Searching High and Low!

Searching High and Low!

 Daisy is still looking for a forever home. We’re dumbfounded that this sweet girl is still with us. They say good things happen for those who wait but seriously?!?She was recently introduced with a cat and was curious. Once the cat arched it’s back, Daisy being a smart girl, kept her distance. Please got to website to our adoptable page and read about Daisy. She’s an easy breezy covergirl.



Charlie is shown riding home after her spay. She told me her mouth felt very empty, and she was not sure why. (After ten minutes of her tongue hanging out, I had to gently put it back in her mouth. Anesthesia still lingering!)

Doug and Peggy Will Be Home Soon!

Happy Birthday Stevie!!

WONDERFUL photo of Stevie Cook celebrating her seventh birthday. Her parents, Glen and Gayle, always send us wonderful photos, but this takes the cake! (couldn’t resist) Here is what Gayle wrote to us on Stevie’s big day: “Our Stevie is seven years old today and she is in great shape. She loves running the trails (along with her Dane brother Bodie, of course) on our daily hikes and has perfected the skill of being a Gold Medal Couch Potato. Additionally, we think the grey hair around her eyes is quite stylish. She does too. She also loves sun bathing which is what she was up to when I took this photo. We are truly grateful to have these two Danes. Stevie has been a part of our family for over two years now. She and Bodie are such a joy to us. We are filled with gratitude to have them in our lives. Thank you GDRNC!!”

Again, we say WE are so lucky that Stevie and Bodie are in such a fantastic home. Thank you Glen and Gayle.

Donated Cancer Medications

>Katie Knight wrote to us letting us know she has medications to donate to a Great Dane who could use them. Here is what she wrote:

(Contact her at this email address if interested. >

>” I wanted to reach out on the off-chance that you knew anyone whose Danes may be suffering from TCC or other carcinomas.
> We have two bottles (probably 200 tablets) of Piroxicam, a pretty common (and unfortunately, SPENDY treatment). This is enough to treat a Dane for close to two months. Anyway, thought we could send them to someone in need if you knew of anyone treating their Danes with this prescription. We filled the prescription right before Norman’s passing in 2017. The pills are good through 12/19. “

Thank you Katie for your generous offer to help another Dane in need.


Winston is STILL looking for a wonderful new home. This is a very sweet dog who unfortunately isn’t the male supermodel of Great Danes. But he has a great personality! Take a second look!

Bodhi’s Trainer Information

After Gayle Cook wrote about her experience with her Great Dane Bodhi, and how a trainer really helped with his issues, many people asked for the name of the trainer. Here is the information Gayle provided us:

Rest in Peace sweet Brooklyn

Rest in Peace sweet Brooklyn
Brooklyn with her family

Alyssa and Ben adopted the sweetest Brooklyn from us several years ago. We received this note from them this week letting us know of Brooklyn’s passing. Our sincere condolences to Ben, Alyssa and Charlie on the loss of their wonderful family member, Brooklyn. She was one lucky girl to have such a loving family.

I was lucky enough to adopt Brooklyn from you about three years ago. Unfortunately, I’m e-mailing to let you know that she passed away last week. She was diagnosed with a heart condition about a month ago. She responded well to medication initially, but soon began to suffer. We were with her as she passed and it was very quiet and peaceful. Our hearts ache for her – she became a part of our family immediately, and it feels likes she was with us much longer than three years. Early last year, we welcomed a baby girl named Charlie and Brooklyn became a big sister. She was so loving and patient with Charlie. Always hanging out underneath her high chair, waiting to clean up any left over peas. 
She was such a sweet, goofy girl. So easy going and lovable. To say she will be missed is a huge understatement. We are so lucky to have the time with her that we did and we’ll always treasure our memories with her.   

Thank you and GDRNC so much for everything you do, and allowing sweet Brooklyn into our lives. 

Barr Estate Winery

Thanks to Tealy and Greg Barr, owner-operators of Barr Estate Winery in Paso Robles, for sending another nice donation to Rescue from the sales of their “Dane Head” wine. Tealy and Greg, adoptors themselves, always think of Rescue and give a portion of the sales of the Dane Head wine to Rescue.

If you are looking for a fun Father’s Day wine tasting trip, check out their winery in Paso Robles and enjoy a bottle of Dane Head!
