We must warn you!
The puppies pictured below can cause signs of cuteness overload illness. Here are some of the signs: You might gasp, you might scream, you will most certainly say “Aaaawwww…”. Your heart might even melt with this much fluffy goodness.
Meet our newest baby Big Fluffies. These 6 sisters are five weeks old and are Great Pyrenees/Border Collie mixes and these little ladies need names.
If you want to be part of the fun, make a 5$ donation to Big Fluffy Dog Rescue.
In space where you can fill in the company, write down the puppy name and number. A five dollar donation allows you to submit ONE name for ONE puppy. If you make a $20 donation, you can submit names for all six of them. On Sunday evening we will have a random drawing of submitted names and let you all know the winners. If you are having trouble submitting all 6 names on the company line, you can email Jessica@bigfluffydogs.com once your donation is made.
Proceeds from this contest will go toward the puppies vet care.

This is Freckles, a 12 week old English setter/Great Pyrenees mix puppy. As you can see, he is hoping to camouflage himself by the tree to avoid having to come inside. He is adoptable and he is headed to New England. Anyone interested can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Four weeks old today. These puppies need foster homes in the Nashville area for the next four to five weeks. If you are interested, email email@example.com. We will be fostering them out in twos and threes as they need the socialization with other puppies. With their Mom’s health issues, we have had to wean them much earlier than we would have liked, but they are eating well and drinking puppy milk replacer. They are adorable.
Seriously. Ridiculously. Adorable.
Puppy eats Dandelion.
New England fans, this 12 week old male Great Pyrenees mix puppy is up for adoption. He is a fluff ball of love and he does well with everyone and everything. I can’t say anything as to who is Daddy was (Mom isn’t talking), but his Mom is a beautiful Great Pyrenees who is also in rescue. If you are interested, email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Meet Michaela, an 11-week-old lab/border collie/something smaller mix. We think there may be some parsons russell terrier in there as her brother has a startling resemblance to an oversized parsons terrier, although it is equally possible her Mom was kind of a tramp and they have different Dads. Michaela is solid white except for one small splash of tan on her face. She is very calm, sweet and social and she is good with kids, cats and dogs. We do not think she will be all that large as she weighs around 12 pounds now and we expect her to be around 45-50 as an adult dog. Michaela is in New England and if you are interested in adopting her, please email email@example.com.
Enjoy kids, and yes they are adoptable. Email firstname.lastname@example.org. To see video, click on the link here: Puppy mayhem.
We have two boys in the Nashville Tennessee area that need a foster. These puppies are 1/2 Pyrenees and 1/2 German Shepherd. They are fully vetted as of tomorrow and need a foster home for a week. These boys were abandoned in a rural area and have been rescued by a very Good Samaritan. If you can help foster these two boys, please email email@example.com.
‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;
The children were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads;
And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap, Had just settled down for a long winter’s nap,
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter, I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash, Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.
The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow, Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below,
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear, But a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer,
With a little old driver, so lively and quick, I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.
More rapid than eagles his coursers they came, And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name
To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall! Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!”
As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly, When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky,
So up to the house-top the coursers they flew, With the sleigh full of toys, and St. Nicholas too.
And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof, The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.
As I drew in my head, and was turning around, Down the chimney St. Nicholas came with a bound.
He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot, And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot;
A bundle of toys he had flung on his back, And he looked like a peddler just opening his pack.
His eyes — how they twinkled! his dimples how merry! His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow, And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow;
The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth, And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath;
He had a broad face and a little round belly, That shook, when he laughed like a bowlful of jelly.
He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf, And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself;
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head, Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread;
He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work, And filled all the stockings; then turned with a jerk,
And laying his finger aside of his nose, And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose;
He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle, And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight, “Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night.”
Merry Christmas from Big Fluffy Dog Rescue
Here’s hoping that every dog in 2012 finds a safe and happy home.
File this one under “Tales of the Improbable.” 1/2 Jack Russell Terrier. 1/2 Great Pyrenees.
They are adorable and they are adoptable. In New England now. Email Elizabeth@bigfluffydogs.com.
Meet Zane, a 12 week old aussie/Great Pyrenees puppy who is still looking for a home. He is friendly, sweet and the runt of the litter. We can’t believe no one has snapped him up yet. If you think you might want to adopt this sweet little guy, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
I swear when I went to sleep last night I had legs that were 16″ long. I am 1/4 lab and 1/4 boxer and I swear that I was born with longer legs. I seemed to have misplaced them because when I got up this morning, now I look like I might be half basset. My legs are stumpy and I have fat, hobbit feet too. I am looking for a home (along with my missing legs) and I want a place with short sofas that I can crawl onto to nap. I love everything and everyone (except the people that stole my legs because now I look silly). If you have any idea where my legs went or if you think you might want me to grace your sofa, please email email@example.com for more details. I am a very good boy and will make some lucky New England family a great dog, even if I am stubby.
Someone brought us four boxer mix puppies even though we are a giant breed rescue. One puppy hug later, all is forgiven. This little girl will be ready to go in a few weeks. In the meantime, she’s going to take a nap on a shoulder. Happy Tuesday!
Yesterday, we finished the first of four planned fenced areas for the dogs (note to fencing folks – it follows the land to keep dogs in and we could care less about how even it is at the top.). As we were working on the fence, someone drove up and dumped off 27 puppies. Yes, you read that correctly – 27 puppies. It was take them or know that they will end up on the side of the road on some back country area. We couldn’t turn them away. We have Anatolian mixes, Great Pyrenees mixes, boxer/labs, a shepherd mix or two, some black lab/Anatolians and my favorite, blue tick Great Pyrenees.
We scrambled to put up some temporary fencing:
As you can see, this is not exactly secure and two of our newest additions quickly figured how to go over the fence.
We need help. We do not have a secure area for this many puppies and puppies need room to romp. We are still working on the building which is evident from the first picture and we had budgeted to finish the roof and siding and the fence, but not a puppy place. We also do not have nearly enough crates to handle this many puppies.
We also need help with food. We are currently spending about $800 a week on food for all of our dogs and this latest hit will not help. If you would like to sponsor a puppy, a crate or a bag of food, you can donate here: http://www.bigfluffydogs.com/pay-online.php. Thanks as always. And also, in about five weeks, if you know anyone who wants to adopt a puppy, we think we might have some available.
Alleged to be a Great Pyrenees, Carlton arrived with pointy ears (my, what big ears you have!) and a sweet disposition. 10 weeks old now and a suspected White German Shepherd, he’s ready for a home. This is a very nice puppy. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for adoption info. He could go from Georgia to Maine.
This is pretty ridiculously cute. Jameson is one of 6 Australian cattle dog/Great Pyrenees puppies and they are amazingly sweet puppies. We don’t think they’ll be massive as cattle dogs are not large, but we think 70 pounds would probably be a good guess as adults. These are up for adoption now! Email email@example.com for more information.
This little guy is the namesake of one of our long time Robin, this one’s for you and thanks for all you do. Everyone else, he’s available in 3 weeks.
Meet the trio of the terribly cute puppies known collectively as the “E Puppies” . They will wag their tails, beg for petting, lick your face, nibble on your toes and fall over asleep mid-stride. These are puppies of unknown ancestry (lab border collies would be a good guess) and they are unbelievably adorable. They’ll be looking to go home in a few weeks.
UPDATE: Fiona has found her forever home!
We can’t believe that Fiona has not yet found her home. Fiona is a 16 week old aussie puppy who is sweet, friendly and adores children. She is great with other animals and is an outstanding pet. She is in New England.
Meet Lily, who is a lab mix puppy about 10 weeks old now. She has the faintest brown spot over her left eye which looks like dirt, but which is actually her fur. We suspect she has some basset in her ancestry as her legs are just on the short side of stumpy. Lily is friendly, sweet, active and will not be large. I would be surprised if she weighs much over 35 pounds as as an adult as she weighs 6 pounds right now. She is heading to New England so email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in her.
Meet Floyd and Zoe. These adorable little border collie/Great Pyrenees puppies are just shy of 13 weeks old now and weigh in at an impressive 35 pounds. These will be big dogs as adults and they are smart, lazy and friendly dogs. They are now up for adoption in New England. If you’re interested, email email@example.com.
Meet Crosby who was adopted from us as an honorary big fluffy dog. This video is the heart of why we do rescue.
For an unwanted boy from rural Tennessee, you did well for yourself Crosby. This makes us smile.
Meet Selena. She was purported to be a Great Pyrenees mix puppy by the shelter she came from. At 25 pounds and nine months of age, we don’t think so. Best guess: American Eskimo/blue heeler. Selena is a very wonderful dog. She loves other dogs, kids and cats and she is well-mannered in the house. She does love a tasty shoe, but with some maturity, she’ll put her shoe-killing ways behind her. This is a small dog, nearly hamster-sized by our standards, and she is active, friendly and outgoing. Joggers and hikers: this is an excellent choice. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or post a comment if you are interested. They broke the mold after they made her.
