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.

Did you parents ever say "When you get your home, then you can have a Great Dane?"  If so, then we have a giant for you!  Si is a 5 year old, black, tail waggin', easygoing, Great Dane that prances like a Clydesdale. He is a bit underweight at 95 lbs and another 15 lbs would do him just fine. He is house/crate trained and does not get on the furniture. Honestly, a soft dog bed that he call his own is all he needs.

Bella the bronze colored, 3 year old, Newfoundland was returned to her breeder after her adoptive family didn't want her anymore and she is now with BDHP to find her "forever home".

He has been in at least two homes and surrendered to a shelter, where luckily he found his way to us.

His foster family will be giving him a crash course in basic training but he'll be a work in progress for a while of course.

Salut! My name is Gigi, and I'm so happy to meet you. I'm a 4.5 year old, Harlequin, female Great Dane looking for that special kind of love. My sweet owner loved me very much but didn't have enough time for me, so I came into rescue hoping for a home with lots of attention and time to give. I am house trained, leash trained and know the commands sit, lay, stay, go and stop. I am trustworthy with free roam and usually stay off the furniture.

Hello, hello - my name is Goliath, and while my name means enormous, I am actually a normal sized, brindle English Mastiff. I'm 3.5 years old, and let me tell you, it's been an adventure. I was dumped on the streets by my previous owners. At the local shelter, I underwent some surgery and got a leg wound patched up. Now I'm back to 100% and ready to adventure towards my new forever home. I am house trained, leash trained and good with dogs and kids.

The shelter contacted us to let us know about her and we're excited to be able to get this girl into a home that will love and care for her for all of her days.

Gezelle is a an absolutely stunning, 4 year old Harlequin Great Dane who was found by a good Samaritan as a stray. Gezelle was not reclaimed and we are thankful, as no doubt she is, because it's quite clear this girl was used as a cash cow and has had many litters in her short 4 years...well no more sweetie! Gezelle is very sweet, mellow and friendly with all that she meets. So far she's also been good with all the dogs she has met.

Beau is a loyal, loving 3 year old Dogue de Bordeaux who finds himself on the search for some new digs after his owner found themselves unable to physically care for him.

He enjoys going on car rides flappy his drooly mastiff jowls out the window.

Darla is approximately 18 months old and she's a gorgeous tri-colored, smooth coated Saint Bernard who was abandoned at a rental house.

Darla is shy and can be fearful but she just removes herself from the situation until she feels confident about it and is not aggressive at all.

Lil Bo is a 3 month old, brindle male Mastiff Mix puppy who will steal your heart with one glance! He is as sweet as he is adorable and will be going through puppy boot camp in preparation for meeting his forever family very soon. Bo's new owners will have to have the energy to keep up with a puppy and of course plenty of chew toys and walks will be important to keep him out of trouble. He loves playing with other dogs so a playmate would be great fun too.

He is a warrior who has gone through so much in his life as a stray and who knows what else in his many years.

Bo-bo-bo-Bodhi here, and I am searching for my true, adult self. I have heard my name means either something in Buddhism or a famous surfer. What I know for sure is I am an 8-month-old, brindle, male Caucasian Shepherd who came to BDHP after being found as a stray.

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.

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!

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 wasn't comfortable with that particular 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.

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.

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.

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.

Guinevere the 4 yr old Fawn English Mastiff was picked up while on the run with her partner in crime Ruppert. She came in very underweight at only 84 lbs but with regular meals, which she has no problem eating, she is already up to 100 lbs and will be looking her prettiest self in no time. She has undergone heartworm treatment and is already feeling better.

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.

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.

But simple love and trust and work on confidence-building will have her coming out of her shell in no time at all.

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.

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.

Sada is a lovely 3 year old Boerboel Mastiff who is in search of her true forever home.

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.

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.

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!

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 am an upper middle aged (some say senior citizen) When I am not taking a nap I am carrying my bowls around the house. I have a bit of arthritis but what upper middle aged dog does not? I would love a quiet home with my people, blankets, and chew bones. I am leash and house trained and will always stay off your furniture. Take me with you on car rides and that will be the icing on the cake.

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.

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.

Who said playtime is just for puppies? My name is a Wilhemina, and I'm a 5-year-old Presa Canario. 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 regardless. I'm beautiful with a brindle color. I came into rescue in pretty rough shape, but with a lot of groceries and love, I'm 110% better and ready to find that special place just for me.

I am house trained, crate trained & leash trained  and know the commands sit, stay, come and kennel. I ADORE car rides - especially when we go cool places like the mountains!

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.

Gorgeous Gaiya is a 3.5 yr old female, Harlequin Great Dane who is all sugar and kisses.

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.

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.
