Thor Joined Jack in the Benson Home!

Nice photo and message from Gene Benson who recently adopted Thor who was on our site as a Private Adoption. Here is what Gene wrote to us:

“After several delays we picked up Thor on Friday. We’ve had him now long enough to be forming some impressions. Mie told us that he would not be good in a crate and that he has a history of self-feeding. Well, both of those behaviors are outside our normal experience with previous Danes. Turns out that she is completely correct about his behavior around a crate. He has near panic attacks that I believe are very serious separation anxiety. This will be a subject for our future training.

Jack in the red coat meeting Thor for the very first time. Thor’s behavior towards other dogs so far seems as advertised, he is not showing any aggression.

Thanks very much to you and Great Dane Rescue of NorCal for helping us to have another interesting animal in our pack. Y’all were where we obtained Jack, almost 9 years ago now.” We thank Gene and his family for adopting these two nice Danes and giving them a wonderful home.

SKYLAR Christmas update!

Skylar’s new family sent us this great update and photo!

“Skylar is doing wonderfully and has been the most amazing addition to our family. Friends and family, alike, have mentioned many times how much they enjoy spending time around her.

I hope you have a wonderful New Year filled with joy and happiness.”

…and Skylar, too!

Ranger and Lacey

We received this email from Stacey who adopted Ranger er from us years ago and when we had a puppy come in who was too young to be spayed we called Stacey as she is local and we knew she would not breed her and she came and adopted Lacey. Here is what Stacey wrote:

“My baby girl is so happy and loved. She has blended right into our family. We took her to the vet a couple of weeks ago for her boosters. She was 80 pounds at 6 months. She has put on a couple more pounds since that visit😉. I am grateful and thankful you all thought of our family again ❤ She is so soft and beautiful. She looks so much like Rae it’s crazy. I can certainly see the difference between males and females. Males are so needy – lol… just like husbands.

Ranger is the best dog ever! He has the best temperament and attitude. So playful and loving. Can’t imagine not having him. He is adjusting to Lacey. She is a pup full of energy and he gets a little annoyed, but he tolerates her well. “

Marbles and Lacey rest after escorting the kids trick or treating.

Thor – Private Adoption

Here is what Thor’s owner wrote about him.

” My boy’s name is Thor and he did turn 6 this year. He is so loving and grew up with my daughters who
Are 10, 9, and 8 but he has been around kids his whole life. He is great with all ages and even strangers. He loves anyone who is willing to give him love. He is not aggressive at all but we don’t socialize him often because of his size. Everything others dogs are around he gets excited and his size makes them attack him which gets him worked up but he’s never bitten or gotten into any altercations with any other dogs. Just lots of sniffing and barking. He is very spoiled so not very good on the leash so we have always just used soft choke leashes on him. We do have another dog that also grew up with him but it still does not help with the separation anxiety. It’s getting really bad and very hard to watch him suffer. The other dog we have does nothing for him. He is a full time inside dog except for when we leave the house because he is so smart he always opens our freezers and tries to eat people food. He’s too smart for his own good. He is AKC . He’s got the biggest paws and is just majestic in person. He’s is a mostly white with blue eyes. No vision or hearing loss. He’s amazing. He truly is the sweetest thing.”

Thor would benefit from a home with people who do no wok out of the home. With his separation anxiety he wants people around him as often as he can. If interested in this sweet boy, please contact us at [email protected] if you have completed an Aoption Application.
