Adoption

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

Meet Duke, the 3 year old fawn English Mastiff. He has come to us because his first two owners moved and were unable to take him with them, so we are promising Duke that this third time around will be the charm and this handsome guy will not be shuffled around anymore. Duke knows to go potty outside only, how to walk on a leash and he is trustworthy with free roam.

Oh Sweet Susey don't you cry for me! This adorable 6-year-old English Mastiff was a stray until a kind family found her and brought her home. Unfortunately, they don't have enough room for this 127 lb girl, so she has come to BDHP to find a forever home that will be able to give her the forever home she deserves. She is good with other dogs and kids. She is house trained, good on leash, and knows her basic commands.

Please meet Sylvia, a lovely, 7-8 year old, cropped brindle Great Dane. This darling girl was found as a stray and since no one came to claim her we decided we would and make her part of ours! Sylvia will be an amazing fit for any home as this sweet, mellow girl is friendly with everyone she has met so far. The shelter told us that she passed her dog test with flying colors, kept her kennel clean, and had no food aggression despite her condition.

This is Otter, a funny name for a female Dogue de Bordeaux, but this beautiful 9-month-old doesn’t really care. She is good with dogs of all sizes and cats, although she likes to try and play with them occasionally.  She definitely needs a big yard to do her zoomies in and ideally she'd have a playmate who will play bully style with her and be okay with it; she plays hard and makes a lot of noise.

Sometimes the sensitive youngsters grow up to be the best ones, right? My name is Ava, and I'm a 3-year-old, female Great Dane. My former family was unfortunately down on their luck, their life circumstances changed, and they had to leave me alone all the time. So I was reluctantly surrendered to BDHP. But that's okay, because I know I'll find a great forever home now.

This beautiful 85 lb, 2-year-old Blue Cane Corso is looking for a home that enjoys going for walks. Buddy is a little shy of strangers at first—true to his breed—but he does warm up quickly and is super sweet. He gets along well with small and large dogs as well as cats. He hasn't been around a lot of small children but there doesn’t appear to be any reason for concern other than possibly knocking a very small child over in his enthusiasm.

Please meet Fat Boy, a nearly 4 year old, male Dogue de Bordeaux. FB comes to us through no fault of his own and we're glad to have him. We cannot wait to show him what he's been missing out on - the joys of living inside! This sweet boy has been an outdoor his entire life and so far so good, he's enjoying his new creature comforts and has had zero potty accidents!

Boomer is a very handsome, 5.5 year old, Bernese Mountain dog who has come to BDHP with his sister Peanut to find their new forever home due to a divorce. Boomer is a wonderful, submissive, happy go lucky guy who gets along with everyone and everything - he is good with dogs, cats and kids! Boomer is also house, leash and crate trained (but hasn't needed to be crated for a long time since he's trustworthy with free roam).

Peanut is a beautiful 5.5 year old, Landseer Newfoundland who has come to BDHP with her brother Boomer to find their new forever home due to a divorce. Peanut is a wonderful girl who loves everyone and gets along with all that she meets; be it cats, dogs or kids! Like her brother she too is house, leash and crate trained but she hasn't needed to be crated for quite some time as she's trustworthy with free roam.

Hi there, it's Little Bear the Great Pyr Mix, and I'm so hoping to find that perfect "bear cave" for me. I've returned to BDHPI because I was overly protective of my new home and could be scared when startled around their young child. So I'm looking for a quiet home with a secure fenced yard, and someone that understands and appreciates my breed. I take my job of protecting the my home and family seriously and I won't let anything happen to you.

Hello, world! My name is Patsy, and I'm a 3-year-old female Cane Corso. I'm blue brindle in color and quite stunning, as you can see from my photos. I used to live with older Corgi and Lab mix canine buddies, but my owner has to move and can't take me with. I'm sad over that, but happy that BDHP will find me an ideal fur-ever home. I just know it! I'm a good girl, house-trained, leash-trained, and crate-trained.

Hello all, thank you for visiting my bio, hopefully one of you reading this right now will become my new family...I cannot wait to meet you! My name is Gypsy and I am a 3 year old, merlequin, Great Dane. I have all kinds of wonderful skills to bring to table, check me out...I am house, leash and crate trained...but I am trustworthy with free roam also.

Abby is a gorgeous, 5 year old, black female Great Dane who is what we lovingly refer to as a "teacup Dane" because this sweet little lady only weighs 85 lbs. But don't let Abby's size fool you, she still has a love for life equivalent to her giant furry counterparts and she would make a great 1st time Dane or an apartment size Dane! Miss Abby is house trained and crate trained but she doesn't really need to be crated because she is fine with free roam.

Fluff....well his name says it all! This baby polar pyr of a puppy is a 3 month old, Great Pyrenees puppy who has thankfully come to BDHP to find his forever home.

Ursa Major is a constellation of stars in the northern hemisphere. Our Ursa is waiting to become the Star of your heart! This sweet young girl is a BDHP alumni, who was adopted as a puppy and through no fault of her own has recently returned to BDHP to find her forever, forever home. Ursa is a Great Dane/Boerboel Mix who in her short 1.5 years has been moved from home to home to home as a result of divorce and even landed in a shelter that was very scary.

Bruce (aka Luke) is a black/brindle mastiff mix who was an unclaimed stray that was found dumped in the country in bad shape. He was very emaciated at 113 lbs and should weigh approximately 145 lbs but he is gaining well now he is being given regular, nutritious meals. His skin was in horrible condition with yeast dermatitis and an infestation of fleas, but all of that is cleared up now and he looks amazing.

"I will love him and pet him and call him my very own George"....well here I am folks, your very own George! I'm an 18 month old, black Daniff (which is a fancy term for saying I'm a Great Dane/Mastiff mix). I was rescued by my current mama who is unable to keep me because she has severe allergy/asthma issues from my furs.

Dutchess is a beautiful, 5 year old black female Great Dane who is great with other dogs of all sizes, kids and she also knows her basic commands such as sit and lay down. She is of course house trained and she is crate trained too if needed, but she is trustworthy with free roam as well. She doesn't chew on inappropriate things, dig holes for no reason or even get on furniture unless invited, but she is a vocal girl who likes to tell you all about it.

Who wants to own their very own Pokemon? Nidoking is looking for his forever family! Nidoking in fact is well versed in the game of Pokemon Go and he was one of the dogs that the shelter he was allowed to be "checked out" to be walked while his walker was on the lookout for Pokestops and new Pokemon to capture.

Hank is a 1 year old, white Akbash who is a total love with everyone and is looking for his permanent home. It's not very often that one our giants is deemed too short but for Hank this was the case! He was recently evaluated by a service dog trainer in the hopes he would be able to become a balance dog and while he passed his temperament test with flying colors, at only 28 inches at the shoulder he wasn't tall enough.

Rio is an adorable, 1 year old, mantle Great Dane mix. He was living with a family that had too many dogs and had to downsize per their newly implemented housing requirements. He was living with a heeler mix, a lab and two puppies and is living with a Great Pyr mix now, so needless to say he is very good with other dogs! Rio shows zero food aggression and he is just an overall, happy go lucky guy who is just a joy to be around.

This regal, gentle 8-year-old Anatolian Shepherd/Great Pyrenees Mix is Bode (now called “Leo” for Leonidas). He is looking for a place to call his own after his owner’s circumstances changed. He gets along very well with dogs and cats (had lived with 3 cats and 2 other dogs previously), and he is truly a gentle giant. True to his breed he will calmly and quietly patrol the property, mark his territory, and will bark to alert.

Spartan is a very handsome 5 month old, fawn mastiff mix who has come to Big Dogs Huge Paws from another shelter to find his family. Spartan like most puppies needs a family that is willing to work with him on a continuous basis to ensure that this young man grows up into a well behaved young man. Spartan is extremely affectionate and he loves to play - especially fetch!

Riggs the 5 year old, black Newfoundland has come to BDHP due to some medical issues that we are determined to help pin down the cause of his neck and back issues and get this big guy fixed up so he can enjoy a pain free life. Riggs is a wonderful boy who is house, leash and crate trained. He also knows many commands such as sit, stay, down, come, wait, okay, back, shake and heel.

Meet Conrad, our newest cutie pie to arrive on the scene here at BDHPI! He was born in 6/28/16 and is brindle, male Great Dane looking for his happily ever after. He is a typical pup with lots of playful energy who loves to play with other dogs and toys of course. As he grows and matures, he'll need a family with the time and resources to provide him with lots of training and socialization.

Duke reporting for duty, or is it doodie?! I am a young (can you tell by my silly joke!) 1 year old, black Great Dane who was rescued after I was unceremoniously left behind by my owners when they moved. I was sitting in the backyard watching them pack up the house, making all these trips and waiting till I was packed up too and then they didn't come back and they just left me....in the yard with no food or water.

Xena, the mighty princess warrior checking for duty sir...or ma'am! While I was named after a princess warrior the only thing I aim to fight to win is your heart. I am a 3 year old, brindle, Cane Corso who has thankfully found myself in the right place to look for a forever family who love me for me and not for the money that I can make them.

Ruby (AKA Nelly) is in the house. This 10-month-old black Mastiff Mix puppy….is just that…all puppy! She’s crate trained and knows “sit,” “stay,” “down” and “crate.” She’s not a barker, but she will chew or dig if she gets bored. Chew toys and bones are favorite toys, and she loves car rides.

Ahoy, mateys! Who among ye land dwellers is looking for a great first mate? My name is Sailor, and I'm a 1-1/2 year-old, female English Mastiff looking for a new place to dock! I'm a beautiful brindle color, I'm house-trained and crate-trained, and I know my "sit," "no," and "crate" commands. I don't bark, dig, or chew - those would be un-lady-like pastimes, after all.

Hi, I’m Ramsey, the stunning, 3-year-old, Fawn, male Bullmastiff. My dad and I lost our home. My dad couldn’t bear the thought of taking me to a shelter, so as luck would have it, one thing led to another, and now I’m here with Big Dogs Huge Paws. I’m a little bit leery of strangers at first, but I do warm up quickly.

Meet our Belle of the Ball! She is a 2 year old, special needs (deaf) white Great Dane. Princess Belle comes to us due to her owner not having the time or experience to handle a deaf dog. We are happy to report however that she is already well trained as she is house trained, crate trained, leash trained and she doesn't bark excessively (which some deaf dogs can do unknowingly) and she doesn't chew on inappropriate things.

Sissy is an 8 year old, all white Great Pyrenees who needs her forever home with her brother Hoss. This pair was surrendered by their heartbroken owner to a shelter to due changes in life circumstances. Sissy is a wonderful girl who you can't help but fall in love with! She is house trained, crate trained but trustworthy with free roam, leash trained and knows all of her basic commands - which is quite the achievement for any Pyrenees!
Meet Hoss, he is an 8 year old, white Great Pyrenees. This sweet boy was surrendered to a shelter by his owner who was completely heartbroken at having to do so but his life circumstances changed and he had no choice. Hoss is good with everyone and everything - kids, cats, dogs, adults. He is also house trained, leash trained, crate trained but trustworthy with free roam.

Jake is the name, and finding a great forever home is my game! I am a 2-year-old male Great Pyrenees, and I'm looking for a nice forever family who will help me thrive, as my past wasn't the greatest. I used to live outside all the time in the Texas heat, and I was severely malnourished.

Charlie has had a rough go of it lately (as her owner passed away) and we're here to let this sweet lady know that we've got her back, her front, her ears, well you get it; we're more than happy to be bringing her into the family. Charlie is an 8 year, fawn, female Great Dane with cropped ears. She is, of course, house trained and leash trained and she only barks to alert.

As far as trendy fashion accessories go, I think I may be the best buy out there! My name is Prada, and I'm a 2 1/2-year-old female Mastiff mix. I'll match with any outfit, as I'm a pretty brindle-colored girl. I have a smaller build, and that's perfect for cuddling - which I absolutely love. In fact, I love being anywhere my humans are.

Nala is a gorgeous, 1 year old, fawn Mastiff/St.Bernard mix who finds her in need of some new digs due to no fault of her own; her family has some bad medical news and are now having to be away from home more and more. Nala is house trained but not yet crate trained (however her foster family will be working on this with her) and like most puppies she will chew on inappropriate things at times.
Meet Mayflower, the sweetest Dogue de Bordeaux puppy you will find. This young lady was found as a stray and unclaimed and we scooped her up as quick as we could because, really, will you look at that face!! Her adorable under bite, her snaggly toofers, her squishy face had us swooning as soon as we laid eyes on her. Mayflower is wonderful with other dogs and very loving to all she has met so far.

I'm house trained, crate trained and leash trained and I also know how to sit, stay and the word "no"....I am a puppy so I hear that one a lot..in fact I thought my name at one point was YaegerNo!!

Boone is an amazing young man (3 years old) who has an impressive repertoire of commands under his furry belt - he knows sit, watch me, leave it, come, lay down (with a visual cue), stay, potty and wait (with a visual cue) however like most Pyrs, he is an independent thinker so he may need extra encouragement when practicing this impressive list of commands..but thankfully he his treat motivated! Of course he is also house trained, crate trained and leash trained.

Bullwinkle is a 2 year old, 130 lb male, tri-colored Saint Bernard. He has come to BDHP because his owner had passed away and he found himself in need of a new home and we were honored to be asked to help him on to the next stage in his life. Bullwinkle is great with other dogs and really enjoys a car ride, head out the window, ear flopping good time!

Sky the female puppy here, reporting to rescue! I was born on 4/20/16 and my dad was a Brindle English Mastiff and my mom was a black Bouvier des Flandres which is also a big dog, females getting up to 80 lbs full grown, so I have big paws to grow into I am told. My foster family is working on getting me started with potty training, crate training, and introducing me to lots of new things like dogs, cats, kids and more.

Tashi is a 5 year old Tibetan Mastiff who is looking for a new home with her bonded brother Bruno. Tashi and Bruno came to BDHP when their owners feel on hard times and were unable to keep their beloved pets. They have lived with kids, dogs and cats and with gradual integration and proper introductions she has done very well with all the other animals and likes to play with the other dogs.

Bruno is a 5 year old Tibetan Mastiff. A what you may ask? A Tibetan Mastiff is a centuries old breed that was derived to form the perfect livestock guardian in the area of Tibet. Bruno and his sister Tashi came to BDHP when their owners fell on hard times and were unable to keep their beloved pets.

Tiny was surrendered to us because his owner was having health issues and was unable to care for him properly.

Tiny is a 3.5 year old, brindle, male English Mastiff who already knows many commands and how to be a well behaved indoor dog.

Porkchop (formerly Hooch) is back to find the right home for him to be successful in. He is a chunky, wrinkly, nubby tailed Dogue de Bordeaux/Bulldog mix who is 2 years old. He does have a cherry eye issue and while he has had 2 surgeries they haven't held so he will be seeing a doggy ophthalmologist to check out what further options we have for him.

Yabbadabbadooooooo it's Wilma the 5 year old, blue Cane Corso cooling my heels here with my awesome foster family awaiting my forever home. I'd be the perfect size for a someone looking for a giant breed that is a tad more on the 'pocket' size as I'm only 78 lbs but I can assure you that my heart is just as big as some of my furry brethren. I was found as a stray and when my hold time was up I got accepted into BDHP's program.

I'm pretty sure you humans here on earth need a little dose of Pluto, don't you? My name is Pluto, and I'm a 10-month-old, 75 lb, male, black brindle, Cane Corso. I was reluctantly surrendered by my previous owner when the other dog in my house didn't really care for my puppy energy and started attacking me. It wasn't fun, and I was just being a pup! Being energetic and running around - like the rings around Saturn!
Miss Nessa is looking for her forever family. She is a 1.5 yr old, Merle Great Dane who is house trained, knows how to use a bell and a dog door, and crate trained. Nessa also knows many commands and with consistent practice and lots of treats she is more than happy to practice what she knows and we bet that she'd even be able to learn some new ones with time!

Jamie aka Etta James is our heavy hitter, Blue, female, Great Dane weighing in at 140 pounds. She would make a loving addition to the right person/family who understands a dog that might be a little scared and growl at strangers at first but given the right amount of love and affection, will make a perfect member to your team.

How do you do, my name is Cleetus! I'm a 7-9-year-old Mastiff mix. I have spent the past 5 weeks in Animal Control and let me just tell you how much I love the sweet taste of freedom! I am so grateful to my foster family for taking a chance on me and giving me a chance to enjoy the comforts of a home once again.

Lady Bug, the 6 year old, Dogue de Bordeaux has come to BDHP in order to find herself a forever home she can flourish in and be pampered. She is a bit of a smaller girl at only 85 lbs but as you've heard GREAT things come in small packages! She is a very calm, loving dog who loves to play. She enjoys being petted and have any attention paid to her. She is a wonderful example of her breed and a gentle giant.

I've heard that the name "Lobo" can be used to describe a wolf. Well, my name is indeed Lobo, but I'm far from a wolf! More like a big ol' cuddly sheep, I suppose. I'm a 10-month-old male Great Pyrenees, and I was found as a stray. I was so happy to be rescued. I weigh right around 95 pounds at the moment, and I'm eager to learn some new tricks.

I'll forever salute the boys in blue and respect them for all they do! My name is Cole and I'm a 4-5 year old Landseer Newfoundland mix. I was named Cole after Officer Cole rescued me from a ditch on the side of the road; without him I most likely wouldn't be here today. He picked me up and took me to the animal shelter who then released me into the care of BDHP and my wonderful foster mom.

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!).

Hola my name is Itati and I am a 4 year old, Fawn, English Mastiff. I'm a rather large girl weighing in at 148 lbs but hey, that only gives you more of me to love! I've been a breeding dog my entire life and was kept outside because of this. I was fed a very low quality food and am very excited to become an indoor girl and put all of that behind me. My new high quality diet will have me in ship shape form with a gorgeous new coat before you know it!

Most people love their Nana, right? I'm hoping to find a home where I can find that type of love, as I feel I have a lot of love to give. My name is Nana, and I'm an 8-year-old, Black, female Great Dane. I'm a typical Dane in that I have been called "lovely and sweet" with the usual gentle giant temperament. I'm house-trained, kennel-trained, not destructive, and I'm a well-mannered mature gal.

Kiara is in the house! Hello all, l'm a 10 year old, 118 lb Saint Bernard and I've arrived into rescue because of circumstances out of my control. I lived with the same family for most of my life, but they were forced to relocate & were going to euthanize me. Thank dog I was saved by a lady who wanted to make sure that didn't happen, and now I'm at BDHPI.

My name is Addison, but my friends call me Addie. I'm a 3 month old, female Newfoundland. Some say I am a super fluffy, cute bundle of joy...others say crazy puppy with sharp teeth who has much to learn....I say it depends on the day! I was thankfully surrendered by my breeder to BDHP because I was born with genetic conditions called PDA, SAS, and Severe Pulmonic Valve Stenosis.

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. I should  probably just stick with large dogs from here on out to be safe. I've been cat tested and did just fine with them, but I haven't had a ton of experience with them.

Salt here and I'm coming to BDHP due to some sad circumstances. My mama had to surrender me because my daddy passed away a year ago and she cannot afford our old house anymore so we have to part ways so we can both get back on our feet. I am a 4 year old, Harlequin, female Great Dane and I'm house trained, leash trained and an inside dog. I am trustyworthy with free roam and I only bark to alert.

I feel pretty, oh so pretty, so pretty and witty and bright! I am Callie, the gorgeous 3 year old merlequin Great Dane. Being a mature 3 year old, I come house trained, crate trained, leash trained, I don't dig or bark and I already know sit, stay, place, heal, down and shake. Surely you must be thinking that I could not get any better than this, but folks, let me tell you, I do!

Hi, I’m Seamus (and no, it’s pronounced Shay-mus). I’m a 7-year-old, black Newfoundland (mature gentleman out of the puppy stage so you don’t have to worry about those antics). I’m back in rescue—though due to no fault of my own, I might add. My family is moving, and they were unable to take me and my fur sibling along.

HELLO! My name is Khloe, and I'm an 11-mo-old, tri-colored, female Saint Bernard. My family is moving out of state, and I can't go with them -- would you have a place for me? I've lived with children of all ages, so we're all good there. I tend to play a little rough with other dogs, but I really like them a lot and would love another big playmate to run and wrestle with or the opportunity to go to the dog park or daycare regularly otherwise.

Hi there, I’m Skye! I’m a 3-year-old, white, harlequin, female Great Dane. My sister and I came to Rocky Mountain Great Dane Rescue from Big Bones Canine Rescue. I have been with them a year now so my friends at Big Dogs Huge Paws are trying to help me out as well because us rescues should work together and I deserve a family. I’m mostly deaf and partially blind, but it just makes me all the cuter. I would do best as an only dog.

Hey, I’m Cleo! I’m a 3-year-old, white, harlequin, female Great Dane. I’m mostly deaf and completely blind, but that just makes me all the sweeter. My sister and I came to Rocky Mountain Great Dane Rescue from Big Bones Canine Rescue. I have been with them a year now so my friends at Big Dogs Huge Paws are trying to help me out as well because us rescues should work together and I deserve a family. I’m so ready to find a forever home to call my own.

"In sleep he sang to me...In dreams he came...That voice which calls to me and speaks my name...And do I dream again for now I find...The Phantom of the Opera is there..." Well I'm right here actually, no need to keep dreaming, ha! My name is Phantom and I'm a senior, Merlequin, male Great Dane with bi eyes, meaning one is blue and one is brown, so I'm quite the handsome older gentleman. I was an unclaimed stray, can you imagine?

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.

Howdy-do, my name is Frankie! I’m a 7-year-old, 106.8 lb, smooth-coated St. Bernard. I’m good with dogs, cats and kids – they’re all playmates to me and despite my age, I am still quite a playful guy. I love to run around with other puppies and get them to play -- I'm like a spry 4 year old! I am considered a total sweetheart, although I can be scared of strangers at first.

Hello there! My name is Athena, and I'm a 10-month-old, Blue, female Cane Corso. When I came to rescue, I was treated for Demodex Mange, but now I'm feeling and looking loads better! I'm already house trained, crate trained and leash trained, and I'm an inside dog. I am not a barker, digger, or chewer as long as I have plenty of proper chew toys. I have not been allowed on the furniture in the past.

Hello there! My name's Fidget, and I'm a 7-month-old, 53 lb, white and Merle puppy looking for a forever family.

Hi, I'm Sissy, a 3 year old, 100 lb, fawn, female Mastiff Mix. I am 3/4 English Mastiff and 1/4 Fila Mastiff. I found my way to BDHP after being seized from a breeder.

I'm glad this rescue is called Big Dogs Huge Paws, because that's exactly what I am - a big boy with big feet. My name is Moose, and I'm a middle aged, male, Saint Bernard. I came from a tough situation where my owner could no longer take care of me, then I found myself living temporarily with five other dogs, but some of them are pretty tiny. Like really small. Being I'm a big fella, it was hard to watch out for them all the time, you know?

Sadie is a 3 year old female English Mastiff. She has the cutest black tail and black mask. She is house rained, crate trained, leash trained with a gentle leader and knows sit, out, up, down and is working on continuing basic behavior.

Boomer is the name and getting loved on is my game! I am a 10.5 year old, Blue, male Great Dane. My previous owner died suddenly, forcing my mom to move into an apartment which didn't allow big dogs like me. I came to BDHPI with two very large tumors on my chest and foot, which have now been removed and I am healing up nicely and SO much more comfortable(they were both benign)!

Hi there, my name's Diesel and I'm a 2-year-old, Dark Merle, male Great Dane. I'm house trained, crate trained, and leash trained and I know how to sit! I'm an inside dog but I'm also a very active pup still.

Bailey is a regal, 7 year old, Tri-colored, male St Bernard/Great Pyrenees Mix. This studly fellow found himself behind bars at a local shelter as a result of his agility and protective nature which led to an incident with the neighbor's small dog after he jumped the 4 foot fence when the dog came onto his property. He lived with a large dog previously and has been okay with other more submissive dogs, big and small, with slow, proper introductions.

Hi, my name is Pearl! I am a 5 year old, light Merle Great Dane female and boy am I glad to be with BDHPI! You see, I was found as a stray and barely alive at the time. I was completely emaciated with mammary tumors and heartworm positive. My chances of adoption at the shelter were slim to none due to the medical care I would require. I am now happy to report that I've gained weight, and my tumors and heartworm have been taken care of!

Howdy! I'm Bazooka Joe, a very large, Tawny, Neapolitan Mastiff who was found as a stray and was taken to a shelter. I'm an older fella at around 7-8 years of age, and you should know right up front that I drool - a lot. If you can handle that, I think we'll probably do just fine! But you probably want to know some other details, so I'll give you what I can.

My name is Bernie, and I am a sweet, shy girl that was found wandering around the countryside. A nice family was kind enough to take me in while they looked for my owners but had no luck so I ended up at the local shelter and I was very scared there. Now, I am happy to report that I am in a foster home and I am a honey once I feel comfortable with you, says my foster mom.

Hi, my name is Fifi and you may remember me...I am a 3 year old, Red, female Dogue de Bordeaux that was recently adopted and have sadly been returned to rescue. They didn't have a yard and found it difficult to always have to walk me to go potty because I can be a bit of a handful on leash and am reactive to other strange dogs.

Jacquelyn is a 5-6 year old, Tri-Colored, beautiful Saint Bernard. She was picked up by animal control after being abandoned and locked in a vacant house for some time. Luckily, a concerned neighbor came to the rescue and she now has a much brighter future ahead of her! You see, Jacquelyn was incredibly filthy and matted and the groomer had to shave her down completely and start over.

Hi! The name's Waylon, and I'm a 3-year-old, Red Dogue de Bordeaux. Let me start by saying, I have had a terrible start to life, so I am going to need plenty of patience, time, and unconditional love. I was rescued by a wonderful woman from a terrible situation... I was kept on a chain starting at 12 weeks old until now (I'm 3, if you didn't notice that).

Say hello to our big, blue, beautiful, 5 year old, Neapolitan Mastiff friend, Lucinda! This sweet girl came to BDHPI from a breeder where her life consisted of baby making and not much else. Indoor living and being part of a loving family are new for her but despite her past, she is fairly outgoing and excited about her new adventures. Lucinda is living in a house full of other medium to giant canine friends and really enjoys their companionship.

Hello there, my name's Grizzly and I'm a 4-year-old, 140 lb, Apricot, Mastiff Mix. I came into rescue with my brother Kodiak but he has already gone to his forever home and I am still waiting for my happy ending. I'm a handsome fellow looking for a good home to call my own! I'm house trained, crate trained and I know sit, go lay down, back, and get down. I am also doing great with leash training with my harness.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Maggie is a 2 year old brindle Fila Brasileiro.
