My story

Hi Friends! My name is Ben!

Big Ben is the nickname for the Great Giant Bell of the giant clock the north end of the Palace of Westminster in London, though the name is frequently referred to the clock tower of London.

Out here at TBC, they also call me Big Ben because I’m just one big ole slobbery 75-pound love bug of doggy. I came here about 6 months ago with my brother, Jerry. I have quickly become one of the staff favorites because of my awesome personality. I think I’m part Boxer, but I’m not really sure. What do you think?

Play – oh heck yeah! I bet I can play fetch until your arm falls off. (Which I certainly don’t want to happen because you wouldn’t be able to play with me anymore!) My favorite toy right now is a giant KONG, but anything I can fetch will be OK by me. And, I’m a perfect gentleman on walks, which I LOVE LOVE LOVE by the way.

I’m going to need a Mom and Dad who are willing to do some extra training with me. I tend to stand up on my back legs to give strangers kisses when I meet them. Even though I would never intentionally hurt anyone, I think it might scare people because I’m so big.

And, since I’m so big, it might be best if I’m in a home with older children.

I’m here at the ranch and waiting for you to come meet me. I promise to be the best doggy ever!

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

We have a simple contract ensuring that our rescue will be well taken care of, medically and physically, will never be tied or chained, and that a secure fenced area is provided for outdoor play. We want for each a loving home and to become part of a family. Every animal is up to date on shots and spay/neuter is required.

Go meet their pets

We are open 7 days a week by appointment. Weekends are preferred. Come see our waggin' tails and happy faces on 22 acres with large runs and a 5 acre play area. Email to ask for directions and to make an appt.

More about this shelter

We started rescuing dogs in 2001 and became a non profit animal rescue in 2006 out of the sheer need to save animals from the streets, and pick up the ones dropped at our doorstep. We promote spay/neuter, and last year found forever homes for 129 animals from our location, and adopted over 400 through off site adoption..
