Meet Cooper! He’s a handsome 4-5 year old piebald Dane. He’s current on vaccinations, neutered and heartworm negative. He came to us from St. Bernard rescue and was with a family from a puppy until they posted him on Craigslist. He was then adopted out to an older couple and his vet records say the reason he was surrendered back was due to urinary issues. He has had x-rays and our vet was unable to find anything medically to be a problem besides a urinary tract infection, which has now cleared up. He loves being outside playing with his toys and barking at the wind, trees and birds!! Getting love is his second favorite activity. He will come nudge your hand and wiggle is head into your lap to get scratches on his head & behind his ears. He is pretty well trained and will ignore you when he wants to be stubborn, but he does listen in the end. We are working on learning that the trash can in not a treat hiding spot!! Cooper still eats food and drinks his water like he’s afraid that he won’t be getting them again; we’re using a puzzle feeder bowl and a smaller water bowl. He does really well with other dogs, his size and smaller. They play a nightly game of toy bandit. Squeaky toys & rope toys are the ones his likes the best. Cooper likes to take walks and is excellent on a leash. He is very curious about everything; just like a man he has to check out all the cars.
He still has some potty problems to work on. If he gets too excited he dribbles, he has accidents almost every night even in the crate. And most days he’ll have one in the house. He’s a really sweet boy looking for a forever home! 


Thor is a handsome 160lb mantle. He is a year and a half, still a pup! He was with a family unable to take care of him. He’s neutered and also has had his stomach tacked. Thor gets along with other dogs, cats, kids and has been fine with horses as well. He is house and kennel trained. Thor is a typical Dane and thinks he’s a lap dog!







Sully is a 3 yr old neutered male that came to us from a shelter. He loves walks, shaking stuffed toys, ropes and cuddles. He is filled with personality and although he has claimed one of my couches of his own, he still shares. He likes other dogs but needs to warm up to them and can get a little grumbly if they are too high energy. He gives the best hugs and is an awesome body pillow at nighttime. He has been around cats a couple times and although curious he did not get aggressive. He is as sweet as he looks with anyone, good with kids (has been surrounded with kids 6 and up being loud and he just let them pet him) and has a kind heart. He’s a sweet boy looking for a forever home of his own.






Bristol is a 7/8 year old senior that came to us locally from Craven Pamlico Animal Services as a stray. She was in pretty bad shape when they found her, the smell of her body was awful. She had quite a few vet visits for the first few months she was with us. Lucky for her she was at one time getting care from someone as she was already spayed and miraculously heartworm negative! She has been battling chronic skins infections and allergies. She had a urinary tract infection, ear infections in both ears and a skin infection. She’s been on meds to help battle all her infections and she is still receiving medicated baths weekly to help her skin (and will require these long term). She was pretty thin but she’s gained a good amount and is a healthy weight for her age. We are also waiting to hear back from the specialist as we believe that Bristol may also have Wobbler’s, a condition that affects the cervical vertabrae and is common in Great Danes. Despite all of this, Bristol is an amazing girl who has never met a stranger!
