Biggie Smalls' story:
Biggie has had some tough luck. He had a happy home until his dad had a heart attack. Shortly after this, his family was the victim of a house fire and his mom had a fatal stroke. His luck has to change for the better after this chain of very unfortunate events.
Even after all he has been through, he is a happy, friendly boy. Biggie loves humans of all ages but because he is completely unaware of how big he is, we are looking for a home with older children. Biggie is friendly with other dogs, but he does get nervous when they bark at him too much. He doesn't seem to mind cats, but we haven't formally tested him yet with cats.
Biggie loves to lounge around with his people. He is good on his leash unless he becomes very interested in something and wants to investigate. He has a bit of a bad habit of wanting to jump on people when he greets them, but it is nothing that a bit of training can't fix.
Because Biggie is such a BIG BOY, he is not ideal for a first-time dog owner. He is sweet and gentle, but he has no idea that he is a Great Dane/Great Pyrenees mix who weighs 175 pounds! That's a lot of weight to throw around, so his new owner will need to be prepared for a boy of his size and prepared for the cost of vet care and food bills that come along with such an incredible dog.

Home visits required and dog adoptions often do require structural fencing. (We make decisions regarding the fencing requirement on a dog-by-dog basis, according to the dog's exercise needs and energy level.) Stafford SPCA does not condone the exclusive use of invisible fencing. We reserve the right to deny placement of puppies and kittens into homes with children under 5 years old.
