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.

Available Dogs
My name is Beauregard, and sure do feel like I fit in here at Big Dogs Huge Paws! I'm a 111 pound, 18 month old Saint Bernard. I don't really understand why I'm here exactly - my family just said something about "moving." I guess moving means I end up here with my big dog friends! I'm a really happy, playful boy, and I'm really good with other dogs and have a submissive personality.

Hi, I'm Randy. I'm here to steal your heart, because that's how I roll. I'll tell you my age (5 years old) and my color (grey) but I'm keeping my heritage a bit of a secret. Anyone's best guess is Wolfhound/Mastiff mix. But, ancestry doesn't define the size of my heart. I'm good with kids and other large dogs, but I will need a home without any small dogs or cats because I do like to chase.

No, there's no George to play straight man for me, but I'd love to be your Gracie! I'm a six year-old female Great Dane, and I'm a pretty well-rounded actress, if I do say so myself. I'm house trained, leash trained, and trustworthy with free roam.
Sarah is a 7 year old, Brindle, female Presa Canario with cropped ears. She weighs 81 lbs and came to BDHPI from a shelter where her chances for adoption were slim to none as a senior and heartworm positive. She is now getting the medical care she needs and living the good life in a foster home with several other dogs who she gets along great with! Sarah has not been cat or kid tested yet but we should know more on that front soon.

Meet our newest big buddy, Tatanka! Tatanka is a 4 year old, 114 lb, Fawn, male English Mastiff. This adorable mug is already house trained, crate trained, leash trained, and he knows sit and down. He is an inside dog who will bark to alert when someone is approaching like a good guard dog but is mostly a couch potato true to his breed. He is over the puppy stage although he does still enjoy chewing on a nice bone or stuffed Kong.

Meet our big buddy, Bo! He is a 4-5 year old, 108 lb, Brindle, male English Mastiff that was surrendered to a shelter by his owners. The German Shepherd that he lived with previously wouldn't let him eat so he is on the thin side and clearly has a submissive personality since he allowed himself to be bullied. We'll be getting him fattened up and making sure he is fed alone so no one can steal his food any more!

Hi! Have you been looking for me? Nice to meet you! I'm Dylan, a 2.5 year old, fawn, male Mastiff mix. I used to wander the streets alone, but some nice people found me and now I can't get enough of snuggling up next to you! I can be a lap dog if you need a hug, but I know how to give you some space if you redirect me.

Hi there, I'm Peyton. Don't confuse me with Peyton Manning, even though I know it's tough. I'm just about as awesome as he is, but I can't throw a football. Maybe someday I could learn to catch one, if you wanted to teach me to play! I'm a year old, black, Great Dane, and man am I one laid-back guy.

Hello out there! My name is Lucy and I might be just the furry friend you're looking for! I'm a gorgeous (according to two-legged friends), black, female Newfoundland. Words like "super sweetheart", "very devoted" and "well mannered" have also been used to describe me, but I start to blush a little when talking about that.

I am Titan. I’m a 5 year old, male, ¾ Mastiff ¼ Bulldog, tan in color, and nothing but love. My original Momma was going off to be a Veterinarian so you rehomed with a family that cared for me until now. They are sadly moving into town from the mountains and the place they have chosen does not allow pets. So here I am, looking for a family that will love me for all of my days to come. I’m a good dog and have good manners.

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.

I’m Kingston, a Brindle Great Dane with colors and patterns that are unique to only me. I’m a 4 year old, very solid and sturdy 150 lb, male pup and I come to Big Dogs Huge Paws with my sister Stella. She truly is my sister and we have been together since our first day. We don’t think that we are a bonded pair, but they will be testing us to see how we do on our own away from each other.

Anyone can change their spots or so I’ve been told, and I guess it’s my time to make a change. My name is Cherry Berry: a little rhyming means lots-o-love. I’m a 5 year old, polka-dotted, harlequin, female, Great Dane and I am here to find my forever and ever home.

Puppies... why does everyone want a puppy? Don’t people know the ‘Dog Love Equation’
Weight + Age x Drool - Gas = Love
 
Adult Dogs are all the cuddling and fun without the messy clean up.

My name is Jack and I’ve got just one question. Why do people give up their faithful friends when they get a divorce? Now I’m no counselor, but if you are going to go something horrible like losing the love of your life, doesn’t it make sense to hold on to the next best thing, your furry friend, your companion, your second love?

Want to sell your used car? Put it the specs on Craigslist. Want to have a garage sale? Put the address on Craigslist. Want to find a super cheap date? Put yourself on Craigslist. Want to get rid of your faithful, loving, friend to the lowest bidder? Put her on Craigslist. Wait! What? No!!! Don’t ever put a dog on Craigslist... EVER! Ellie was rescued off of Craigslist by a kind soul that cared more for her the people listing her. They simply wanted to get rid of her.

Hi! My name is Suzy. I am a 5 year old English Mastiff. Me and my sister just found out we're being retired! Our Mama was a breeder, so while it will be great not to have a littler of puppies always around, it seems we are also looking for a home. We will be spayed. I mean, if we're retired, that DOES mean no more puppies, right? Thank goodness! We are currently outside dogs, but are THRILLED for that to change.

Grrrrr! My name is Bear...but I am not the big brown grizzly type or the smaller black type of bear...I am an 8 month old, white, Akbash. I am a sweet and playful guy who is very smart and loves to learn new things. I am a champ with house training, crate training, and learning all sorts of new tricks such as basic commands and walking on leash in my foster home.

Meet Zoey! This beauty is around 1 year old and is a Mantle, female, Great Dane. She was found as a stray, weighing only 83 lbs at the time, and in definite need of some groceries. She lived with other Great Danes and cats at her rescuers home but unfortunately they were unable to find her original owners or keep her permananetly so they contacted BDHPI for help. Zoey is now living in a foster home with an older child and has warmed right up to all!

Flower is a 9 year old spayed female Saint Bernard. She is super sweet, mellow and laid back. She has been raised with children, good with dogs and ignores cats. She is house trained, crate trained and not destructive. She was brought into the vet to be euthanized by her owners, who stated that she couldn't walk and wasn't eating. She pranced through the door, wagging her tail.

Meet Lucy! This 1.5 year old, Harlequin, female Great Dane is mostly white with just a few black spots. She has a smaller build at only 70 lbs and may be mixed but looks like a purebred and would be an easy keeper for someone not looking for a super big dog. She has a huge heart and loves to be loved! Lucy gets along well with other dogs and while she hasn't been tested with cats or kids yet, we can't imagine she has a mean bone in her body.

Hello everyone!  My name is Bodacious.  But my friends call me Bodie.  I was literally a stud in Missouri before landing in my current foster home.  I’m 10 years old and, as you can see, I am a Bronze and White Newfoundland.  Yes, I have been shaved so I may not look like your typical Newfoundland at the moment, but inside I am all Newfie and my hair will grow out.

Smokey is our cowardly lion, aka a 3 year old, Brown and White, Newfoundland. This sweet boy is pretty amazing as far as we can tell, despite his history of being locked outside and used strictly for breeding purposes. While we are sure he made some adorable puppies, he would just assume put his mating days behind him and enjoy the good life now of being neutered and pampered as a family pet indoors.

Welcome to Willow's world. This stunning Fawn, female, English Mastiff is 6 years old and has been in two previous homes.  Willow was loved in both homes but lack of attention due to five children moved her from her first home to her second home which had cats, and Willow was a little too interested in the cats. This love bug knows her basic commands, is good with free roam, does not chew, dig or bark.

Hi, big dog lovers! My name is Zeus and I am an 8 year old, Fawn, Boerboel Mastiff. I am pretty special being of South African decent, you know. I am also a really good boy and while my breed definitely can have aggressive tendencies, I am just a great big lover boy. I get along well with other canine and feline pals and wouldn't mind joining some other furry friends.

Frank may be a 4 year old Black Male Great Dane that was found as a stray, but he is a goofball and a lover.  If you are looking for an energetic dog that can help you with your ball throwing abilities by playing fetch, Frank is your dog!  If you don’t mind the squeaking of dog toys throughout your house, then Frank is your dog!

A 2 year old, male, English Mastiff named Tiny is anything but Tiny. This Big Boy was in a high-kill shelter and an all-breed rescue saved him from a certain ending. They felt he needed to be with a breed specific rescue so that he could find a family that understood the needs of a Big Dog. So here he is, with us at BDHP. Not a lot is known about Tiny since he was a stray, but he is settling in with his foster family and they will be able to provide updates as time passes.

Hi! My name is Miles, and I am about 2 years old. I don't exactly remember my past, but I was found skinny, weak and starving near Tulsa. I am now living with a boxer who doesn't like me very much and always picks fights with me. I'm not that bad! I am a house trained, leash trained, inside dog who is trustworthy with free roam. I don't get on the furniture, bark, dig or chew, so I really don't have many bad habits.

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.

My name is Fezzik and I’m looking for a family to love me for all of my days. I’m a 6 year old, male, St. Bernard/Mastiff cross-breed and I’m a firm 110 lbs. My family has loved me since I was only 12 months old, but they had a baby and that baby has become mobile and that is just way too much activity for me.

At 5 years old, Maija is learning to play. What a wonderful sight to see a grown, 125 lb, female, English Mastiff, let her guard down and finally initiate play. Maija was picked up by animal control after entering a private yard as a stray and getting involved in a scuffle with another dog. Maija was watched for any signs of aggression while in the care of the County, and it was determined that she is shy but not aggressive.

Marco here, I am a 1 year old, Grey, Irish wolfhound mix puppy. My foster mom thinks I am either part Bouvier de Flanders and Irish Wolfhound or part Muppet and Wolfie. I am a silly guy and let me tell you a little about me.

Tuke and his sister Olivia are seeking a new life start. These Anatolian Shepherd/Akbash mixed pups were living out in the country but their family moved to town and had no room for them, so they are with us, waiting for their forever to begin. Tuke is a 5 year old, fawn, male and been being kept outside for some time.

Olive and her brother Tuke are starting again. These Anatolian Shepherd/Akbash mixed pups were living out in the country but their family moved to town and had no room for them, so they are with us, waiting for their forever to begin.  Olive is a 5 year old, fawn, female and has been being kept outside for some time with her brother.

Gus is a great big, teddy bear who is 7 years young and a handsome, tri-colored, male Saint Bernard! He came to BDHPI from a shelter where he was adopted and returned because he wasn't a big fan of the birds in the cage. If you ask him, the squawking was highly annoying and he was just trying to tell them to be quiet and knock off all that racket so he could sleep. Well, enough about them and on to the future!

My name is Bubba!  I’m new to BDHPI and I’m looking for a few good people to love me forever. Not a huge amount is known about me, but I’ll give you all the details that I can. I’m a 5 year old, male, fawn, Bullmastiff / St.Bernard cross breed and my family gave me to a shelter because they were moving and couldn’t take me with.

Meet Gotti, a 7 year old, Red, male Dogue de Bordeaux. He and his littermate, Gambino, are looking for a new home because with 3 kids, including a new baby, and a new job, his previous family didn't have time to give them the attention they deserved. He is good with other dogs after proper introductions (but he does need time to warm up), cats and kids.
Gambino is a 7 year old, Red, male Dogue do Bordeaux. He and his brother, Gotti, are searching for a new home as their last owners didn't have the time to give them the attention they need and deserve. Gambino is house and crate trained, and can walk on a leash, although he could definitely use some addition training with a harness. He does know sit and his foster family will be working on teaching him new tricks.
Hi, my name is Peaches and I am a 3 month old, Brown and White Landseer, Newfoundland! My breeder had to give me up and some of her older dogs because she was unable to care for us all properly. So, here I am with Big Dogs Huge Paws where I am learning all about being inside and part of a family. I am a cuddly teddy bear that just wants to be loved and I am gaining confidence every day with positive socialization.

Hi, my name is Avery! I somehow found myself wandering as a stray but luckily a concerned citizen picked me up and got me to these great folks at BDHPI. The vet thinks I am around 6 months old and a Great Dane/Lab mix. I am really skinny at 50 lbs but there is lots of food here in my foster home so I should be back to a healthy weight soon. I love to play with other doggie friends of all sizes and can't get enough attention from humans big and small.

Starsky and his buddy Hutch were found wandering in the country...apparently their Gran Torino must have broken down after they were suspended from the police force. One thing is certain, his former owners should be in jail for letting this sweetheart get away! He is a 1.5-2 year old, mostly white Tri-colored, Anatolian Shepherd. He enjoys romping and playing with other dogs and even does well at doggie daycare.
Lloyd the Red, Male, 4-5 year old, Dogue de Bordeaux is looking for a fresh start. Lloyds family didn’t have the time to work on some of his territorial traits, so they decided it was better to place him in the care of BDHPI and help him find a new family that has the time and patience to deal with any of his issues. Lloyd is house-trained and doesn’t much care for crate containment.

They call me Leonidas around here and I have over-heard them saying I have had quite a rough start.  I have to tell you, I agree with them.  You see, I was dumped at a shelter with my schnauzer brother.   The first story they gave the shelter was that my previous Dad was beating my little doggie brother, and I came to the rescue and bit my human dad.  Then the story changed that it was a dog fight and my human was bit in the process of biting of breaking us all up.

Tank... that just sounds beefy, and this Big Boy is going to live up to his name. 6-1/2 year old Tank is rolling in at 146 lbs of male, brindle, English Mastiff, Love. Tank comes to us from a shelter where he was placed because his owners could no longer afford to care for his chronic ear infections and allergies. His original family couldn’t afford his care, so a friend took him in, saving him from the fate of a local high-kill shelter.

Stray, by definition: “A homeless and unwanted creature. Discarded” That is how my story begins, as a 9 year old stray. I was walking the streets and I was hit by a car. As you can imagine a 9 year old Mastiff isn’t always the most agile and I couldn’t get out of the way of the moving vehicle quick enough. That is how I came into rescue. My name is Tigger.

Julianna the Harlequin, Great Dane is one Special Girl. She and her special brother Tank have come to join the BDHPI family as their owner became ill and was no longer able to care for them.  Julianna is blind but you would almost never know it on a day to day basis. She is really no problem at all from that point of view. She is very outgoing and adventurous.

Meet Tank.  This 5 year old, Harlequin, Great Dane, Male is a looking for a new family to call his own. Tank and his sister, Julianna, have come to BDHPI because their owner was diagnosed with lupus and is unable to care for them any longer. Tank is what we would call protective of his house, but we think it is mostly because he is afraid as he is fairly reserved and shy in general. He just needs proper introductions with new people to make him feel safe.

Is today your birthday? Was yesterday? How many birthdays have you had? Everyone likes having a Happy Birthday with some cake, a silly hat and lots of hugs... and I’d love to have a happy birthday too! The problem is that I don’t know when my birthday is or how many I’ve had... but I sure know that I’d like to have my very own day. My name is Sallie and I’m a female Saint Bernard that the vet believe's is around 3-4 years old.

Penelope Cruz is an exotic, dark skinned, beautiful, 4 year old, Great Dane! She enjoys Flamenco dancing with other dogs, but is a little too rough to dance nicely with small animals. She prefers her partners to be taller than her so she can wear heels! When she is not on the dance floor with her canine pals, she can be found leaning on adults and kids alike for pets and loving while having coffee at the outdoor cafe.

Willow the 2-year-old, brindle, Bullmastiff mix wants to come home with you! She's a real sweetheart and a huge cuddle bug, according to her foster parents. She's good with dogs, cats and kids, after proper introductions. Willow's owner surrendered her after having her for five months to an animal shelter when the family got a new puppy and Willow would growl to correct him.

Bo is a 2-3 year old, Fawn, male Bullmastiff who BDHPI sprung from a shelter when he was skin and bones from starvation and infested with worms! He is undergoing treatment for parasites and will receive heartworm treatment once he is healthy enough, but for now the focus is putting on some much needed weight. He is just as sweet and deserving as they come and is fitting in wonderfully at his foster home with 2 other dogs, small and large, and children.

My name is Annabelle and I’m the Momma to a very special puppy named Patience. I too am a Special Great Pyrenees and am partially deaf and mostly blind. I can see some light and some shapes... but my Patience was the brightest light that I could see in this life. She was my beacon of hope and I know that she will brighten the lives of a very lucky family. I’ve been living with my disabilities for my entire life, which is approximately 5 years.

 My name is Gabby and I’m a fawn colored, female, 13 month old Great Dane. My family took me to the doctor because they started seeing some neurological symptoms and the Vet recommended an MRI to see just what was going on. My family couldn’t afford the tests and any additional treatment so they decided to send me to Big Dogs Huge Paws to have me medically assessed and treated.

My name is Persephany, I am a Merleaquin  which means I am both Merle and Harlequin Great Dane. I am a sweet senior girl who has been through a lot in my 7 years. I ended up at the shelter as a stray, scared and  very skinny. It’s obvious that I have had a lot of puppies in my time. I was scared at the shelter but, I was very excited to here that I was going to rescue.

VooDoo… oh the magic that you are going to do in someone’s life will be remarkable. Voodoo is a 2 year old, female, white, Great Pyrenees and she is the lovely, furry sister to Lou-doh the Great Pyr. These two pups were an owner surrender due to, space, time and attention limitations. They simply weren’t able to be cared for in a way that the owner felt they needed, so they let them go in hopes of finding them new forever families.

Bronco is a 5 year old, Fawn, 150 lb, English Mastiff/Great Pyrenees Mix who came to us in pretty rough shape between allergies, an ear infection, vision loss and a torn CCL. He has been started on a hypo-allergenic diet and undergone knee surgery and is doing so much better now! Sadly, Bronco has progressive retinal atrophy. He cannot see very well at night or dim light and will be totally blind likely within a year and a half.

Meet, King Arthur! This 2-3 year old, Brindle, Boerboel Mastiff pulled a magical sword out of a stone and found himself in BDHPI rescue with a round table of knights to protect and serve him. He is regal and good looking like any good king should be and he is enjoying the banquet spreads of high quality dog food and savory treats to fatten him up after his days on the streets.

These speed demons are racing to meet their forever families at the finish line! Meet Cadi the black female who is one of 10 puppies born on 1/15/14 from Great Dane mama, Doe Doe, and a mystery daddy who came visiting when her humans were away. Unfortunately, these folks were not loving, responsible owners and they were driving around with these babies hanging out of the window and telling people they were getting rid of them one way or another!

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.

Awwww Dang!  Why did my family have to bring that little person into our house?  Everything was great before they brought it home. I was best friends with the other dogs that were in the house and we all shared toys and were totally buddies until that day… and that was when I decided that I would take matters into my own paws and take control of this new little person situation. So, in hindsight, I may have handled things poorly.
I loved my family and they loved me, but military housing wouldn’t allow them to have me. It’s sad, but it’s ok.  I’m young and have my whole life ahead of me. My name is Musso and I’m a 1 year old, blue, Cane Corso boy and I’m looking for my forever family.
Danni is a 2 year old, Fawn, English Mastiff/Great Dane Mix female. She was found as a stray and we suspect her past wasn't the greatest given her initial shy and fearful nature.

Sissy is here with at BDHPI looking for just one thing... YOU.  This sweet lady is around 4-5 years of age. She has had a very rough past which is evident by the bones showing throughout her body when she was found as a stray. On the bright side, a full bowl of dog food is all the doctor has ordered for this lady to get back to health.

Calli the 6-year-old black Great Dane is looking for a new family to call her own. She's a petite one, weighing in at a mere 102 pounds. She's been involved in some traumatic circumstances prior to coming into rescue, but with a bit of love and a calm environment, she has settled into a wonderful, playful firl.

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.

Meet our newest gangster, Clyde the 2 year old, 90 lb, Mantle male Great Dane! Clyde is looking to put his bank robbery days behind him and settle down somewhere permanently instead of constanting running from the law.

Meet out friend "Nomad" who is a 3-5 year old, Fawn, Anatolian Shepherd who is ready to put his days of moving from place to another behind. He is 98.2 lbs of pure lovin and while he was found as a stray, he was clearly someone's pet once upon a time based on how quickly he has acclimated to his foster home and indoor living.

Meet our "Diamond in the rough"! Diamond the 3-5 year old, Red, female Dogue de Bordeaux. This sweet girl found herself in a shelter when her owner went to jail, along with her mate and their daughter, Diva, who is also available for adoption through BDHPI. Unfortunately, my previous family didn't take very good care of me so I was very skinny and heartworm positive back then, but I have gained weight and was treated for heartworm so I am ready to start my new life now.

Good Gracious Gatsby!! Look at the legs on you! Gatsby the tall, dark, and handsome Great Dane was just recently returned to BDHPI and is hanging out with his foster folks until a forever family swoops him up.  This young man is around 2 years old and still has some filling out to do on that slender frame. In his short life, Gatsby has been shuffled around from house to house due to his size and being a teenager.

Welcome our new red friend, Dede to the foster scene.  We don't know a whole lot about her yet but we do know this pretty girl is a 2-3 year old, female Dogue de Bordeaux.  She was picked up as a stray and when her time was up at the shelter BDHP swooped in to save the day.  We promised this sweetie that we would help build her confidence and find her a perfect home full of warmth, dog beds and plenty of food.

Meet the King! This black Great Dane isn't your typical confident ruler but he is deserving of feasts and jewels for sure. He and his brother, Ace, were found as strays, starving and afraid. He remains timid but he is starting to come out of his shell and learning to trust thanks to his amazing foster family.

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.

As children, we were all taught to love Macaroni because it is so much fun… and I’m here to tell you that nothing has changed! I’m Macaroni and you should love me because I’m all kinds of wonderful! I’m a 5 year old, black Great Dane Girl and I’m here because the rabbits ran me straight out of town.

Hello there, my name is Turbo and I am here to make your dreams come true.  I am a handsome 5 year old male, Fawn, English Mastiff.  I am about as sweet as they come.  I love people both big and small and would love to have some kids in my new forever home.  I am great with dogs of all sizes and wouldn't mind having one or two of those in my new home as well.
Erin is a 5-6 year old Merle, Great Dane, Momma that has clearly had many litters and was recovering from having some puppies before she came into rescue. She has wonderful maternal tendencies and is good with dogs of any age or size and is doing great with the young boy in her foster home as well. Erin is a bit shy, but she warms up quickly and has really come out of her shell.

Natalia is a 5 year old, Brindle, Boerboel Mastiff. Her massive size and good looks turn heads on each and every one of her walks. Natalia's original owners could not keep her and she was living the last few years out on the farm in an outdoor run with her brother, Beilo the Great Dane who is also in rescue with us.  She came to us with a hurt hind leg and is currently limping so we are going to have the vet's check that out right away.

Major has spent the whole 4 years of his life progressing in the ranks and has reached the lofty grade of ‘Captain of Love’. He is a very heavy boy and his foster family will be working with him to decrease his weight and improve his overall health. This BullMastiff Boy was released by his family because the landlord decided that they were no longer allowed to have a dog.

Meet Nick, our large and in charge newest addition! This 3 year old, Harlequin, male Great Dane was the victim of divorce, moving, and his owner working too long of hours, requiring him to be crated up to 12 hours/day. Unfortunately, this big lug needs a lot more exercise, attention, and training than they could provide so he is now here with us at Big Dogs.
 Bielo is a 7 year old, Blue, 145 lb, male Great Dane. He lived previously with a Boerboel Mastiff and sadly his owners could no longer keep them after they moved. They were originally house dogs but have been living outside for the past few years, and we are happy to report back he quickly embraced his indoor living opportunity and has had no accidents.

Ducky is special. You can see it immediately when he walks over to greet you.  You can sense it in his charming, happy spirit and feel it in his gentle, loving touch. Ducky is a 1.5 year old St. Bernard and was found by the County as a stray. We don’t know much about Ducky, but we know that he is unique. He was affectionately named based on his “duck legs” in his hind quarters.

Krissy, we don’t know why your owner gave you away to the shelter, but we are sorry for your sadness and we are going to make it all better.There is a lot that we don’t know about Krissy’s past, like her age or medical history, but what we do know, we really like. This laid back, gentle, sweetheart of a dog is a senior, fawn, Mastiff Mix and she is a joy to be around.

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.

Why would someone have two giant breed dogs just to keep them outside for their whole lives? Wouldn’t they know how much cuddling and companionship that they were missing out on by keeping us in the back yard? Didn’t they know how cold it was during the winters and how miserable it was during the awful summers? I guess we should be happy that they moved into a rental that wouldn’t allow dogs, now no other dogs will suffer.

My name is Barley and I am a 1.5 year old, Red, female Dogue de Bordeaux. I like my introductions to new dogs to be slow and proper and my foster family recommends a home with larger dogs only as I can be a little snarky with smaller ones. I seem to do okay with some cats with proper supervision but it really depends on the personality of the cat involved.

Lily is a 5 year old, Tan, Tibetan Mastiff/Bloodhound Mix who looks like a fluffy version of her mom, the bloodhound, but emotionally she's all Tibetan like her dad. She is house trained, crate trained, leash trained and knows 10 basic commands, including sit pretty and rollover. She is a very accomplished young lady who has passed her Canine Good Citizen Test and is very obedient and loyal to her humans but she does require a strong leader.

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!

Say hello to Daisy (aka Kali)! This buttercup of a pup is joining us to begin a new chapter in her life’s story. Not a lot is known about this petunia’s past, but what is certain is that she is a 100lb, Black, Neapolitan Mastiff. At 2 years old, she has lots of playful days ahead of her and she would love an active forever home with a big backyard for her to run and play in! Ms.

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

 Darla is an adorable, almost 2 year old, Blue, female Neapolitan Mastiff. Her entire body wiggles as she wags and she is a very happy girl! She gets along okay with some other large dogs after proper introductions and time to work out her place in the pack, but does have some aggression issues and would probably do best in a home without any other animals. She definitely cannot be around any small dogs or cats of any kind and does have a strong prey drive.

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.
