I adopted Olivia from BFDR last October. We had to wait several months before she could travel because she was being treated for heartworm. This organization is amazing and has done so much for dogs in need. I can't thank them enough for what they do for homeless dogs in need whether they are big and fluffy or not.

I have adopted all three of my dogs from this organization! They made sure to check my references in advance, they are clear in the rules for their dogs in order to keep them safe after adoption, and are happy to take back any dog from a home that doesn't work out so they can rehome them and the cycle of abandonment doesn't continue. The director and volunteers clearly put their heart and soul into the work and save so many beautiful souls. Even though they are called "big fluffy dog rescue" they don't leave a dog behind just because she isn't big or fluffy - they take our tired, poor, and huddled doggies no matter their needs or appearance. They are a godsend to rescue!

I was looking for a dog for my two boys of course looking online and was set to go visit another dog about 45 min from us , when i ended up seeing this goofy dog on the big fluffy dog site so i contacted them and come to find out he was 10 min away! So we went to visit and he came out from under his bush and proceded to play with and herd my boys. They loved each other! The foster said he didnt do that with the other families he saw . So i suppose he chose us ! We ended up taking him home a week later he has been a wonderful fit! The people who work with bfdr are wonderful and he was very loved at his foster there were lots of tears when he left. The dogs are fixed ,vetted and chipped also driven from down south. Working with animals my self i can say they go out of their way for these animals they are wonderful!

We adopted our current fuzzy family member from BFDR, and we could not be happier. BFDR does amazing things, taking on cases that no other rescue (or major organization--yes, I'm looking at you Humane Society) will touch, regardless of how much deeper some of those pockets are. They step in with grace and energy, and they make things happen. I love the honesty and sincerity demonstrated by these dedicated folks. Our fuzzy might just be the most perfect pet ever.

I LOVE BFDR!!!! I got an adorable golden ret / pyr mix about a year and a half from them. They were very accommodating and waited a week until I could come and pick her up. I will definitely get another dog from them.

I recently started fostering for BFDR. They are a wonderful organization that truly goes above and beyond for their dogs. You will not find a more hardworking and compassionate group of volunteers anywhere. While communication may not always be as quick as some would like, you have to realize that these are volunteers with full-time jobs, children, family obligations, and lives. The foster and adoption coordinators are essentially working a second job, 24/7, since dogs don't only need rescue and fosters and adopters don't only need questions answered during weekday business hours. They work tirelessly to find the best fit for each dog. They do not rush dogs through, mislead you, and hide any "bad" qualities about any dog just for the sake of placing it in an adoptive home. This organization cares for and loves each dog. Thanks BFDR for all you do, and I recommend this rescue to everyone I know!

I adopted a dog from Big Fluffy and I foster for them as well. The people that work at BFDR are dedicated, caring, and tireless in their efforts to see every dog in a happy, safe place. They are responsive to questions and work hard to make sure that they are matching dogs with the correct families. I am impressed every time I have an interaction with anyone that works at BFDR - from the drivers, to the the vets, to the adoption and foster coordinators, and everyone else. I can't say enough great things about BFDR and the work that they do.

I adopted from Big Fluffy Dog Rescue about 6 months ago they are fantastic to work with. They do their best to make sure you are a good fit for the dog and the dog is a good fit for you. They have been more than willing to answer all my questions, before and after the adoption, they didn't just disappear after we brought him home. We really loved our dogs foster family, they were great at honestly answering all of our questions and letting us spend as much time as needed to be sure we were compatible with our dog. We are still Facebook friends, so they can see our dog grow up. They all care so much for all these dogs and help however they can. We love our Big Fluffy Rescue Dog and Big Fluffy Dog Rescue. I recommend them to everyone I can.

We are proud "Foster Failures" and that is because of how amazing BFDR made our experience being first time fosters which lead to us adopting. The care and attention to the animals they rescue are unbelievable, I am in ah of the dedicated fosters and volunteers with BFDR. BFDR is there anytime I have questions or need advice as our dog reaches new stages of cuteness!!! BFDR should be your choice if you are considering fostering or adoption!!!
