Our Featured Pet...

The litter of 6 - 5 month old beagle/shephard pups arrived with very little socialization. My biggest problem with them 3 weeks ago was that they were afraid to come near me. My biggest problem now is that they all want to be in my lap. They have discovered they love attention and that giving kisses is great fun. They race up to me begging to be picked up and cuddled. And they are progressing with house training. They vary in color from an almost solid black with short hair to a lighter tan with longer hair. These very sweet pups are looking for forever homes.

Where We Will Be


Ever thought of fostering. JBBD would love to have a couple of fosters in the Highland Park area, either short term or for long term with dogs being treated for heartworm. All vet costs will be covered by JBBD. This is a great way to help a dog. If you are interested email or call us.

Who We Are

Did you know that large black dogs are the least likely to find a home. Many of them are Labs and Lab Xís, the most popular breed in the country. But popularity comes at a cost. People choose these dogs, often with little knowledge of the breed. They donít understand that these dogs are slow to mature and require a lot of attention. And Labs will roam, especially if not neutered. In the end, many end up in the shelter. Just Big Black Dogs is a recently incorporated rescue whose goal is to help decrease the number of unwanted black dogs. Some are heartworm positive when we get them. Many have been ignored. They primarily come from shelters in SC, shelters that are the last home for many. Our dogs may stay with us for months, learning to trust or recovering from the HW treatment. We know these dogs, and are dedicated to finding them the best forever home.
