Say hello to Biggie, a 13-year-old “BHD" (big hairy dog). Biggie was rescued from a high-kill animal shelter as a puppy, and not knowing his true lineage is actually a bonus because so many people stop to ask about him — they like guessing his breed mix. He has perfected the lean-in, which most of the time leads to passersby petting him. Biggie lives in Bend and commutes to downtown every day with owner Deb Kraus. His favorite past-times are skiing at Wanoga’s dog-friendly trails or walking on the Deschutes River Trail.
