Available Dogs

Our adoption area is flexible along the East Coast provided we can find a rescue in the area willing to perform a home visit for us.  In addition, you will still be required to come to the foster home of the dog with all of your current dogs and family members to adopt.

Our adoption fees are 350.00 for dogs under 1 and 325.00 for dogs over 1.

GDRA Adoption Application-revised

Mickey

Mickey Mantle was an owner surrender through no fault of her own. Like all puppies, she’s just about 1, she has an high level of energy. She would best be placed in a home with older children. She is spayed and UTD on her shots. She has Cherry Eye, which I’m treating with drops.  She is a loving cuddle bug, who just wants to be loved. She just hates to be separated from her “people”. So you’d have a shadow wherever you go.  She has had no training, so I’m working on that. She’s picked up “sit” quickly and comes when called.   She is crate trained and I’m working on house-breaking. 

She’s great with other dogs, at home and out in public. Cats, not so good. Mickey just wants to play but my cat doesn’t. She would love a dog to play and run with. She does counter surf, she’s taught me to put all dishes in the dishwasher immediately, but again, I’m working on that. She just needs some guidance and patience.She is an awesome baby and with training, she will be a wonderful housemate.

Bella

 

Bella is a 1 year and 7 months old,  spayed female, heartworm negative, and house broken with a fantastic personality. Bella is a bit smaller of the breed weighing 83lbs. She has integrated very well in our foster home that has a 4 yr old daughter and a 11 yr old son including a dachshund with IVDD. We are improving on kitchen manors. Saying that she can be a bit of a counter surfer at times but has shown much progress in eradicating this naughty behavior. Other progresses include, the habit to jump up to greet. We have decreased this behavior by 95%. She is a excitable girl with a will to please her loving family. Bella enjoys playing fetch and going for walks.

We Have enjoyed our time with Bella and seen her intelligence to learn what we are wanting from her. I feel she would be the perfect addition to structured family. From a day at the park to families sporting events. Bella is proud in supporting her family anywhere they go. She has shown to be versatile in a stay at home life to a more active life style.   

Barney

Barney is an amazing dog!  Barney is 3.5 years old.  The fact that he can’t see doesn’t slow him down at all!  He is the first blind dog that we have had in our home & he’s been fascinating to watch learn his way around the house, and around the back yard.  He gets along well our 2 female danes (2yr & 3 yr) as well as our female lab (3 yr).  Barney is the typical dane couch potato!  He especially likes to be near people & will lay across your lap or beside you just to be with you.  Does not have a very high energy level, does like to go out & wander around and find a sunny spot to lay down in.  Barney does get excited when it’s time to eat.  We are working on sit / stay for this.  He will make a great addition to a family.  We do not know how he would be around children, recommend they be older due to his size & sight issues.   Does not show any signs of being abused, loves everyone male or female.   Only thing he does not seem to like are thunderstorms.  He will get in bed with you for protection!

Phoebe

Phoebe is a 6 month old pure Black Great Dane Puppy,  she has no white on her toes or chest, she is a stunning black color, with the softest fur.  Phoebe has a mind of her own, so she will need a savvy family for her forever home.  Phoebe is named after the Friends character Phoebe because of the way she runs, her legs are just everywhere running, it is pretty comical, she was born Cow Hocked but it does not slow this little lady down, she is a hard player and a great runner, she loves to run all over the back yard, play bowing constantly as she runs. Phoebe gets along great with the other 2 Danes in the foster home, a male and female,  she is starting to play with the cat and they even lay together and take naps at times, but she will chase on occasion. She is almost completely house trained but that is with a doggie door.  Phoebe loves to be loved on and is a good cuddle bug, she will crawl right up in your lap for cuddles. Phoebe knows how to sit and we are working on stay but she gets so excited she wont stat but a couple of seconds.  Phoebe also jumps up on you when she gets excited and we are also working on her jumping.  She will fit into almost any home but not with very young children because she is high energy and does jump. Phoebe is a fantastic girl with all the puppy in the world inside her and she is looking for that special home.

 

 

Lucy

UPDATE:  Lucy is now 14 months old and it appears that she will stay on the smaller side for a Dane. She continues to learn new things and experience new situations and is doing well. Tasty treats work best for her and she aims to please. She recently met an older male Dane and didn’t seem to mind him, we’ll slowly introduce her to younger males soon.  Lucy did have a skin infection, which is now cleared up but she does have some allergies due to her weakened immune system from her beginnings. So far, it’s easily managed by diet though. She is really looking for a comfy couch, a warm human lap and a quiet home to call her own!

Lucy is a 6 month old black female who came in to rescue as part of a seizure. She came in with her sister and another puppy a week older, all 3 of them were very sick. She was underweight and was also fighting kennel cough and giardia.  Lucy can be somewhat protective of her food and toys and would do best in a home with older children or teenagers who understand to give her space. She is a sweet girl and very smart. She knows how to sit and we are working on other commands. She absolutely loves people but does need slower introductions as she’s not been socialized and can be very shy with strangers. With time and confidence, she will make a great companion for someone. She is a friendly girl that desires nothing more than a warm lap and someone that can devote time to working with her. Potty-training is still an issue as she has had multiple urinary tract infections since coming in to rescue. She is currently living with other large dogs and 2 cats. She would probably do best with male dogs and no cats as she likes to chase them. Obedience class will be a requirement for Lucy.
Willow

Willow is a 6 month old black female who came in to rescue as part of a seizure. She came in with 2 other puppies (Lucy and Paisley), all 3 of them were very sick. She is a week older but the last one left in her litter. She was underweight and was also fighting kennel cough and giardia. Willow is protective of her food and toys and would do best in a home with older children or teenagers who understand to give her space. She is a sweet girl and very smart. She knows how to sit and we are working on other commands. She absolutely loves people but does need slower introductions as she’s not been socialized and can be very shy with strangers. She is a friendly girl that desires nothing more than a warm lap and someone that can devote time to working with her. She will be beginning obedience class soon and it will be a requirement for her classes to continue once adopted to ensure she is properly socialized . Potty-training is still an issue as she has had multiple urinary tract infections since coming in to rescue. She is currently living with other large dogs and 2 cats. She would probably do best with male dogs and no cats as she likes to chase them. Willow would probably do best in a quiet home where someone can slowly work and build her confidence.
