Another highly popular choice for people looking to rescue a dog is the size of the dog. And, when it comes to dogs, bigger, often amounts to better in the eyes of potential owners.
Big dogs often end up in rescue centres when they get too big to handle or take care of. Some examples of big dogs ending up in rescue centres are: St. Bernards, Great Danes and Alaskan malamutes. These are huge dogs that do need a lot of maintenance to take care of.
But the love that they can give back is just as huge as their bodies. If you get one, you’ll never part with him even if he tends to forget his size and thinks he’s a lapdog!
