Tigger and Brenda are young whippet mixes from the streets of Mexico. They are a under year old and have beautiful markings, tan with stunning black stripes reminiscent of a tiger all over their bodies. They look like mini greyhounds.

They were lovingly fostered by Melanie in Mexico until we were able to get them to BDR. These young pups are the perfect size at about 40lbs. They are smart and willing to learn and would suit any family. They may be adopted together or separately. Off course they would prefer to stay together and we would discount the adoption fee accordingly. Tigger and Brenda are very friendly with other dogs and people. 



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 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 If you have questions regarding a specific dog, or wish to inquire about adopting or fostering with us, please e-mail If you are interested in volunteering with Big Dog Rescue/Homeless Hounds, please e-mail

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 ( 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.)
