Hagrid In His New Home

Hagrid In His New Home

January 8, 2021

Hagrid has found a wonderful home with Alysicia who has adopted two seniors thru us. She reached out earlier asking is she could be on a waitlist for a puppy (which we never get in).
She felt her girls now are older and were ready to help with a younger Dane. I don’t think Hagrid was the puppy she had in mind but I had to ask. She has experience, patience and a household of girls!, Just what this little guy needed, and she said YES! Here’s Hagrid’s update:

“The girls are in love because he Hagrid pays more attention to them than Tucker does. Tucker likes him but is still trying to figure him out because Hagrid is so exuberant when he plays and has been circling around inside the house checking everything out.
Tucker gets to walk the property off leash but I’m keeping Hagrid on leash for the longer walks at the moment so I can introduce him to all of the livestock and new sights/smells in a controlled way. He’s going to do great.”

Obi In His New Home

January 6, 2021

Ken and Connie adopted Obi in December and just sent us an update.
After losing their beloved Breck, they noticed Paisley (whom they adopted thru us) was depressed. Could we find another Dane for them? Along came Obi, a private adoption, and they went for it!

“One week in and so far NO issues. We have left the Danes alone twice. First time was 10 mins and last night about 20 mins. Baby steps. Obi is learning commands and how to walk on a leash without pulling. He still doesn’t understand he can go outside when he wants without asking. I have had him off leash in the front yard . He stays right next to me once he realizes we are not going for a ride.”

Stevie and Bodie

Stevie and Bodie

December 31, 2020

The Cook family sent us this cute photo of their rescue Danes Stevie and her younger “brother” Bodie. Here is what Gayle wrote to us:

“Butt to Butt. This rarely happens as Stevie doesnt like to cuddle with Bodie. He annoys her (other than in the car when they are always touching).
She craves human cuddling though!.”

These Great Danes are so lucky to be in the home they are!

Winchester Update

December 31, 2020

We received these great photos from Jeanette on her boy Winchester. Here is what she wrote to us:

“Sorry it’s been awhile! Just checking in to say Winchester is doing well!
He had many issues but we got with an excellent trainer and we have been diligent with daily training instilling rules, boundaries and lessons since August. He has gained so much confidence and his anxiety and reactivity is so much better.
He has been quite a handful but is blossoming daily. He is just now realizing that he is home and has a loving family. His discovery of human touch and affectionately is now expected and he loves cuddling. To watch his daily transformations have been rewarding. It has been a long and dedicated journey since August but he is so worth it. His entire demeanor and attitude has changed and he is such a loving goofball.
Here are some pictures of him!
Hope all is well with you! Happy Holidays!”

Tucker Update

Tucker Update

December 31, 2020

An update from Alysicia on her second adopted senior Dane. Unlike so many, it’s the quality of time, not the quantity of time you have with a Dane in need. Here’s what she wrote:

Hi,
I wanted to give you a quick update. Tucker is doing great and we adore him everyday. Thank you again.
Have a safe, happy holiday.
Alysicia and family

Moose at Christmas

Moose at Christmas

December 27, 2020

Maureen, a long time adopter of our rescued Danes (four times to be precise!) sent us this update on her boy Moose. Her family is never focused on age or color or size, but rather just wanting a Dane with a good temperament and to provide him/her a loving home. Thank you Maureen and the whole Mason family, we wish we could clone you and your family! Here is her update:

“Moose is doing great- he loves going for a ride. We started taking him once in a while so he’d be used to riding to the vet. Now he’s ready to go every day, anywhere. He a very good guy in the vehicle so now that it’s cooler he gets to go more. I’m sure we’ll be sorry come warm weather.
He’s in great health. We had a little scare in June- a mass started forming under his jaw. You can just guess what was going through my mind given our history but fortunately it was only a foxtail! Quick recovery.

All our best, Moose and the rest of the Masons”

Whiskey Blue Update

Whiskey Blue Update

December 27, 2020

Whisky Blue was adopted as a private adoption due to all the shut downs with covid. Maggie was patiently waiting on out adopter’s list and finally won the lotto on this boy. Here’s her update on Whiskey.

“Happy Holidays! Thought I’d update you on our beautiful boy He’s 150 lbs now Whisky had a session with a trainer and he is doing great with sit, down and stay. Still working on the growling but he’s doing better.
He’s having anal gland issues with one infection and is going through a second round of antibiotics. Hoping pumpkin will help add fiber and clear it up. If you have suggestions, let me know.
He loves going to school. Today was the second to last day before winter break. We were twins for the student materials pick up. He was such a good sport and the kids (and parents) loved seeing him! I have no doubt our twin wardrobe will expand! Thank you Karen for being a wonderful matchmaker!

Hope all is well with you. Have a great holiday.”

Update on Kevin

Update on Kevin

December 27, 2020

We got this nice update from Kika on her Dane boy Kevin:

“I just wanted to say hello and send some photos of our sweet Kevin. It’s been a year since we brought him home and I’m so happy we did. We love him very much and he has a very happy life.

Kevin actually has his own couch that he usually sleeps on until about 6 in the morning when he “sneaks” into our bed and cuddles up next to me. I had every intention of keeping him out of the bed and off the furniture, but he’s just too darling and loves being comfy…so it didn’t take long for me to give in. He still romps around the yard and loves his aussie sister, Koda. They play constantly and have even started cuddling together in the last few months. Thank you so much for the work you do, and for bringing us Kevin. I couldn’t love him more; I try not to let the other dogs know he’s my favorite 😊.”

Merry Christmas!
Kika, Kevin and Family

Kylo in his new home

Kylo in his new home

December 21, 2020

Sherri Myers and her family recently adopted Kylo as a Private Adoption and here is the nice update she sent:

“Kylo is doing great. He is a quick learner and such a handsome boy with his pearly white teeth, long legs, and shiny blue black coat. He is now adjusted to our home though it took him some time to accept our dog Cooper. Kylo and Cooper are now getting along but they had three pretty good rows. Each time, Kylo attacked Cooper and had him pinned by the throat but our Cooper is a fighter and was not going to take any crap from the Big Guy. Kylo quickly learned that Cooper may be smaller and half his weight but he can hold his own. I was so sad at one point that it may not work out but we kept working with both of them and now they are buddies.

Kylo is a typical Dane and doesn’t like to be alone so he is always by our side whether we are in our home or outside working. Cooper will take off exploring but Kylo stays close and constantly needs reassurance that we are still there. He has that wonderful deep Great Dane Bark and can appear intimidating but he is a big chicken when it comes to certain things. He is super curious and has to have his nose in everything. He loves to play ball and fetch and can destroy a soccer or basketball in one day. He is an amazing jumper and cleared a five foot fence like it was nothing. We’ve beefed up the fence lines along our six acres but he is not a runner since he wants to be where his pack is. He knows how to open our sliding glass door with his nose and can work our screen doors until they open. He is a rascal. He gets a lot of exercise every day so he sleeps very well at night.

My whole family loves Kylo and he is meeting neighbors who have also given him many scratches and compliments. Even my good friend and neighbor who is extremely intimidated by dogs is warming up and accepting him.

Thank you to Karen with the Great Dane Rescue in Reno for hooking us up in this private adoption. She has spent a lot of time with us and answering all my questions providing good advice on feeding and training.

Thank you to Colleen with the Great Dane Rescue for hooking me up with her vet to get Kylo neutered. The cost to neuter him at my vet was double so her help was invaluable. Plus she provided us with a beautiful big Great Dane bed.

Blake Celebrates Christmas In Style

Michael (father to Blake the Great Dane) sent us this note. Thank you Michael for the wonderful life you are giving Blake. Not many of our Danes get a farm bought with them in mind.

“Blake is happy, healthy and wise, here at Ash Farms! Blake is the farm protector and my loyal companion. He is my shadow and follows my every move. I love him to the moon and back! I am so grateful to have him in my life (even when he hogs the ENTIRE bed)!”
