Adoption

Giant Breeds Currently in Rescue

Many of the gentle giants that come to Big Dogs Huge Paws have been neglected, abused or found as strays & out of time at a shelter. Others have simply been abandoned by their owners due to a divorce, new baby, moving -- to name a few. Many who surrender their dogs tell us they are “too big” or “too expensive." Some of the dogs coming into rescue are well-trained and well-behaved, but others need the time and patience to grow. Despite their past, giant breed dogs are incredibly forgiving and eager to please. They have so much love to give and are all very special. We are looking to place these amazing dogs in forever homes with families who will love the pup unconditionally and give them the love and support they need for the rest of their lives.

Quick overview on terms:

  • New to rescue - under evaulation: We are still evaluating this dog's special needs in terms of medical care, behavioral issues and temperament/personality. You are welcome to get on their waitlist. You will be notified when they are ready for adoption if/when it is your turn. If you see a pending adoption appear on a dog you are waitlisted for, it means a family ahead of you on their list has been matched with the dog. 
  • Pending Adoption: This dog has been matched with a forever family and will be heading to their new home as soon as transport/placement can be arranged. You can stay on their waitlist in case the adoption falls through, but it is uncommon.
  • Medical/Behavioral Hold: This pup requires advanced care medically or behaviorally before they will be ready for adoption. You can get on their waitlist and will be notified when they are ready for adoption if/when it is your turn in line. 
  • Permanent Foster: We have decided this pup needs to stay in rescue. As such, they are not available for adoption.

This adorable, 10-month-old, Great Dane/Poodle mix is Sadie. She is housetrained, leash trained, and knows a few basic commands. Being a puppy, she does some barking when crated and will chew any blankets left in the crate, but with the appropriate amount of exercise or mental stimulation we are optimistic she'll learn to love her crate. Again, she is a puppy and her new home will need to understand that obedience training will need to be continued as well.

Jon Snow is a 16 month old, Great Dane. Jon is house trained, knows how to walk on a leash and he is crate trained also. He has a food allergy but a grain free food is an easy fix for this boy. Jon knows how to come when called, down, sit, stay, stand and wait..which you have to admit is pretty impressive for a teenage boy! He will also bark to alert at the doorbell or if he hears a loud noise, so you have a built in alarm system!

Zola is my name, and finding a new fur-ever home is my game! My name is Zola, and I'm a 1-year-old female Great Dane, brindle in color.

See, my former owner fell on hard times and couldn't afford to keep me any longer.

This happy, gorgeous senior lady is Daisy—the Neapolitan mastiff. She was with the same owner since she was a young pup, and her owner was heartbroken at having to give her up but ran into issues with the landlord and had no choice but to drop her off at a shelter.

Hi, Lily here...and I'm a lovely 5 year old fawn female (well I'm guessing you guessed that part?!) GREAT Dane...well a girl's got to toot her own horn! I am being surrendered along with Calli due some personal reasons but I know I'll be loved and safe with my foster family while I look for my forever home. I'm house trained and know how to walk on a leash and I also know basic commands.

My name is Shepard, and I am the hand signal king! I'm a 5-year-old, Harlequin, male Great Dane, and I am deaf. That doesn't stop me at all, because I know the hand signals for "sit," "down," "come," "shake," "speak," "leave it," "drop it," "kennel," and even "high five!" Pretty impressive, huh? I'm a smart boy. I am even used to a vibration collar for recall purposes.

Tux is an adorable, 5 year old, black and white Great Dane Mix. He is good with dogs and kids -- he hasn't met a cat yet but who knows? He is crate trained, house trained and knows the commands sit, down and come (treats are great motivators). Tux was originally a stray and then went to live with a family who had small dogs that weren't too interested in playing with such a big guy, but now he can find an amazing home with you and this time forever and ever.

This wonderful pup is Belle, the Cane Corso. This sweetheart of a girl knows her basic commands and is housetrained and crate trained. She’s never met a cat, so we do not know how she would respond, but she is good with other dogs and loves to play. She’s docile and gets along with kids and loves car rides. In short, what’s not to love about this girl? So why is she in rescue?

So, I know that hunting is big with lots of the guys around here. I'm not quite sure why I got in trouble for it! I'm Freddy, and I'm a 2-year-old male, tri-colored St. Bernard. My former home had lots of chickens and ducks and even cats…and things simply didn't go well. Bottom line: I have a prey drive with cats and birds. So my new home will have to be a no-fowl, no-feline one!

Hercules...yes I was named after "that guy" for many reasons...my physique, my power to bend you to my will with my almond eyes and well the ladies love me too and who I am to turn down a scratch or a cuddle?!

Durga is a very pretty, 1 year old, black brindle Great Dane Mix that has led a rough life so far and has landed her where she is...a blessing in disguise. Durga was not socialized as a puppy and has been abused as well, so she has some fear aggression issues.

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. Ideally I would love to be the only dog where I can get all the love and attention. 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.

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 5-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!  For an English Mastiff, I am pretty average sized. I'm a big, strong boy and may come across as intimidating upon first meeting a stranger, but I am a big softie on the inside.

Queen of Hearts (aka Queenie) here and while I must admit that my name may make you think I'm not fond of those who disagree with me, let me assure I am all about love! You see in my short 2.5 years I was left to fend for myself and my 11 (yes, you heard that right) puppies underneath an abandoned house. And you will have to forgive me for a minute as I toot my own horn here because I was very proud of what I did!
