“To All Who Only Want To Adopt A Great Dane Under Two Years Old”

August 6, 2017

Be care what you ask for! Everyone wants a less than two year old Great Dane. Remember they are still pretty much a puppy up to two years and some can be destructive (see photos above). Crates are used as a training tool, not to contain your Dane for long periods to protect your home. Cages are for gerbils and hamsters! If you are not home enough to train a puppy, please don’t pass on a Dane older than two.

(Thanks to Karen for posting this with the accompanying photos of Michael and Ellie….and Karen was only gone for 30 minutes!)

Clifford’s Mom Sherri sent this short movie and note from her boy Clifford:

“I’m SO tired from our walk that the beach on the way back isn’t doing it for me. I just want to go to the car!”

(I begin to feel that some Rescue Danes get to do more fun things than some people do!)

Received this cute photo from Laura and Dan, new parents to Logan.

“We have a new thing now, he won’t get in my car at 5 pm when we are ready to leave work. He can be the most stubborn thing when he wants. I had three people try to get in the car. Come to find out, if I move my car to the shade, turn the a/c on and let the vehicle cool down, he will jump right in. If too hot, no way! When I bring Logan to work and I want to keep the front door open for cool air, I just put that broom in the photo across the doorway and Logan will not cross it! I think he knows he could if he wanted to, but he is a good boy.”

Thanks to Laura and Dan for this update.

Ellie (blue girl) now races with Michael and Stella to see who can get into the car faster. She is still looking for a wonderful home. To find more photos and information on this lovely blue girl, go to her bio on the Adoptable page.

Some great photos and a quick line or two to give us an update on Beau:

“Sorry we haven’t checked in for a while, but just wanted you to know that we just adore Beau. He is such a perfect fit for us. He and Maggie have made peace and are two peas in a pod.”

Thanks to Jennifer for making this adoption work.

Just received this nice note from the Halladay family who adopted Millie from us (with some great photos):

“In June we celebrated the fourth anniversary of Millie joining our family and wanted to share a quick update with you. Millie is doing great. She did give us a big scare last month when she bloated. Fortunately I was home and with the help of neighbors was able to get her in the car and to the emergency vet quickly. She has recovered well from the surgery and they did do the gastropexy when they went in to correct the GDV. She is now back to her usual antics and regular level of being spoiled. She is back to leaping through the sand dunes of Fort Funston and enjoying play dates with friends. We are so blessed to have Millie (aka Miller) as part of our family. We are so grateful to you for bringing us together. We hope all is well with you and the Danes at Rescue.”

Signed, Sinee, Eric, Austin, Amara and Millie

Cleo just recently turned one year old and how she has grown! She and her brother Jake are enjoying each other and the good life in Nevada. Thanks to Lori and Cliff for their perseverance in finding the food that works for Cleo (Lori is actually mixing two types). Congratulations! Only a dog person knows how rewarding that is…when things are running well!

Caius has been going through a lot lately. Recently diagnosed with a bulging disc, his wonderful owner Dora McCleeary is doing all she can to keep him pain free and walking as well as he can. She is doing herbs, acupuncture and traditional western medicine to help her boy Caius. He is very lucky to have a Mom like Dora.

Happy Fifth Birthday Stevie (formerly Sabrina)!

Happy Fifth Birthday Stevie (formerly Sabrina)!

June 24, 2017

I am seeing that when people adopt Danes from us, they tend to spend lots of time on people’s laps! Here is some very cute photos of Stevie and her Dad doing what they seem to do best. Stevie is resting after her big celebration, which entailed several rounds of Happy Birthday. Thanks to Glenn and Gayle for adopting Stevie, a Dane that came in as a stray, filthy dirty, with a bad tail that had to be amputated, and then post-adoption was diagnosed with heartworm. Glenn and Gayle took this in stride, completed the heartworm treatment Stevie needed and continue to shower her with love. She is their little princess!
