Group Info

***Big dogs, no bullshit.***

PLEASE READ THE RULES BELOW!

Our mission in BBD is to collect and share drawings, photography, sculptures et cetera of the most badass dog breeds out there. This includes the German Shepherd, Husky, Rottweiler, Kangal and many, many more. Only large working dogs all the way. This does not mean this group looks down at small lapdogs, we just dont want to feature them as we celebrate the strength and intelligence of the true working dog.
Our group name does not want to make worse the already bad reputation some breeds have, the "Big Bad" part is a comical reference to the Big Bad Wolf from fairytales and makes the group name sound catchy.
I live in Finland where's yet not much bad breed profiling or restrictions, if something is "badass" here then it is only a good thing.
This group is also not a political group, while I am against BSL I'm not going to preach about it here. There are other better medias out there to educate people rather than DeviantArt.

**RULES**
-We accept all kinds of art as long as it is of good quality, no blurry photos or badly scanned art is allowed, nor drawings on lined paper.
-Gore and erotica is allowed if it doesnt violate the rules of DA.
-Anthro art is allowed, even sexual art.
-Wolfdogs are allowed, plain wolves are not. Same rule on coydogs.
-Made-up breeds are not allowed, the breed in your submission must exist in real life. Some fantasy elements in the dog are allowed, as an example a winged Rottweiler or a horned Doberman would be okay. Dog + other animal hybrids are okay as long as the dog part is more dominant and the breed is easily recognisable.
-We accept mutts too if they have blood of a "Big Bad Breed" in them, but be sure to post them to the crossbreed folder.
-Just because our group's name is Big Bad Dogs doesnt mean we only collect art of pissed dogs! Cute art is fine as well.
-Submit to the right folder!!!!
-Fan art and original characters are fine as long as their breed is still recognisable. Unnatural markings are allowed as well on the same principle.

I'm sorry I haven't been able to let in your submissions lately! My laptop died on me so I haven't been able to log in that much these days and when I do I only have the time to do things that are really important, like job related stuff and so on. I'm so sorry! Do keep submitting your wonderful pictures, just prepare that it will take a while for them to get accepted.

Great group!

The front page has only a short summary to give people brief examples of the breeds we allow, a longer (but not complete) list is in each folder. Good thing you noticed it yourself! And nice to know you like the group.

Belgian malinois is listed in there, but not the other belgian shepherds, why? Basically they are all the same, only the lenght and color of the fur that differs them, a tervueren can be born in a malinois litter, for an example :)

Just wondering. If all the 4 variants of the breed are accepted in the group, maybe it would be better if it stood belgian shepherd there, instead for just malinois, would be easier to know. And if only malinois is accepted, I wonder why is that.

Do you accept border collies?

I'm afraid not, the folder we have for shepherd and cattle dog breeds is reserved for dogs that either work for police/personal protection (as an example German Shepherds) or herd cattle which is a more dangerous job than herding sheep (as an example Australian Cattle Dog).
