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.

Jerry Lee the 5-year-old English Mastiff here to tell you a bit about myself! First of all, I've got a black mask and dark brindle markings, so I'm a pretty handsome guy if I do say so myself. I'm also very sweet and loyal. I do well with kids and other larger dogs, but not smaller dogs or cats, and am generally a pretty easy-going guy.

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.

I, Gus, am looking for my forever family, and I've created a list of the ten things I need from my new forever family. If you think you've got what it takes, then please keep reading
1) I'm a 6 year old, brindle mastiff mix. I have some fun energy for playing and walks, but mainly I like staring at the insides of my eyelids... aka sleeping!

Paris is a member of the around the world litter and is a Mastiff/Great Pyrenees mix puppy who was born on 10/21/14. This goofy gal has lots of love to give and enjoys the companionship of other animals. As a puppy, she hasn't had much training yet but she is eager to please and catching on quickly. She will require a new family with the resources, time and financial, to invest in raising her properly to ensure she grows up to be a gentle giant.

Hello there! I'm Zoe, and I'm a 5-year-old, Fawn with Merle markings, female Great Dane. I ended up here after moving between owners a few times. My first owner surrendered me to a shelter because they were moving to an apartment without the space for me. I lived with 2 small dogs who I did well with. Then I was adopted, but returned because my new owners said I was aggressive toward other dogs on walks.

I'm back! Titan formerly known as Buddy the Dogue de Bordeaux here, and I'm giving it another go at finding my forever family. You see, I was adopted a few months back, but after an unfortunate incident with a small dog, my owner wasn't allowed to keep me. I do just great with large dogs, but those small dogs and cats just look like furry toys to me and I get a little confused. I'm a great dog, from what my people tell me. I'm 3 years old and a male.

We're so happy to introduce the latest member of the Big Dogs Huge Paws pack, Helix! He comes to us after his owner gave Helix and his siblings to the owner's mother, and the mother couldn't handle all of the dogs plus hers so she took him to the shelter. He's been bounced around a bit lately, but we're so happy he's settling down with his foster family and getting ready to meet his forever family.

Hi there, I'm Bella. I'm 4.5 years old and a female, Merlequin, Great Dane. I'm happy to be with new friends at Big Dogs Huge Paws. My last owner was really sweet, but her hours at work changed, requiring her to be away from the house for a really really long time and it made me really sad. We also moved away from a house where I had other dogs to keep me company so I have been a bit depressed, showing some separation anxiety, and losing weight.

Hi! My name is Harley and I'm a 5 year old, male, Great Pyrenees mix. My people tell me I'm a casualty of divorce. I don't really know what that means, but it must be sad because I've left my family and am now settling in with my foster family. I'm a smaller Pyr mix - just a few ticks under 85 pounds. I'm white with black and gray markings. I'm house trained, leash trained, and trustworthy with free roam - I've always been an inside dog!

Since most folks can't afford the Bentley automobile, this Bentley is a bargain, and I think better looking, too! Yes, I'm Bentley, a 1 1/2-year-old male Great Dane. I was rescued originally by a concerned citizen where I lived temporarily with other Danes, smaller dogs, and kids.  I had a really bad case of Demodex mange at the time that owners couldn't afford and I had to be hospitalized initially because my immune system was so down.
Hey, Cooper here! I'm a 1.5-year-old, Apricot English Mastiff, and I'm here with my sister Lana. We're a bonded pair, so we'd love to find a forever home that will take us both. We came from a breeder in Denver as puppies, but unfortunately our family couldn't keep us any longer, so here we are! I'm house trained, crate trained, and leash trained, and I'm an inside dog. I know sit and stay, and I have a good off-leash recall.
Hello! I'm Lana, a 1.5-year-old, Fawn English Mastiff. I came to Big Dogs Huge Paws with my brother Cooper because the landlord decided he didn't want us living there anymore, and at the same time my mom got laid off and couldn't afford our care anymore. I sure am sad, but I'm glad I can stay with my brother and that we ended up here! We are bonded, so are looking for a forever home that will take us and love us both.
Hi guys! My name is Bernie. My mom was a smooth coated Saint Bernard and my dad was a Fawn Great Dane so I am a pretty cool mix of them both. Our humans couldn't keep me so I ended up getting dropped off at the local shelter so luckily BDHPI came to save me from life behind bars. I am a happy camper at my foster home and get along great with my 4-legged friends.

If I could talk, I'd have such a story to tell you! A story of adventure and fun, but also of never being in a home of my own, and never knowing what it means to have a family. My name is Brownie, and I'm a 5 year old, 100 lbs, male, brindle Mastiff mix. I've been a "neighborhood dog" for the past 5 years - cared for mainly by a sweet, elderly woman who fed me and let me sleep under her house.

Hello friends! I'm Haley, an 8-month-old female Brindle Mastiff mix. I'm already 86 pounds, and still have some growing to do, so I'll be a pretty big girl. I was found as a stray and was taken to the Humane Society, but I'm so glad to be here at Big Dogs Huge Paws now. It's nice being in a home now!  I am good with other dogs, and I was great with kids on the adoption floor.

Hello, Roxy the 5-year-old Tan and White Great Pyrenees mix here! I'm a pretty big girl at 102 pounds, but they say that just means there's more of me to love, and I sure wouldn't have it any other way. I came to Big Dogs Huge Paws because my mom went through a divorce and had to move in with family because she didn't have anywhere else to go. She also had to part with my littermate, Harley, who will be listed soon.

My name may be Blue, but I'm far from it! Hello there - I'm a 7-month-old male Great Dane, and I'm actually a happy boy. I'm house-trained, crate-trained, and leash-trained. My former owner did a good job teaching me some things, but he unfortunately passed away, so that's why I'm here at BDHP. I'm still a pup, so I do the typical puppy chewing thing and I am also entering my teenager years so I am starting to test some boundaries.
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!
Hello, there. I'm Shelby, and I'm looking for someone to love me instead of tether me to a fence! You see, I was abandoned at a park - tied to a fence for three days before I figured out how to break loose. And oh, am I glad I did, because I was rescued! But let me continue my introduction first. I'm a 2-3-year-old female English Mastiff, checking in at right around 145 pounds.
Sadie the Daniff here. (My mom was a Great Dane and Bull Mastiff mix, and my dad was an English Mastiff - pretty impressive bloodlines, huh?!?) My former family didn't have the time to give me the attention I deserve, so I'm here at BDHP looking for my fur-ever home. I'm 2 1/2 years old, and I have a submissive personality.

Welcome, Skye! Such a great name for a sweet, loving dog - she really is a true blue friend to all who meet her! Skye is our 1.5 year old female Great Pyrenees. She's house trained, crate trained, leash trained, and knows "sit", "lay down", "go", "stay", and "no". Like a typical Pyr, she'll alert you with a bark if she senses something out of the ordinary.

Hey there, Frank the 4-year-old, Blue Brindle Cane Corso here to tell you a bit about myself! First of all, let me tell you just how awesome I am. I'm house trained and mostly leash trained (I do like to pull when I see other dogs), I'm an inside dog who's trustworthy with free roam, and I don't bark, chew, or dig.

Hello! My name is technically Sandwich Head, but I'm being called Sammie here are Big Dogs Huge Paws, which seems to suit me better anyway. I'm a 1.5-year-old, 115 lb, Fawn Daniff. I wound up here because I've been living in a kennel environment because my owner lost her home. I was living on concrete or tile all the time, and didn't have access to a yard, so I'm pretty happy to be here and start getting to enjoy some other parts of life!

If you play your cards right, you may wind up with Blackjack! That's right, my name is Blackjack, but you can also call me Jack for short. Though being a Great Dane, I'm not really short at all. I'm a 6-year-old male, and my former owners didn't take very good care of me. They were elderly and became ill, and now they have to move to an assisted-living facility where I can't go. I haven't been to the vet in years because they couldn't get me into a car.

Vroom vroom! I'm Moto, and I'm a 4-year-old, Boston Merle, 165 pound, male Great Dane! I'm house trained, leash trained with a Gentle Leader, and I know heel, sit, down, place, outside, and out. Pretty awesome, huh? I'm an inside dog, and I'm trustworthy with free roam! I am a talker and a good guard dog, but I'm not a digger or a chewer, and I know I am not allowed on the furniture. I'm great with kids!

Hey! I'm Aspen the 5-year-old, Harlequin, female Great Dane! The very first thing you should know about me is that I'm deaf. That's OK though, because I know some sign language and could learn more, I'm sure. I'm house trained, leash trained, and which I wasn't allowed on the furniture in my prior home, I have grown accustomed to snuggling on the couch in my foster home.

Hello! I'm Sasha, a 7-month-old, Fawn, female Presa Canario! I'm house trained, crate trained, and leash trained, and I know sit already. That's pretty good for a pup, I think. I'm an inside dog, but I do bark when I play or when I'm anxious. I'm a typical puppy who likes to chew or dig when I'm bored, but keep me busy and I'm a good girl!
Hi everyone! I'm Donii and I'm a 14 month old, brindle, female, Great Dane / Cane Corso mix, and I'm so excited to be with my new friends at Big Dogs Huge Paws! I was living with a tiny dog at my previous owner's house and our personalities just didn't mix. After one little fight, my parents got scared and BDHP thankfully said they'd take me in!

Hey hey! I'm Zoie the 6-year-old Landseer Newfoundland, back with BDHP after being adopted out to a home that wasn't the best fit for me. Me and the other resident dog got into a couple arguments, and the humans weren't willing to wok through it so here I am, but I promise that I really do like almost all other dogs and just need proper introductions and time to adjust!

"Izzy" really out there? He or she - my forever family? Hello there - my name is indeed Izzy, and I'm a 10-month-old female Daniff (a Great Dane/Mastiff mix - the best of both worlds!). I had a bit of a tough break, literally, and I'm looking for a new fur-ever family. See, I was trying to jump over a fence at my previous home, but I caught my leg in the fence instead and broke my femur.
Hello, big dog fans! My name is Tank, and while that moniker may fit my size, I'm actually much more of a softie in personality. (Shhh… don't tell anyone!) I'm a 7-year-old male Bullmastiff, and my previous owner unfortunately had some life and health issues that caused her to reluctantly give me up. So this Tank is looking for a new place to park... forever.
So originally, I was thinking that "Grover" was kind of a strange name for a big fella like me. I wasn't too sure how much I had in common with this purple Muppet character. But when a friend with opposable thumbs did some research for me, I found out that the purple Grover is considered lovable, cute, and furry - so then I figured that name fit me perfectly! But enough about the cartoon guy - let's talk about the real deal.
I'm a Barbie girl, in this Big Dog world. 
Life with mastiffs, it's fantastic! 
You can brush my hair, walk me everywhere. 
I love attention, don't forget to mention...
Oh, hi there! Sorry, I just got a little carried away with my own song.
Meet our newest member of BDHPI, Ralph the 9 year old, Apricot, male English Mastiff who is one BIG gentle giant! He found himself behind bars which is no place to spend your retirement years, so the kind folks at Big Dogs gave him his get out of jail free card and he is now taking it easy at his foster home. He is house trained, knows sit, and is trustworthy with free roam. Ralph is a trooper and will stand in the tub for his baths!

Hiya friends, I'm Bullwinkle! Along with my pal and litter mate, Rocky, we've found ourselves with the fine folks at Big Dogs Huge Paws and I'm pretty excited to see who wants to bring me home forever. I'm a white, male, Great Pyrenees and I'm just shy of 2 years old! In that short time I've been with two families already but I'm hoping that my 3rd stop is the one that sticks - forever! I've been an outside, working dog up to this point.

Hellooo out there! I'm Rocky! Along with my pal and littermate, Bullwinkle, we've found ourselves with the fine folks at Big Dogs Huge Paws and I'm pretty excited to see who wants to bring me home forever. I'm a white, male, Great Pyrenees and I'm just shy of 2 years old! In that short time I've been with two families already but I'm hoping that my 3rd stop is the one that sticks - forever! I've been an outside, working dog up to this point.

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.
Hello hello! My name's Stella, and a girl like me needs a grand entrance! I'm a 9 month old, Brindle, Cane Corso and my former human got a promotion at work, so didn't have the time to give me the proper exercise and space I needed. So, I went to a shelter temporarily where I was really scared until a nice foster family came to spring me and now, here I am at Big Dogs Huge Paws!

Hi! I'm Blacky Mae! I'm an almost 3-year-old, Black Brindle, Bullmastiff, and I'm a pretty amazing girl. My sister and I came to Big Dogs Huge Paws because we were just too strong for our owner to handle anymore. I'm house trained, crate trained, and leash trained, and I've had some obedience training. I don't dig, chew, or bark.

My name is Dalilah Roxetta, and that name sure fits my personality! I'm an almost 3-year-old, Black Brindle, Bullmastiff. I came to Big Dogs Huge Paws with my sister because we were just too strong for our owner to handle, but I'm looking forward to getting out on my own and really figuring out who I am! I'm a great inside dog -- I'm house trained, crate trained, and leash trained. I've also got some obedience training.

Hi, everyone! I'm Petey the five-month-old St. Bernard, and with winter coming, you know you need a sweet, fuzzy youngster like me in your house to keep things just a little warmer! 
I'm a product of an unexpected/unwanted breeding (spay and neuter your pets, people!) and I wasn't taken care of properly for that reason. So I have some health issues that BDHP will be getting a closer look at.
Hello, Pyr lovers! My name is Jack, and I was dumped in the country with my sister, Opal. I'm just happy that we were found and that we're now safe at BDHP!
Anyway, I'm a ten-month-old male Great Pyrenees, and I weigh right around 86 pounds. I'm your usual handsome, super-sweet Pyr boy, and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE people!

My name is Bud, and I'm an awesome Black Newfoundland/Lab mix. I came to Big Dogs Huge Paws with my sister Patches. She's been my best friend in the whole world and we've been through a lot together.  While I do enjoy her companionship, as long as we both had other canine companions where we are going, we probably don't have to go together.

Hi there, I'm Patches! I'm a 5 year old, Black, Newfoundland/Lab mix. I came to Big Dogs Huge Paws with my brother Bud because our owner could no longer properly care for us. Bud's not just my brother, he's my best friend too and we've been through a lot together, but we would probably do okay separated if we had other doggie companions. I'm a bit smaller than Bud, just 92 pounds, but I'm still a pretty big girl!

Hi! I'm Abe, and I'm a 5 year old, Fawn, English Mastiff. My family discovered that the little human in the house is allergic to me, so that's how I ended up at Big Dogs Huge Paws. I can relate though, because I have an allergy to grass, so I do take 1 Claritin a day. But that doesn't stop me from being pretty amazing! I'm already house trained, and I'm leash trained, although I sure do like to chase bunnies.

Named for a Greek goddess, I would be a heavenly addition to a family who would shower me with attention.
My name is Chester, and I'm a Fawn with Merle markings, Male Great Dane. I'm quite underweight, at just 103 pounds, but I'm sure that will change with regular feedings and some time here at Big Dogs Huge Paws to fill out! I'm a bit older, but unfortunately I'm not exactly sure how many birthdays I've had and neither are the folks here at BDHP, but the vet thinks I'm around 6-7 years old.
Gunnie, aka (Johnny Carson) is a 1 year old, fawn, male Great Dane weighing around 100 pounds and another 15 pounds would do him good.  His family left him at the shelter because they did not have room for him. Sadly, part of his tongue is missing and his body does have some scarring.  While at the shelter, Johnny was temperament tested and passed with flying colors.

My name is Ashley, and I'm a 6-year-old, Harlequin, Great Dane. I came to Big Dogs Huge Paws because my former owners got a divorce and I guess that means they couldn't keep me. It's all a little confusing, the life of those humans, but I'm glad to be here now!

Hello, everyone! I'm Tonka, and I'm definitely not a toy breed (see what I did there?). I'm a 1 year old, neutered Boerboel. Everyone calls my color "fawn," but that sounds a bit wimpy for a handsome tank like me, don't you think?
I was purchased from a breeder when I was a mere pup. I was living with two very small children in a fairly small house, but my human mom has another baby on the way.
Did you ever kind of lose your way in life? My name is Betty, and that's sort of what happened to me. I was picked up as a stray, and as much as everyone wants me to tell them where I came from, I'm not talking. I'd love to, but dogs just aren't able to talk. Yet.
Sarah is a 7 year old, Brindle, female Presa Canario with cropped ears. She weighs 81 lbs and came to BDHPI from a shelter where her chances for adoption were slim to none as a senior and heartworm positive. She is now getting the medical care she needs and living the good life in a foster home with several other dogs who she gets along great with! Sarah has not been cat or kid tested yet but we should know more on that front soon.

My Goodness!  This is all so new!  My name is Stella and my brother Kingston and I are new to the BDPHI group of dogs looking for love. The King and I were surrendered by our owner because they were travelling too much and weren’t around to give us enough time and attention. So here we are starting again! I’m a 4 year old, 106 lb, Brindle, Female, Great Dane and I am quite the looker if I do say so myself.

Grrrrr! My name is Bear...but I am not the big brown grizzly type or the smaller black type of bear...I am an 8 month old, white, Akbash. I am a sweet and playful guy who is very smart and loves to learn new things. I am a champ with house training, crate training, and learning all sorts of new tricks such as basic commands and walking on leash in my foster home. I have lots of new doggie friends there too and I just love to play chase and wrestle with them all.

Welcome to Willow's world. This stunning Fawn, female, English Mastiff is 6 years old and has been in two previous homes.  Willow was loved in both homes but lack of attention due to five children moved her from her first home to her second home which had cats, and Willow was a little too interested in the cats. This love bug knows her basic commands, is good with free roam, does not chew, dig or bark.

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.

Meet Gotti, one of our BDHP mobsters. He's ready to break free from the stress of changing environments and move on to his retirement home in a loving forever family. Gotti is a 7 year old, red Dogue de Bordeaux. Gotti and his littermate, Gambino, were surrendered to BDHP by their previous family after the family realized the dogs weren't getting the attention they deserved after a new baby and changing jobs.
Starsky and his buddy Hutch were found wandering in the country...apparently their Gran Torino must have broken down after they were suspended from the police force. One thing is certain, his former owners should be in jail for letting this sweetheart get away! He is a 1.5-2 year old, mostly white Tri-colored, Anatolian Shepherd. He enjoys romping and playing with other dogs and even does well at doggie daycare.

They call me Leonidas around here and I have over-heard them saying I have had quite a rough start.  I have to tell you, I agree with them.  You see, I was dumped at a shelter with my schnauzer brother.   The first story they gave the shelter was that my previous Dad was beating my little doggie brother, and I came to the rescue and bit my human dad.  Then the story changed that it was a dog fight and my human was bit in the process of biting of breaking us all up.

Tank... that just sounds beefy, and this Big Boy is going to live up to his name. 7 year old Tank is rolling in at 146 lbs of male, brindle, English Mastiff, Love. Tank comes to us from a shelter where he was placed because his owners could no longer afford to care for his chronic ear infections and allergies. His original family couldn’t afford his care, so a friend took him in, saving him from the fate of a local high-kill shelter.

Julianna the Harlequin, Great Dane is one Special Girl. She and her special brother Tank have come to join the BDHPI family as their owner became ill and was no longer able to care for them.  Julianna is blind but you would almost never know it on a day to day basis. She is really no problem at all from that point of view. She is very outgoing and adventurous.

Meet Tank.  This 5 year old, Harlequin, Great Dane, Male is a looking for a new family to call his own. Tank and his sister, Julianna, have come to BDHPI because their owner was diagnosed with lupus and is unable to care for them any longer. Tank is what we would call protective of his house, but we think it is mostly because he is afraid as he is fairly reserved and shy in general. He just needs proper introductions with new people to make him feel safe.

My name is Annabelle and I’m the Momma to a very special puppy named Patience. I too am a Special Great Pyrenees and am partially deaf and mostly blind. I can see some light and some shapes. I’ve been living with my disabilities for my entire life, which is approximately 5 years. My owner kept me and my daughter outside so I learned how to navigate and protect my little girl in our surroundings by touch, scent and minimal sight.

VooDoo… oh the magic that you are going to do in someone’s life will be remarkable. Voodoo is a 2 year old, female, white, Great Pyrenees and she is the lovely, furry sister to Lou-doh the Great Pyr. These two pups were an owner surrender due to, space, time and attention limitations. They simply weren’t able to be cared for in a way that the owner felt they needed, so they let them go in hopes of finding them new forever families.

Truman the Big Dog is setting the stage for an encore performance. After his debut with BDHPI, Truman the 5 year old, Male, Brindle, English Mastiff was adopted by a family for almost a year. Due to moving into home that only allowed them to keep 2 dogs, he was returned to Big Dogs with best wishes in finding his forever family.

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.

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.

As children, we were all taught to love Macaroni because it is so much fun… and I’m here to tell you that nothing has changed! I’m Macaroni and you should love me because I’m all kinds of wonderful! I’m a 5 year old, black Great Dane Girl and I’m here because the rabbits ran me straight out of town.

Natalia is a 5 year old, Brindle, Boerboel Mastiff. Her massive size and good looks turn heads on each and every one of her walks. Natalia's original owners could not keep her and she was living the last few years out on the farm in an outdoor run with her brother, Beilo the Great Dane who is also in rescue with us.  She came to us with a hurt hind leg and is currently limping so we are going to have the vet's check that out right away.

Meet Nick, our large and in charge newest addition! This 3 year old, Harlequin, male Great Dane was the victim of divorce, moving, and his owner working too long of hours, requiring him to be crated up to 12 hours/day. Unfortunately, this big lug needs a lot more exercise, attention, and training than they could provide so he is now here with us at Big Dogs.
 Bielo is a 7 year old, Blue, 145 lb, male Great Dane. He lived previously with a Boerboel Mastiff and sadly his owners could no longer keep them after they moved. They were originally house dogs but have been living outside for the past few years, and we are happy to report back he quickly embraced his indoor living opportunity and has had no accidents.

Ducky is special. You can see it immediately when he walks over to greet you.  You can sense it in his charming, happy spirit and feel it in his gentle, loving touch. Ducky is a 1.5 year old St. Bernard and was found by the County as a stray. We don’t know much about Ducky, but we know that he is unique. He was affectionately named based on his “duck legs” in his hind quarters.

Krissy, we don’t know why your owner gave you away to the shelter, but we are sorry for your sadness and we are going to make it all better.There is a lot that we don’t know about Krissy’s past, like her age or medical history, but what we do know, we really like. This laid back, gentle, sweetheart of a dog is a senior, fawn, Mastiff Mix and she is a joy to be around.

Meet, Bruiser! This big guy weighs 130 lbs and is a 7 year old Great Pyrenees with a great big smile that will warm your heart. He was picked up by the ACO who noticed he was limping badly on his right leg and his owner did not want to pay to fix it. He has since undergone surgery to repair the injury and is on the road to a full recovery now! Bruiser is house trained, trustworthy with free roam, and his foster family is working with him on basic training.

Lily is a 5 year old, Tan, Tibetan Mastiff/Bloodhound Mix who looks like a fluffy version of her mom, the bloodhound, but emotionally she's all Tibetan like her dad. She is house trained, crate trained, leash trained and knows 10 basic commands, including sit pretty and rollover. She is a very accomplished young lady who has passed her Canine Good Citizen Test and is very obedient and loyal to her humans but she does require a strong leader.

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.

 Darla is an adorable, almost 2 year old, Blue, female Neapolitan Mastiff. Her entire body wiggles as she wags and she is a very happy girl! She gets along okay with some other large dogs after proper introductions and time to work out her place in the pack, but does have some aggression issues and would probably do best in a home without any other animals. She definitely cannot be around any small dogs or cats of any kind and does have a strong prey drive.

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.
