Moose (formerly Deuce)

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

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!

Luna was just trying to find a comfortable position to sleep in, then finally just wore herself out and settled on the standard “head on my front leg” position.

Vote For Mike!

Mike Stone, a professional dog handler and co-owner of the kennel where we board our rescue Great Danes(and gives us a HUGE discount on boarding), has been nominated for “Professional Handler Of The Year” by Purina and Dog Show magazine. If you by chance feel the need to cast a vote, you can go to the website showdogsawards.com, click on VOTE in the upper right hand corner. You will be directed to a page where you will scroll down until you see the banner PROFESSIONAL HANDLER, and you will see Mike Stone’s name.

Mike is a wonderful handler. He is very kind to the dogs he handles, has a “soft” hand when taking them in the ring and is deserving of this honor.

Thank you!

We Are Compiling a List of Drivers

Occasionally, Great Dane Rescue will ask for help in transporting a Great Dane in need of rescuing from a location in Northern California. We were thinking to start the new year off right, we would be proactive and compile a list of volunteers who have expressed an interest in helping with transportation. If you would like to be added to our list, please email Colleen at cleahy1955@yahoo.com with the time/days that you might be able to help transport. For example: ;”I am free weekends only” or “I can transport during the week, but only in the afternoons”, etc. The second part of this query is; what is your territory? We have dogs that need to go from Granite Bay to Reno on occasion. Is this a route you could drive? We also have dogs that need to be transported from the Central CA area or from somewhere in the Bay Area. Is this a route you could drive? Be specific on where you could pick up a dog and how far you could transport that dog. The ultimate destination is Granite Bay. If you are added to our list you might be contacted to help with transport, which you could either accept or decline. Any and all help is greatly appreciated!
