Meet Ivory, a Great Pyrenees mix girl.  Ivory is very sweet and affectionate and she is calm and laid back. She loves attention and belly rubs, and is having a blast sunbathing in her foster's large yard - she'd love to continue doing that with her forever family.  Ivory loves people and she has been good with the children she has met.  We suggest a new home with older children and not small toddlers just because of her size.   Ivory gets along well with other dogs but she may prefer to be the only dog in her new home leaving the socializing for when she is out on a walk. Speaking of which, she will need work with her leash walking, she is good for the most part but she sometimes gets distracted. Please ask us about this lovely girl.

Ivory needs a foster or a loving forever home to lavish love and attention on her. Please open your heart and home to Ivory!

The adoption fee for this dog is $300, which includes the cost of heartworm treatment and routine vetting, including vaccinations and spay/neuter.

About Dogs XL Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Dogs XL is a new “breed” of dog rescue, committed to the philosophy that there is no such thing as a perfect dog or a perfect home. The right dog is out there for everyone who is willing to open heart and home to a canine companion. Dogs XL operates like a social networking service for dogs, designed to match people and pets based on the principles of compatibility and compassion.

As the name implies, Dogs XL specializes in finding homes for large dogs (typically 75lbs+). Large dogs are often first to be put to sleep in shelters because medical treatment and food for large dogs is more expensive than for small dog. Large dogs also take up more space at the shelter and on transports to adoptive families. Although owning a large dog is not for everyone, large dogs have many unique and endearing qualities. Here at Dogs XL, we believe the larger the dog, the more there is to love.

Occasionally, Dogs XL will intervene on behalf of a smaller dog with an XL personality. Dogs XL also works with other local rescue groups to facilitate adoptions to families that might be a better match for a smaller dog.

Dogs XL is an all volunteer, non-profit animal rescue group.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Dogs XL has adoption events on weekends at local pet supply stores in the greater Baltimore area. Schedule of Events is posted on the

Our Adoption Process...

To begin the process, adopters fill out an adoption questionnaire are contacted by an adoption coordinator within 72 hours for an interview. After the initial interview, if the adopter has current or recent pets we call the veterinarian to confirm that they are up to date on vaccinations and spayed/neutered. When possible, a volunteer will schedule a home visit to help advise adopters on how to "puppy proof" the home. Alternatively, the foster family of the dog to be adopted may come to the home to help introduce the dog to its new environment and conduct the home visit simultaneously.

Adoption Fees
Puppies 6 months and under: $350

Adult dogs 7 months to 8 years: $300

Senior Dogs 9+ years: $250

*Adoption fees help cover the cost of transportation to the Baltimore/DC area, boarding, and vetting, including vaccinations, heartworm/Lyme disease testing, flea/tick/heartworm preventative and spay/neuter surgery.
