May update: Biggie was nervous again when we had him out this past volunteer day. Due to the number of dogs in the shelter, some dogs go months before they make it back into rotation for play dates. That is the case with Biggie. We hadn't seen him in nearly 2 months. Unfortunately large black male dogs are the least wanted dogs, so they get bumped for the more appealing dogs when we are only allowed to see so many dogs per weekend. Biggie needs an adopter or foster to take a chance on him so we can see that true personality shine through. We have seen glimpses so we know its there!March update: After several weeks in the shelter, Biggie is finally starting to show us his amazing personality. He stays close to his handler for assurance, but he is not nearly as scared as he once was. He is dog friendly but not interested in playing just yet. He greeted the other dog and then walked away.Biggie came to the shelter absolutely petrified with Pretty Girl. He is still very frightened, but we were able to coax him out of his kennel to walk to the play yard. He stayed close to his handler and did not seem interested in meeting other dogs. He was non-reactive around other dogs, but preferred being with his handler. Treats are his best friend, and if you give him treats, he will warm up to you. We’d love to see Biggie fostered or adopted so that we can learn more about his personality!Biggie is currently a resident at Vermilion Parish Animal Control. He will be vaccinated, neutered, and microchipped upon placement in an adoptive or foster home.  To adopt, complete the adoption application at
