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.

Available Dogs

Meet, Louie! This 1.5 year old, Merle, male Great Dane has adorable, expressive cropped ears and is as sweet as they come. Unfortunately, his first family was not very nice to him and his most recent family did not have the time or money to give him the care he needed so he is extremely underweight currently.

Sometimes a little hope and love is all a guy needs, you know? I'm Amahn, a 1-year-old, male Great Dane. I'm a handsome boy, brindle-colored with mantle markings. I'm a tall drink of water, but unfortunately, I'll need some groceries to fatten me up. See, I wasn't being fed much of anything at my previous "home," and came to rescue with a horrible injury to one of my paws.

Meet our newest member of the BDHPI family, Mosby! This adorable mug is a 3 month old, Brindle, Mastiff Mix who is 28 lbs and growing with big paws to fill. We can't imagine how anyone let him go missing but he was found as a stray and when his time was up, BDHPI swooped in to his rescue. Mosby is doing great in his foster home with other dogs and children and as sweet as they come.

Hey Hey! I'm Drae, and I'm almost 4 years old! I'm a Great Dane, and I'm black with white markings. I'm a sweet girlie looking for a new home because my family was moving to town from the country and they didn't think I'd make a great city dog. I like a quieter environment and I get a little nervous with new situations.

Hey there, I'm Genesis the Great Pyrenees! I'm just 4-6 months old, and I was stuck at the shelter for 15 days after I was found as a stray. That was long enough for me... I'm glad to be in rescue now. I'm a typical puppy, or that's what the humans tell me anyway. I'm a little shy at first, and I'm great with other dogs. I know sit, down, and stay already!

Hi there! My name's Achilles, and I'm a 1-year-old, Fawn fluffy Mastiff or Leonberger. The good people here aren't quite sure what I am, but I'm a handsome fellow regardless of my roots. I'm huge for a young guy, and I'm good with most dogs of all different sizes, but I won't back down if another dominant male challenges me.

Hi, I'm Sarah. I'm a 4-year-old, 101 pound Blue Brindle Mastiff mix. I'm a really good girl in my foster home but my previous owners said I struggled with a little bit of fear of new things.  I'm an inside dog, and I'm trustworthy roaming around the house on my own. I'm crate trained and house trained - I can go 8-10 hours without a potty break if I need to.

My name is Shadow, and boy am I ever glad to be in a foster home with Big Dogs Huge Paws! I was scared to death at the shelter I was taken to. My family was evicted and they had nowhere else to go, but now I'm on to a better life! I'm a 5-year-old, female Black Mastiff Mix ready to give you all my love for the rest of my life!

My name is Zeus, and I might as well be a Greek God! I'm a 10 month old Daniff, and I'm Fawn with a blue mask, which I'm told makes me look unique! I'm very sweet, and I'm good with other dogs. I'm an inside dog and I'm already house trained.

Latte is a 6-month-old, Black, female Great Dane/Lab Mix. She weighs 40 pounds and is still growing of course. We don't know a lot about her yet since she was found as a stray and came to BDHPI from a shelter, but we do know that she's good with other dogs, and she's super sweet and cuddly. Latte is very well behaved for a puppy and walks great on leash already.

Duke has had quite the life for a 2-year-old Great Dane! He's Fawn with Merle markings on his mask, and he has a white chest, so he's a little big of a unique looking guy.

It should be elementary that you want to adopt me! My name, my dear, is Watson. I'm a 4 1/2-year-old, 170 lb, fawn male English Mastiff. My former owners recently had a baby and they work all the time, so I wasn't getting any attention at all.

Hey there, my name's Chayne! I'm a 4-year-old, Brindle English Mastiff and I'm here in rescue because my family is moving from the country to the city, and they won't have a yard or enough space for a big guy like me. I'm pretty sad to leave them, but I'm looking forward to my next great adventure! I'm house trained, leash trained, and I'm an inside dog.

I've heard that when one door closes, another door opens. Unfortunately, my former owner couldn't keep me, so I'm looking for that new open door to a forever home - could it be at your house? My name is Titus, and I'm a 3-year-old male Great Pyrenees. As you can see, I'm a handsome man, white with tan markings.

Hello, I'm Lola! I'm just a year old, white, female Great Pyrenees. I was living in a home with 3 cats and a 3-year-old small human, but the family was moving to a smaller home without a fenced yard, and I like to wander.

Babies - who needs 'em? Bah! My name is Hans, and I'm a 5-year-old, 100 lb, male Great Dane. I'm a sweet boy and everything was just peachy in my world until the new baby in my former family started crawling around. The boundaries and rules seemed to change, and I really got on edge because of this newcomer I didn't understand.

Chloe is a 1.5 year old, Black, Spayed female Great Dane. She is house trained, crate trained, leash trained, and is learning her basic commands. She is very shy and timid around strangers and it takes her a little while to warm up in new environments, but she is doing great in her foster home now which includes adults, older kids, other dogs, and cats.

Hi, I'm Buster, a 2-year-old, 143 lb, Fawn, male Great Dane. I ended up in rescue because my former owners were relocated and couldn't find a place that would take me or the other Dane that lived with me. We were kept outside at our house, and we didn't have any formal training there, either. I'm looking forward to learning what it means to be an inside dog, and I can't wait to learn new things and learn some good inside manners.

Hello, my name is Scooby, and I'm a 2-year-old, Merle Great Dane who weighs approximately 124 pounds. I came to Big Dogs Huge Paws because my former owner was being relocated and they couldn't find a place that would take two big Great Danes. I came in to rescue with my former housemate Buster. We were primarily kept outside at our last house, so I'm looking forward to learning what it means to be an inside dog!

I've heard the phrase "three's a crowd," but maybe six was a crowd in this case. See, I was living with five other Mastiffs when hard times hit my owners, and my male owner even passed away. So that's why I'm here at BDHP looking for a new pad. I'm Olivia, a 5-year-old female Neapolitan Mastiff. I guess you humans call my color "blue," and that's fine with me. I'm house-trained, leash-trained, and I know my basic commands.

With a name like Thor, you'd expect strength and protection, right? Well, at the very least, I can offer you companionship and slobbery kisses, I guess! I am indeed Thor, a 4-year-old male English Mastiff/Neapolitan Mastiff mix. My owner fell on rough times recently, so I've had to part ways with her (along with the other Mastiffs I lived with - you'll see some of them here at BDHP, too).

Good day, my name is Duchess, and I want nothing more than a home that will treat me like the royalty that I am! I'm a 4-year-old, white Great Pyrenees who is looking for a new home with a nice bed to call my own. I'm very calm, and was totally unphased by the craziness at the shelter when I was there and I am fitting right into my foster home with lots of other dogs.

Jessie is a 2-4 year old, Fawn English Mastiff mix. She's great on leash and will stick right by you. She was surrendered to a Humane Society and has been in at least a couple homes so far, so she is looking for a forever home this go round. We recommend she go to a family with older children only, but she is doing great in her foster home with other dogs and cats.

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.

Looking to adopt? Then keep your eye on the Birdie, please! My name is Birdie, and I'm a 1-year-old female Harlequin-colored Great Dane. My former family got me to be a companion for their Dane, but that didn't work so well and the dog was really mean to me. So here I am, looking for a forever home this time. I'm still a young gal, so I do that puppy chewing thing, of course.

Lola is a Fawn, Mastiff mix puppy who was born on 4/8/15. She has the darkest coat of her littermates and likes to sing the song of her people. She is the party girl who is always up for a good time! Lola is looking for a forever family who has lots of time to devote to raising and training a puppy properly.

Everyone calls me Champ, so I must be a Champ, right? This may be true, but I'm a Champ looking for a new family to care for me because my last family didn't do the greatest job of it. I came in to rescue weighing only 102 pounds, and I was very thin. Luckily they are working on getting some weight no me! I'm a real sweetheart though who just wants to give humans all my love.

My name is Rosie Posey, and I'm a gorgeous, white, fluffy 9-12 month old Great Pyrenees. I'm pretty small at around 60-65 lbs and my foster thinks my growth was stunted, but I am just about as cute and sweet as they come rumor has it. My former got me as a puppy, but unfortunately I accidentally killed a baby goat, so the family decided they couldn't keep me.

Stability in life is a good thing, don't you think? I'm Titan the Dane/Mastiff Mix, and I could certainly use a little bit of that from now on! First, more about me. I am only 9-months-old, checking in at just under 80 pounds and growing. Basically, I'm a big silly pup who would love some patience and training. I'm good with kids, dogs, and I was cat-tested previously and passed that exam, too.

I don't know how many dance moves I have, but I certainly have a unique, leggy style all my own! I'm Shakira, a black, 3-year-old female Great Dane.

Hi there, my name's Harley and I'm a 4-year-old, Harlequin Great Dane. I came to Big Dogs Huge Paws along with Charlotte the Great Dane because my former family was moving away from their farm and couldn't keep us big dogs anymore. I lived on the farm with 2 big dogs, and we lived with 5 kids ranging in age from 4-13 years old.

Hi, I'm Weezer! I'm a 3-year-old, 130 pound, tan and white Great Pyrenees mix. I'll admit, I am a bit of a chunky monkey right now but I am committed to my new weightloss and exercise program in hopes of obtaining a more svelt physique. My former owner had a stroke and had to give up me and the other dog who lived with me, but I think that was probably for the best, honestly.

I've always thought that patience and love work better than anger and roughness - don't you agree? I'm Ginger, a mere 1-year-old, female Great Dane, and I hope my new family has tons of patience and love! See, I've been bounced around a lot already in my life, through no fault of my own.

Hello! I'm Maxwell, a 2.5-year-old, Fawn Great Dane. I came into rescue pretty underweight - I was just 99 pounds and I should be around 120. I was surrendered to Animal Welfare because of an allergy in the family, but perhaps it was best for me in the long run, anyway, because I also had Glaucoma in one eye as a result of trauma and they had to remove my eye.

It's nearing the dog days of summer (see what I did there?), so how about something Chilly? That'd be me - my name is Chilly! I'm an almost-4-year-old female Great Dane whose owners had to give me up because they're going through a tough situation in their lives and aren't able to give me the time and attention I deserve.

Boo! No, not trying to scare you - that's my name! I'm Boo, a 7-year-old, tri-colored, female St. Bernard. I lived with a family that had young kids, but they just didn't have time to care for me properly any more, so here I am at BDHP. I'm house-trained and I know the "sit" and "lie down" commands. I'm trustworthy with free roam and I only bark when I'm playing.

Hoss here. I'm a big drink of water, checking in at right around 150 pounds. I'm a 3-year-old male Harlequin Great Dane. Don't let my size fool you - like most gentle giants, I'm just that. Gentle and sweet. I get along well with other dogs and kids and maybe cats. I will chase those felines sometimes, but I'm not really aggressive with them so it sort of depends on the personality of your cat.

After doing a little Wikipedia work (which isn't that easy without thumbs, you know), I found out that my name, Optimus Prime, came from the leader of the Autobot transformers. Optimus Prime is said to be awe-inspiring, selfless, and endlessly courageous. I don't want to toot my own horn or anything, but…   toot-toot! I am a 3.5-year-old male Mastiff/Rhodesian Ridgeback mix. Pretty impressive, huh?!?

I know Old MacDonald had a farm, but the farm life just gets me in trouble. I'm Winston, a 3-year-old male Great Dane, and those farm critters played a role in me being surrendered to rescue. I can't help it - they're just so fun to chase! Unfortunately, I did a little more than chase them, but I digress.

Boss, here...but my foster family prefers to call me Marshall! I am a 5 month old, Black, male Great Dane. I was hit by a car and my family couldn't afford the medical care I would need so they took me to the humane society who contacted BDHPI.

Hello there! My name is Eva and I'm a 3-4 year old, black Newfoundland/Great Pyrenees mix. I was taken to the shelter with my former house mate, Zero, because our owner died. When I got to the shelter I was a mess! I was so dirty that I had to be groomed right away, but now that I'm cleaned up I'm feeling better and ready to find a new family. I'm good with other dogs, great with kiddos, and really sweet around people.

Attention! Okay, at ease, peeps. My name is Commander Strax, but you can just call me Strax. No need to be that formal. I'm a 9-month-old male Great Dane, and here's my background. My former owners were in the process of training me to be a service dog. I lived with one of my litter mates and a small human.

You've probably heard a lot of dog names, but I happen to think mine is the best… ever. And the most fitting. I'm Betty Paige, and much like my pinup-girl namesake, I'm a leggy black-haired beauty! If only I could grow those trademark bangs, but we Danes are short-haired gals, you know. Anyway, I'm a 4-year-old female Great Dane.

Hi there, my name's Shango! I'm a 2-year-old, Fawn Boerboel Mastiff. I have some allergies, mild hip displaysia, and my left eye needs to be evaluated by an eye specialist. I was surrendered because my owner couldn't afford my medical expenses, and the vet felt a dryer climate might help out with my allergies a little bit.

Hello! I'm Harley, a 2-year-old, AKC registered Harlequin Great Dane, and I weigh 128 pounds. I know that sounds very impressive, but I don't like to brag! I have been under a lot of stress lately because my former owner left me with his brother when he moved and never came back for me. Unfortunately I developed Demodex mange, so I have some missing hair and some pink skin, and I also have nails that got way too long so my paws got pretty aggravated.

Sometimes, a second chance is all a guy needs. I'm Thor aka Atius, and I'm a 2-year-old fawn-colored Anatolian Shepherd. First I was a stray, then was adopted from BDHP, but my former owners couldn't handle some of my quirks.

Meet our new buddy, Mister! This fellow was found as a stray completely emaciated. Now that he has been sprung from jail, the first order of business is to get him fattened up! Mister is approximately 3 years old and a Fawn Great Dane with blue mask and ears which makes him very unique. He is very calm and well behaved overall in the house so he must have been someone's pet previously.

LeRoy here, and boy am I ever glad! Rescue is one of the best things that has happened me! Before I came here, I lived the first two years of my life on a chain. Talk about a lot of time spent inside my own head! But I'm free now, and living it up.

Hi friends, my name is Aggie. I'm a 1.5-year-old, Red Dogue de Bordeaux, and I am a pretty amazing girl if I do say so myself. I'm not really sure I fully understand why I am here in rescue, but I'm sure glad I got to come to Big Dogs Huge Paws! My family surrendered me to the Humane Society because they were moving and I guess they couldn't take me with them.

I've heard about that song where someone named Mandy got kissed and was needed. I think that sounds pretty neat! I am indeed Mandy, and I'm a 4-year-old female Great Dane. My former owner has a bad illness and could no longer care for me and my brother Great Dane, so that's how I eventually wound up at BDHP.

Howdy! I'm Catfish Kate, but don't make any mistakes - I'm no fish! I'm actually a 2.5-year-old, Brown and White Landseer Newfoundland! I'm a gorgeous lady, if I do say so myself, and I was released from a breeder into rescue. I know that sounds like something I should be sad about, but I'm actually thrilled because I got to come to Big Dogs Huge Paws!

Hello! I'm Trixie, a tri-colored Saint Bernard mix, somewhere between 1 and 2 years old. I am a mini-giant weighing 55 lbs but I have a huge heart! I'm house trained, leash trained, and I know sit, come, down, and stay. I'm also trustworthy with free roam. I ended up in rescue because I was a little too high-energy for the older dog who lived with me and my family didn't want me to hurt the other dog.

Everyone could use a little good mojo these days, don't you think? Well, here I am! My name is indeed Mojo, and I'm a 3-year-old black Great Dane/Doberman Mix.  I'm 110 pounds, house-trained, crate-trained, leash-trained, and I know the "sit," "stay," "lie down," "paw," and even "high five" commands! See - there's some awesome Mojo right there!

My name is Vivian, and I'm an 8 month old, white, female Great Pyrenees. I've had a rough start so far, and I'm really looking forward to finding a family that will love and care for me. I'll admit, I'm pretty insecure and would really love a person or family who is willing to help me build my trust and confidence in humans.

I'm Molly, a 4.5-year-old, Blue Great Dane. I've been moved around quite a bit in my life, and have had a litter of 12 puppies, so I have to admit I am ready to relax and enjoy life for the rest of my days. I was abandoned by my original owner, went to a temporary home where I had my puppies, and then was taken in by another woman who planned to keep me, but didn't think her living situation really allowed for such a big dog.

My name is Big Dog, and I have a bit of a sad story to share. My former owner used to breed English Mastiffs, and she recently suddenly passed away. That's how I found my way to BDHP with my friend Bella, and why I'm hoping for a happier ending this time around. I am indeed a big dog, and I'll admit I am a bit overweight at the moement!

I'm Bella, an 8-year-old female English Mastiff. My former owner used to breed English Mastiffs, and she recently suddenly passed away. So that's how I wound up at BDHP with my buddy, Big Dog, hoping for a cheerier ending. I'm a big, beautiful gal, and I'll admit I am a little on the chubby side currently!

Hello there! My name's Buster, and I'm a 2-year-old, white Great Pyrenees. I'm house trained and leash trained, and I also know lots of cues - sit, shake, down, wait, come, and okay. I don't dig or chew, and I'm a couch potato. One of my favorite things to do is to carry a big ball around with me. I love car rides, and am good with other dogs after slow, proper intros.

Hi everyone! My name's Journee, and I'm a 2 year old, 97.5 lb, Great Dane/Lab Mix. I'm a really sweet, mellow girl. I enjoy riding in the car and I'm leash trained already on a harness. I'm also obedience trained, house trained, crate trained and I'm an inside dog. You can trust me with free roam, and I will bark to alert if I think there's a good reason.

Hello friends! I'm Hercules, a 5-year-old, Fawn English Mastiff. I was released to Big Dogs Huge Paws because my previous owner was struggling to provide me with adequate care. I'm sad, but I'm sure glad to be here because I know I'll find just the right home for me! I should tell you before we get too far that I do have hip displaysia, but it's well managed without surgery so far.

Hi, my name is Zeik. I'm a 133 pound, 6-year-old, fawn English Mastiff. I was headed toward the Rainbow Bridge until a kind vet decided to try to find me a rescue. My family took me in to the vet to end my time on Earth because I had a little run-in with a visiting child in my home (I did great with the 4 kids who lived there).

Meet, Cupcake! This adorable 2 year old, Fawn, female is a Tosa Inu(Japanese Mastiff) mixed with a Great Dane and she is unique and wonderful! She gets along well with other dogs after proper intros and has come such a long ways in a few months. She lived previously with a Bernese Mountain Dog mix and unfortunately they both ended up at the local shelter after repeatedly escaping and their owner refused to fix the fence.

Hello out there. I'm Polo the 6 year old, male, Mantle Great Dane. I am looking for a new home, and I know my friends at Big Dogs Huge Paws are my ticket to the forever kind of love. My Great Dane sister Kiya and I were released by our owner because they were moving and I guess we couldn't go with them. I was a bit sad about my people not wanting me, but now I'm ready to move forward.

Herman here! I'm a 4-year-old, white and brown Saint Bernard/Great Pyrenees mix. I came into rescue with my two brothers because good inside dogs. I'm house trained and leash trained, and I know sit, down, and come. I will bark to alert, and only dig or chew on things if I'm bored. Overall, I'm a couch potato and not destructive. I'm also treat motivated, and I love bones, but I'm not really into toys.

Hello! I'm Lurch, a 4-year-old, white and brown Saint Bernard/Great Pyrenees mix. I was brought to Big Dogs Huge Paws with my two brothers/littermates because our owner was diagnosed with cancer and could no longer be around us. We enjoyed guarding our old property from coyotes, but we were also good inside dogs. I'm house trained, leash trained, and I know sit, down, and come.

Hello out there! My name is Gus (though the little people in my foster family call me Gus-Gus, you know, like the mouse on Cinderella), and I am looking for a place to lay my head, forever. I was living in an apartment with my previous owner, but after 6 years together, he decided I was too big and sent me to the shelter.
I'd like you to meet Harriett. She is approximately 8-10 years old (we hope the vet will be able to help us with a more accurate estimate of her age) and a beautiful, black, female Great Dane mix who we initially thought was blind but it turned out she had horrible entropion which has now been fixed and she sees much better.

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.

My name is Sammy, and I'm a 5-6 year old, tri-colored Saint Bernard. I'm here with Big Dogs Huge Paws because I had an incident with a grandchild at my last home, so I would definitely rather go to a home without small children. Other than that, I'm a really big, goofy guy who's really quite awesome! I'm good with other dogs - honestly, I'm pretty indifferent to them.

Hi new friends, I'm Gracie! My owners were relocating and I couldn't go with, so I got relocated myself - into the love and care of Big Dogs Huge Paws. I was sad to see my family leave, but I know I'm about to find a forever family and I'm looking forward to that! I'm a 4 year old, fawn, female Bullmastiff. I'm house trained, know how to use a dog door, crate trained, and know sit, lay down, and no.

Don't you just love peaches? So nice and pretty and sweet? Well, that's me for sure! My name is indeed Peaches, and I'm a female 2-3-year-old Great Pyrenees/Bernese Mountain Dog Mix, tan with white and black markings. I'm a big gal at 123 pounds, but I'm house-trained and I absolutely love belly rubs from you humans!

Good day! My name is Baxter, and I'm a 7-year-old, tri-colored Saint Bernard. How did an older gentleman like myself wind up in a rescue, you ask? Well, I was found running around with a German Shepherd friend and Animal Control picked us up. The shelter there didn't have a kennel big enough for me, so I hit the jackpot and got to come here instead.

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.

Hello, my name is Sweetheart! I'm a 2-year-old Great Pyrenees with a bit of a rocky start to life. I lived outside on a farm my entire life, and I just recently gave birth to 9 puppies. My owners surrendered me to Big Dogs Huge Paws, so now my life is starting over again and I can't wait to see what it holds for me! I'm good with other dogs, cats, kids, cows and other farm animals.

Hello out there! I'm Ludo and I've been on a two year quest to find my forever family. Two whole years with not knowing if this floor was the one I could rest my head on forever, or if I'd be taken away to another house. I'm a 2 year old, male, Tawny Neapolitan Mastiff. I have been bounced around to several homes so far in my short life.

Tiny may be my name, but it's certainly not my stature! I'm a 111-pound smooth-coated, Saint Bernard, 3-year-old, male. I'm here because there was an incident in my former home where I nipped a teenager I lived with, but everyone says it wasn't my fault, as he was trying to forcefully drag me out of a kennel to move me outside.

Phoebe the 5-year-old, Harlequin Great Dane here to say hi! I'm glad to be here with Big Dogs Huge Paws because I'm hoping I'll find just the perfect home for me. I was surendered because my owner lost her home and couldn't keep me. I do have some old injuries in my knees and arthritis, but I am not a surgical candidate and just need a daily anti-inflammatory to keep me comfortable and ideally a home without a ton of stairs for the long-run.

Angus the 4.5-year-old White Great Pyrenees here to introduce myself! I came to Big Dogs Huge Paws because I had trouble getting along with the other alpha male in the house. I did great with the girls and would likely do just fine with another submissive male. I tend to be a barker like many Pyrenees, and I also like to wander so would do well with 6-foot privacy fencing. I'm house trained and leash trained, and I know sit, stay, and lay down.

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. I don't bark, dig, or chew, and I'm not allowed on the furniture.

Hi! I'm Ava, the 2 year old, blue brindle, female Cane Corso. I'm looking for my forever family, so let me tell you a bit more about me! I've grown up with a pug and English bulldog for siblings, but my owner had to surrender me to Big Dogs Huge Paws due to financial difficulties. I was sad to see them go, but I hear this rescue does great things for sweet girls like me. I am house trained, crate trained, leash trained and I even know a few commands!

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 

Bonnie the 4-year-old, Black and White Great Dane/Lab mix here! I was found as a stray by my foster mom who nearly hit me with her car. I'm very grateful that she didn't hit me, and gave me a warm bed to sleep in instead! It took me a couple weeks to settle into my foster home. I was pretty hand-shy at firts and it took me a while to learn how to trust people again but as sweet as sweet can be now and just about the cuddliest dog you'll ever meet.

Meet Thor! He's a 4 year old, black, male Great Dane. He's a great catch, if we do say so ourselves - he's an inside dog who's trustworthy with free roam, he knows "sit", "lay down", and knows how to wait for his food. He needs some work on leash training because he is a bit of a wild child currently but with proper tools (Gentle Leader and Easy Walk Harness) and consistency he is learning.

Hey there, the name is Kai.  I am the cutest little ball of wrinkles you will find around here.  I am grazing the scenes of Big Dogs Huge Paws looking for a family to love.  Hopefully there is someone out there that fits the bill!  Unfortunately, the past 2 years have been rough ones on me.  My first family abandoned me for unknown reason.  Then I had to hang around the shelter which pretty much terrified me.

Hello there! I'm Zoe, and I'm a 5-year-old, Fawn with Merle markings, female Great Dane. I ended up here after moving between owners a few times. My first owner surrendered me to a shelter because they were moving to an apartment without the space for me. I lived with 2 small dogs who I did well with. Then I was adopted, but returned because my new owners said I was aggressive toward other dogs on walks.

Hello, big dog fans! My name is Tank, and while that moniker may fit my size, I'm actually much more of a softie in personality. (Shhh… don't tell anyone!) I'm a 7-year-old male Bullmastiff, and my previous owner unfortunately had some life and health issues that caused her to reluctantly give me up. So this Tank is looking for a new place to park... forever. I lived previously with two children and another dog, and I love them all.
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.
Named for a Greek goddess, I would be a heavenly addition to a family who would shower me with attention.

My Goodness!  This is all so new!  My name is Stella and my brother Kingston and I are new to the BDPHI group of dogs looking for love. The King and I were surrendered by our owner because they were travelling too much and weren’t around to give us enough time and attention. So here we are starting again! I’m a 4 year old, 106 lb, Brindle, Female, Great Dane and I am quite the looker if I do say so myself.

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.

Truman the Big Dog is setting the stage for an encore performance. After his debut with BDHPI, Truman the 5 year old, Male, Brindle, English Mastiff was adopted by a family for almost a year. Due to moving into home that only allowed them to keep 2 dogs, he was returned to Big Dogs with best wishes in finding his forever family.

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.

Everyone, please meet Eve - the luckiest girl this holiday season. Eve was rescued with several other dogs from a breeder who is being faced with neglect and animal cruelty charges. She is a 2-3 year old, Red, female Dogue de Bordeaux who is extremely emaciated at 80 lbs, as you can see in the photos. Fortunately, her skin condition is not mange, but a reaction to her emaciation and allergies. Two nights of Zrytec has already reduced Eve's scratching.

Our sweet gal, Krissy, is looking for her forever family. You know that saying, "good things come to those who wait"? This has become her life motto as waits with her foster momma, hoping her forever family will see her. Krissy has been waiting with BDHP for a while, but in that time she's charmed our socks off. Krissy is a sweet, senior, Mastiff / German Shepherd mix. Clocking in at a cool 95 pounds, she's practically pocket sized.

Meet, Bruiser! This big guy weighs 130 lbs and is a 7 year old Great Pyrenees with a great big smile that will warm your heart. He was picked up by the ACO who noticed he was limping badly on his right leg and his owner did not want to pay to fix it. He has since undergone surgery to repair the injury and is on the road to a full recovery now! Bruiser is house trained, trustworthy with free roam, and his foster family is working with him on basic training.

Hi! I’m Loki, that long-legged, beautiful, lady that you’ve been searching for. I’m a Fawn, 5 year old Anatolian Shepherd and I'm looking for my forever love! My family was going through some pretty heavy changes, like a divorce coupled with moving, and they felt that they couldn’t provide me what I needed, so they thought it better to help me find a new home. Don’t cry for me, because I know that there is new life on the horizon!

Maggie is a 2 year old, Brindle, Fila Brasileiro.

Bebe is a beautiful, 2.5 year old, Black, female Great Dane. She is epileptic and suffers from seizures but we have them well managed on daily medication.  She is also blind but after only a couple of weeks she learned her foster home so well you can hardly tell she can't see. Bebe is house trained, not destructive, and her crate is her safe place. She will often go in to take a nap when she is feeling overwhelmed or just tired.

Napoleon(aka Bourque) is a handsome, 2.5 year old, Fawn, English Mastiff. He weighs 150 lbs currently and is just about the sweetest boy you can imagine! He is loving, affectionate, and truly devoted to his humans. Bourque is leery of men initially, but he does warm up with time and treats. He is good with other dogs and is house trained, crate trained, dog door trained and not destructive.

Chaya is a beautiful, 2 year old, Brindle, Presa Canario female. She is very sweet, loving, and affectionate to all she meets and her back end doesn't stop wiggling. She is good with other dogs, but is a dominant breed and can be aggressive. She is doing really well in a stable pack of larger dogs at her foster home with no cats or small dogs. Chaya is great with older kids! She is house trained, crate trained, and treat and praise motivated.
