He's one half of the Dynamic Duo.  He's known as the Boy Wonder.  In addition, he's also the Canine Crusader.  Burt Ward joins John and Dan Greenfield of 13th Dimension in the Batcave to discuss his time as Robin, his love for dogs and the steps he's gone to rescue as many canines as possible, and the upcoming The Return of the Caped Crusaders direct to DVD animated feature.  

Gentle Giants Rescue and Adoptions is the largest giant breed dog rescue in the world.  Located on a sprawling estate just one hour east of Los Angeles in Riverside County, California, Gentle Giants Rescue and Adoptions, Inc. is a California non-profit 501(c)(3) public benefit corporation, and is the charity of Burt and Tracy Ward.  

Burt, who gained fame as the Batman’s sidekick “Robin, the Boy Wonder” in the 1960’s television series and in subsequent film and television roles, has built a luxurious home for the more than 14,600 Gentle Giants and Little Giants that he and Tracy have rescued and adopted during the last 19 years.

There is always a wide selection of Gentle Giants, including Great Danes, Borzoi, English Mastiffs, Greyhounds,Irish Wolfhound combinations, Neopolitan Mastiffs, Fila Brasileiro, Bullmastiffs, Spanish Mastiffs, American Mastiffs, Adronicus Mastiffs, South African Boerboel Mastiffs, Dogue de Bordeaux French Mastiffs, Saint Bernards, Great Pyrenees, Newfoundlands, Sasquatch, Leonbergers and other Large Lap Dogs as well as many Little Giant breeds, including Whippets, Silken Windhounds, Italian Greyhounds, Peruvian Inca Orchid, Xoloitzcuintle, Shelties, and Chinese Crested available for adoption at Gentle Giants Rescue and Adoptions.  

The population of these Gentle Giants and Little Giants constantly changes each day as more are adopted and more are rescued from shelters and arrive from homes where their owners can no longer keep them, usually because of hardship or drastic changes in their lives due to divorce, illness, bankruptcy, job moves, military duty, etc.  

These dogs are incredibly beautiful and perfect family members who have been dearly loved, but now are in need of qualified new homes where they will again be loved, cherished and safe.  Burt and Tracy always have a large number of Gentle Giants and Little Giants of every size, age, color, and personality available for adoption.

There are too many Gentle Giant and Little Giant breeds at Gentle Giants Rescue and Adoptions to be listed individually.  At any given time, there may be puppies available, but there is always a variety of youthful and mature Gentle Giants and Little Giants, male and female, in every official and unofficial color.
