Facts about Big Mama

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever

  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)

  • ID#: D2015015
Big Mama came to us from a kill shelter after being dumped by her family who no longer had time for her. She was obese and could barely get around. Big won our hearts immediately with her big, sad heartbroken eyes. Since being with us she has lost weight and with the help of an anti-inflammatory is getting around like a girl half her age. She's active, alert and rules the roost in her foster home. We had hoped to change her name but just couldn't since she knew it so well and she seemed to find comfort in knowing we knew who she was. Her foster parents compromised so now she answers to Big.

She can stand up on her hind legs or jump about a foot in the air for a treat, she does love her food more than anything. Getting and giving love and attention is her second fav and she is really good at that too. She can sit and catch her biscuits and could probably learn just about anything given enough time as long as the treats kept coming; old dogs like Ms. Big can certainly learn new tricks.

Big is great with people and loves attention. She is great with children but shouldn't be with small children or toddlers as she is such a chow hound. She lives with lots of other dogs and gets along with everyone, little ones literally climb over top of her. Treat time she can grab a biscuit right out of their mouth she's so motivated and actually hasn't gotten into trouble because she is so quick.

This young at heart girl is fully vetted, spayed, current with vaccines and micro chipped and she is on flea/tick and heartworm prevention. If you are interested in adopting her, please fill out our online application found at

About Hillcrest Animal Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Hillcrest Animal Rescue is a 501c3, non-profit organization dedicated to saving as many homeless, neglected and abused animals as our resources allow. All of our rescues are placed in loving foster homes and receive thorough medical care. Each companion animal is heartworm tested and treated if positive; placed on monthly heartworm and flea/tick prevention; altered and micro chipped. Every animal receives a full complement of vaccines depending on risk and immune status. Chronic pain is not acceptable with animals in our care. We will take whatever measures are necessary to ensure that all of our animals are living free of pain and disease. To summarize our belief in veterinary care, any animal at Hillcrest Rescue receives the same level of veterinary care as if she or he were the only animal we have.
