Facts about Chutes

  • Breed: Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
Chutes is compact, adorable, loving pup. At first glance, you can tell she is a little unique. Chutes has muscular hypertrophy, which means she has double the muscles she should have. When dogs are bred to have more muscles than they should, like Chutes, it can lead to other problems. Chutes’ biggest issue is her narrowed throat passage, causing asthma. The muscles press, since there are double as many as there should be, and suffocate her. Thankfully, she has responded well to her treatments, and as long as they are maintained (2ish times a year), she is a-okay!

Chutes is house and crate trained. She LOVES dogs and people and snuggling with both is her favorite pastime. Chutes enjoys her kitty friends as well, and never turns down an opportunity to catch a smooch from her friends. Chutes is 3 years old, so she has a long life ahead of her yet.

Due to her hypertrophy, chutes needs a home with minimal stairs or an apartment with an elevator. She simply cannot climb a regular staircase every single day and can’t go to a home that would require this of her. She needs minimal exercise as well, so runners, this isn’t your dog. Keeping her cool would be a top priority as well, as she could overheat easily.
Chutes needs a new BFF and a couch to call her own, so if you think you fit the bill, email and submit an app today!

About Big Fluffy Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Big Fluffy Dog Rescue is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to helping giant breed mixed breed dogs in need. We value dogs of all breeds, but we specialize in what the name says: big, fluffy dogs. We have volunteers in several states in the South and New England who work to help homeless big fluffy dogs find a home to call their own. Big Fluffy Dog Rescue works to save Great Pyrenees, Saint Bernards, Newfoundlands and their mixes from euthanasia.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our dogs are in private foster homes. If a foster home is unavailable, our dogs are boarded. , Once your application to adopt is approved, we will have you go to the home or boarding facility to meet your dog.

Our Adoption Process...

Your first step to adopting with Big Fluffy Dog Rescue is to fill out an adoption application. You can find it here:

Once you have done that, an adoption coordinator will call you within 7 days. We have an interview process, vet check and home visit/property verification.

Adoptions are made on a best home basis. Our goal is to have the very best home for all our dogs. We carefully screen our dogs for temperament to ensure we are placing the right dog in the right home. Keeping our dogs in private foster homes allows us to tell you all about your dog. A dog in a kennel or shelter location does not have the benefit of family interaction and it is our goal to ensure that every dog is carefully screened.

Once you are approved to adopt your dog we will set up a meet and greet at the dogs foster home. All of our adoptable dogs are in the New England area, and we encourage meetings to ensure it is the right fit.

Before taking your dog home, we require you to sign an adoption contract and pay an adoption fee of $500 for dogs over 6 months old and $600 for puppies 6 months and younger. All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, have had all shots (age appropriate in the case of puppies) including bordetella (kennel cough), rabies, and the distemper/parvo series. All of our dogs have been heartworm screened and are heartworm negative, have had a clear fecal exam and are up to date on frontline and heartgaurd. This adoption fee covers any other medical treatments the dog may have had while in our care. All vet records travel with the dog. This adoption fee also covers all transport and health certificate costs we incur. We pay $150 of our adoption fee to the transport company we use and we pay $50 for the health certificate process required by law
