Available Dogs

You know, sometimes I hear that BDHP adoptive families can't decide between a mastiff and a dane. Do they want a tall, dark, and handsome dane who will be their constant companion and friend? Or do they want a soulful, tender, and sensitive mastiff? If you're on the fence, I'm your guy! Hi, my name is Moose, and I'm a male Daniff! That means I'm a Great Dane / Mastiff mix, and I'm the best of both worlds, if I do say so myself.
Nefertiti was born on 8/4/14 and is going to be a huge black beauty once she is full grown. Nefertiti is half South African Boerboel and half Great Dane. As with her siblings she is named after a Egyptian Pharaoh. She will need continued training and socialization so it is important that her new family have the time to devote to raising her properly. Nefertiti loves exploring new things and meeting new people.
Hatshepsut is half South African Boerboel and half Great Dane who was born on 8/4/14. Needless to say she is going to be a big girl when she grows up! Hatshepsut is named after an Egyptian Pharaoh and as she continues to grow into a huge beautiful girl she will need continued training and socialization so it is important that her new family have the time to devote to raising her properly.
Thutmose is going to be a big boy when he grows up and was born on 8/4/14. His mom is a South African Boerboel ( Egypt ) his dad is a Great Dane. Thutmose is named after a Egyptian Pharaoh just like his sisters. As he is growing into his huge paws he will need contained training and socialization so it is important that his new family have the time to devote to raising her properly. He is off to a great start in his foster home with his mom and siblings.
My name is Egypt, which may conjure up images of secrets and ancient mysteries. However, there are no enigmas here. My past is not shrouded in mystery, so I'll give you the facts. I was originally purchased as a breeding female in California. Then I went cross country on a long road trip to Texas. Along the way, I gave birth to three puppies Hatshepsut, Thutmose and Nefertiti.

Some of you may remember a very special friend of Big Dogs, a 2 year old, female Dogue de Bordeaux named Cali. Well, we are sad to report that she is back with us here at BDHPI after her adoptive mom fell on hard times financially and lost her home and could not longer afford to take care of her. This mini-Mastiff weighs only 61 lbs but has a heart as big as they come! Cali had a rough start in life and was completely emaciated when she first came into rescue.

Hello, all! My name is Duke, and after a less-than-fairy-tale life so far, I'm looking for a happy ending with a forever home this time. 
You see, I used to have a home, but my owner sent me packing. I didn't understand, and I started searching for him. When I made my way back to his house, I was skinny and confused… and then my former owner said again that he didn't want me.

Our dane friend, Blossom, is back with BDHP to give it another go at finding a forever family. She was previously adopted from BDHP, but her owners have returned her after not being able to resolve a conflict with one of their other dogs. She's been living with 4 other dogs, 5 house cats, plus foster kittens - and doing great with everyone except for one 33 pound dog.

I know, I know, I'm named after that sea witch in The Little Mermaid, but let me be the first to tell you that I'm really the furthest thing from a sea creature! I much prefer romping around on dry land, and my foster mom says I'm a pretty sweet girl once I warm up. My name is Ursula and I'm a 3.5 year old blue, female, Neapolitan Mastiff.

Hey! My name's Dakota! I'm a 2-year-old, Fawn, Mastiff, and a pretty big girl at 115 pounds! I came to Big Dogs Huge Paws with my sister Shanie, and I have to say I'm glad to be here! We used to live in a home out in the country and we were inside/outside dogs. We got into a little mischief and kept digging out of our yard, but honestly it was just because we were bored and not allowed to be inside and part of the family!

Hi there, Shanie here! I'm a 2-year-old, Fawn, Mastiff Mix and I came to Big Dogs Huge Paws with my sister Dakota. I'm a little smaller than her at about 106 pounds, but I'm very skinny and a pretty big girl with lots of filling out to do! Dakota and I came here because we used to live out in the country, and we would get a little bored and dig out of our yard.

Well hello there, I am Jesse, the 5 year old Newfoundland. Have you ever had an embarrassing haircut? Well let me tell ya, I just had the ultimate haircut and had to be shaved, talk about embarrassing! My previous owners didn’t brush me, and try as I might I just couldn’t figure out how to brush myself, so I had too many mats and tangles. Do you think maybe the lack of thumbs is my problem?

Hello there, I'm Evie and boy am I glad to be here with Big Dogs Huge Paws! I'm a 2-4-year-old, Black Brindle, Cane Corso who just got out of the shelter and am now working on home life here in foster care. Boy am I glad, because a shelter is no place for me and my beautiful self! Let me share some information about myself. I'm very sweet, and my entire body wiggles when I wag my cute little cropped tail.

Meet Eiger! This 2 year old, tri-colored, male Saint Bernard was found as a stray and it's a good thing. He was extremely thin and losing hair due to a severe flea allergy and lack of proper prevention and food. Eiger is just a great big lover boy who gets along great with other dogs and cats. He is a lover, not a hater! He makes friends wherever he goes and is a class clown.

I'm Ruffles the Great Dane, and true to my name, I do have some rough ridges that a forever home can hopefully help me smooth out. I'm a ten-month-old male and I was kept outside all the time at my previous home, so my BDHP foster family will be working with me on all the things that an inside dog should know - like basic manners, socialization, and all that good stuff that I'm anxious to learn.
