David is a Great Dane that was found starving and near death on the side of the road. Someone had dumped him to fend for himself. They did not want him because he had bad hips on both sides. The way they decided to deal with it was to dump him knowing he was unable to fend for himself. 

A kind-hearted woman in Taiwan rescued this wonderful dog and took him to the vet. David's life is starting to turn around, good food and a flight to the States. The wonderful folks at UC Davis are trying to help him walk without pain. Please, we rarely ask for help but if you can donate to David's care, that would be a godsend.
David has had surgery on one of his hips and is doing great. We think that he won't need surgery on his other hip because hes doing so well.
Hes now able to run and play. But, David's real hobby is lounging on he sofa and waiting for someone to scratch his ears. Please consider adopting Dave. Hes ready for his forever home.



 

 



About Big Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Homeless Hounds (Big Dog Rescue) is a non-profit, no-kill, 501-c tax exempt rescue which finds homes for dogs of all sizes. We have a separate building where potential adopters may visit, volunteers can have a tea break, and dogs can learn proper house manners. We only have 10 dogs at any one time, so we can spend quality time with each dog.

The only time our dogs are in their kennels is when they are eating, sleeping, or if the weather is bad, otherwise they are out in the yards playing with all their friends. In the yards they have grass to lay on, rocks to play on, dirt to dig in, and shade to rest in.

Please visit us online at www.homelesshounds.us or phone us at 707-665-0332. If you have any questions regarding the shelter itself and it's policies, or general questions, please e-mail info@homelesshounds.us. If you have questions regarding a specific dog, or wish to inquire about adopting or fostering with us, please e-mail adopt@homelesshounds.us. If you are interested in volunteering with Big Dog Rescue/Homeless Hounds, please e-mail volunteer@homelesshounds.us

Our Adoption Process...

We ask potential adopters to complete an adoption application so we can determine if the dog will be a suitable match. Applications are available for download from our web site (http://www.homelesshounds.us/). All family members must meet and agree on the dog. Once the form has been submitted, a board reviews the application, to confirm that the dog is a good match. After that a home inspection is given, to check for poisonous plants, holes in the fence, etc. If everything is in order, then the adopter will foster the dog for two weeks, as the final step in ensuring that dog and human get along well. Once the foster period is completed then the dog is officially adopted (some paperwork will have to be filled out and we request a donation to help save more dogs).
If at any time, for any reason, the adopter is going to give up the dog, the dog MUST be returned to Homeless Hounds (Big Dog Rescue.)
