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.

Are your ready for my closeup? Howdy-do, this is Davina the Cane Corso and I'm a superstar dog. I'm 1 year old with such a beautiful blue coat that you won't be able to stop staring. I've come back to rescue because my adopting family faced a personal tragedy. I will miss them, but I am ready to fill my heart with the love of another family and they said I was the best dog they've ever had.

Moose is a 1.5 yr old, Mantle, Great Dane Mix who was surrendered back to the shelter he was adopted from due to a divorce so he has been bounced around quite a bit in his young life due to no fault of his own. He lived with other dogs, Dachshund, Shepherd, Dane an infant and 9yr old child in his previous home and does great with all he meets.

My name is Kitty, and I'd love to be your purrfect companion! I'm a 5-year-old male Dogue de Bordeaux, handsome red in color. I check in at right around 126 pounds. I'm a victim of the "moving and can't take the dog" syndrome, so I'm hoping my next home will be my forever one. I'm an easy-going guy and very friendly. I love walks and runs, car rides, playing in the snow, going to the mountains, and I even like being groomed!

Annie is a flashy, fawn, 4 year old, Anatolian/Great Pyrenees Mix who was found as a stray and never reclaimed. Annie has not had any formal training but she's very eager to please and already trustworthy with free roam. She may occasionally dig or chew when she is bored but this is easily managed with exercise, stimulation and supervision.

Sophia, the 1-year-old Cane Corso is looking for a warm fire to lie in front of and a family to call her very own. She wants you to know is housetrained, crate trained and good with other dogs and cats. She was taken in by a shelter due to neglect and is now with Big Dogs Huge Paws where she is learning that life is now full of promise with her new beginning. She is a sweetheart who is learning to come out of her shell and has proven herself even around farm-yard animals.

Tubs is a 1 year old, white fluffy guy with fun brown patch over his eye, always at the ready to be your pirate sidekick! Tubs is 125 pounds of love and he is great with other dogs of all sizes, with the felines, and with children as he has lived with them all in his previous home. He is house-trained, and while he has not had any formal obedience training, he knows some basic commands.

Mazi, a 7 year old Giant Pyrenees, found a wonderful home seven years ago.  Very sadly her owner passed away recently and Mazi was surrendered back to the rescue where she came from originally.  The rescue owner must retire due to health problems.  So, Mazi is now with us and patiently awaiting a forever home where she will stay the rest of her days.  It was very rough for Mazi to lose the one with whom she was bonded for so long and then ever rougher for the

Making your way in the world today takes everything you've got. Taking a break from all your worries, sure would help a lot. Wouldn't you like to get away? Sometimes you want to go, where everybody knows your name, and they're always glad you came.

Brystal, a 14 month old Great Pyrenees gal has come to us from another rescue through no fault of her own.  The woman who runs this rescue organization must retire due to health issues.  You've got to see this beauty!  She, like most Great Pyrs, loves people and is a real cuddler.

Daisy Mae is a fawn female Great Dane who is 4.5 years and is coming to us an owner surrender. You see Daisy started off in a puppy mill where she had zero exposure to life outside of her small confined area. While her rescuer had the best of intentions, Daisy just isn't comfortable with the family dynamic and we all agree it's better for her to move on and find the right fit.

Meet Hudson, the very good looking nearly 3 year old, Fawn, male English Mastiff. Hudson is coming to us an owner surrender because there are too many small 2 legged people in his current home and they make him uncomfortable. Hudson is an amazing boy who knows to go potty outside, well stay in a crate or he can be trusted with free roam, he knows how to walk on a leash and get this folks, this mastiff even knows sit, lie down, go to kennel, heal and a few other commands!

Sasha is a 4 year old, Boston Merle, female Great Dane who has some impressive skills to bring to her new table. She is house trained, leash trained and knows sit, lay down, high five, speak, load up, outside, go to bed! She is of course an indoor dog and she's also great with being left free roam. Sasha will bark to alert but she will not dig or chew on anything she shouldn't.
Cricket is a beautiful, blue Great Dane.  She is house, crate and leash trained. She is used to being a trusted indoor lady who can be left to free roam in her house. She loves car rides and is good with most other dogs but she does need slow introductions and time to warm up to her canine friends. Cricket wasn't well socialized and may be reactive to other dogs to start due to fear but once she knows she is safe she does warm up.

Meet Stella. Stella is a 7 month old, white, female Great Pyrenees pup who was surrendered for being a puppy. She dug a hole after being left outside unattended and taken to a shelter for doing so. Stella is a wonderful young girl full of love, wags and and wiggles. She will require exercise, mental stimulation and supervision like any young pup. She is great with other dogs, house trained and leash trained and is very eager to please.

Obi is a very handsome, 1 year old, merle Great Dane who is coming to us as an owner surrender. Obi is a wonderful boy who is house trained, leash trained, crate trained and knows many basic commands. He has been well socialized and loves to play and go to doggy daycare. He is great with kids and cats also having lived with both previously. Being a young boy he hasn't quite earned his free roam wings but he is great in his crate.

My name is Idgie and I'm a 5-year-old female Great Dane, a beautiful Harlequin, and I'm hoping to find a new home after I was a victim of a sad divorce situation. I'm a good girl - I'm house-trained, leash-trained, and trustworthy with roaming free around the house. While I haven't had any formal obedience training, I do know the "sit" and "stay" and "shake" commands - pretty impressive, wouldn't you say?

Puppy energy is fun for some, not so great for others. My name is Sadie, and I'm a 6-month-old female Great Pyrenees puppy. My former owners fell in that "not so great with all the pup energy" camp, so that's why I'm here at BDHP. I'm all white, typical Pyr, as you can see by my photos.

Pierce was picked up as a stray and when no one claimed this 6 year old, fawn, male Old English Mastiff we decided to bring him into our program. He is emaciated weighing in at 106 lbs right now, but he is eating regular, nutritious meals now and we have no doubt he'll be up to a healthy weight in no time. Pierce plays very gently with other dogs.

Ruppert the 4 year old, Apricot, male English Mastiff was picked up while on the run with his partner in crime Guinevere. Ruppert is clearly underweight at only 110 lbs but with regular meals, which he has no problem eating, he will be looking his best self in no time. Ruppert enjoys other dogs and makes friends with all that he meets, he is fairly lazy like most mastiffs and he can be a little anxious when left alone.

Thor is an approximately 1 year old, blue, male Great Dane who has had a rough life so far. This sweet boy was dumped and on the run for 6 weeks before his guardian angel was able to gain his trust and catch him. He is the epitome of a gentle giant who is friendly with all other dogs and children. He is a bit scared but he is coming out of his shell daily.
Bonjour, bonjour - how do you do! My name is Gigi, and I'm the most darling St. Bernard puppy you will ever meet. I'm almost 5 months old and full of promise as I grow up. My family went through a hard time and made the difficult decision to let me go. I am house trained, leash trained and know how to sit, lay down, stay, come and paw. My foster parents are teaching me even more tricks, so I'll be a super performer in no time.
Well, what do you know. I’m Clyde and I’m 5 years old and have lived my entire life outside where I was supposed to be a guard dog. I guess I wasn’t too good at it, cause now I’m looking for a forever home where I can just be my submissive self and live inside with my family. I get along with other dogs, cats and kids, but it’s probably best if I’m not around chickens. They get me all excited.

I'm Jake the Mastiff Mix, and I have a sad story to tell you. I used to have a nice home where I had a small dog buddy. But my owner passed away suddenly, and it took a while before my little canine friend and I were found. Needless to say, we were pretty traumatized by everything that happened. So I'll need a very special home that will understand the past I lived through and that will have the patience to teach me to love again.

B.B. is one handsome 5-year-old, Fawn, male English Mastiff that was found as a stray. It appears that B.B. never knew what it was like to live inside and sleep on a warm bed nor did he have much interaction with people. He is timid and a bit fearful with strangers at first, but now that he is with Big Dog Huge Paws he will have an opportunity to gain confidence. He is good with other dogs but does need slow intros. Once properly introduced, he simply wants to play.

Hucks has traveled a very long way to get to us! This big boy traveled overseas from South Korea where he was rescued by a local American who knew he deserved better than the life he was destined to if he stayed where he was. He is about 5 years old and 120 lbs of fluffy goodness. Hucks was said to be a Saint Bernard/Great Dane mix but we think he is a Great Pyrenees.

Guinevere the 4 yr old Fawn English Mastiff was picked up while on the run with her partner in crime Ruppert. She is clearly underweight at only 84 lbs but with regular meals, which she has no problem eating, she will be looking her prettiest self in no time. She will also have to undergo heartworm treatment before she can go to her forever home because her previous owner didn't use prevention.

Annie was surrendered to the shelter by her owner because as she and her sister grew they ran out of room for the girls. Annie is an 8 month old, black Great Dane who has unfortunately not been well socialized or given much interaction. She is very sweet, a bit shy at first, however, she warms up quickly and loves to be petted once she is comfortable.
Molly was surrendered by her owner to a shelter because as she and her sister grew they ran out of room for the girls. Molly is an 8 month old, blacK Great Dane who has unfortunately not been well socialized or given much attention. She is very sweet, a bit shy at first, however, she does warms up quickly and loves to be petted once she is comfortable.
Bella is a 18 month old, Tawny, Neapolitan Mastiff who thankfully finds herself in rescue where she has narrowly escaped being a over-bred lawn ornament. Bella was purchased to breed and was kept solely outside but the male Mastiff was dog aggressive and she was attacked. She has had her injuries assessed and she is being treated and will be healthy in no time at all. This sweet squishy lady is very friendly to all people and is good with children.

This beautiful 2-year-old Harlequin Great Dane is Gabbana. We suspect she was someone's loved companion at one point but somehow she ended up lost and in a shelter as a stray. She doesn't appear to have much formal training but true to her breed she is eager to please, treat motivated, and catching on fast. She is good with other dogs, seems to be afraid of cats and not super fond of chickens.

Lexi is a wonderful pup who found rescue in the nick of time. This sweet girl, at only 6 months of age, has already had a terrible start to life. Lexi was beaten and had a shock collar used on her by her previous owner and thankfully she was given away and ended up in a local rescue who transferred her to us.

How would you like a holiday with Doc Holiday? This 1-year-old Mastiff Mix is looking for a forever family where he can spend the rest of his holidays in security. Doc Holiday still has some growing and maturing to do with a family who will give him the positive re-enforcement training he needs (is a trash “opportunist” and sometimes tries to chase cars and bikes). He knows the basic commands and will settle down in his crate.

Odin the might Daniff at your service...I am a fantabulous 1.5 year old, black GREAT Dane who was found wandering around like a lost soul and thankfully was picked up and have been kept safe and warm by my human charges. They have fed me, scratched me, loved me and now that they are sure no one is looking for me I have to bid them farewell as I move on to the next stage in my life.

Moose is finding himself on the hunt for some new digs. This 7 year brindle English Mastiff has some tiny additions in his home and he just isn't comfortable with young children and as hard as it is his family has decided to do the best for everyone. Moose will need a home with older children who are respectful of his advancing years and space. He is house trained and leash trained but walks best with a gentle leader.

Bodhi is a 7 month old, brindle Caucasian Shepherd who was abandoned by his previous owner but was lucky enough to find someone to take him in and care for him while looking for a long term solution. Bodhi is already 75 lbs and growing like a weed! He is house trained, knows how to walk well on a leash and knows his basic commands. Of course being a puppy he isn't too great with free roam so keeping him in his crate will keep him, and your house, safe.

Sampson is a 10-year-old Presa Canario who is looking for a new forever home, through no fault of his own. His previous owner never came back for him and Sampson found himself abandoned and then at a shelter. Now, he is here with Big Dogs Huge Paws where he will never need to feel insecure again. Sampson is laid back and mellow, appropriately reserved with strangers, and is good with other dogs and kids.

Bella the Cane Corso is looking for a great home that understands the breed and will love her forever - could it be yours? She's a 2-year-old, fawn-colored, female Cane Corso. She was surrendered to a shelter and is very scared about things right now - understandably so. She's shy and timid and wants to run away. But simple love and trust and work on confidence-building will have her coming out of her shell in no time at all.

Beau, the 2-year-old Cane Corso, is looking for his forever home.  Beau is described as being timid but “very friendly and a total love once he is comfortable.” Beau gets long with other dogs of all sizes, but he can take a protective stance when on leash and needs proper intros.

Meet Athena! This adorable, 4 year old, 96.2 lbs, blue female is a stunning Neapolitan/Cane Corso mix who found herself behind bars at a shelter when her previously owner couldn't afford to take care of her any longer. She recently underwent bilateral cherry eye repair surgery and is receiving only the best of care now. Athena gets along well with other dogs, but hasn't been around cats yet. She is loving and super friendly with people, including kids.

Gumbo the 7-8 year old, Fawn, English Mastiff is coming back to us due to a recent move. Gumbo needs a ranch style home as he is finding it more difficult to climb stairs in his advancing years. He is an amazing boy who will fit into just about any  family. Gumbo is house trained, leash trained and while he's had no formal obedience he does know how to sit, shake and stay. He is an inside dog and he is completely trustworthy with free roam.

I'm Zeus, and while I'm not a character from Greek mythology, ruling the sky and thunder…  I definitely would love to brighten your sky by being an amazing addition to your home! I'm a 6-year-old, male, Great Dane mix. Handsome black with white markings, as you can see. My former owners had to move to a place that does not allow dogs, so that's why I'm here at BDHP.

Poor Butchie is now Lucky Butchie!  BDHP is committed to find him a life absent of starvation and abuse which he most likely suffered before his last owner. She rescued him from the pound where he narrowly escaped euthanasia. He comes to BDHPI in need of heartworm treatment, entropion surgery, and has a number of lumps and bumps that we'll be getting checked out and likely removed.

Lola, l o l a, Lola...heheh she's not quite that Lola but she is ours now and she's on the look out for her retirement home. Lola is a 9.5 yr old English mastiff who was an owner surrender where she had been part of the family for almost all of her days but was unable to go with them when they moved. Lola is house trained and of course an indoor girl who enjoys her snoozes on her dog bed.

Sada is a lovely 3 year old Boerboel Mastiff who is in search of her true forever home. She is of course house trained, crate trained (but trustworthy with free roam) and leash trained and this chunky monkey knows how to sit, stay, come and working on lay down but treats will get you far with her and she's always willing to give it a go! Sada-Lu has been allowed on the furniture but she does not bark, dig or chew like a silly girl.

Mongo is a 3 year old, male Dogue de Bordeaux. This poor guy has been in at least two homes that we know of and is ready for some stability in his life and a true "forever" home. He came to us very thin and scared but is putting weight on nicely and feeling more secure every day as he adjusts to the routine in his foster home. He is house trained, leash trained, knows basic commands, and he is trustworthy with free roam.

Miss Molly is a lovely lady that has been passed around far too many times in her short 3 years. She has been kept inside and is crate trained already. Molly is good with other dogs, with kids and even with cats, this sweetheart wants everyone to be her friend. She does need a 6 foot fence to keep her safely contained as she's not had much stability in her life.

I am Isa, a beautiful 3-4 year old, female Akbash who has been kept as an outside dog until now. The outdoor life as a livestock guardian doesn't fit me at all because I love being with my people and just want to be in the house.

Meet Gunner the stunning, 3 year old, blue brindle, Cane Corso. He has cropped ears and a traditionally docked tail that only add to his charms. This sweet boy is very eager to please and despite not having much training he is already making good headway on learning his basic commands and how to walk like a good boy on a leash. He is house trained and not destructive. He would do best without smaller dogs or felines to chase and but he is great with larger dogs.

Proud foster Mom here of the amazing Waldo Copper Bear, yes I have found myself saying "Where's Waldo" many times (still makes me laugh). While finding Waldo is easy, his past is a mystery. You see poor Waldo was dropped off at a shelter, and the story he is sharing doesn't seem to be the same as the story his previous owners told the shelter. We were told that Waldo is 5 but the vet thinks he is older (possibly 7).

My name is Groot, and I am root, root, rooting for a new home while I toot, toot, toot my own horn a little! Check me out: I'm a 1-year-old male harlequin Great Dane, and you can see how handsome a man I am. The reason I'm here at BDHP is because my former owner simply wouldn't afford my medical care, and that's sad, but I know that everything happens for a reason and that I'll be equally as loved in a new home.

Duke is a very handsome, brindle, 3 year old, Dogue de Bordeaux (3/4) and American Bulldog (1/4) mix who is coming to us because his owners schedule changed and he is unable to give Duke enough time or attention. Duke is house trained and crate trained but he is also trustworthy with free roam so the choice is yours! He walks like a good boy on a leash and he knows his basic commands.

Caesar is a very squishy, wrinkly 14 month old Dogue De Bordeaux who has been passed around at least 3 times in short life that we know of and his past has left him a bit traumatized  Caesar is trustworthy with free roam and he doesn't bark, dig or chew on anything despite his young age. He hasn't been allowed on furniture and is perfectly ok with a dog bed, although we're sure he wouldn't mind some couch cuddles with his new human once he feels he is safe!

My name is Picante, and you'd better get your application in and ask about me, because I have a feeling this big wrinkly dog will be one "hot" item! I'm a 2-year-old, black brindle, male Neapolitan Mastiff. But let's talk about my noggin. And my wrinkles. Huge and lovable - I'm quite a conversation piece, and I know it! Like I say… one hot dude. Keep in mind that I am a Neo Mastiff, and we have certain breed traits and such.

Bella is an 8 year old, white, female Great Pyrenees mix that is looking for a retirement home where she can be loved, cared for and kept indoors. Bella is house trained and walks well with a gentle leader. Even though she's a Pyr mix she and an indoor dog she enjoys patrolling her yard every now and then, barking and letting her inner Pyr out! Bella might dig to find a cool spot to lay but we all have our quirks.

My name is Sharpei, and I'm not. Not a Shar Pei, that is. HA! No, I'm Sharpei the St. Bernard, and I'm a gorgeous, mature female at 10 years young. You know, once we're older we don't have all those goofy puppy behaviors and traits, so we're pretty much the ideal companion for anyone. I like to think I'm exactly that! I'm a tri-colored Saint, very friendly with all people and good with dogs of all sizes.

Ok, I’ll admit “Biggun” is not the prettiest name for a princess like me. So, forget that name, let’s call me Grace instead. One day I had a home, and the next day I found myself wandering the streets. I am around 5 years old according to the vet. As I was wandering, I saw a very nice man, and I decided he would be the one I could ask for help. Sssooooo…when his door was open, I just jumped right up in his truck.

Did you know Rocco means "rest"? Well, I'm an upper middle aged (some say senior citizen) When I'm not taking a nap I'm carrying my bowls around the house.  I have a bit of arthritis but what upper middle ager doesn't. I would love a quiet home with my people, blankets, and chew bones.
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!

Reggie is a handsome, 2 year old, Red, male Dogue de Bordeaux who comes to us through no fault of his own as his family is unable to provide the right environment for this boy. Reggie has allergies and these can lead to skin and ear infections but a grain free diet will help keep these at bay. He is house trained and leash trained and he knows how to sit, stay, heel, wait, leave it and shake! Reggie is an indoor dog who is trustworthy with free roam.

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. Luckily, BDHPI was there to come to her rescue and spring her from jail and she is now in a loving home environment.

Grayson is a 10 month old, boston merle Great Dane who has been in 2 homes so far in his short life. His first home he got a taste for chickens and started chasing their bull so they decided to rehome him and the second person fell into financial troubles and then released him to BDHP. We have promised Mr. Grayson that third time will be a charm and that his next family will be his forever home!
Brutus the 2 year old, blue, Great Dane here to report I am ready to find my forever home. My previous owner meant well but unfortunately is no longer able to care for me because he is undergoing long-term care for medical issues. I will miss him but I am excited for my next adventure. I would love a home with other pup pals of any size and I love to run and play!
Gracie is a 9 year old Fawnequin Great Dane with cropped ears who is looking for a new home with her bonded sister, Bella.

Who said playtime is just for the kids? My name is a Wilhemina, and I'm a 5-year-old female Presa Canario. And I LOVE to play! Play dates, play groups, play time - it's all aces with me! I especially like it when there's just one other canine to romp with me, but any and all play is good stuff! I'm beautiful and brindle in color, as you can see by my photos.

This beautiful fawn, 5-year-old, Bullmastiff is Nala. Living circumstances have changed for her family, and this wonderful girl is looking for her furever home. She is house trained, crate trained and leash trained. She also knows commands such as sit, stay, come and kennel. She loves car rides, Nylabones, natural bones and stuffed animals, but guns and fireworks scare her.

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. She needs some time to warm up to new people, dogs, and situations and will need a patient owner willing to go slow with her. Once she knows them, she's amazing with other dogs and people.
Barrette how we wish we could erase the past few months for you but all we can do and promise is that your future will be nothing but wonderful and full of all the love, kisses, scratches and treats a boy could ask for. You see sweet, sweet Barrette (the 7 year own Fawn with merle markings Great Dane) was found locked in a trailer with his deceased owner and 3 deceased dogs.

Gorgeous Gaiya is a 3.5 yr old female, Harlequin Great Dane who is all sugar and kisses. This sweetheart was adopted from a shelter but returned due to the existing dog in the home not accepting her so the shelter contacted us and here she is, living it up while waiting on her new family. Gaiya is house trained, knows how to sit pretty and she's partially leash trained...she's working on this and getting better each time.

Shelby is a 3 year old fawn, Boerboel Mastiff who is sweet as sugar and ready to find her forever home.

This regal, gentle 8-year-old Anatolian Shepherd/Great Pyrenees Mix is Bode (now called “Leo” for Leonidas). He is looking for a place to call his own after his owner’s circumstances changed. He would be best as the only dog and he is truly a gentle giant. when it comes to people True to his breed he will calmly and quietly patrol the property, mark his territory, and will bark to alert.

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!).

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.

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.

Hi, I'm Griffy! I'm a 6.5-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.

Ruby the 3.5 year old fawn, female English Mastiff is a special jewel looking for her forever home. She is a submissive girl who 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. The good news is Miss Ruby's prognosis is positive, and she has done physical therapy for two years to help her leg get back its mobility and she is making progress slowly but surely.

HELLLLLOOOOOO there, my name is Sally and I'm a 7-year-old English Mastiff. I came to BDHPI after my sister and I were used for breeding. Now that my sister has been adopted, I'm just waiting to find my forever home. I am leash trained and have good recall off leash. I don't bark and have learned all the good manners a dog should have from my foster family. I am good with other dogs after proper introductions.
