Looking for a Home – Available Dogs

Many of the gentle giants that come into our rescue have been neglected or abused. Others have simply been abandoned by their owners due to a divorce, a new baby, moving, or natural disaster. We are often told that they got “too big” or “too expensive” and many of the dogs below come to us with very little training. Despite their past, rescue dogs are incredibly forgiving and very eager to please. They have so much to give and are all very special. We are looking for forever homes and permanent families who will love their new addition unconditionally and give them the love and support they need and deserve for the rest of their lives.

Available Dogs

Hello! I'm Angus, a 3-year-old, 162 pound Apricot English Mastiff/Saint Bernard mix. I'm a BDHP alum and I'm back in rescue because my family's financial situation changed dramatically and they no longer felt like they could afford the food or vet care I needed. They know I deserved better, which I appreciate!

Hi! Indigo the 8-month-old, Blue Brindle Neapolitan Mastiff/Cane Corso mix here to introduce myself! I don't really know why my last family decided I didn't fit in with their family anymore. I wasn't aggressive with their kids or anything, but I guess maybe I was just too big or too playful for them, because I got the boot.
Bowser here! I'm a 7-year-old English Great Dane. I'm Fawn with Mantle white markings - I'm  handsome if I do say so myself! I take thyroid medication which is very inexpensive but I am otherwise pretty healthy for my age.  I'm very friendly with people - I give kisses, love to cuddle, and I wag my tail a lot! I'm good with large dogs after proper intros and love my foster Dane siblings.

Howdy, I'm Moose. I'm a 5-year-old, black with a white chest and muzzle, Mastiff/Lab mix. I'm just over 100 pounds, and I'm house trained, crate trained, and I walk nicely with a head halter. My family's financial situation situation changed and they felt like they couldn't afford my medical care or quality food anymore, which they didn't feel was fair to me.

Joe here, and I'm looking for love. I'm a 2-year-old male Great Pyrenees, a handsome man, if I do say so myself. I was found as a stray, and the shelter environment was really scary. It's not a good place for a nice guy like me.

I understand that a lot of you humans have peanut allergies, but I don't think anyone could have an adverse reaction to me, as I'm pretty awesome! My name is Peanut, and I'm an 8-year-old male Cane Corso, Blue in color. I sadly had to be surrendered by my former owners along with another big dog, because they lost their home and had nowhere to keep us. So I hope the story has a happier ending this time.

Well hello there! I am Stella, the 4 year old black female Newfoundland. I am so thankful that Big Dogs Huge Paws was able to take me in! You see I was a breeding dog in Missouri and life was pretty much the inside of my dog run, until now. I am now loving the inside life and have adjusted very well to all the luxuries it brings. One of those meaning I don't have to have any more puppies... I mean, puppies are great, but I have had my fair share! 

Jazzy here to share a little about myself! I haven't much of a chance to share a lot about myself yet, because I was found as a stray and came to BDHPI from a shelter. I'm a 3-year-old, Red Dogue de Bordeaux who weighs 74 lbs currently and has an adorable underbite.

Hi, big dog lover! My name is Darla and I am a darling, so they tell me! I am a 3 year old, Black, female Great Dane who is a lover and a leaner, true to my breed. I am a pretty smart chick, if I do say so myself, and I am house trained, crate trained, leash trained, and I know sit, shake and lay down.

Well hello! My name's Ms. Drizzles and I'm a 2-3 year old, Fawn English Mastiff. I'm thrilled to be in rescue because I heard through the grapevine that my time was running out at the vet clinic where I was being held for my stray hold. It is evident that I've have a couple litters of puppies in my life, and I'm working on rebuilding some confidence after possible prior abuse, likely by a man.

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.

"Bravo" is what everyone will be saying if you adopt me! I'm Bravo, a 4-year-old, male, Mastiff mix, brindle in color, and I'm looking for the good cheer of a new home. I was surrendered with another dog and now I'd love a permanent residence. I'm house-trained and I am learning the ropes about indoor life and basic commands. I'm good with other dogs and I am presently living with four furry siblings.

I've been told that sometimes you have to ride out the storm in order to see the rainbow. That's what I'm hoping for, as my life has been pretty stormy so far. Allow me to introduce myself - I'm Gweneth, a 3-year-old female Cane Corso, black in color. I was originally purchased (adopt, don't shop, everyone!) from a horrible backyard breeder as a pup.

Howdy folks! My name is Gus and I am a 1 year old, Chocolate Merle, Great Dane/Mastiff Mix. I weigh 110 lbs currently but still have filling out to do of course at my young age. I am a pretty awesome guy, if I do say so myself, and I get along well with other dogs of all sizes, cats, and people. I love attention, pets and walks and am an all around social, fun-loving, playful pup.

Hi there! My name is Dakota and I'm a 9-year-old, white Great Pyrenees. I haven't had the best life recently, but I'm looking forward to better days ahead! I was taken into the shelter back in May because I was found running around town, and at that time I had a really bad ear infection.

My name's Thor, and I'm a 5-6 year old, Brindle Great Dane. I was found as a stray and brought into rescue from a shelter. I'm trustworthy with free roam and my foster family will be working on basic commands and leash walking during my stay with them. I have a wonderful temperament and I get along well with dogs and cats, and I love kids!

Hello hello! I'm Belle, and I truly am "the Belle of the ball," so to speak. I'm a 10-month-old, white Great Pyrenees and I was found as a stray. Not the best way to start off the first year of my life, but I know I'll see better days soon. I came into rescue limping on my back right leg and after recent x-rays it was discovered that I need an FHO hip surgery to fix me up! I can tell you I'm good with dogs and kids, and I'm really super sweet.

Howdy! Brody here! I'm a 7-8 year old, Blue, male Great Dane in the prime of my life! I'm not sure how I ended up in rescue... I was just found as a stray and taken to a shelter and then suddenly I hit the jackpot and here I am! So far I've only revealed to these humans that I'm good with dogs and very friendly. I am super mellow, laid back and in general a bit lazy and I do have some arthritis that goes along with my mature age.

Hi, guys! My name is Bronson. I am an 18 month old, Bronze, male Newfoundland. I am a sweet boy and my goal in life is to please my humans! I am still a puppy and I'll admit I like to chew on shoes and can be playful to the point of annoying with other dogs but I am learning to respect my elders. I am very curious about my new feline friends and like to chase if they run but I just want to play, I promise.

Gracie is a stunning, black, 1 year old, female Great Dane. She has beautiful white stockings on all four feet as well as a white chest and just a hint of white on the tip of her long tail. Right now she is just a bit smaller than the typical Great Dane and pretty thin, but she will fill out at her foster home now that she is getting regu

Karma is a beautiful, 4-5 year old, Blue Brindle, Neapolitan Mastiff who was horribly neglected and skin and bones when she came into the shelter. She gives full on kisses and slobbery hugs and is an all around sweetheart, weighing in at 120 lbs. She gets along well with other dogs and cats and we'll be further evaluating her around kids soon.

I hear the term "gentle giant" a lot, and I've also heard that I'm an ideal representative of that phrase. So let me proudly introduce myself. I'm Barkley, a 4-year-old male Great Pyrenees. I was found as a stray and my coat had to be shaved, so I'll be even more handsome once that fills in more. I'm very good on a leash, so let's go for lots of walks!

Smallz here, even though I am indeed a biggie. I'm a 2-year-old male Merlequin-colored Great Dane looking for a forever home. My former human mister was injured in a car accident and is no longer able to give me the time and attention I deserve, so here I am!

Meet Chubbs, the 3 year old, White, male Great Pyrenees. He and his brother ended up here at BDHPI because their owner had to move and could no longer afford to take care of them. They are very close and would love a forever home where they can remain together forever!  Chubbs is house trained, leash trained, not destructive with free roam and not a big barker either.

Max is a handsome, 3 year old, White, male Great Pyrenees. He and his brother ended up here at BDHPI because their owner had to move and could no longer afford to take care of them. They are very close and would love a forever home where they can remain together forever! Max is house trained, leash trained, not destructive with free roam and not a big barker either.

Hi, I'm Griffy! I'm a 4-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! I'm a huge boy and may come across as intimidating upon first meeting a stranger, but I am a big softie on the inside.

Hi, my name is Jimmy! I am a 1 year old, White, male Great Pyrenees. I wound up behind bars after some time spent on the streets but I have to say I learned my lesson and I am ready to become part of a family now! I was literally starving out there and was only 57 lbs when I came in, but now that I am getting regular food I am getting back to a healthy weight and feeling much better. I am a very social guy who loves people and other dogs!

Hello! My name's Marley and I'm a black and white Landseer Newfoundland/Saint mix. I'm 5 years old, and I was surrendered to rescue because I became scared of fireworks and started digging under the fence gate out of fear. My owners couldn't afford to repair or build a new fence, and they were in a rental and couldn't risk further damage.

Hi there, my name is Storm and I'm a 5-year-old, Black Brindle Neapolitan Mastiff. I'm here in rescue because my owner moved to an apartment and had to leave me for really long hours, so I wasn't getting out as much as I needed to, nor was I getting the attention I needed.

My name is Annie, and I've had a rough life, honestly. I'm a 6-year-old Brindle English Mastiff, and when I came into rescue I was severely emaciated and weighed only 63 pounds! My former owners are being charged with cruelty and neglect, and I'm hoping I'm on my way to a better life now that I'm with BDHPI! I'm good with cats and kittens, and with dogs of all sizes. I have a great recall.

Hello hello! My name is Harlie, and I'm a 9-year-old Harlequin Great Dane. My owner decided to move to Florida and didn't want to take me along. I had 3 owners previously, and honestly just want to find a wonderful family willing to love me for the rest of my life. I've got some senior needs, including some arthritis that is being managed through pain management. I'me house trained, leash trained, and obedience trained, and I'm and inside dog.

Hello hello! My name's Gracie and I'm just a year old, tri-colored Saint Bernard. I have had quite the adventure so far in my short life! I got glaucoma in one of my eyes and my owner couldn't afford to have it taken care of, so they surrendered me so I could get the care I deserve. They removed my eye due to the risk of my eye bursting, and I am doing very well now!!

Hello, my name is Captain, and I'm a 10-month-old black Great Dane! My owner's son was deployed and the other dog in the family picked on me all the time, so I was surrendered to the rescue to hopefully find a new home. I'm house trained and crate trained, and I'm good with dogs, cats, and kids, but do counter surf sometimes. I've been around kids from toddler age and older.

Poseidon here to share a bit about myself! I am a year old Harlequin (mostly white) Great Dane. I was surrendered to rescue with my housemate Liya Doo because my former family got divorced and we were living in a shelter and it wasn't working out, nor was it the best situation for us. I am deaf but I can see well luckily so I am a little special needs but really get around quite well with other dogs to follow their lead.

Penny is a beautiful, 1.5 year old, 97 lb, Fawn, Mastiff/Anatolian Shepherd mix. Her foster family is working on house training, crate training, basic commands, and leash training with a harness because she can get a little excitable. Penny is a major sweetheart to those she knows and trusts but hasn't been well socialized and will need slow, controlled introductions to strangers and positive socialization to build her confidence.

Achoo! It's allergy season, and unfortunately, my former owner had them big-time, and reluctantly had to give me up. My name is Arnold, and I'm a 2-year-old male Great Pyrenees. True to my breed, I'll bark occasionally, but I'm definitely not a nuisance barker. I'm house-trained, crate-trained, leash-trained, and trustworthy with free roam. And speaking of allergies, I myself have food allergies and am allergic to fleas!

So I've heard that Bosco is the name of a chocolate syrup that you humans enjoy. Well, I'm neither brown nor sticky… but I am pretty sweet, if I say so myself! I'm Bosco, a 2-year-old male Bullmastiff, apricot in color. I wound up here at BDHP after being turned into a shelter because I was too much dog for my prior owner.

I'm BoDell - I figure a pretty and interesting name for a pretty and interesting gal, right? I'm a 3-year-old female tri-colored Saint Bernard. I was found as an injured stray in Kansas, and because of that, my right hind leg will always cause me to have a bit of a limp. It doesn't bother me, though - it just adds to my charm! I'm house-trained, leash-trained, not destructive and I'm initially pretty submissive and timid.

Hello, I'm Maximus (AKA Max). I'm an 8-year-old, Fawn, 140 lb Mastiff Mix. I'm a pretty big guy, but don't let that fool you - I'm a pretty submissive dude. I should tell you first of all that I've got an allergy to chicken and chicken by-products, so I'll need a food that doesn't have any form of chicken in it. I'm house trained and leash trained, and I know sit.

Hello, I'm Hercules and I'm a year old, Tri-colored, male Saint Bernard! I was found as a stray and was taken to a shelter. I was found dragging a rope along with a smaller dog. One of the kennel techs at the shelter adopted me, but I am just not comfortable with children so the home wasn't a good fit for me. I'm good with other dogs and cats, but I'm a little scared of children and really just don't want to be around them at all.

Hello there! My name is Axle and I'm a 7-year-old, black Great Dane. I'm back at Big Dogs Huge Paws after being adopted by a family in 2010 because I was recently very scared by fireworks... so scared that going outside in the yard to go potty was hard for me.

Hello, Colorado and world! It's Peyton here. No, not that Peyton, but Peyton the Daniff, back again! My brother Eli and I are a bonded pair, and we were adopted from BDHP after being found as strays in Oklahoma. Our adopter is having surgery and can no longer care for us, so here we are again. Here's the good stuff about me. I'm a 2-year-old male Great Dane/Mastiff (hence the term "Daniff") mix.

Hello, Colorado and world! It's Eli here. No, not that Eli, but Eli the Daniff, back again! My brother Peyton and I are a bonded pair, and we were adopted from BDHP after being found as strays in Oklahoma. Our adopter is undergoing a kidney transplant surgery and can no longer care for us, so here we are. Here's the good stuff about me.

My name is Fifi, and I don't think there's a prettier squishier face out there than me, if I do say so myself! I'm a 3-year-old female Dogue de Bordeaux, and I came to BDHP because my owner was moving and couldn't take me with. I used to live with young children, and I do fine with kids and most dogs.

Georgia is our beautiful, 4.5 year old, female,  half Great Dane, half Bloodhound who loves all dogs big and small.  Through no fault of her own, she has had a couple of homes and is looking for a stable place to call home forever!

I'm not sure if I can hold up the sky like the mythological Atlas, but I'm pretty certain I can brighten your world! My name is indeed Atlas, and I'm a 6-year-old male blue merle Great Dane. I'm a sweet boy with a submissive personality. Kind, sensitive, gentle - all words that describe me! I'm house-trained, leash-trained, and I know the "sit," "stay," "heel," "okay," and "shake" commands.

Amadeus is a 7-year-old, 112 pound Dogue de Bordeaux. He was surrendered to a shelter because he was left with one half of the family during a divorce that that person didn't have the resources to care for him any longer. He's a lucky guy though because he's a second shot and we're glad to have him, despite some behavioral quirks! On the bright side, he's house trained, crate trained, and leash trained, and he knows some basic cues.

Hey, my name's Nana and I'm a 4-year-old, Tri-colored Saint Bernard. I'm back at Big Dogs Huge Paws along with my former housemate, Bailey, because our owner got into a bit of trouble with the law. We are really good buddies and are looking for a family with room in their hearts and home to bring us both home to live forever! Last time I was here with the rescue, I had hip surgery and am feeling much better now.

Bailey the 5-year-old Tri-Colored Saint Bernard/Great Pyrenees mix here to tell you a bit about myself! I came into rescue because my former owner ran into some legal issues and couldn't care for me and Nana anymore. Nana is another Saint that came into rescue with me and we are best buddies hoping to find a family with room in their hearts and home for us both.

Hello, everyone! My name is Simba, and I'm a handsome 2-year-old male Great Pyrenees. I was being kept in a bad situation, chained up outside and just plain not taken care of, so I'm very happy to be here at BDHP. You see, I had a horrible open wound on my nose, I was covered in filth, I was heartworm positive, and pretty darn sick initially. I am feeling much better now that I am receiving the best of care in my foster home.

Hi everyone! I'm Charlie, a 16-month-old, Brindle, female, Bullmastiff. That sounds like a mouthful, doesn't it? Well let me tell you, I am very glad to be a part of Big Dogs Huge Paws! I was found abandoned in the yard of a burned down house nearly 2 months ago. The folks who were looking after me told the rescue I'm pregnant, but I'm not telling who the dad is, because I'm not sure if I know myself. It all happened so fast!

Hi, my name is Tiny! I was born on 7/8/15 to my mom who was a purebred, Brindle, Bullmastiff but my dad is a mystery. I can tell you that my mom is the sweetest thing around and quite a beauty though so I am sure I'll grow to be quite the lovely lady myself. Right now, my daily routine includes eating and napping primarily but I will grow more playful the older I get. Once I am 8 weeks old, I'll be ready to go to a forever family!

Hi, my name is Marco! I was born on 7/8/15 to my mom who was a purebred, Brindle, Bullmastiff but my dad is a mystery. I can tell you that my mom is the sweetest thing around and quite a beauty though so I am sure I'll grow to be quite the dapper young man myself. Right now, my daily routine includes eating and napping primarily but I will grow more playful the older I get. Once I am 8 weeks old, I'll be ready to go to a forever family!

Hi, my name is Jade! I was born on 7/8/15 to my mom who was a purebred, Brindle, Bullmastiff but my dad is a mystery. I can tell you that my mom is the sweetest thing around and quite a beauty though so I am sure I'll grow to be quite the lovely lady myself. Right now, my daily routine includes eating and napping primarily but I will grow more playful the older I get. Once I am 8 weeks old, I'll be ready to go to a forever family!

Hello! I'm April, a 10-year-old Maremma Sheepdog. I've had quite the life so far, and I'm looking forward to finding the perfect place to rest and live out my senior years! I've been living in a memory care unit at a nursing home for 4 years. My original owner passed away, and the facility kept me until a new administrator decided it was time for me to go.

Hi, guys! My name is Everest. I am a 3 month old, tan and white, male Great Pyrenees. I was found in a rural area where there were lots of houses but no fences and no protection from wild animals who might see me as a tasty snack or angry landowners who might decide to shoot me for trespassing. I wasn't trying to start any trouble, just trying to find some friends to play with.

Meet our cutie pootie, Jade nka Dahlia.  Our five year old, female, fawn Bullmastiff was surrendered to the animal shelter, so her history is a mystery.  Based on the calluses on her legs, elbows and fly bites on her ears, she has spent most of her life outside.  While in rescue, Dahlia is learning the indoor comforts that every dog deserves.  She knows how to get comfortable on a dog bed and while her foster family is awa

My name is Shadow, and boy am I ever glad to be in a foster home with Big Dogs Huge Paws! I was scared to death at the shelter I was taken to. My family was evicted and they had nowhere else to go, but now I'm on to a better life! I'm a 5-year-old, female Black Mastiff Mix ready to give you all my love for the rest of my life! I am great with other dogs, but a little leery with strangers.

Hello, I'm Lola! I'm just a year old, white, female Great Pyrenees. I was living in a home with 3 cats and a 3-year-old small human, but the family was moving to a smaller home without a fenced yard, and I like to wander.

Maynard the 7-year-old, Black Neapolitan Mastiff mix here! Boy am I glad to be safe with Big Dogs Huge Paws! I was being mistreated in my last living situation, so animal control seized me and I am so glad they did, because now I'm here and no one will hurt me again. Unfortunately, I tested positive for heartworm, but I made it through treatment and I am doing great now.

I've always thought that patience and love work better than anger and roughness - don't you agree? I'm Ginger, a mere 1-year-old, female Great Dane, and I hope my new family has tons of patience and love! See, I've been bounced around a lot already in my life, through no fault of my own. One of my previous "owners" didn't feed or treat me properly, and I'm actually lucky to have gotten out of that situation and eventually here to BDHP.

Hi there, my name's Shango! I'm a 2-year-old, Fawn Boerboel Mastiff. I have some allergies that need to be managed and mild hip displaysia but no surgery is required at this time and I am not on any meds. I was surrendered because my owner couldn't afford my medical expenses, and the vet felt a dryer climate might help out with my allergies a little bit.

Sometimes, a second chance is all a guy needs. I'm Thor aka Atius, and I'm a 2-year-old fawn-colored Anatolian Shepherd. First I was a stray, then was adopted from BDHP, but my former owners couldn't handle some of my quirks.

Hello! I'm Trixie, a tri-colored Saint Bernard mix, somewhere between 1 and 2 years old. I am a mini-giant weighing 55 lbs but I have a huge heart! I'm house trained, leash trained, and I know sit, come, down, and stay. I'm also trustworthy with free roam. I ended up in rescue because I was a little too high-energy for the older dog who lived with me and my family didn't want me to hurt the other dog.

Hi, my name is Zeik. I'm a 133 pound, 6-year-old, fawn English Mastiff. I was headed toward the Rainbow Bridge until a kind vet decided to try to find me a rescue. My family took me in to the vet to end my time on Earth because I had a little run-in with a visiting child in my home (I did great with the 4 kids who lived there).

Meet, Cupcake! This adorable 2 year old, Fawn, female is a Tosa Inu(Japanese Mastiff) mixed with a Great Dane and she is unique and wonderful! She gets along well with other dogs after proper intros and has come such a long ways in a few months. She lived previously with a Bernese Mountain Dog mix and unfortunately they both ended up at the local shelter after repeatedly escaping and their owner refused to fix the fence.

Hello! I'm Lurch, a 4-year-old, white and brown Saint Bernard/Great Pyrenees mix. I was brought to Big Dogs Huge Paws with my two brothers/littermates because our owner was diagnosed with cancer and could no longer be around us. We enjoyed guarding our old property from coyotes, but we were also good inside dogs. I'm house trained, leash trained, and I know sit, down, and come.

I'd like you to meet Harriett. She is approximately 8-10 years old (we hope the vet will be able to help us with a more accurate estimate of her age) and a beautiful, black, female Great Dane mix who we initially thought was blind but it turned out she had horrible entropion which has now been fixed and she sees much better.

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.

My name is Sammy and I’m a 6 year old, tri-colored Saint Bernard.  I’ve had a bit of a rough road that has thankfully led me to BDHPI.  I’m extremely smart and know sit, stay, come, shake and speak…pretty impressive, isn’t it?  I’m very gentle when I take treats, enjoy getting love from my people and I have no interest in getting on f

Hi new friends, I'm Gracie! My owners were relocating and I couldn't go with, so I got relocated myself - into the love and care of Big Dogs Huge Paws. I was sad to see my family leave, but I know I'm about to find a forever family and I'm looking forward to that! I'm a 4 year old, fawn, female Bullmastiff. I'm house trained, know how to use a dog door, crate trained, and know sit, lay down, and no.

Don't you just love peaches? So nice and pretty and sweet? Well, that's me for sure! My name is indeed Peaches, and I'm a female 2-3-year-old Great Pyrenees/Bernese Mountain Dog Mix, tan with white and black markings. I'm a big gal at 123 pounds, but I'm house-trained and I absolutely love belly rubs from you humans!

Hello, all! My name is Avery, but I'm also called Annie. Go figure. Anyway, I'm a 5-year-old female Anatolian Shepherd. I was found as a stray, so my foster family will be further evaluating me and can give you more information. But basically, I'm a giant love bug! I'm house-trained and not destructive with free-roam. I know the "sit" and "down" commands, and I am good with other dogs, cats, and kids.

Tiny may be my name, but it's certainly not my stature! I'm a 111-pound smooth-coated, Saint Bernard, 3-year-old, male. I'm here because there was an incident in my former home where I nipped a teenager I lived with, but everyone says it wasn't my fault, as he was trying to forcefully drag me out of a kennel to move me outside.

Angus the 4.5-year-old White Great Pyrenees here to introduce myself! I came to Big Dogs Huge Paws because I had trouble getting along with the other alpha male in the house. I did great with the girls and would likely do just fine with another submissive male. I tend to be a barker like many Pyrenees, and I also like to wander so would do well with 6-foot privacy fencing. I'm house trained and leash trained, and I know sit, stay, and lay down.

Hi everyone! I am Ruby, the 3 year old, female, black English Mastiff. I'm house trained, crate trained, and leash trained. I know how to sit, and my foster family will be working with me on my manners and more commands. I only bark to alert, and I'm not a digger. If you invite me to the couch, I'll snuggle up with you, but otherwise I stay off the furniture.

Hello friends! My name is Fezzik, and I'm a 7-year-old, Fawn English Mastiff/Bloodhound Mix. I've got some skin allergies and some back leg/hip weakness, so I can't do a lot of stairs, but other than that I am a pretty great guy. I'm house trained, crate trained, and leash trained. I know sit, shake, down, and stay. I'm an inside dog, and I'm trustworthy with free roam. I don't bark, dig, or chew, and I'm not allowed on the furniture.

Queen of Hearts here and while I must admit that my name may give you the misconception that I'm not fond of those who disagree with me, let me assure that this Queen of Hearts is all about love!

Bonnie the 4-year-old, Black and White Great Dane/Lab mix here! I was found as a stray by my foster mom who nearly hit me with her car. I'm very grateful that she didn't hit me, and gave me a warm bed to sleep in instead! It took me a couple weeks to settle into my foster home. I was pretty hand-shy at firts and it took me a while to learn how to trust people again but as sweet as sweet can be now and just about the cuddliest dog you'll ever meet.

Hey there, the name is Kai.  I am the cutest little ball of wrinkles you will find around here.  I am grazing the scenes of Big Dogs Huge Paws looking for a family to love.  Hopefully there is someone out there that fits the bill!  Unfortunately, the past 2 years have been rough ones on me.  My first family abandoned me for unknown reason.  Then I had to hang around the shelter which pretty much terrified me.

Ruby, the 1.5 year old, fawn, female English Mastiff is the newest adoptable dog in the BDHP pack, and we're so excited to have her join us! Ruby is a sweet, submissive girl, but 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.

My name is Sally, and I am a Fawn, 5 year old English Mastiff. I have lived with a breeder all my life, outside and I haven't had much socialization previously. I understand I am being retired, which is good, as puppies kind of get old after a while. Not that I didn't love them, but, you know how it is. Anyway, my sister and I are now seeking a forever home, where we can live inside and have a forever family to love us.

Say hello to Moses. He won’t part the seas or bring you a tablet with words to live by, but he will be a loyal companion and promise you his undying love. Moses is one cool Cane Corso pup that is Blue in color and only 2 years old(almost 3).  Moses has been bounced around quite a bit since his original parents divorced and his mom had no place to take care of him.

Everyone, please meet Eve - the luckiest girl this holiday season. Eve was rescued with several other dogs from a breeder who is being faced with neglect and animal cruelty charges. She is a 2-3 year old, Red, female Dogue de Bordeaux who is extremely emaciated at 80 lbs, as you can see in the photos. Fortunately, her skin condition is not mange, but a reaction to her emaciation and allergies. Two nights of Zrytec has already reduced Eve's scratching.

Our sweet gal, Krissy, is looking for her forever family. You know that saying, "good things come to those who wait"? This has become her life motto as waits with her foster momma, hoping her forever family will see her. Krissy has been waiting with BDHP for a while, but in that time she's charmed our socks off. Krissy is a sweet, senior, Mastiff / German Shepherd mix. Clocking in at a cool 95 pounds, she's practically pocket sized.

Hi! I’m Loki, that long-legged, beautiful, lady that you’ve been searching for. I’m a Fawn, 5 year old Anatolian Shepherd and I'm looking for my forever love! My family was going through some pretty heavy changes, like a divorce coupled with moving, and they felt that they couldn’t provide me what I needed, so they thought it better to help me find a new home. Don’t cry for me, because I know that there is new life on the horizon!

Maggie is a 2 year old, Brindle, Fila Brasileiro.

Bebe is a beautiful, 2.5 year old, Black, female Great Dane. She is epileptic and suffers from seizures but we have them well managed on daily medication.  She is also blind but after only a couple of weeks she learned her foster home so well you can hardly tell she can't see. Bebe is house trained, not destructive, and her crate is her safe place. She will often go in to take a nap when she is feeling overwhelmed or just tired.

Napoleon(aka Bourque) is a handsome, 2.5 year old, Fawn, English Mastiff. He weighs 150 lbs currently and is just about the sweetest boy you can imagine! He is loving, affectionate, and truly devoted to his humans. Bourque is leery of men initially, but he does warm up with time and treats. He is good with other dogs and is house trained, crate trained, dog door trained and not destructive.

Chaya is a beautiful, 2 year old, Brindle, Presa Canario female. She is very sweet, loving, and affectionate to all she meets and her back end doesn't stop wiggling. She is good with other dogs, but is a dominant breed and can be aggressive. She is doing really well in a stable pack of larger dogs at her foster home with no cats or small dogs. Chaya is great with older kids! She is house trained, crate trained, and treat and praise motivated.
