Available Dogs

Hi friends! My name is Skye and boy do I have a story to tell you! Three years ago my sister and I were born into this world and through no fault of our own we were born deaf & blind. We were born deaf & blind because an irresponsible backyard breeder used their 2 harlequins to produce a litter of puppies and this caused a genetic defect called the double merle gene.

Hi, Bear here! Bear as in a teddy bear, not a grizzly bear!  I am a 2 year old, brindle, male English Mastiff.  I am house trained and crate trained, although I am trustworthy of free roam. I am not a barker, digger, or a chewer and am a total couch potato!  I am good with kids and most other dogs.  Upon meeting other dogs I can be fearful and bark - I definitely need proper introductions, but I warm right up. Cats are unknown creatures to me.

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.

Hello there, I'm Bella. I'm a 7-year-old, Grey Brindle, female Irish Wolfhound. I'm here with rescue because my owner passed away. I'm really missing my owner and my Dalmation friend who lived with me, but I'm glad someone was willing to help me find a new home and I am doing great with the other dogs in my foster home and the tiny human who runs around the place. I'm house trained, crate trained, and leash trained.

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.

Maggie is a darling 6-year-old brindle Fila Brasileiro who came to BDHPI from a shelter in South Dakota. When she was first adopted out at 9 months old, she had the typical puppy antics, and the family didn't have time for her. So she's back with her foster family and has learned a great many things since then. True to her breed, she can be dominant at times. She has been thriving with her foster's other dogs since she is last in the pack order.
