Weekdays 10:30am - 2pm

Being a mom of a rescue pup, I’m so excited to be partnering with Big Hearts for Big Dogs to feature an adoptable dog each week, and our Big Heart of the Week is Gunther!

Gunther is a 5 year-old Rhodesian Ridgeback/Hound mix who I am absolutely in love with and he will definitely win over your heart with his funny, goofy personality and the sweetest eyes! He is looking for a quiet home, as an only dog, where he’ll get a daily walk and be allowed to live inside as a close member of his family. A perfect night for Gunther would be snuggled up, getting snacks and belly rubs! He truly is 100 pounds of pure love.


If you’re interested in adopting Gunther, click here to fill out the adoption form. You can also see what other dogs are available for adoption through Big Hearts for Big Dogs here.

Big Hearts for Big Dogs started by a small group of individuals who saw a desperate need for advocates of larger breed dogs. Smaller dogs are adopted faster and rescued more often. There is always a need for more fosters, and if you’re interested, you can reach out to

The rescue is also run solely on donations. If you’d like to make a cash donation, click here. Or you can view their Amazon wishlist here.
