A Glowing Report On Newly Adopted Eva

A Glowing Report On Newly Adopted Eva

Many thanks to Bill Palajac for being so smart as to adopt a senior Great Dane! We know everyone wants to adopt a puppy, but we wanted to share with you Bill’s email to show the wisdom of considering a senior Great Dane.

“Thank you, thank you, thank you for Eva.

Going into this adoption you knew I was a little tentative with Eva being 6 years old; i was worried she would just sleep through the day. Oh my, this is not the case. Eva is very active, full of life and has a wonderful loving personality. I think of her as a 30 year old person who is more strategic about their energy use rather than a young kid who is always on the go. She is always ready for a walk and so we’re taking her out a few times a day; she’s loving it!

The family who raised her did a great job training and socializing her. Eva is responsive to sit, stay, come, no, all the basics. We have a little work to do with heeling properly but she is so smart and attentive this will take no time to correct. She is not food, animal or people aggressive. She’s just all around awesome, although, i’ve learned to keep a small hand towel in my pocket for when she gives me kisses. She is a sloppy kisser.

Did i mention how smart she is? She taught us her signal for bathroom time AND she has one specific spot in the backyard where she likes to take care of her business.

She is incredible. We’re so happy and thankful we connected with you.”

Take care,
Bill

Karen Garner sent this note to let us know her boy Moose is doing well.

“Just wanted to thank you again for calling us to adopt Moose. We just love him. He is 10 months old now and about 135. He has made my transition to retirement much easier. We play all day and my husband comes wondering what in the heck I do all day. Lol”

Thanks again Karen

Kaba’s new owner, Marissa, sent us this note about her new girl:

“A quick Pupdate for you!
Sophia now goes by the name Kaba!
Her and Nagi are besties although they don’t get to play right now since she just got spayed. She sleeps in bed with me and my other girl I’m really glad I got a bigger bed so they both fit lol. She goes with me everywhere everyday and sure does enjoy a pupappuccino from Starbucks with mom after her walkies. She’s taking all the other animals in stride doesn’t seem to phase her at all. She’s a real trooper I have to say and my parents say she’s clicked with me almost Instantly, she is never far from my side that’s for sure. I will continue to let you guys know how she develops, and evolves with me ❤️ thank you for finding me my best friend couldn’t have picked or found a greater Dane than her.”

Dog Wheelchair Needed

We got this request from Cherie, who adopted Luna from our organization:

“Do you know anyone who has a front support wheel chair for a great dane that we can rent for a few months? Or would you be able to recommend a reputable place that other Dane owners have used?

Luna’s been diagnosed with Angular Limb Disorder in both her front legs. Her legs started twisting at the start of June, our local vet told us that it was just a wonky growing stage. We decided to get a second opinion and it’s a good thing that we did.

We are scheduled for surgery this Saturday morning as the situation will escalate quickly if we don’t have a double ulnar osteotomy. Her elbows are currently in great shape, but the second they are compromised she’s no longer a surgical candidate. So we are forced to move quickly.

She will be able to bare weight on her legs after surgery however a wheelchair apparently will help with the recovery time. We won’t require the wheelchair for 3-4 weeks post surgery, but I thought I’d reach out before purchasing/renting any units just in the off chance you might have a connection that we can reach out to.

Help or advise on this one is appreciated. ”

Happy Birthday Stevie!

Happy Birthday Stevie!

Stevie just turned six years old on June 29th. Her doting Mom and Dad, Glen and Gayle Cook,of course threw her a party, complete with hat. Stevie came into rescue in bad shape, a sweet stray whom no one claimed. After spaying her, docking her tail, and trying to put some weight on her, Glen and Gayle came and adopted her into their family. Later, adding brother Bodie to the mix.

Happy Birthday Stevie! You deserve the wonderful life you now enjoy.

It took a while to coax Bodie into the pool but once in he seemed to enjoy getting his feet wet. Glen and Gayle are hoping for full on swimming soon! View the cute video of his slide into the pool!

Skinny Clifford

Skinny Clifford

He got that name because he was one of the skinniest, most long legged young Danes we ever had in.

Sherri saw past that and adopted him anyway!
