Hi, my name is Big Red, and I’m just as sweet as I am BIG. I absolutely LOVE to snuggle, play, and go for walks.  My super-sensitive nose can search out any hidden food in the house... I love this game! I need a home with a human who is a strong leader; one who is familiar with my large, strong breed and who will provide the training necessary to improve on my social skills (like learning to share with other dogs) and separation anxiety.   I absolutely LOVE children, and sometimes, I catch myself longingly watching them play from afar and I miss the family that I used to know.  I would thrive in a home with older children (age 10+) because I am a little clumsy around the younger ones.  I would also prefer a home where I am the only pet.

I enjoy car rides and just like sitting in the back minding my own business. I guess it is relaxing for me because sometimes I will settle in for a nice snooze. I am working on leash training and at learning some other cool skills, and I’ve heard rumblings that I’m smart and easy to train, so with consistency I know I’ll be at the top of my class in no time. I get pretty excited for treats (especially carrots), and take them gently, so this could be a great motivator for me to learn new things. I’m an active and strong guy and would love a busy, active family, with people who might take me for a morning jog. I’m also content laying around indoors with you on rainy days. Fun Facts: I am afraid of sudden loud noises and my backyard at night in the dark, and I love chasing grasshoppers!

Don't let my big 'ole toothy smile scare you because I am a submissive fellow and just giving you a big "welcome home" grin! If you are looking to add a big, handsome guy to your family and are willing to continue my social skills training, then please fill out the paperwork to make me part of your home – my forever home!

Adoption fee is $88  which covers microchip, DAPP, Rabies, heart worm test and  spay/neuter .  Adoption fees also allow us to continue saving animals.  Please email for more information, as we can not accept calls at this time.
