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

Bentley the English Mastiff here. And just like a Bentley car, I'm a pretty fine specimen, if I do say so myself! I'm a 3 1/2 year-old male. I'm house-trained and I don't dig or bark. I'll chew occasionally, so be sure and keep me busy with proper toys and treats. I know I'm not allowed on the furniture (unless you let me, of course).

Please meet our friend Kya, she's an almost-3 year old brindle English Mastiff and is looking for her forever home! She's currently with 3 other dogs, but Kya and a Corgi have been spatting over jealousy and attention lately so her owner felt it was best to rehome Kya.

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.

Hello out there! My name is Gus (though the little people in my foster family call me Gus-Gus, you know, like the mouse on Cinderella), and I am looking for a place to lay my head, forever. I was living in an apartment with my previous owner, but after 6 years together, he decided I was too big and sent me to the shelter.

We are excited to introduce our latest Saint, Louie! He's a 5 year old, tri-colored Saint Bernard. He's house trained, crate trained, leash trained, and has been an inside dog. He knows some commands like sit and down. Every now and then he has a touch of separation anxiety, but his foster family will be working with him to gain confidence. He's not a digger or a chewer, but will bark to alert.

Hi there, I'm Bear, a 5-year-old, Blue Neapolitan Mastiff. I'm a little out of sorts right now because my owner recently passed away, and I lost my sister as well. I'm looking for a new home that will understand my needs and my sadness, and will give me lots of loving for the rest of my life. I was kept outside in my last home, but I am good with other dogs, both big and small, after slow and proper introductions.

Hellloooo friends! I am Zeus the Great Pyrenees and I am here to save the day! I am one whole year old now, and life is pretty great so far. The only thing I'm missing is a family to share it with! I have been told I'm a sweetheart with a great temperment - I just love all the people I meet. I'm house trained and good with kids, cats, and other dogs. I'm calm and mellow and not a big barker.

Hello! Yoda here! No, not Yoda like in Star Wars - I'm a 1.5-year-old, Blue Cane Corso! I'm house trained, crate trained, and I know several cues already: sit, down, speak, kennel, and I'm sure I could learn even more! I'm also leash trained, and I'm good with kids and cats. I've been well socialized with many other dogs as well. I'm a 120 pound sweetheart who's just looking for a place to call home.

Hey there, my name's Nerd and I'm an almost-2-year-old Saint Bernard/Great Pyrenees mix. I'm brown and white, and am pretty darn awesome for a young Saint/Pyr mix if I do say so myself! The reason I'm here is because my family had three kids, another dog, and 3 cats and they didn't feel like their lifestyle allowed for enough time to give a big guy like me the attention I deserved. I'm house trained, crate trained, and leash trained though!

Jasper here. Woof. I'm a 2-3-year-old, male, brindle, English Mastiff. I'm a bit of a hard-luck story in that my former owners decided they didn't want me any more and time was running out for me at the shelter, but then BDHP came to my rescue! Needless to say, I'm very happy to be here in a loving foster home. I'm good with dogs and kiddos, and I know the "sit" command. I'm house-trained and very well-mannered.

Howdy folks. My name is Conway. I was abandoned by my owners and I can't tell you how nice it is to be back in a loving foster home and off the streets. It was scary out there and there was no couch to take my naps on and no dog food to be found! I am a 3 year old, Brindle, English Mastiff male. I have met all the furry siblings, cats and big dogs, and I am doing great with everyone so far!

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 believe to be mostly Blind but gets around great despite her handicap. She is extremely emaciated and has callouses and a few wounds on her body from being thrown from a moving truck and left to fend for herself.

Hello there, I'm Bella. I'm a 6-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 5-6 year old, tri-colored Saint Bernard. I'm here with Big Dogs Huge Paws because I had an incident with a grandchild at my last home, so I would definitely rather go to a home without small children. Other than that, I'm a really big, goofy guy who's really quite awesome! I'm good with other dogs - honestly, I'm pretty indifferent to them.

Nice to meet you, I'm Duke. I'm a 4 year old, blue, male Neapolitan Mastiff. I am just a big lovable guy! I love dogs of all sizes and people too once I am familiar, but I do require slow proper introductions and time to warm up, true to my breed! I really enjoy getting love and attention . I'm a loyal lug, always wanting to make sure my people are okay. I'm playful, and I love walks.

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!

Good day! My name is Baxter, and I'm a 7-year-old, tri-colored Saint Bernard. How did an older gentleman like myself wind up in a rescue, you ask? Well, I was found running around with a German Shepherd friend and Animal Control picked us up. The shelter there didn't have a kennel big enough for me, so I hit the jackpot and got to come here instead.

Hello there, I'm Syrus! I'm a 3-year-old, Merle, male Great Dane. I'm good with dogs and kids, but I'm a little leery of men who stand up quickly or make sudden movements, so that something I'll want to work on in my new home. I'm recently house trained, and am working on crate training and basic commands.

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.

Hello, my name is Sweetheart! I'm a 2-year-old Great Pyrenees with a bit of a rocky start to life. I lived outside on a farm my entire life, and I just recently gave birth to 9 puppies. My owners surrendered me to Big Dogs Huge Paws, so now my life is starting over again and I can't wait to see what it holds for me! I'm good with other dogs, cats, kids, cows and other farm animals.

Who needs salt when you can have Pepper? She's joined the BDHP crew and we love her already. She's a 1 year old, Blue Merle, Female Great Dane. She was a breeding dog and was previously kept outside but she is adjusting well to her new life inside and her foster family is working on house training and crate training along with some basic commands.

Hello, friends, I'm Diesel! I'm a 6.5-year-old, black, male Great Dane, and I can't wait to share some things about myself with you! First of all, I was brought to Big Dogs Huge Paws because my owner was facing eviction and couldn't afford me anymore. This was hard on us all, but I'm hoping I can find a great new family who will take good care of me.

Hello out there! I'm Ludo and I've been on a two year quest to find my forever family. Two whole years with not knowing if this floor was the one I could rest my head on forever, or if I'd be taken away to another house. I'm a 2 year old, male, blue/fawn Neapolitan Mastiff. I was adopted from the people who bred me, but then was given to another owner, and ultimately returned to the breeder.

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.

Have you ever been in a mood, or simply didn't want to do something? I'm Jabba, and that's how I wound up here at BDHP. See, my former owner says I'm a HUGE sweetheart, but perhaps true to my breed, I'm also very stubborn. "Selective hearing" and all that good stuff.

Well hello! I'm Miles, the 2-year-old, Fawn Bullmastiff. My previous owner left me outside a lot of the time and I would get into trouble out there - I would dig and I destroyed his outside door. But, I gotta be honest, all I wanted was to be back inside, close to my family and get some affection and loving. I'm house trained, crate trained, and leash trained (but I need a harness!).
Phoebe the 5-year-old, Harlequin Great Dane here to say hi! I'm glad to be here with Big Dogs Huge Paws because I'm hoping I'll find just the perfect home for me. I was surendered because my owner lost her home and couldn't keep me. I have some pretty significant orthopedic issues right now, but I'm hoping with some gentle care I can start to feel better. I'm house trained, and I'm not destructive with free roam.
Rover, here. Yes, typical dog name, but I like to think I'm a far-from-typical fella. I'm a 2-year-old male English Mastiff. My former owners abandoned me at a boarding kennel, so I'm hoping I can find a more caring family this time around! I'm house-trained, crate-trained, leash-trained, and I know my basic commands. I don't bark, dig, or chew.

CHEERS for Kaya! Her big dog FRIENDS are on her side!  Through no fault of her own, she was surrendered to BDHP as her family felt they did not have the time or attention she deserves. She lived with cats, a small dog and three children in her prior home. Her only bad habit is that she will bark at livestock but she is easily redirected when you say her name or whistle.

Hello there! I'm Apollo, an appropriate name for a strong fella like me. I'm a 2-year-old male Cane Corso, blue with tan markings. I'm house-trained, crate-trained, leash-trained, and I know the "sit," "lay down," "come," "roll over," "stay," "no," and "beg" commands. I'm trustworthy with free-roam, and I'll also bark to alert if something's not quite right in our world.

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.

Oakley the Dane here. While I'm not a gunslinger, I'd love to reside forever out west with a nice family! I'm a 6-year-old, female, Great Dane, with beautiful Merle coloring. My former family had to relocate on short notice and couldn't find housing that will allow a big girl like me, so I'm taking a shot (see what I did there?) with BDHP to find my forever home this time.

Hello! My name is Olive (AKA Olivia) and I'm a 3-year-old, Fawn, female Bullmastiff. I'm a sweet lady looking for a forever home that's just right for me. My last family had a little human who was allergic to me, an they tried for over a year to control the allergies with medicine but in the end it didn't work. I'm sad I lost my family but am looking forward to a new forever home!

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.

My name is Gumbo, and I'm a really special guy. I'm a 6-year-old, Fawn Mastiff. I'm a pretty big guy - 135 pounds - but I showed some signs of neurological issues when I was at the shelter so I wasn't an adoption candidate there. I'm hoping I can find the perfect home now that I'm here with Big Dogs Huge Paws and they will be getting me further evaluated to see what my future may hold.

We're thrilled to introduce our best gal, Dandy! She's a 2 year old, white, female Great Pyrenees. She's house trained, crate trained, and leash trained. She knows some commands like sit and shake and isn't a barker, digger, or chewer. She's good with dogs and *loves* kids. She'll be fine with older cats, but is too rough and playful with kittens.

Hello world, my name is Juliet! I am a 4 year old Neopolitan mastiff! I spent alot of my life chained in a junkyard, and I had a litter before I was taken to a shelter. I went home with two families but they both took me back. They said it was for "guarding" issues- what is that? Well my foster daddy says they are crazy and I get a gold star! I have a foster brother and sister and have never had a single incident.

Yip?? Yes, Yip. I get this a lot. "Why is your name Yip?", they ask. And I tell them to spend some time with me, they'll see that it fits me. At a year old, I'm still in my puppy years, and I think yipping is just as good as barking. But I'm getting ahead of myself. Hi! Nice to meet you, I'm Yip the female Great Pyrenees. I'm house trained, crate trained, leash trained, and I know how to sit.

Hi prospective family, I'm Lola, the 1 year old, black Great Dane Mix who weighs 92 lbs. I've spent half of my life in a shelter (literally 6 months!) and I'm so thankful that Big Dogs Huge Paws took me in to a real life foster home! This place is so great. They're loving me, and teaching me all about what it means to have humans around to take care of me. I am house trained, crate trained, and know sit so far.

Hi, my name is Bubbles and I am a 2 year old, Fawn, Bullmastiff female! My foster family says I have a very bubbly personality to match my name. You see, I am very social and love everyone I meet, young, old, 2-legged or 4-legged, although sometimes I may be a little timid to start! I am living with kids and 3 other dogs currently and get along great with all of them.

Hey, I'm Mayhm the 22 month old, 122 lb, Fawn English Mastiff. I came in with my sister Dejha because my family was getting a divorce and dropped me off at the shelter. I wasn't doing very well at the shelter because I am a little leery of strangers in general, but particularly men.  I have a loud, mean bark which can be intimidating, but I promise I will warm up if you give me time to get comfortable.

Hi, I'm Maizey, and I'm a 2.5-year-old, Red Dogue de Bordeaux. I was named because my beautiful eyes are yellow like corn. I'm a pretty lady, but I was found as a stray oroginally and was clearly not treated very well in my past life. I was adopted and weighed 69 lbs at that time but am now up to a health 105.

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.

Hi! I'm Ava, the 2 year old, blue brindle, female Cane Corso. I'm looking for my forever family, so let me tell you a bit more about me! I've grown up with a pug and English bulldog for siblings, but my owner had to surrender me to Big Dogs Huge Paws due to financial difficulties. I was sad to see them go, but I hear this rescue does great things for sweet girls like me. I am house trained, crate trained, leash trained and I even know a few commands!

Bourbon the Boerboel here to introduce myself! I'm a 2-year-old, tan and white/Irish Boerboel Mastiff. I'm here at Big Dogs Huge Paws because my human mom was pregnant and I just wanted to protect her. It's in my nature, I guess, and she just didn't have the time to work with me on properly managing this behavior, so here I am! I have never bit anyone, I'm just a loyal boy once I get to know you.

The Queen of Hearts had only one way of settling all difficulties, great or small. 'Off with his head!' she would say, without even looking round. Well, while our Queenie would certainly be justified in asking for the head of the humans that abandoned her pregnant and almost killed her without proper food, water, and housing, she is a very sweet girl who does not hold her past against the rest of us.

Hello there! Giselle the female Great Dane here - isn't that a pretty name for a leggy gal like me? I'm a senior at eight years old, but that only means none of that puppy behavior - I'm a lady who knows her commands. I know "sit," "lay down," "heal," "outside," "go potty," "get out," "no," and "come here" - pretty impressive, huh?!?

Merida is a headstrong, spirited, strong-willed young pup. She wants to take control of her own destiny and has honed her skill of archery, sword fighting, and racing on her horse. She intends to use these skills as she goes out in search of her forever family!
Belle is very confident and outspoken in her words and doesn't typically like being told what to do. She refuses to be mistreated, undermined, humiliated, demeaned, or controlled by her homelessness. She dreams of a life of adventure and romance! She is willing to overlook physical appearances because beyond that is what really matters, the heart.
Aurora is kind, elegant, shy and sophisticated, as well as a hopeless romantic! She is slightly naive and a carefree young pup as a result of being sheltered most of her life. She is very loyal and obeys the rules of her foster family.
Say hello to Prince Naveen! He is the outgoing, easy going, laid-back, smooth-talking, and music-loving prince of Maldonia. He has come to the French Quarter for the jazz scene and has been the victim of deceipt and a curse, turning him into a frog. After being a freeloader his entire life so far, he is now learning the value of hard work and doing things himself!
Milo is a brilliant young pup with an affinity for languages and antiquities. He is preparing for the presentation of his life...a plea to go on an adventure to find a forever home of his own, in Atlantis or wherever his expedition may take him! He is currently translating the book that will reveal who this family will be at the conclusion.
Meet, Flynn Rider! This dashing young pup may come across as a little cocky and self-centered upon first glance, but he is sensitive, laid back and good hearted, just like his name sake.
Hello out there! Etta, here. I'm just a baby - I'm only 9 weeks old! I am a cute (at least that's what they tell me), Brown, female Newfoundland. I'm good with dogs and cats. Unfortunately, I've been diagnosed with a heart problem so I won't live as long as the average puppy but I still have lots of love to give. My foster family will be working with me on learning my manners and basic skills.
HI, there! My friends call me Sophie! I am a 1.5 year old, Tri-colored, female Saint Bernard. I am house trained, trustworthy with free roam, and I know sit, down, stay and off. I really don't like to be confined at all so a crate is not my friend but I don't chew things I shouldn't or cause any destruction, I promise. I am an inside dog and I love to chew on bones and play with tug toys and Kongs.

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'm hand-shy and learning how to trust people again but as sweet as sweet can be. I'm house trained and trustworthy with free roam of the house when left alone.

Hi everyone! I'm Bella! I'm a 2 year old, female, Apricot colored English Mastiff. I've had a bit of a rough start to my life, but things have turned around and I can't wait to start life with my forever family. My previous owners got me and my brother from a breeder when we were puppies, but neither of us were ever taken to the vet due to finances.
Thor the 3-year-old, Black Great Dane here to tell you more about me! I'm house trained, leash trained, I know sit, stay, wait, lay down, and settle but I'll admit I am lacking in some basic manners and my foster family is working on rules, boundaries, and all four on the floor right now to help me contain my excitement. I'm a smart boy, an inside dog, and I will bark to alert. I'm not a digger or a chewer, and I'm not allowed on furniture.

We're proud to introduce our newest friend, Thor! He's a 4 year old, black, male Great Dane. He's a great catch, if we do say so ourselves - he's an inside dog who's trustworthy with free roam, he knows "sit", "lay down", and knows how to wait for his food. He needs some work on leash training because he is a bit of a wild child currently but with proper tools (Gentle Leader and Easy Walk Harness) and consistency he is learning.

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.

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.

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.

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.
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.

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! I’m Patches, a 5 year old Newfoundland/Lab mix.  I arrived to BDHP with my brother Bud.  Although we were great pals, we were not attached at the hip, so I was happy when he got adopted in December.   Overall my foster family describes me as a laid back gal.

 
Named for a Greek goddess, I would be a heavenly addition to a family who would shower me with attention.
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 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.

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.

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.

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.

"Yes ladies, I AM available!" 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.

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(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.

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.

 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.  He was affectionately named based on his “duck legs” in his hind quarters. His elbows bump together and his tail end is tucked under.

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.

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.

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.
