Big Dawg was a Ford Superduty monster truck driven by Dale Gerding out of Missouri. The truck debuted in 2000 as the first truck for Doug Noelke, and Noelke ran the truck until 2006 when he built Tailgator, and Gerding took over the driving duties. Since 2013 Big Dawg and Smashosaurus have swapped on the same chassis. An interesting fact is that the 2003 Hot Wheels release of Big Dawg featured two designs for the dog on the side. In 2017, the truck was sold and it became Against the Grain.
