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.
He is about 19 months old. Chaney is a handsome dark brown brindle. When he arrived he was very skinny- about 110 pounds. He has put a little weight on, and filling out nicely. He is a very loving Dane!!! We have had him as a foster for about a month. And have fallen in love with him!
Chaney is neutered and up to date on vaccines. He is crate trained. He walks well on a leash. He is good with children. He loves to play with our Dane! He was temporarily in a boarding facility, before he joined us for fostering. He can play rough at times. He enjoys meeting new people! To our knowledge- he has not been around cats, and loves to chase squirrels. He is very obedient. He needs a lot of TLC- and is your typical leaner and loves to be very close & cuddle. Chaney needs a loving forever home!!
Meet Harlow! She came to us on Halloween as an owner surrender at animal control. She was pretty thin and in bad shape. She’s a very small girl, only around 70lbs at 14 months old. The vet did say her growth could have been stunted but it’s possible she’s mixed with something else. Harlow is a very sweet girl and loves to play with her foster brothers and sisters, all furry ones! She has lived with cats and young kids and did just fine. She is deaf but that doesn’t slow her down. Her foster is working on sign language with her. She is not yet crate or house trained but we are working on that too! She also has ringworm but she’s been on oral medication as well as medicated baths and doing much better! We have scheduled her spay and hernia repair for the first week in December. Once that’s done, she will be ready to go. Since she’s deaf, we require a fenced yard as well as another dog living in the home. Do you have room for a teacup Dane on your couch?
Isabelle is a wonderful girl that is around 3-4 years old. She came in HW positive and has completed her first treatment. She will also need eye surgery in both eyes and have to be spayed. She is a true love. Her picture was taken by the wonderful folks at Ravenscry Photography. You can see more of their work here:https://www.facebook.com/pages/Ravenscry-Photography/281802615180144
Jasper is a 7 month old male dane. He is a very sweet boy that is looking for someone that can help him become the great dog that he is meant to be. He is good with other dogs and cats. He has not had much in the way of training so he will need a family that will continue to take him to classes. He takes treats gently and gives soft kisses and hugs. He has mastered the great dane lean.
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 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.
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 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.
Cavanaugh has been improving greatly. She is getting more confident around new people and at the recent Pet Adoption Expo in town she even voluntarily went up to men that were new to her. She does this frequently on our training exercises too. She has even relaxed a bit more around her foster Dad; enough to lie down next to him on the floor and allow him to pet her past her shoulders. Cavanaugh has developed a love for riding in the car. Her favorite part I think is the anticipation of the destination and putting her head out the window. We have found that Cavanaugh likes children. She will go to them looking for loving and will let them tug on her a bit before seeking asylum elsewhere. Our greatest accomplishment with her is seeing her relax enough on a walk that when on a trail, we can take her off lead and she doesn’t run away. She actually has started exploring instead of staying by my side but will return on command. Cavanaugh will be a great addition to a home willing to be patient with her as she adjusts to her surroundings and learns to trust her new family.
Update: Cavanaugh is progressing nicely. In November she marched in a Holiday Parade and did very well. At home, she is very protective and barks at everyone that walks through the door. Cavanuagh watches everyone that comes in the house until she is sure of what their intentions are. She gets excited and anxious easily. Her behavior with men is improving with one exception – her foster Dad. Cav is still not fully trusting of him. She will play with our son-in-law and his brothers in the yard but not Dad. Cav has gotten so Dad can walk her on a leash and even relaxes after a few minutes. Cavanaugh loves long walks and the more exercise she gets the more relaxed she is. Cavanaugh doesn’t like to be left alone for excessive periods of time. She does suffer from separation anxiety and will start to chew on things not for doggy’s attention. She will voluntarily go lay in a crate but doesn’t like the door to be shut. She fights to get out.
Update: Cavanaugh is progressing nicely. She can to live with us about six weeks ago and we discovered she is a little leery of men in her home. She barks at them when they come into the house but once they sit down she will slowly work up to getting close so she can get her loving with the rest of the dogs. Once they stand up she will bark at them again – even her foster Dad. Cavanaugh is weighing in at a whopping 110 lbs. She came to our home at 101 lbs. She is getting better at responding to basic commands and walking on a leash. Cavanaugh feels best trying new things with her foster fur-sister nearby and she is very food driven. Oh, as you can see in some of her pictures, she loves to chase balls. She is such a clown when we are playing fetch that I can’t help but laugh at her. Cavanaugh will probably do best in a home that has another female dog – male dogs her age or older seem to put her off. She seems intimidated by them. She does fine with our 11 month old male Dane and seems to like kids. The toddlers have her confused but she does well with them
Cavanaugh is about two years old, and came to me twenty pounds underweight, covered in scars, scratches and sores from other dogs. On top of that, she had worms, ear infections, staph infection, conjunctivitis in her eyes, and was terrified of everything. Despite all of this, she is the sweetest little thing who plays with her foster brothers, follows me around the house, and let me poke and prod her twice a day when I had to administer 4 different medications with very little complaint. Most of her scars and scabs have faded and become barely visible (yay) and she is beginning to trust more every day. She’s a little wary of men, but allows them to pet her as long as they move very gently and are sweet to her. She also began taking treats from me a few weeks ago. Her potty training is pretty much under control and she is crate trained, but has some anxiety when left alone, even in her crate. Some patience, love and more time will heal the psychological scars she still has. Despite the special care she needs right now, she is a wonderful little girl! She is smart, and loves to snuggle, sleeps in bed with me all night long without even getting up to wander. She plays with her foster brothers like she’s a puppy and jumps in giant circles when she gets too excited. Cavanaugh is currently taking Prozac to help her with her anxiety.
Cavanaugh is between 3-5 years old and has had a rough life so far. She has scars all over her body from wounds that are healing. However, her spirit still shines through. She enjoyed her first bath so much. She probably realized that along with it, her past life washed away. She came from a back yard breeder along with 2 other danes and 3 mastiffs. She is good with the 2 male dogs in her foster home. She is still unsure of new men but is learning to trust. Quick movements also make her a little nervous so she probably needs to go to a home without children at this point. She may be better in the future but for now, she is still learning that all people are not bad! Check back soon for more updates.
