weighing in at a whopping 141 lbs. He is a very friendly, submissive boy who sometimes gets a bit anxious and might have some submissive urination but this is a behavior that his foster family will be working on him with to ensure that he grows into a more confident boy.

Hey it's Simba the 1-year-old, Fawn Mastiff mix. I'm hoping third time will be the charm to find my forever home. I was surrendered by my original owner -- no time for me anymore -- and sent to a local humane society. My most recent family had an older dog that wasn't very accepting of me, despite the fact that all I wanted to do was play.

Hi, Klister here. I’m a rather handsome, Merle, male Great Dane mix. If you’re looking for a 3.5 year-old, 90 lb pup, to quote Barry Manilow, “Here I am, I’m your man.” My owner gave me a great life, but now his situation has changed and his long hours at work mean he is unable to care for me the way he feels I deserve. He knows the good folks here at Big Dogs Huge Paws will find me a great furever home.

Lady Bug, the 6 year old, Dogue de Bordeaux has come to BDHP in order to find herself a forever home she can flourish in and be pampered. She is a bit of a smaller girl at only 85 lbs but as you've heard GREAT things come in small packages! She is a very calm, loving dog who loves to play. She enjoys being petted and have any attention paid to her. She is a wonderful example of her breed and a gentle giant.

I've heard that the name "Lobo" can be used to describe a wolf. Well, my name is indeed Lobo, but I'm far from a wolf! More like a big ol' cuddly sheep, I suppose. I'm a 10-month-old male Great Pyrenees, and I was found as a stray. I was so happy to be rescued. I weigh right around 95 pounds at the moment, and I'm eager to learn some new tricks.

I'm a Great Dane and not a hound dog, but my name is Elvis and I'm looking to leave my Lonely Street address behind and find a great fur-ever home! Yes, I'm Elvis, a 1-year-old, black, male Great Dane, and I'm a good-sized boy at around 100 pounds. My former owner was a senior who started having some health issues and was unable to properly care for a big, rambunctious young man like me.

I'll forever salute the boys in blue and respect them for all they do! My name is Cole and I'm a 4-5 year old Landseer Newfoundland mix. I was named Cole after Officer Cole rescued me from a ditch on the side of the road; without him I most likely wouldn't be here today. He picked me up and took me to the animal shelter who then released me into the care of BDHP and my wonderful foster mom.

I'm hoping that third time will be my forever home! My name is Zeus and I was transferred over to BDHP after being surrendered back to the shelter I was adopted from 3 years ago. My parents were getting divorced and for some reason I was unable to go live with either of them, so here I am, waiting again for that home that will be mine always. I'm a 3-4 yr old, 125 lbs Saint Bernard/Mastiff mix (it's the best guess and we're going with it!).

Hola my name is Itati and I am a 4 year old, Fawn, English Mastiff. I'm a rather large girl weighing in at 148 lbs but hey, that only gives you more of me to love! I've been a breeding dog my entire life and was kept outside because of this. I was fed a very low quality food and am very excited to become an indoor girl and put all of that behind me. My new high quality diet will have me in ship shape form with a gorgeous new coat before you know it!

Most people love their Nana, right? I'm hoping to find a home where I can find that type of love, as I feel I have a lot of love to give. My name is Nana, and I'm an 8-year-old, Black, female Great Dane. I'm a typical Dane in that I have been called "lovely and sweet" with the usual gentle giant temperament. I'm house-trained, kennel-trained, not destructive, and I'm a well-mannered mature gal.

Kiara is in the house! Hello all, l'm a 10 year old, 103 lb, Saint Bernard and I've arrived into rescue because of circumstances out of my control. I lived with the same family for most of my10 years but they were forced to relocate and they were going to euthanize me but thank dog that I was saved by a lady who wanted to make sure that didn't happen.

FeFe is a gorgeous, 3 year old, Brindle Boerboel mastiff that has a bit of a mystery life up until this point. She was adopted by a family 6 months ago and this relationship had all of the bright beginnings a pup could hope for but it was not to be. Her family fell on very hard times and they had no place to live and the dogs had to be surrendered to the shelter.

Hello young pups, I am Bailey and I am a 13 year old, Fawn, female Mastiff who is looking for some love, good food and a soft place to lay my bones. I was loved all of my life by my mom but she fell on terribly hard times and we had to leave our home. She had no where for me to go and was devastated by this additional loss; but I know she loved me and I also understand she had to take care of the three kids who I have lived with their entire lives.

I'm not an album or an opera performed by a rock band, but my name is Tommy and I'd love to rock your world with some Newfie love! I'm a 5-year-old, male, Newfoundland, black in color as you can see, and I previously fathered many litters for a breeder. I thankfully have those days behind me now (after all, these good genes can only be shared so many times, ya know what I mean?), and I'm ready to "retire" in a great new home.

My name is Addison, but my friends call me Addie. I'm a 3 month old, female Newfoundland. Some say I am a super fluffy, cute bundle of joy...others say crazy puppy with sharp teeth who has much to learn....I say it depends on the day! I was thankfully surrendered by my breeder to BDHP because I was born with genetic conditions called PDA, SAS, and Severe Pulmonic Valve Stenosis.

Hello-hello, this is Harriet the black with salt and pepper Great Dane Mix. I think I'm around 8-10 years old, but you'd never know it because I am young at heart and still love to play. I recently came back to BDHP because of some issues with the small dog in my home. I should  probably just stick with large dogs from here on out to be safe. I've been cat tested and did just fine with them, but I haven't had a ton of experience with them.

Salt here and I'm coming to BDHP due to some sad circumstances. My mama had to surrender me because my daddy passed away a year ago and she cannot afford our old house anymore so we have to part ways so we can both get back on our feet. I am a 4 year old, Harlequin, female Great Dane and I'm house trained, leash trained and an inside dog. I am trustyworthy with free roam and I only bark to alert.

I feel pretty, oh so pretty, so pretty and witty and bright! I am Callie, the gorgeous 3 year old merlequin Great Dane. Being a mature 3 year old, I come house trained, crate trained, leash trained, I don't dig or bark and I already know sit, stay, place, heal, down and shake. Surely you must be thinking that I could not get any better than this, but folks, let me tell you, I do!

Baloo, here! I'm far from a fictional bear, however… I'm a real-life adorable canine! I'm a 2-year-old, male, blue Neapolitan Masitff. I was originally found as a stray, so I'm hoping to leave my wandering days behind me and find a great forever home. I weigh right around 70 pounds now - far less than a bear, of course.

Hi, I’m Seamus (and no, it’s pronounced Shay-mus). I’m a 7-year-old, black Newfoundland (mature gentleman out of the puppy stage so you don’t have to worry about those antics). I’m back in rescue—though due to no fault of my own, I might add. My family is moving, and they were unable to take me and my fur sibling along.

HELLO! My name is Khloe, and I'm an 11-mo-old, tri-colored, female Saint Bernard. My family is moving out of state, and I can't go with them -- would you have a place for me? I've lived with children of all ages, so we're all good there. I tend to play a little rough with other dogs, but I really like them a lot and would love another big playmate to run and wrestle with or the opportunity to go to the dog park or daycare regularly otherwise.

Hi there, I’m Skye! I’m a 3-year-old, white, harlequin, female Great Dane. My sister and I came to Rocky Mountain Great Dane Rescue from Big Bones Canine Rescue. I have been with them a year now so my friends at Big Dogs Huge Paws are trying to help me out as well because us rescues should work together and I deserve a family. I’m mostly deaf and partially blind, but it just makes me all the cuter. I would do best as an only dog.

Hey, I’m Cleo! I’m a 3-year-old, white, harlequin, female Great Dane. I’m mostly deaf and completely blind, but that just makes me all the sweeter. My sister and I came to Rocky Mountain Great Dane Rescue from Big Bones Canine Rescue. I have been with them a year now so my friends at Big Dogs Huge Paws are trying to help me out as well because us rescues should work together and I deserve a family. I’m so ready to find a forever home to call my own.

Hi!  I'm Phoebe!  I am a 5.5 year old, fawn, female English Mastiff.  I was surrendered to BDHP because my previous owners couldn't give me the love and attention that I deserved.  Now I'm here to find my forever family who can do so!  I am house trained, crate trained, and leash trained.  I know some basic commands.  I love chewing on bones and enjoy going for car rides.  I do have a tendency to chew or dig when I get bored - I li

"In sleep he sang to me...In dreams he came...That voice which calls to me and speaks my name...And do I dream again for now I find...The Phantom of the Opera is there..." Well I'm right here actually, no need to keep dreaming, ha! My name is Phantom and I'm a senior, Merlequin, male Great Dane with bi eyes, meaning one is blue and one is brown, so I'm quite the handsome older gentleman. I was an unclaimed stray, can you imagine?

Hi, Bear here! Bear as in a teddy bear, not a grizzly bear!  I am a 2 year old, brindle, male English Mastiff.  I am house trained and crate trained, although I am trustworthy of free roam. I am not a barker, digger, or a chewer and am a total couch potato!  I am good with kids and most other dogs.  Upon meeting other dogs I can be fearful and bark - I definitely need proper introductions, but I warm right up. Cats are unknown creatures to me.

Hello there! My name is Cleo – I might not look Egyptian, but I can be very regal at times. I’m a 7-8 year old Great Dane/mastiff mix who can’t wait to find a forever family. My previous owner couldn’t keep me anymore because of a work transfer. I am house trained, crate trained, great off leash and know the commands sit, down and come. I definitely love being inside more than out and will only bark during play.

Howdy-do, my name is Frankie! I’m a 7-year-old, 106.8 lb, smooth-coated St. Bernard. I’m good with dogs, cats and kids – they’re all playmates to me and despite my age, I am still quite a playful guy. I love to run around with other puppies and get them to play -- I'm like a spry 4 year old! I am considered a total sweetheart, although I can be scared of strangers at first.

Hello there! My name is Athena, and I'm a 10-month-old, Blue, female Cane Corso. When I came to rescue, I was treated for Demodex Mange, but now I'm feeling and looking loads better! I'm already house trained, crate trained and leash trained, and I'm an inside dog. I am not a barker, digger, or chewer as long as I have plenty of proper chew toys. I have not been allowed on the furniture in the past.

Bee and Blake, Blake and Bee, where there is one there is the other! They are a bonded pair of fawn English Mastiffs. Blake is a 6 year old male who is a very friendly fellow. He is good on a leash, quiet and enjoys being petted all over. Blake knows basic commands and he's very easy to train and eager to please. He's a mellow, laid back guy who is good with other dogs and he always takes his treats gently.

Bee and Blake, Blake and Bee, where there is one there is the other! They are a bonded pair of English Mastiffs. Bee is a 7 year old, fawn female.  They found themselves in a scary situation when their elderly owner could no longer take care of them due to failing health. They were thankfully rescued by BDHP and have now found themselves in a much better situation where their health and happiness is our number one priority.

Hello there! My name's Fidget, and I'm a 7-month-old, 53 lb, white and Merle puppy looking for a forever family.

Hi, I'm Sissy, a 3 year old, 100 lb, fawn, female Mastiff Mix. I am 3/4 English Mastiff and 1/4 Fila Mastiff. I found my way to BDHP after being seized from a breeder.

Howdy! My name's Chunk, and I'm a 3-year-old, 114 pound, white and grey Tomjak. What is a Tornjak you might be wondering? You can read more about my breed here: http://www.dogbreedinfo.com/t/tornjak.htm. I'm house trained already. I'm good with cats, and other dogs. I mostly ignore others and watch from a distance in play groups but show no aggression. I'm also good with both adults and kids once I get to know them.

Rosie is a 7 year old, white with brindle markings, 90 lb, Mastiff/Lab mix. We suspect she has had a rough life and was likely a stray for a good chunk of her life and a mama at some point as well. She wants so badly to be with you and cuddle, but she just doesn't know how.

Hi all…Dozer here. I’m a 5-year-old black, Great Dane. I’m housetrained and know some basic commands such as: “sit” and “lie down.” I’m not what you call a “barker,” (what’s the point?), but I will alert you if need be. I like other dogs, cats, and kids too.

So I hear the term "gentle giant" a lot. I think that pretty much fits me, actually. My name is Ramos, and I'm a 6-year-old male gentle giant… I mean, Great Dane. I'm a black beauty, a big fella, and I'm even AKC registered. I wound up at BDHP because there was an incident with a young child in my former home - but I was provoked, and sometimes a guy can just take so much, you know?

I'm glad this rescue is called Big Dogs Huge Paws, because that's exactly what I am - a big boy with big feet. My name is Moose, and I'm a middle aged, male, Saint Bernard. I came from a tough situation where my owner could no longer take care of me, then I found myself living temporarily with five other dogs, but some of them are pretty tiny. Like really small. Being I'm a big fella, it was hard to watch out for them all the time, you know?

Hi, I'm Sadie, a 3 year old, Fawn female English Mastiff.  I found my way to BDHP after my owner became overwhelmed with personal issues and surrendered me to the local humane society. I was previously used for breeding, and I'm so excited to leave that past behind me!

Boomer is the name and getting loved on is my game! I am a 10.5 year old, Blue, male Great Dane. My previous owner died suddenly, forcing my mom to move into an apartment which didn't allow big dogs like me. I came to BDHPI with two very large tumors on my chest and foot, which have now been removed and I am healing up nicely and SO much more comfortable(they were both benign)!

Hi there, my name's Diesel and I'm a 2-year-old, Dark Merle, male Great Dane. I'm house trained, crate trained, and leash trained and I know how to sit! I'm an inside dog but I'm also a very active pup still.

Bailey is a regal, 7 year old, Tri-colored, male St Bernard/Great Pyrenees Mix. This studly fellow found himself behind bars at a local shelter as a result of his agility and protective nature which led to an incident with the neighbor's small dog after he jumped the 4 foot fence. He lived with a large dog previously and has been great with other dogs, big and small, since coming into rescue.

Hi, my name is Pearl! I am a 5 year old, light Merle Great Dane female and boy am I glad to be with BDHPI! You see, I was found as a stray and barely alive at the time. I was completely emaciated with mammary tumors and heartworm positive.

Diesel is a 1-year-old, Brindle, male Presa Canario that was found as a stray and taken to the local shelter where no owner came to claim him. He is happy to now be with BDHPI and doing great in his foster home! We recommend a home with older kids only because he isn't a big fan of anyone being in his face, is a little protective of his food, and is still learning his manners. Diesel is good with dogs, friendly, and very playful.

Howdy! I'm Bazooka Joe, a very large, Tawny, Neapolitan Mastiff who was found as a stray and was taken to a shelter. I'm an older fella at around 7-8 years of age, and you should know right up front that I drool - a lot. If you can handle that, I think we'll probably do just fine! But you probably want to know some other details, so I'll give you what I can.

Hi! My name is Henry. I'm a 4-year-old, Fawn, male Bullmastiff that weighs 122 pounds.  I love all humans and have never met a stranger.  I’m one of the sweetest cuddle bug’s you’ll ever meet!  I had TPLO surgery on both hind knees in Dec 2014 and May 2015 and now walk and run great! I'm allergic to chicken, breads, and pork.

My name is Bernie, and I am a sweet, shy girl that was found wandering around the countryside. A nice family was kind enough to take me in while they looked for my owners but had no luck so I ended up at the local shelter and I was very scared there. Now, I am happy to report that I am in a foster home and I am a honey once I feel comfortable with you, says my foster mom.

Hi, my name is Fifi and you may remember me...I am a 3 year old, Red, female Dogue de Bordeaux that was recently adopted and have sadly been returned to rescue. They didn't have a yard and found it difficult to always have to walk me to go potty because I can be a bit of a handful on leash and am reactive to other strange dogs.

Jacquelyn is a 5-6 year old, Tri-Colored, beautiful Saint Bernard. She was picked up by animal control after being abandoned and locked in a vacant house for some time. Luckily, a concerned neighbor came to the rescue and she now has a much brighter future ahead of her! You see, Jacquelyn was incredibly filthy and matted and the groomer had to shave her down completely and start over.

Hi! The name's Waylon, and I'm a 3-year-old, Red Dogue de Bordeaux. Let me start by saying, I have had a terrible start to life, so I am going to need plenty of patience, time, and unconditional love. I was rescued by a wonderful woman from a terrible situation... I was kept on a chain starting at 12 weeks old until now (I'm 3, if you didn't notice that).

Hello, everyone! I am Atilla, a 5-year-old male Bullmastiff. I was found wandering as a stray in Oklahoma just looking for my new forever home. My foster family has discovered so many great things about me since giving me shelter. I am good with kids, cats and dogs of all sizes--I've been around dogs from 5 lbs to 130 lbs! I've needed a little help with house training, as I've had just a few occasional accidents, but I'm coming around quite nicely.

Hi there, my name is Moses and I'm a 4-year-old, Tan & White, Great Pyrenees mix with a heart shaped spot on my back because I have lots of love to give. I came to Big Dogs Huge Paws with my brothers. We were all farm dogs who enjoyed guarding our owner's property from coyotes, but we were also house dogs. Our owner was diagnosed with cancer and could no longer be around us, so he was forced to bring us into rescue.

Say hello to our big, blue, beautiful, 5 year old, Neapolitan Mastiff friend, Lucinda! This sweet girl came to BDHPI from a breeder where her life consisted of baby making and not much else. Indoor living and being part of a loving family are new for her but despite her past, she is fairly outgoing and excited about her new adventures. Lucinda is living in a house full of other medium to giant canine friends and really enjoys their companionship.

It's going to start getting cooler soon - who needs a big, furry sidekick to keep you warm on those long, winter nights? I'm Sable, a 7-year-old, 88-pound, tri-colored Saint Bernard, and I'd love to be your snuggle pal! My owner had to surrender me to a shelter because of moving/landlord issues, so I'm at BDHP looking for a great forever home. I'm house-trained, crate-trained, and not destructive. Proper worldly ladies don't do those things, you know.

Hello there, my name's Grizzly and I'm a 4-year-old, 140 lb, Apricot, Mastiff Mix. I came into rescue with my brother Kodiak but we aren't necessarily bonded and can be placed separately. I'm a handsome fellow looking for a good home to call my own! I'm house trained, crate trained and I know sit, go lay down, back, and get down, but my foster family is working on leash training.

Hi! My name is Ursula and boy am I glad I found a place in rescue! It's so much better here than where I was! I was abandoned in a park right behind a shelter one day after the intake was closed for the day. I was only 85 pounds, very thin, in need of eye surgery and heartworm treatment. I wasn't in the greatest health and honestly I was feeling pretty low. But then I was saved, and now I know better days are ahead and I'll be getting the medical care I need!

Hi, I'm Griffy! I'm a 4-year-old English Mastiff, and I was surrendered to rescue simply because I was "too big." I don't know how to be anything other than who I am though, so I'm not going to apologize for my size! I'm a huge boy and may come across as intimidating upon first meeting a stranger, but I am a big softie on the inside.

Hello hello! My name is Harlie, and I'm a 9-year-old Harlequin Great Dane. My owner decided to move to Florida and didn't want to take me along. I had 3 owners previously, and honestly just want to find a wonderful family willing to love me for the rest of my life. I've got some senior needs, including some arthritis that is being managed through pain management. I'me house trained, leash trained, and obedience trained, and I'm and inside dog.

Penny is a beautiful, 1.5 year old, 97 lb, Fawn, Mastiff/Anatolian Shepherd mix. Her foster family is working on house training, crate training, basic commands, and leash training with a harness because she can get a little excitable. Penny is a major sweetheart to those she knows and trusts but hasn't been well socialized and will need slow, controlled introductions to strangers and positive socialization to build her confidence.

Hello! I'm April, a 10-year-old Maremma Sheepdog. I've had quite the life so far, and I'm looking forward to finding the perfect place to rest and live out my senior years! I've been living in a memory care unit at a nursing home for 4 years. My original owner passed away, and the facility kept me until a new administrator decided it was time for me to go.

Maynard the 7-year-old, Black Neapolitan Mastiff mix here! Boy am I glad to be safe with Big Dogs Huge Paws! I was being mistreated in my last living situation, so animal control seized me and I am so glad they did, because now I'm here and no one will hurt me again. Unfortunately, I tested positive for heartworm, but I made it through treatment and I am doing great now.

Hello there, I'm Bella. I'm a 7-year-old, Grey Brindle, female Irish Wolfhound. I'm here with rescue because my owner passed away. I'm really missing my owner and my Dalmation friend who lived with me, but I'm glad someone was willing to help me find a new home and I am doing great with the other dogs in my foster home and the tiny human who runs around the place. I'm house trained, crate trained, and leash trained.

Hello, all! My name is Avery, but I'm also called Annie. Go figure. Anyway, I'm a 5-year-old female Anatolian Shepherd. I was found as a stray, so my foster family will be further evaluating me and can give you more information. But basically, I'm a giant love bug! I'm house-trained and not destructive with free-roam. I know the "sit" and "down" commands, and I am good with other dogs, cats, and kids.

Hi everyone! I am Ruby, the 3 year old, female, black English Mastiff. I'm house trained, crate trained, and leash trained. I know how to sit, and my foster family will be working with me on my manners and more commands. I only bark to alert, and I'm not a digger. If you invite me to the couch, I'll snuggle up with you, but otherwise I stay off the furniture.

Hello friends! My name is Fezzik, and I'm a 7-year-old, Fawn English Mastiff/Bloodhound Mix. I've got some skin allergies and some back leg/hip weakness, so I can't do a lot of stairs, but other than that I am a pretty great guy. I'm house trained, crate trained, and leash trained. I know sit, shake, down, and stay. I'm an inside dog, and I'm trustworthy with free roam.

Queen of Hearts here and while I must admit that my name may give you the misconception that I'm not fond of those who disagree with me, let me assure that this Queen of Hearts is all about love!

Ruby, the 1.5 year old, fawn, female English Mastiff is the newest adoptable dog in the BDHP pack, and we're so excited to have her join us! Ruby is a sweet, submissive girl, but had a run of bad luck with her left rear leg. Ruby suffered a fibrocartilaginous embolism (FCE), which is essentially a stroke in her lower back on 8/27/14.

My name is Sally, and I am a Fawn, 5 year old English Mastiff. I have lived with a breeder all my life, outside and I haven't had much socialization previously. I understand I am being retired, which is good, as puppies kind of get old after a while. Not that I didn't love them, but, you know how it is. Anyway, my sister and I are now seeking a forever home, where we can live inside and have a forever family to love us.

Say hello to Moses. He won’t part the seas or bring you a tablet with words to live by, but he will be a loyal companion and promise you his undying love. Moses is one cool Cane Corso pup that is Blue in color and only 2 years old(almost 3).  Moses has been bounced around quite a bit since his original parents divorced and his mom had no place to take care of him.

Maggie is a 2 year old brindle Fila Brasileiro.
