Puppies are available through our Rescue when pregnant Gentle Giants are brought to us by people who love them but who can no longer keep them, or when people are not able to properly care for puppies that they have obtained from other sources.

Rescued Gentle Giants are never bred once they come to our Rescue, and are neutered or spayed prior to adoption.

Xolie's Christmas Story



Why We Now Rescue All Hairless Dogs In Need!

We were taking a Great Dane out of a local shelter and the pick up was scheduled for Dec. 23rd, two days before Christmas, when we received an urgent call from the animal shelter. There was one more very special dog there that they needed us to take. Everyone at the shelter was in love with her. Three or four other rescues had promised to take her for quite some time, but none ever showed up to save her. In fact, the rescues had stopped returning the shelter's calls.

The shelter sent us a photo that looked like a potbelly pig. They explained that it was a pregnant Mexican hairless dog who was supposed to have been picked up weeks ago and now was ready to deliver her puppies at any time - perhaps even on Christmas day - and that the mother and her puppies would be euthanized because her time was up. The shelter personnel were so touched that they pleaded with us to take her. How could anyone say no? We looked into her eyes in the photo and we were in love already, too! Our driver picked her up along with the Great Dane.

"Xolie" arrived here and strutted in like she owned the place. As sweet, loving and gracious as a 40 pound potbelly pig looking pregnant Xoloitzcuintle could look, she knew she was a princess even at that moment. All of our other dogs looked at her like the royalty she knows that she is . . . even to this day.

"Xolie" had her puppies the next morning - on Christmas Eve - and God's Christmas present to us of the preciousness of life made us realize from that moment on that we must rescue them as well. No longer will they have to die in shelters because there is no one to save them. Had we been on the hairless breed rescue list at the time "Xolie" first came into the shelter, we would have taken her out on the first day that she became available, just as we take every breed that we rescue.

We don't ever make the shelters wait or let our babies languish in there - we take them out immediately! Now, no hairless breed will ever again have to go through what poor "Xolie" did. Their big personalities allow them to fit in well with all of our Gentle Giants and Little Giants, and they are quite at home here as you can see throughout the pages of our website .

Xoloitzcuintle are very happy to live with their other Gentle Giant and Little Giant brothers and sisters, and we are thankful for the loving, big-hearted families who adopt them from us. Below you can see "Xolie" with her puppies warm and safe on Christmas Eve, looking comfortable, happy, and content as she will always be, the confident and outgoing princess that she knows that she is, and even then when she looked like a potbelly pig.

In her mind, and in our hearts, "Xolie" will always be royalty as are all of the breeds that we rescue and love! And, we take every chance we can to thank the many shelters throughout California and across the United States that work with us, and who always know to call us, so that so many precious lives can be saved. And we save EVERY ONE OF THEM - regardless of the distance, cost, or expense!

"Memphis" and his new Mom



Dear Burt and Tracy:

We made it home fine last night. "Memphis" played with "Darla" my year old Terrier, and slept until 7:00 a.m. this morning. 

He went outside, played for a couple hours waiting to go potty, and then got a warm bath that he was very displeased with. 

"Memphis" is now sleeping in the bathroom.
