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.

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 English Mastiff, 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.

Magilla, the 2-year-old Saint Bernard, is looking for a forever home. She knows some basic commands and is good with other dogs (cats are unknown). Magilla had a rough start and was found as a stray with 2 other dogs. This rough start has left her feeling unsure and timid in new situations and surroundings. But Magilla, simply wants to be loved, and this sweet girl so deserves it. She loves to snuggle and lay her head in the lap of those she has come to know.

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.

If you can't see the forest for the trees, let our Forrest help you! This sweet bundle of joy is a 2 year old, blue, male Great Dane who was found wandering as a stray and no family came to claim him so we sprung him from the joint! Forrest is great with other dogs and loves anyone on 2 legs, the way he figures all the more love and scratching for him. He is just new to his foster family so as we learn more about this love bug we will update his bio.

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.

Meet Graceland, the 2 year old Harlequin Great Dane who finds herself in need of some new digs and if she crosses all her paws tightly she may even get one for the holidays! Graceland has been in two homes so far - the first family surrendered her because they were moving and the existing dog in her second home wouldn't accept her in to the pack.

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.

Harley is one handsome dude!  This 10-month-old pup is looking for a forever home, through no fault of his own. He is house trained, crate trained and leash trained, but does need obedience training for all other basic commands and manners (he jumps when excited). As typical for a pup his age, he likes to chew, so appropriate chew items are a must. Harley gets along great with kids, but due to his puppy exuberance it would be better if his new home has older kids.

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 (as long as there are no valuable resources around), but hasn't been around cats yet.

Karma, the adorable 4-year-old, pocket Cane Corso, now has good karma coming her way. She came to rescue through no fault of her own and is looking for a family who understands her breed and can give her the structure, socialization and exercise she needs. She is house trained, crate trained and trustworthy with free roam. She also knows the basic commands, but if she is left outside too long and gets bored, she will dig.

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.

Zaphyna, a beautiful, 2 year old, 107 lbs tri-colored Saint Bernard is finding herself on the search again and this time we promise this sweetheart it will be her final time. Zaphyna has had a sad life, she was taken from a man who kept her outside and didn’t feed her, the lady that rescued her had her for 2 days and then she was adopted by her most recent owner back in February.

Odin the fabulous splotchy miniature cow was found as a stray...yes we know, how does one loose a horse size dog?! No one claimed this particular cow so he now with BDHPI and on the look out for a new home..one that will treat him as kingly as he deserves! Odin is 1 year old and this sweet boy is a little unsure right now of new things and people but he is doing amazing in his foster home and gaining confidence daily.

Lace is a lovely 7 year old, black, female Great Dane who has come to us due to a divorce. You see after 7 years she was not longer wanted and surrendered to the shelter. Poor Lace has never been to the vet or had any medical care her entire life. She does have some flea allergies/missing hair around the base of the tail from living in not so great conditions but this already on the mend now that she has a comfy spot to lay, proper prevention, and good nutrition.

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.

Meet our newest little cow, Ollie the 6 month old, Harlequin Great Dane. This sweetie pie was returned to his breeder due to a mild case of megaesophagus and he is now with BDHPI to find his perfect forever home. His condition is fairly easily managed and he doesn't even have to eat upright. Ollie loves to run and wrestle with other dogs and is friendly and outgoing with all he meets.

Kiki the 8 year old black Newfoundland is another lucky pup who after 8 years of being a breeding machine will finally be living the life she's always deserved. Kiki is great with other dogs, as that is primarily all she has known, so it would be best if she had other doggie siblings to follow their lead.

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.

Howdy from this adorable black boy, Birmingham! He is an 8 year old, black, neutered male Newfie who is so happy not to be in the business of puppies anymore. This boy needed some TLC, which his foster family was happy to provide. Now he's ready to go on to the bestest, forever family. He only eats when he's hungry - wants to keep looking slim and adorable for life. He is good with dogs and kids, and he might even be good with cats.

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.

Meet our newest Belle of the ball! This Belle is a 2 year old, fawn, female Great Dane who is gracing us with her presence while we help her search for her forever family. Belle is house trained, crate trained and knows how to walk on a leash like a lady. She is also obedience trained and knows all of her basic commands. On occasion, you might see her trying to take a snack of the counter so just make sure there is nothing tempting left out for this silly girl.

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.

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.

Lindy is a 7 year old, Mantle, female Great Dane who was rescued from a hoarder who was breeding them. Lindy and 70 other Danes were thankfully taken from this place and she is now enjoying the life she has always dreamt of! Lindy is a little overweight at 130 lbs but her foster family is working on that. She recently had a thyroid panel that was normal so it's doggy bootcamp for her!

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!

Deacon is a 6-7 year old, black Great Dane who has many skills under his belt. This sweet boy is house trained and crate trained but he is also trustworthy with free roam. He will walk like a gentleman on a leash and he knows all of his basic commands. Deacon of course is past the digging and chewing stages and he does not bark unless necessary. He loves to play with toys and he isn't too particular on what they are as long it's for him!

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.

Milo is a 7 year old, brindle, male Great Dane who was an owner surrender. Milo's family moved and he wasn't adjusting without having a yard now so that is on the top of his list for his new home. Milo is house trained, leash trained but needs a harness and he knows how to sit. He is of course an indoor dog who is quite the couch potato when he isn't playing with his favorite lobster stuffed toy.
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.

Aurora is a 3 year old, female, black Great Dane who has quite the list of impressive training under her belt. She is house trained, crate trained and she knows how to sit, lay down, stay, no and go girl!  Aurora is an indoor dog who enjoys the finer comforts of a bone, toys and a cushy bed. She is trustworthy with free roam and she will also bark to alert since she is making sure you know if anything is going on.

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!
What a tall drink of water this girl is! Please meet our newest addition, Chardonnay. Chardonnay was born on 12/12/16 and hasn't seen much love or kindness in her life thus far. You see this adorably sweet blue merle Great Dane was set to get transferred to a puppy mill and the deal thankfully fell apart, a rescue stepped in to save her and 23 other dogs and then we were contacted to help.

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.

Tux is an adorable, 5 year old, black and white Great Dane Mix. He is good with dogs and kids, but doesn't always realize how big he is and he would do best with no small animals. He is crate trained, house trained and knows the commands sit, down and come (treats are great motivators).

Rosie, our 8 year old, fawn English Mastiff desperately needs a loving home! This poor old lady was abused beyond imagination. She came to us skinny, was shot at, covered with fleas and ticks, has arthritis and has beginning stages of cataracts but she is doing much better now after proper treatment.  She's a very sweet, laid back gal who would make a wonderful family member.

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!

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.

I would love a home with other pup pals of any size and I love to run and play!

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.

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.

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 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.
