We here at Big Dogs Huge Paws think our Senior dogs are the best around, and sweet Grimley is the newest Senior to grace us with his presence. Grimley joins us after his owner moved out and abandoned him with the owner's roommate. He's an 8 year old, apricot, male English Mastiff.
Hercules, like his namesake, is a strong boy and looking forward to his next adventures! This 10 month old, Neapolitan Mastiff, was abandoned by his previous owners at a shelter because they didn't have enough time for him. His strength knows no bounds though and he used his powers to break out of jail and is now having a great time in foster care with BDHPI while he awaits his true "forever family".

Hey! My name's Copper, and it's nice to meet you! I'm a 10-month-old, Fawn Mastiff mix, and I'm back at Big Dogs Huge Paws after getting adopted out as a puppy. It's nice to see my old friends again I suppose, but I'm looking forward to finding a forever home soon. I was returned to rescue simply because my family was expecting another child and didn't feel like I was getting the attention I deserved.

Hey! Harley here, the 3-year-old, Merle Great Dane! I'm glad to be here with my giant breed friends! I was brought to Big Dogs Hugs Paws because I wasn't great with the small dog in my old home, and I guess there was an incident with a small child, but those days are behind me and I'm on to bigger and better things. I'm so glad to have another chance. I'm house trained, crate trained, and leash trained.

Hiya! I'm Booth, the 13 month old, blue, male Great Dane and I'm so glad you stopped by to read my bio! I was living with a virtual zoo of other dogs (12 of them, truth be told!) and I'm enjoying the peace at my foster home while I wait to find my forever family. Another dog in my pack was bullying me so the family decided I'd be best to set out anew and find a place where I can gain confidence.
Meet our new buddy, Garth! This sweet 8 month old, Black Brindle, Cane Corso pup found himself dumped at a kill shelter by his previous owner. We know he lived in a home with his mom before but we don't know the reason why he got kicked out. What we do know was that he was terrified at the shelter and is very happy to be in a loving home environment now with his foster family!

Success Stories

Hi! We are Brigid and Loki! No, not THAT Brigid and Loki, we're the furry ones! We came to BDHP as a bonded pair when our former owners had to move and could not find a place that would accept us. But BDHPI came to the rescue and we have stayed with our wonderful foster mom, Suzanne, while we waited for our forever home. Now, that has finally come to be. Peggi, of Denver Colorado, wants us to come live with her and be her forever puppies!

Hi, my name is Brutus, and I am a long, tall boy! I have been doing a lot of study recently about people, and what kind of a home would be the best for me. See, I like people a lot, and I get along with dogs, cats and even kids, so my requirements are wide open. Then I began to narrow the field. I wanted kids around, nut it would be great do be an OD (only dog) for a while. I wanted a family that liked taking me with them, and that would match me in size.

Priscilla wishes to announce her change of address to the world! Sharlet of Lincoln Nebraska and Priscilla have decided to be partners. They will share Sharlet's home as Priscilla had some doubts on the wisdom of trying to share her crate. They plan to pool their love and affection, creating a home of warmth and harmony. Priscilla promises to be her gentle self and remain a couch potato most of the time. They anticipate a long and loving relationship.

Hi! I'm Roxie. I'm sorry, but I have no time to talk right now, I have a million things to do! There's packing, and grooming! I must look perfect for that first impression! Also there's the HOME, SWEET HOME sign I want  to make. I've been adopted and I do so want them to love me! Let's see, nails, you think a new collar? I just HAVE to do this right! I want a home of my own! Peter and Laurie did choose me, but I must seal the deal.

I won, it worked! I mean, gee, wasn't that a surprise! Kinda sorta. I should hang my head in shame, I really should, but I just can't! I'm too happy. By now, many of you have heard of foster fail. It is when your foster parents love you too much to allow anyone else to adopt you. Isn't that romantic! Like a fairy tale come true! Well, that is what happened to me. Mama, my REAL mama now, was so good to me, and I love her so much, that I succumbed to her charms and she to mine. And, as in all fairy tales, this is my happy ending.

Foster failure? I didn't fail anything! I came, I saw, I conquered! No one said it was wrong of me to love my foster mama with all my heart. So my canine sister and I loved each other immediately and when I saw how good my sister had it, and how foster mama took such good care of her, I decided to make foster mama Francesca my permanent mama and Albuquerque New Mexico my forever home. She was so good to me!
