Pawfessor Big Rig

Doggie Biography

When children meet Big Rig they instantly fall in love. He is the cutest little meatball ever! And he steals everyone’s heart. 


Big Rig teaches us that differences are beautiful, and that if you don’t have “conventional” looks – don’t hide, don’t be scared to shine! Big Rig was born with a cleft palate, but he doesn’t let that stop him from being an adorable and fun dog full of love and confidence. 


He loves to play with his doggy friends, eat vegetables and be in a classroom full of children. Big Rig is another one of our Road Dogs Rescue Pawfessors.
