Available Dogs

Potter...yes I was named after that guy! I'm full of magic...and maybe beans...but mostly magic! I'm a 1 year old, stately, black Great Dane who is now in rescue after being found as a stray. Unfortunately, those who found me initially were threatening to shoot me but thankfully my rescue angels came through and swooped me up and I gave them all the kisses I could!

Those ears!! Bella has us all under her spell! This 5 month old, mantle Great Dane has come to us via an owner who was unable to take her with them when they moved. We have no doubt this sweet girl will be off to her forever family quickly as she is all kinds of adorable and fun...but along with adorableness comes a crazy puppy who chews, digs and barks and needs to be let out often to go potty.

Say hello to our little friend, Holly! This adorable munchkin was found as a stray and is happy to be out of the shelter and in a loving foster home now. She is 16 weeks old approximately and 40 lbs and growing. Holly is good with other dogs, shares nicely, and loves everyone she meets so far. As a puppy, she will require quite a bit of training and her foster family will get her started on the basics including house training, crate training, leash training and basic commands.

Aya, Arabic for Miracle, is our miracle baby who was the only 1 of 6 puppies born alive in her litter. Her mom, Mona Lisa, came into rescue just days prior to giving birth and was severely emaciated and unable to provide the babies and herself all the nutrients they needed to survive sadly. Aya's birthday is November 1st and she will be ready to go to her forever home on 12/27/16 when she is 8 weeks old.

Meet Matilda! She is a 16 month old, Black Brindle, female Neapolitan Mastiff. She is overjoyed to be here with BDHPI after a narrow escape from a future of being used as a breeder dog at an auction. She would much rather be part of a loving family and an indoor pet and is finally getting her shot at learning how to be a dog.

This is Mandy, a 7-year-old, bronze Newfie. She has special needs and is looking for a special home. Mandy’s owner passed away and other family members are unable to care for her due to their own obligations. This sweet, submissive girl is leash trained and a couch potato. She loves liver treats and car rides and gets along with other dogs, cats and kids. She’s not a barker, digger or chewer.

"The finest steel has to go through the hottest fire." Meet Nixon, he is a 3 year old Mantle Dane who has come to us with some medical issues that we are bound and determined to solve for him and get him healthy and on his way to his forever family. Nixon has wobblers disease and while his owner's were told previously he didn't need surgery, we are going to get a second opinion and make sure we are doing everything possible to ensure quality of life.

Paisley is an almost 1 year old, Black, Neapolitan Mastiff who was saved from an auction and spared a future of breeding thanks to a fellow rescuer. Since her arrival at her foster home, she has been trying to figure out the big scary world since she hasn't been very well socialized previously. She is a goofy, gangly puppy who is timid but as sweet as they come. Paisley is doing well with her potty training, crate training, and just starting to learn some basic commands.

This is Jace, a sweet 2-3-year-old fawn, male Great Dane. He was found as a stray but we have learned quite a bit about him so far and he does know “sit”, "no", and "hey" (as in no, leave it alone, back away), walks nicely on harness, he is house trained, not destructive, and, despite being emaciated, he waits and takes treats and food nicely. He loves people and is good with dogs and kids, but needs a feline free forever home.

Meet the distinguished Remington...or Remi for short! Remi is a 2.5 year old, 154 lb, fawn Old English Mastiff who is house, leash and crate trained. This big fluffy fella knows how to sit and lay down and he doesn't bark, dig or chew on anything that he shouldn't have in his giant jowls! Remi absolutely loves any toy that squeaks and it can quite amusing to watch him play with them, he's like a kid in a candy store.

How do you do, my name Brandy the 5-6 year old Great Dane/Saint Bernard mix and I love to roo! I came to BDHPI because my owners felt I wasn't good with their children, given my old age. I am house trained, crate trained, leash trained and can be inside or outside -- though I prefer the couch. I love to go on car rides, and I enjoy playing with other dogs, too. I am a little scared of thunder and water hoses, so can we avoid those?

Anchors aweigh!  Meet Bosun our 150lb., 11 year old, male (Bronze and White) Newfoundland.  This handsome boy is looking for a  home with minimal stairs as he does have arthritis. Bosun is an indoor dog who is trustworthy with free roam. He is leash trained, enjoys car rides and knows sit. He barks to alert and is not allowed on the furniture. He does not dig or chew and has lived with dogs, cats and children.

Sweet sweet Sparky is a young, fawn, Mastiff mix who even though a little shy he loves people but kids are his favorite! He is always seeking out their company and affection because it makes him happy. He belonged to an elderly lady who passed away and he then went to live with a family member who was arrested and sent to jail for a lengthy amount of time so her boyfriend then took him to another town and unceremoniously dumped him.

This beautiful senior Harlequin Great Dane is Daisy. She came to Big Dogs Huge Paws from the local Humane Society as a stray, so, unfortunately, very little is known about this girl—including her exact age. However, this girl has shown herself to be well-mannered, healthy (but thin), gentle and good with dogs. It takes a special home to adopt a senior, knowing that time can be uncertain.

Quin is a 5 month old, brindle 'Gladiator Dane' which just means this cute bundle of fur is a Dane/Mastiff mix. Quin is 55lbs of silly puppy that has unfortunately not had the best socializing up until this point so he can be timid but not fearful. He is house trained and crate trained and he loves other dogs, but prefers to dine alone which easy enough in crate or another room.
