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.

Roxy is coming to us as a product of divorce and while sad for her we have promised her that she will get her forever family soon and that they will love and care for her forever. Roxy is a 5 yr old, brindle, female English Mastiff who knows to go potty outside, how to walk like a lady on a leash and like most mastiffs she loves being an indoor dog. She is trustworthy with free roam but her foster family will be working on her crate training in case she needs it.

My name is Ivan, and from what I understand, Ivan is the name of a hero. All I know is I'd love for you to be my hero and give me a loving forever home! I'm a 4-year-old, male, fawn-colored Bullmastiff… about 100 pounds or so of handsomeness. My heroic qualities include being crate-trained, leash-trained, house-trained, and being good with large dogs, cats, and little people. 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. Luckily, BDHPI was there to come to her rescue and spring her from jail and she is now in a loving home environment.

Maverick is coming to us as a product of divorce and while sad for him we have promised him that he will get his forever family soon and that they will love and care for him for the rest of his days.

Ozzie is a 9 month old, fawn, male Great Dane Mastiff. This adorable mug gets along well with other dogs and cats but prefers a home with no kids. You see, children make him uncomfortable and he hasn't always responded appropriately to them in the past.

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.

Hello, my name is Calli and I'm a distinguished senior girl at 9 years of age but you cannot pass me up for that for I am a wonderful girl! I'm of course house trained and I don't dig, bark or chew like a crazy, uncouth puppy!  I am being surrendered along with Lily 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 am leash trained and trustworthy with free roam.

Winnie the Who? Winnie the Dane/Poodle Mix, that's who! I'm a 10-month-old, black and white, adorably loving Great Dane with a dash of Standard Poodle in me. I'm still a baby, so I have lots to learn. I know sit, wait, back and kennel. I'm good with other dogs and kids. I'd probably be OK with cats too -- just give me a chance to say hello. I came from a breeder who didn't have space, but that's OK!

Hi, guys. My name is Maya and I am a 4-5 month old, female Anatolian Shepherd. I am sad to say that my previous owner didn't love me enough and threw me and my brother out of a car. When a nice woman saw what happened and rescued us, we were covered in fleas, ticks, and stickers and clearly hadn't been fed in days. Now, we are safely in the hands of a foster family with BDHPI and love being part of the pack and in a loving home environment!

Hi, guys. My name is Oscar and I am a 4-5 month old, male Anatolian Shepherd. I am sad to say that my previous owner didn't love me enough and threw me and my sister out of a car.

Now, we are safely in the hands of a foster family with BDHPI and love being part of the pack and in a loving home environment!

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?

Beauty is a gorgeous, 3-year-old, black, female Cane Corso who is looking for her forever home. She was an owner surrender to a shelter due to moving and no fault of her own. She was living with small dogs and 1 other large dog and gets longs with dogs of all sizes. Beauty also gets along great with kids. She loves car rides, walks and string cheese and knows some basic commands.

Mollie the very beautifully marked 2 year old Harlequin Great Dane was abandoned by her previous owners but thankfully found by a caring citizen. Mollie is house trained, leash trained and knows how to sit pretty. She is trustworthy with free roam of the house but her foster family will also introduce to her a crate so she is comfortable with one if needed. Mollie is indeed an indoor girl and enjoys the finer comforts of indoor living, after all she is a pretty princess!

Charlotte is a 7 year old, bronze colored, female Newfoundland who is looking for a home with her sister Bijou the Pyr. Charlotte can be a bit scared of new people but she is very sweet and complacent when she has built up trust with you. She loves other dogs and takes comfort from their presence. She is good with kids having lived with 3 previously ages 9 through 14. Charlotte is house trained and crate trained, going to her crate for comfort and naps.

Bijou is a very lovely, 3 year old, tan and white, female Great Pyrenees that is looking for a home with her sister Charlotte the Newf. She is already house trained, crate trained and leash trained and while she enjoys her indoor time she is a Pyr and likes to go out for a patrol and a bark to let everyone know she's taking care of things.
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!
Henry is a very handsome 161 lb fluffer nutter...well a Great Pyrenees mix to be technical. This 7 yr guy is house trained, leash trained, knows come, sit, lay down, shake, rub belly, upstairs, inside/outside, leave it, help mama up and off. Yes we were just as impressed as you are! Henry is trustworthy with free roam and true to his breed he will bark to alert. He doesn't dig or chew and hasn't been allowed on the furniture.

Personal space is something we all need, and unfortunately, I'm here at BDHP because someone didn't respect mine. First, the good stuff. My name is Bella (AKA Gracie) and I'm a 3-year-old, female, brindle-colored Great Dane. I am house-trained and not destructive. Other dogs and cats are fine with me and I am a complete doll around adults, but I'd prefer not to be around young kids.

Hercules...yes I was named after "that guy" for many 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?! I am a 2.5 yr old Great Dane who was surrendered due to newly developed allergies and not enough time for me but I am doing ok because I'm looking forward to my forever home who will love and cherish me...I'll even take a little worshiping ha!

Dude the 7 year old, brindle, male English Mastiff is sporting a very handsome brindle coat and he's a big boy weighing in at 156 lbs! Duke is house trained, leash trained and also crate trained but he's fine if left free roam too. He also knows how to sit, lay down and come when called. Dukey is past his puppy stage and he knows to not bark, dig or chew and he doesn't get on the furniture unless invited.

Rosie, our 8 year old, fawn English Mastiff desperately needs a loving home! This poor old lady was abused beyond imagination. She's skinny, was shot at, covered with fleas and ticks, has arthritis and has poor sight.  She's a very sweet, laid back gal who would make a wonderful family member. Rosie has adjusted beautifully to her foster home and enjoys finally being loved and being an inside-the-house love bug.

Stability and love. Sometimes, that's all a guy needs. I'm Fang, and I'm a 5-year-old, male, brindle-colored "Daniff" - that's a Great Dane/Mastiff mix. I think I'm kind of the best of both breeds, if you ask me. My previous owners didn't care for me properly, I got passed around to a couple of other families that also couldn't keep me, and I came into rescue very underweight at 112 pounds.

This is Luke, a 1 to 2-year-old, Merle, male Great Dane. Not much is known about his past as he was found as a stray. However, we can tell you that he is good with dogs and is very sweet and playful. While he waits for his very own special forever home, he will be getting any needed guidance from his foster family to help prepare him for a wonderful future.

Anybody ready for this big ball of cuteness? Juno is a 6-month-old Great Pyrenees mix who is in need of a new forever home through no fault of her own.

Juno loves bones and is good with other dogs and kids (cats unknown). This sweet girl has a wonderful life ahead of her.

Hi, I’m Patches. I am a 2-year-old, tri-colored, male St. Bernard. Besides being super handsome, I’m leash trained, house trained, and I even know the hand signals for sit, down and speak. As you can see, I’m super smart and very easy to train. I also get along with my kids, dogs and even cats! So, what’s not to love? Nothing! However, I am only 2 and you know teenagers. They think they know everything and I’m no exception it seems.

Grayson is a 10 month old, boston merle Great Dane who has been in 2 homes so far in his short life.

We have promised Mr. Grayson that third time will be a charm and that his next family will be his forever home!

Hi, guys. My name is Artemis but you can call me whatever you see, I am deaf so I can't hear you anyway! I am a 4 year old, petite, Harlequin Great Dane. While I may be tiny in size, my heart is as big as they come and I am all Dane personality. I am a lover and a leaner and a couch potato. I am house trained, crate trained, and already know the hand command for "sit" and my foster family will be working on teaching me even more tricks.

Elvis is a studly, 2-3 year old, black, male Great Dane who comes to us after life as a stray. The poor guy was found dumping over garbage cans trying to find a way to sustain himself.

This is Diesel, a handsome and sweet 2-year-old, Fawn, male Great Dane. This wonderful man has had a very tough start in life that ended with him being signed over to animal control as a cruelty case. He came into Big Dogs Huge Paws emaciated and heartworm positive. However, there is no sign of heart abnormality, so treatment brings a great prognosis. He does great with kids and gets along with other dogs.

Ben is a very handsome, 3 year old, blue brindle Neapolitan mastiff that is already house trained, leash trained and he knows how to sit, stay and come when called. Ben very much enjoys his indoor life and having a snooze on his dog bed or on the couch with you if you let him! Being such a well mannered pup, Ben does not dig holes or chew on anything that he shouldn't but he is big and strong and would do best with a strong leader, true to his breed.

Lucy the 1 year old, Brindle, Cane Corso is one lucky pup! She was saved by one of BDHPI's partnering vets who saw her being advertised for "free" and wanted to make sure she ended up being spayed and placed in an appropriate forever home. Lucy is a doll who loves to play with other dogs, is great with kids, and is learning all about house training, crate training, leash training and basic commands in her foster home.

However, with understanding and reassurance, this can be easily managed.

My name is Luka the beautiful (not boasting but this is a fact), 4 year old, Mantle Great Dane.  Although I came to BDHP from the local Humane Society with my sister, Mia, we are both ready to strike out on our own.  My manners are superb - house trained, crate trained, know sit, down, and come. I do well with kids, get along with other dogs after slow introductions and am doing well with my housemates in foster care, but cats or chickens are not my thing!

Betty is a precious, 2 year old, Fawn, English Mastiff who is a survivor! You see, she suffers from Diabetes and needs daily insulin but her owner fell on hard times after losing her job and wasn't able to afford her meds. When she arrived in rescue she was in really bad shape and our vet told us she wouldn't have survived another day without medical intervention. Betty is now back on track and winning us all over with her gentle, loving ways.

Brutus the 2 year old, blue, Great Dane here to report I am ready to find my forever home.

Meet Henry! This 1-2 year old, Blue Neapolitan Mastiff is as cute as they come. Sadly, his owners dumped him at a shelter and didn't share his name so he is a bit confused but we have explained to him that his new name symbolizes a new and bright future ahead of him. He came to us with terrible cherry eyes but will be having surgery to correct that and the world will look much different moving forward as well now that he can finally see.

Rocky is coming to us due to some financial issues with his current family and we understand that sometimes life takes unexpected turns and we're here to help. He is an 18 month old, shiny black Great Dane who is a pretty well balanced guy. He is house trained and knows how to sit and wait and he doesn't bark excessively, chew on anything that doesn't belong to him or dig holes like a gopher - which for a puppy is a showing some serious constraint!

Say hello to Louise! This 1 year old, Black, female Great Dane found herself in need of a better home when her first owner couldn't provide her with the training or socialization she needed due to too many animals. She is now happily in a foster home where she is happy to be a valued member of the family and getting some one on one attention.

Do you think this Belle could be the belle of your ball? If so, let me introduce myself! My name is Belle, and I'm a 5-year-old, female Bullmastiff. My former owners moved to the country where there are lots of horses… and I just couldn't help myself. There were so many of them, and I loved to chase and run with them! I did whatever I could to run with the ponies, and my peeps thought there would soon be an accident. So that's why I'm here at BDHP.

Daphne is a sweetheart of a Neapolitan Mastiff. This 4 year old blue female was part of a cruelty seizure that involved 25 dogs, to include Fred and Wilma.

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.

Mama mia! My name is Mama, and I'm a 6-year-old, Black Brindle, female Cane Corso looking to brighten up your family! I weigh about 116 pounds right now, so I'm a decent-sized Mama.

Rock (AKA Chance) the Daniff would really, REALLY love to find his forever home after being bounced around a bit previously.

This sweet 14-month-old is Nala, the female  Great Dane/Mastiff mix needs a forever home. She lost her home when her owner lost hers.

Athena is a lovely, 2 year old white Great Pyrenees that was surrendered to a shelter due to an incident with another dog at the residence.

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!).

Kiara is in the house! Hello all, l'm a 10 year old, 118 lb Saint Bernard and I've arrived into rescue because of circumstances out of my control.

Thank dog I was saved by a lady who wanted to make sure that didn't happen, and now I'm at BDHPI.

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. I am a 4 year old, Harlequin, female Great Dane and I'm house trained, leash trained and an inside dog. I am trustyworthy with free roam and I only bark to alert.

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! 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!

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.
