Due to Covid-19, we currently are not holding any adoptions. We ARE accepting applications and will set up a meet and greet at a later date for all potential adopters to meet our furry friends. 

Thank you to everyone that has reached out during this time with wanting to lend a helping hand. We appreciate the love. If you are interested in becoming a foster parent, please only apply if you are able to make a serious long-term commitment- able to continue past Covid-19. We hate to turn anyone away that could potentially help a Little Giant but we need to also ensure the safety of our dogs. We thank you for understanding.

Hi, I'm Romeo. I came to Little Giants as an owner surrender. I lived with my previous family for my entire life so this is all a little new to me. I am adapting really well though. I was nervous in the beginning but I'm a tough cookie! Don't let my age fool you. I have more pep than some of the younger dogs I'm currently living with.  I wasn't in the best condition when I was brought in but Little Giants is nursing me back to health. I can't hear so I rely on my sight and you for help and guidance. I love going for walks, I love my toys- a little too much, I enjoy car rides and I love to spend time with you. I would love to meet you and for you to be my new forever ears!  



Breed: Mix Age: 9 months Gender: Female Spayed/Neutered: No-will be scheduled Color: Tan
Good w/ Dogs: Yes Good w/ Cats: n/a Good w/ Kids: yes House-trained: yes Crate-trained: yes 
Special Needs: yes- neuro

Hey, it's me Brylee! I am a super, happy, loving girl who just needs some help. I am from TN where my time was almost up. They tell me that I have neurological problems but if you ask me I say "Hosh Posh" and shake my paw at them. I can do anything any other pup can do! I LOVE to be cuddled, love to play with toys and chew my bones. I get along great with my dog friends and they try to teach me the ropes. I enjoy car rides and do well in them. I am getting stronger every day and I don't let my "problem" stop me from achieving anything I want to achieve. I am a very good girl and don't go potty in the house. I just want someone who can love me and help me grow beautifully and strong like the pup I know I can be.

Notes from Rescue: 
 Brylee has no clue she is any different and does her best to keep up with the other dogs. She doesn't let her neuro problems deter her in any way and will try to achieve anything that any other dog can do. She does not go to the bathroom in the house however she has had a couple accidents in the middle of night. She suffers from broad base stance, intention tremors and slight ataxia. When she walks it is almost as if she is wearing dog boots for the first time while drunk (best way to describe it). She walks very well though, under the circumstances. She has conquered stairs going up and attempts going down- still a bit nervous, but she is working on it. When she gets overly excited she can't control herself and will fall to the ground due to not being able to get a sturdy stance. She is unable to keep her attention on one thing for a long period of time. She LOVES food and is a great eater-eats using a slow eater bowl. No aggression with other dogs, no toy/bone aggression, no food aggression.

-Romy & Michele-
*Bonded Pair*

Breed: Shitzu  Age: 1 yr Gender: Female Spayed/Neutered: No-will be scheduled Color: white Good w/ Dogs: Yes
Good w/ Cats: n/a Good w/ Kids: n/a House-trained: yes Crate-trained: yes Special Needs: yes: Michele has 3 legs

We are Romy & Michele- just like the movie! We came from TN where we were left in a very bad condition and never knew anything but pain and neglect. We were left in a box behind a store extremely matted. The damage was so severe that my (Michele) left leg lost circulation and had to be amputated. My sister, Romy, was much luckier and was able to keep all her paws. We are very sweet, loving gals. We love to be with each other. We are very good in the car and love to sit in your lap and give you all the love we can give. We are still a bit nervous and working on coming out of our shells, but give us time and we will be crazy little pups that we know we can be.

Oh Hey, it's me Bjorn (pronounced: B-orne)! I was found as a stray roaming the streets doing my own thing until LGDR took me in. I am 9 years young. I am a fun, loving energetic guy. I love to meet new dogs and go outside. I will cuddle and lay with you but also like to do my own thing. I feel safe in my crate but only if my door is open, I still need to be me and be free. I do go potty in the house occasionally but I am working on that. I will bark and tell you what I need but it's your job to guess and figure it out! I am not a big fan of treats really but I do love my breakfast and dinner. I enjoy walks and car rides and the simple things in life😊 Will you be my new best friend and enjoy them with me

Hey there, my name is Genki. It means "high energy" in Japanese but don't let my name fool you as I am as peaceful as a lamb. I came from Jacksonville, IL where my owner sadly couldn't care for me anymore. I get along great with other dogs and kids. I am very well mannered and learn new things quickly. I know how to sit, give paw and fetch! Not to brag or anything but that's pretty awesome. One of my favorite things is cuddle time- boy it's the best! I am a good boy when it comes to car rides- I do get a little nervous but I am working on it. I love walks, playing with toys, getting treats and spending time with you. Will you be my new cuddlier?
