Welcome to Giant Paw Prints, Inc.  We are glad you have taken the time to look at our rescue. Giant Paw Prints, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non profit organization based in Valparaiso, IN. We are a foster based rescue group with a primary focus on the larger GIANT breeds.  We love our furry friends that are often times over looked because of their size, but more times than not they are the most gentle natured pets you will ever have.


We encourage you to look around our site and if you have questions or would like to join our cause, please fill out the forms. 


Thank you again for your interest.

Our Dog of the Week

Meet Thor!!!  Thor (or Sir) was returned to us due to no fault of his own.  His parents got a divorce and neither could take him with.  Thor is a very smart boy, loves people but needs to be tested with other dogs.  Thor knows many basic commands, sit, down, stay, come and shake.  He walks great on his harness.  Thor will need an experienced GSD family that will continue to work with him.
