  • Bella

    Bella is a Rescue In Need and is currently on medical hold
    Bella is a 2 year old petite black female with natural ears who was given up because her human mother died. Bella is incredibly sweet, but because she spent much of her early years in a garage, she craves pets and cuddles. Bella is in a foster home with a 4 year old male Dane. Neither dog is aggressive and the 4 year old definitely takes the lead, they got along immediately. She had previously lived with a 9 year old Golden, and was reported to have done well. She seems to do better with dogs who appreciate her playful nature, since she still acts like a young pup. She has been exposed to cats, and showed no aggression, she simply barked as if she was unsure of what they were. Bella is a typical Dane who prefers the couch over the floor and wants to be by your side at all times, and she seems to prefer females but she is fine with all the males in her foster home. She is completely house trained, but because of her previous time in the garage, does not do well in confined spaces and stresses in a crate. This problem has been solved by gating her in a small room and she does well this way. Because she is only 2, she does chew a little, but is quite satisfied chewing on provided chew toys or Kongs filled with peanut butter. Bella did not arrive with any obedience training, but has quickly learned to sit and wants nothing more than to please her people. Bella loves the children in her foster home (10 and 11 year old boys) and loves to play soccer and give kisses. She responds well to normal child noise and chaos, and is never aggressive (not with toys, food, nor people) but does act a little skittish when new people arrive or if she is scared. Bella is currently receiving heart-worm treatment, so she needs to find a home where she can continue to see a vet for her care and who will be able to continue her restricted activity. Bella will thrive in a home where someone is home a lot to pet her and play. She wants to be someone’s best friend, especially an adult female, and will give as much love to the humans and the children as she can. She also loves to play with another dog, so can be another dog’s best friend too. She is currently on medical hold but once most of her heartworm treatment has been completed we will consider placing her with someone who can commit to continuing her medical care. Bella came to MAGDRL in November 2014. (3)
  • Bella #2
    Bella is a beautiful medium sized 3 year old black female with natural ears who needs to put on a little weight. We call her "Black Beauty" - she is very affectionate and loves to cuddle. She has a big heart and likes to share it with BIG WET KISSES!!! Bella enjoys kids and people but is not really fond of other dogs. Although she is getting more tolerant of them, she is more of a one dog house hold. With training, she could be sociable on a walk - but again would rather say "hi" from afar vs. shaking paws. Miss Bella would make a wonderful companion to a family or an individual person that has time to spend helping her burn off some energy. She knows down and sit, is house broken and loves her crate! Bella came to MAGDRL in November 2015. (5)
  • Bo
    Additional Photos
    Bo is an almost 8 year old (DOB 12/2006) fawn male with natural ears. He came to rescue after his owner's grandchild moved in, who was allergic to Bo. Bo is one of the sweetest and most loyal dogs his foster Mom has been around. When he first came to his foster home, he was a little unsure of himself and a bit scared. He was having a lot of trouble going up stairs. We weren't sure if it was due to age, arthritis, or just being stiff and sore from his traveling that day. She put an orthopedic dog bed on the main level so he could rest and not worry about steps. After she put the kids down for bed and got ready herself, she kept hearing whining noises. Bo was standing at the bottom of the stairs whining because he wanted to be up with the family. She helped him up the stairs, put his bed on the floor next to her bed, and he crashed for the night. The next morning he was like a new dog. He now goes up and down stairs fine. Bo's vet says he shows signs of degenerative neurologic disease in his hind limbs and tail, leading to loss of coordination and fecal incontinence. We have him in a routine now of going outside for 20-30 minutes after he eats and this is helping him a lot. Bo also has a slight irregular heart beat that will have to be monitored, which also makes it so he cannot be neutered. Bo is fine with the two small dogs in his foster home, but is unknown with cats. He walks well on a leash and actually loves going for walks. Bo is not crazy about younger dogs that are trying to play with him, but he is very patient. He is fine in the crate during the day. He just wants to be loved and he is so loveable. He has so much love to give to people. Bo came to MAGDRL in September 2014. (4)
  • Bo #2

    Bo #2 is a Rescue In Need and is currently on medical hold.
    Bo is a beautiful merle 9 month old mantle marked merle puppy with the friendliest, happiest personality. He's a big boy already! He was rescued by good samaritans after wandering the streets with a badly injured leg. The leg injury turned out to be both a condition called osteochondrosis dissecans (OCD) and an ACL injury. In addition, he had mange, whipworms, and coccidia. Bo has had one surgery on his leg already, prior to coming into rescue, but the joint is continuing to deteriorate and will require additional surgery. We are awaiting the results of a joint tap, which will help determine the cause of the OCD, and then will proceed as soon as possible. Bo will be on medical hold for the near future while we get him healthy. Despite everything he has been through in his young life, Bo loves everyone he meets. He gives big Dane kisses to whomever will give him attention – even vet techs doing things that are not comfortable at all! He is energetic and playful and seems to not even notice that his leg isn't working correctly. He is learning his basic manners quickly, and he is completely housebroken. Bo is a puppy, however, and will chew, counter surf, and otherwise get himself in trouble if left unsupervised. He's great with people of all sizes, and he gets along very well with other dogs. He has also lived with cats, and is fine with dog-savvy ones – he will give chase in play. Bo came to MAGDRL in October 2014. (7)
    Update 12/3/14 - Bo is improving, and should soon be healthy enough for surgery. The joint tap was negative for infection, and the mange, coccidia, and whipworms have all cleared. He had a persistent skin infection due to having untreated mange for so long and he is still on antibiotics, but that has also almost healed. He has mastered his basic manners, but we've found that he does need to be told firmly. He's quite happy to get away with whatever he can, but will listen if he knows he must. He loves to romp in the yard, and doesn't let his leg slow him down at all. As he has gotten to feeling better, he has started showing quite a bit of prey drive, so we are changing him to "no cats." Bo gets along well with his foster brother, though his energy and desire to play does get to be a bit much at times. He will need a canine companion who can keep up with him – he's an energetic boy who loves to play.
  • Duke
    Additional Photos
    Duke is a stunning 3 year old mantle male with natural ears who is a love bug and is over the moon about people. He wants to be petted, loved on, held, and hugged. He will sit on you, if you let him. But it is only because he wants to be really really close. He would do best in a home where his people were around most of the time! Duke does get along with other animals and currently lives with a female great Dane and 2 smaller males . He needs to be properly introduced – as he is very curious and he likes being the center of attention. Everyone he meets, two-legged and four-legged has an invisible sign on them that says: PLAYMATE FOR DUKE. And he fully engages all playmates. Duke would do best in a home with larger dogs due to his overactive play style. While Duke is great with cats – he is very curious. If the cat runs – he will chase. When the cat stops – he just wants to play. With our cats, that results in a scratched nose. For him. Although he is smart, his “I want to play” gene is stronger than his ‘smart’ gene. He has to relearn this lesson constantly. He has never tried to bite or mouth any of our cats. He bows to them – and sniffs a lot. Still many times resulting in a scratched nose. Duke has been around kids as young as 2 years old and is fine with them. Sadly Duke has anxiety and would do best in a home environment where there is little to no outside distractions. For this reason he will NOT be placed in a condo or apartment home. He is crate trained and his owners have tried many natural solutions to try and help curb this behavior, but they live near Quantico and the constant war games and other loud noises is just too much for him to handle. Duke has been x-rayed and diagnosed with hip dysplasia in both hips but at this time is just on supplements and pain meds as needed. Duke will be required to attend obedience training as part of his adoption. Duke came to MAGDRL in May 2014. (5)
  • Earl
    Additional Photos
    Earl is a 16 month old mismarked mantle male with harlequin markings with natural ears. This handsome boy is all puppy and is still learning his boundaries. He is finally settling down in his foster home and can be a relaxed and calm boy when he has an outlet for his energy. Earl loves to run and wrestle with his Dane foster sister. He can be overwhelming to her at times with his play seeking behavior. His foster home will separate them at times to give her a needed time out. Earl knows all of his commands, sit, down, stay and come, though he will need to have all of these commands reinforced with continued training. He will pull on a leash and needs work on his leash manners. Earl is housebroken and crate trained. He will chew if left unattended so crating is necessary when no one is at home. He rides great in the car. Earl meets others well and is very friendly. He may take a few minutes to warm up to some men but once comfortable, he is all tail wags and leans. Earl is very affectionate and loving and is very food motivated, making training fairly easy. Obedience training will be a condition of his adoption. Earl does need a strong leader and direction so an adopter with previous Dane experience is best. His foster home adores this silly headstrong boy. Earl came to MAGDRL in November 2014. (3)
  • Goose
    Goose is a Rescue In Need and is currently on medical hold.
    Goose is a very sweet 6 year old merle female with natural ears. She came to rescue when her owners moved away. Goose is an easy-going girl, who just wants a family to love. She is very good with other dogs and with cats. She has excellent manners and is very trustworthy in the house. Goose was diagnosed with Addison's disease two years ago, and it appears to be the "atypical" type. When she came to us, she was on an improper dosage of her medication, so we will be doing further testing once that is at the correct level. Goose is on medical hold until we determine exactly what dosage she will require going forward. Once that's settled, she will require regular vet visits, but should be able to live a happy, normal life. She'll be looking for a somewhat quiet home with at least one canine companion and lots of love and attention. Goose came to MAGDRL in July 2014. (7)
    Update 9/6/14 - Goose is doing very well! Following the vet's reduction schedule, we have her medication down to less than half of what she was initially on. She seems to be feeling a good bit better and more relaxed, and finally seems to be comfortable in her own skin. The constant panting has subsided, and she is leaving water in her bowl now too. We have also gotten her onto a better diet, and I think she looks better – her coat looks less dull, her eyes are brighter, etc. She actually apparently did some trotting around the yard over the weekend too, which is HUGE since she never wanted to do any outside playing before. She also has integrated just fine with her canine sister and brother. We are crossing our fingers that we get her all straightened out, and everything keeps going in this direction! We will be continuing to reduce the medication over the next month, with follow-up tests done along the way, until we get her to the optimum level.
    Update 12/3/14 - Goose had a small setback with her Addison's disease, and required an overnight stay at the emergency hospital. She's home now, and rebounding quickly. We've had to temporarily increase some of her medication, and she will have a series of rechecks over the next six weeks to make sure all her levels stay where they belong. She continues to be happy and quite content, no matter what's going on. She spends her days hanging out with her canine brother and sister, and being as close to her people as possible.
  • Hershey

    Hershey is a Rescue In Need and is currently on medical hold.
    Hershey is a 4 year old harlequin female with natural ears. She came to MAGDRL when she was found abandoned and tied to a light post in a parking lot after having puppies. Hershey was taken to her first vet visit and was diagnosed with having heartworm disease. Further testing revealed Hershey needs intense treatment to get rid of the heartworms and to prevent heart damage. She has begun treatment but has several months of treatment ahead of her. Hershey also needs to test heartworm negative before she can be spayed. The first few days in her foster home, Hershey was very confused and scared. From her initial reaction of growling and cowering when she sees men, we believe she’s encountered some not so nice men in her past. Hershey came to her foster home not knowing any commands or how to walk on a leash. She is slowly learning the world isn’t so scary. She now LOVES snuggle time with her foster parents. She is starting to show herself as a love bug more and more each day as she learns how to trust again. This sweet sweet girl has a lot to learn and a long road to recovery ahead of her. Please consider financially supporting Hershey to help offset the cost of treatment. Check back frequently for updates on Hershey!! Hershey came to MAGDRL in November 2014. (5)
  • Lady
    Additional Photos - updated 11/16/14
    Lady is an 8 year old brindle female with natural ears. She is a laid back, sweet girl that loves you once given the chance to warm up to you. She was given up by her owner when he had to move to his aunt's home after she fell ill. Lady is not crate trained but does not have accidents in the house when left alone for up to 6 hours. She does love to counter surf! Lady loves to sleep on sofas and in bed with our daughter. She loves long walks. When her foster home first got her, her leash manners needed improvement. With the help of a "gentle leader" her leash manners are much better. She gets along well with two other dogs in the house and thinks nothing of the horses and barn cats outside. Lady would love to settle in an attentive home where she can relax and live out her life to the fullest. Lady came to MAGDRL in August 2014. (2)
    Update 11/17/14 -Lady may be eight years young, but don't tell her! She doesn't look it, loves long walks, and jumps around outside like a dog half her age. She is a talker and will tell stories when you come in from a long day at work. She loves everyone she comes in contact with: men, women, other dogs (male and female), cats and horses. We have no small children in the area, so we haven't tried her out with them, but we have a feeling she would be fine with them. All she needs is her forever home to call her own. Please consider adopting this sweet Lady!
  • Lola
    Additional Photos
    Lola is a tall, slim 8 year old merlequin female with cropped and standing ears. She was given up by her owner when forced by court order to give up all her dogs because she had two other dogs that continually escaped her home. Lola was an innocent victim of these circumstances. Lola has arthritis in her hind end which has made her tail stiff and inflexible, but otherwise she is healthy and sweet. She quickly discovered the couch and will share it with her foster dane brother and sister. She is a little skittish but she listens and comes when she is called. She seems to have little training of commands in the past. Lola was having accidents in her foster home and was found to have a urinary tract infection so she is on antibiotics for that now. She does not like to be confined and will not respect a baby gate and will push it down. Her foster home has not tried crating her, but may try and see how she likes that. Lola runs to the door when her foster dad comes home and is so excited to see him, wagging her bent, stiff tail between her legs. We think she is beautiful and just a lovely girl. Lola deserves someone who will love her and keep her happy and comfortable for the rest of her golden years. Lola came to MAGDRL in November 2014. (3)
  • Maddie
    Meet Maddie! Maddie is 8 years old, but don't tell her as she appears to be completely unaware of it! Quite spry for a mature Dane! She is a sweetly disposition girl with a beautiful blue coat and natural ears - when she is inquisitive, she looks like the Flying Nun! Poor Maddie came to MAGDRL after her owner passed away. Maddie cannot (or will not) do stairs, so she would be best in a single story home, but is respectful of gates and does not mind being away from her people overnight in a two story. Like all Danes, she requires good bedding to lie on, and likes to sit beside you on the couch, too. Maddie knows "sit" and takes treats very gently, and we are working on other commands and leash training. She would do best in a low activity home with only older or dog savvy children, at 150 pounds, Maddie is a lot of dog! Maddie is a huge love-bug and leaner. She is not a drooler, but is somewhat of messy eater. She will eliminate on command if on a good feeding schedule. Maddie does show some signs of age with some old lady lumps and bumps as well as a large cyst on her left hand side towards are hip. This does not bother her at all but her forever home will need to be aware of its size for future developments. Maddie is a lovely girl who is looking for a family that will give her a wonderful loving home. Maddie came to MAGDRL in July 2014. (2)
  • Mateo
    Additional Photos - updated 11/3/13
    kids 15+
    Mateo is a healthy male who came into MAGDRL with a female Dane Sada. He is a young 8 years old who likes to play and has a good appetite. He's house broken and is very gentle when you give him a treat. Mateo is a little shy of men when he first meets them as he lived in a home with all woman. He's a real love bug and enjoys getting all the attention you can give him. He does pull a bit on lead but is manageable. Would like to see him adopted with Sada as he's very attached to her and they love to play together. He should go to a home where someone is home the majority of the day and no young children as they make him nervous and he will air snap so its best he's not placed in a home with children under 15 years old or a home that doesn't have young children that come over to visit a lot. Mateo came to MAGDRL in January 2013. (1)
    Update 5/4/13 - Mateo might be 8 years in age but he doesn't act it at all, he loves to run and doesn't show any problems with his rear legs. He loves to snuggle and seems to enjoy being around woman as he's sometimes shy of men. Mateo is very sweet and needs a home without a fencing exception as he will take off and run.
    Update 11/2/13 - Mateo is a quiet laid back kinda guy. His most favorite thing to do in the world is chew on his Nylabone. A very good eater, loves to ride in the car. Is very good for a bath. Just a love bug. Will take all the hugs you can give him. I don't think that he is good with anything small. He's not a barkie kind of dog. Is very well behaved. Pulls a bit on lead but nothing to bad. While we originally wanted to see Mateo placed with Sada, we have found that he would do fine without her as well. Mateo is very healthy for his age. Gets around just fine. He would be a great addition to any family that just wants a real mush. Mateo would love to have a family to call his own, don't let the gray around his muzzle fool you, he still gets the zoomies in the yard and that won't stop the unconditional love he'll give you.
  • Mya
    Additional Photos - updated 11/23/14
    Mya is an approximately 2-3 year old female Dane/Hound mix with natural ears. She was found tied to a fence possibly left there to die. At that time, she was very sick and likely very abused. Mya had a bad ear infection, skin issues and loss of hair. She had early signs of pyometra which could have killed her if they didn't find it early. The shelter contacted the us and we pulled her into our organization. In the weeks following her rescue, her foster family has worked hard to train her to be wonderful family dog. She is now crate trained and house broken. She has a good appetite and loves to go on long walks and jogs. Mya doesn't know yet how to ask to go outside but she sticks to a schedule very well. Mya has no problems with other people or dogs while on a walk. Because of her past, she is incredibly shy and weary of anything new. Unfortunately, this causes her to have difficulty trusting new people. However, although it may take some time, she eventually warms up to new people and is very happy to receive their affection. Mya still appears to be very tentative around kids (partly because the kids are often too loud and animated for Mya), however she shows no signs of aggression. She tries to avoid any contact with children. But will take the treats from their hand very gently. Although she still has a tendency to be weary when there is too much excitement going on around her, her foster family believes that she can fully integrate with a loving family. Given some time Mya will make someone very happy, and you'll be glad you gave her a chance. Mya came to MAGDRL in September 2014. (1)
    Update 11/22/14 - Mya has been with us for almost three months. She has greatly improved since she first arrived. Slowly, but surely, she is overcoming her fears and distrust of people and unfamiliar things. She is now starting to play with us and feel more comfortable with the family. She still distrusts and keeps her distance from strangers. However, overtime she warms up to them and is very good around them. She is perfect on the leash; she shows no aggressive reaction to people, dogs or cats. In fact, she is practically glued to your legs if she is not busy sniffing something. In the house, she is happy to see and welcome new dogs. She shows no signs of territory related aggression. As a foster family, we think that she will need time to adjust to a new family and will do better if there is another dog in the house with her. Mya has a tendency to follow the lead of other dogs and develop trust through them. We don't know that much about her past before coming into rescue, but she still has some partially visible scars under her fur. It looks like she might have had a collar that was too tight and it left a nasty scar under her coat that you can see if you part her fur. However, that does not stop her from being any less sweet, loving and beautiful.
  • Pepper
    Additional Photos
    Pepper is a 5 year old beautiful tall mantle girl with cropped ears. One is flopped which gives her great character. Pepper is a very affectionate and loving girl. She was returned after being adopted and placed in a foster home with 6 children, she is doing great with them there. Pepper does have her quirks, she stresses when left alone. She will rip up any "bags" left in her reach. Her foster home has figured this out and is careful about it, as well as hiding treats and toys for her to find. This has worked well. She is doing great with the boundaries set for her and is learning "stay" as well as reinforcing all of her obedience commands. Pepper has lived with other dogs and is selective about who she likes and dislikes, so she is best as an only dog, but can probably live in peace with a laid back confident large male. Pepper has not lived with cats and will not be placed with any. Pepper came back to MAGDRL in March 2014. (3)
  • Rabbit

    Rabbit is looking for a foster home. Can you help?
    Rabbit is a 2 year old harlequin vision impaired female with natural ears who came to rescue after fighting with other dogs in her home. When Rabbit came into rescue she weighed 81 pounds. Now that she is eating regular meals she has put on 10 pounds in a very short time. Rabbit is very timid of new things as she has peripheral vision issues so things that come from the side or rear cause her to startle. She requires a home that will work slowly with her to be comfortable; once she warms up to you she is all loves. Rabbit will sit for treats and is extremely treat motivated. She has gone from being a dog that did not want touches to a allowing a full body exam within in a few weeks. We will be evaluating dogs and cats within the next week. At this time we don't recommend cats or other dogs. Rabbit came to MAGDRL in October 2014. (2)
  • Rocco
    Additional Photos
    Rocco is currently on medical hold.
    Rocco is a 4 year old mostly white male with natural ears. He is deaf and has some vision impairment, but this doesn't seem to hinder him at all. Rocco was rehomed with another dog when his owner lost his farm due to increased land taxes. His original vet paperwork said that he was positive for Lyme, but was never treated for it. He came into rescue with Giardia and had a nasty ear infection with yeast in both ears. He's on medication for both and is doing well. In addition, Rocco was very thin when he came in to rescue, but he's making up for it now and is getting 3-4 meals a day. He loves his food and if you put his medication in pill pockets there is no problem. Rocco is house broken and sleeps all night. He enjoys having his breakfast before going out in the morning. He is a very smart boy and fast learner and seems to adapt to any situation quickly. Rocco loves to be anywhere you are. We haven't seen any problems with him with other dogs both large and small. It is unknown how he is with kids so we won't place him in a home with children under 12 years of age. He is unknown with cats. Rocco will need to placed with a large female that can handle his rough play. He will not be placed in a home with a fencing exception due to him being deaf. Rocco came to MAGDRL in October 2014. (1)
  • Samuel

    Samuel is looking for a foster home. Can you help?
    Samuel is a very large, very handsome, 4 year old harlequin male with cropped and standing ears. Do not let his size fool you, he is a big Scooby Doo and needs a very Dane savvy home to be able to give him the support he needs to function as a normal Dane. Samuel needs a strong lead to assure him that the world is not a horrible place and he can trust that he will be taken care of and not have to take charge of the situation. Due to his anxiety we are saying no dogs and no children. Once this boy has formed a bond with you he will look to you for reassurance and appropriate behavior limits. If you can give this boy a stable, loving home with consistency, leadership and a low key life then please contact us. Samuel came to MAGDRL in May 2014. (2)
  • Shaq
    Shaq is a 3 year old male heavily marked harlequin with natural ears. He was given up by a family who just could not handle him as he is a very active strong young boy. Shaq is in a foster home with a medium sized female retriever mix and is doing well with her. He also lived with a senior female mastiff and did well with her as well. He was reported to be good with the visiting grandchildren in his original home. His foster home is working with him on manners and leash walking. Shaq will have accidents if left loose when no one is home, so he needs to be crated when left alone. Shaq is a handsome boy and will need someone who can continue to work on his training. Obedience training will be a condition of his adoption and someone who is up for the task of handling a young active very large Dane. He has a history of escaping his original home so secure fencing is a must for his adoption. He will only be placed with female dogs, medium to large sized and no small children as he is just too rough for them. Once he settles, he will be an awesome companion. Shaq came to MAGDRL in November 2014. (3)
  • Stormy
    Adoption Pending
    Stormy is a 2 1/2 year old blue female with natural ears. She has been fostered with us in a kennel since she came to rescue from a shelter. We original were told that she had issues with a female intact French bull dog but she hasn't shown any issues with any dogs since she's been in rescue. She is very good for us. She doesn't mind dogs male or female that she see’s through the fence, either big or small. She not a player with toys that we have seen. Stormy likes to smell around the grass yard and doesn't seem interested in any of the toys there. She would just like to be where you are. Stormy loves to get hugs and will snuggle with you. She does the typical Dane lean while you're giving her attention. She walks well on a leash and loves the car. She has lived with children as young as 7 and did well with a cat she lived with a for a short time. Stormy came to MAGDRL in September 2014. (1)
  • Tank
    Additional Photos
    Tank is a 1 year old black male with natural ears. He is a VERY energetic boy who loves to play, play, play that came to rescue from a shelter. Tank is an escape artist and is constantly trying to figure out how to escape from the fence is his foster home. He figured out how to unlock the gate with his head. Tank has not jumped over the dog gate in the house but has tried to pull it out of the wall with his mouth. He is a counter surfer and we are working on this. He does well with other dogs big and small when greeting them. He gets a bit pushy with them at times but backs down and usually cowers after they put him in his place. He like to throw his paws around when trying to play with humans and other dogs. I would use caution placing him in a home with small dogs just because he is still a puppy. He tries to jump over them and throws his paws at them trying to get them to play. He doesn't realize how big and strong he is and he still has the coordination of a small puppy. Tank also likes to ram you and the other dogs with his head or come up behind you and go through your legs so that your riding him like a horse. He is unknown with cats. He still nips like little puppies do when they are playing. Not at all aggressively just playful. He seems to be fine with all the men he's met while here, even the vet. During the vet visit he seemed to think it was play time even while we were holding him down to get his blood to check for heartworms. He showed no aggression at all. So far he's done very well in a crate. When he meets new people he runs up to them very excited. He has also tried to jump up on them but when corrected stops suddenly. He has a really sweet personality but he needs training, which will be a requirement of his adoption. He is very lovable and friendly. Tank came to MAGDRL in November 2014. (4)

    Aries is a courtesy listing.
    Please contact your local coordinator for more information on him.
    Aries is a 4 1/2 year old black male with natural ears. I am neutered and exceptionally handsome, if I do say so myself. I am pretty powerful but love to lean on my people and would love to spend some time with you. A bit of training and I'd be a great addition to your home.

    Hi name is JAKE! Everyone who has met me thinks I am probably 5-7 years old and I am a perfect blend of Great Dane with Blood Hound and/or Mastiff. I really like everyone and everything I have met so far. I currently live with a couple adults, a couple small children, a few cats and 2 other dogs. I was found 2 years ago after my family moved and abandoned me, tied me to a tree with nothing to eat or drink. A nice couple saved my life. They took me home and gave me a warm place to sleep and all the food I needed to get healthy again. I was really hungry, as I weighed only 85 pounds at that time. But then their lives changed and they had to find a new family for me. The people I live with now are awesome. They love me very much, but they have a human daughter who is having medical issues right now. Because of this, they cant provide the attention and care I need. I recently developed an allergic reaction to fleas that caused my hair to fall out, but I am on the rebound... becoming the slick, handsome boy that I was a couple months ago. AND, I currently tip the scales at OVER 150 POUNDS! My perfect day would be spending time just chilling out with a family who loves me and can provide a healthy, happy home. I honestly don't ask for a lot, I am extremely laid back. It sometimes takes a couple minutes for me to get use to new men, but I warm up quickly. After that, I just stand and lean in for pets and lovin'. Can you find it in your heart to give this handsome, laid back and loving boy a home? His past road has been a bumpy one, he deserves a happily ever after! (2)

    Meet Rocky & Riley. These brothers are Dane/Lab mixes. Their dad was a Dane and mom was a Lab. They are 1 year and 11 month old merles that are neutered and current on their vaccines. They have been living with a female Boston Terrier and have been around the grandchildren ages 2 to 9 years old. Their owner would take them jogging and hiking and they really enjoyed that. Rocky & Riley know their basic commands like sit, down, stay, come, leave it and he walked them on a buckle collar. They are house trained but are young and can be destructive if not exercised and there is stuff lying around. They are good with other dogs most of the time, but sometimes when they are together and on leash they become protective of each other if challenged by another dog. Off leash there isn't a problem. They don't live with a cat and don't react when they see one outside. It would be wonderful if they could stay together but it's understandable that it might not be possible. They would do great in a home with another dog if they are separated so they have someone to play with or an active home that likes to go jogging or hiking. (1)
