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.
