Beau is a 22 month, 130 pound Great Dane who is ready for his forever home. He is crate trained but loves to snuggle in bed. He will be best in a home with no other animals and without small children. Beau quickly adapted to using the doggie door for his potty breaks and playtime rituals. Beau loves toys and loves to play tug-a-war. He’s energetic when it’s time for a walk, but settles down when Netflix is on. Beau does well on a non-retractable leash with halter and is in the process of learning to heal. Additionally, Beau is learning simple tricks like “sit” and “shake”. He routinely comes when called, but can get distracted by the mailman, neighborhood walkers, or cats. He is up to date on all vaccinations, and was neutered in early August. He requires loving goodbyes before you go to work, and quick loving recognition when you come home! Beau is good with children. He is an amazing dog with a lot of love to give but can become too attached to his people and at times will become protective and at times possessive, especially when other strange dogs are approaching. He will continue to need patience, time, consistency and training. He is UTD. To adopt Beau apply here!
Meet Lucky! Lucky is a small, dainty 10 year young female. Don’t let her age fool you, she loves to run and play in the backyard, and has been caught a time or two rolling around in the grass. She lives in a home with stairs and does fairly well. Presently, she lives in a foster home with 3 children between the ages of 7 and 14 and loves them. She also gets along well with her 150lb Great Dane foster sibling. Lucky has been around other small dogs and cats and doesn’t mind them at all. She has a very easygoing personality, good manners and listening skills. Lucky will wait for permission to snuggle on the couch and is completely housebroken. She loves riding in cars, taking walks in the neighborhood and being with her people. She has been spayed and is UTD. To adopt Lucky apply here!
Duke gives the best snuggles. He likes to be moderately active during the late morning to afternoon, but after that, his favorite activity is laying on your lap. He’s great on a leash, and has been awesome with kids and other dogs, and he has recently encountered cats with no issue. He eats well and sleeps in his crate without complaint.
Duke is 5 years old and was rescued from Animal Control in Wayne County, Kentucky. He has a deformation on his leg that appears to be from an injury that healed incorrectly when he was very young. It does not seem to bother him now – he can run and jump with the best of them – but the doctor says that when it does start to bother him there are leg braces that can help him maintain his mobility.
Don’t let his age deter you. He’s past his puppy phase and ready to be your couch potato. Duke is neutered, has had a gastropexy, and is UTD. Apply to adopt Duke here!
Meet Bruce! Bruce is an 8 month old Dane who is looking for his new forever home! He was rescued from Alabama in September 2019 after a Good Samaritan could not afford to care for his previously broken and then infected hind leg. After many months of healing, medications, and one surgery, his leg is almost back to normal!
Despite the many setbacks Bruce has had during his short life, he is still full of energy and love! He loves to play with his foster brothers and stealing toys is a great pastime. He is crate trained and house trained and does well walking on a leash. Bruce is still very much so a puppy and loves to run and play, sticks and leaves are his favorite! He loves cats, but sometimes a bit too much, and can be a bit more intimidating than he realizes.
Even though Bruce has had surgery to mostly repair his leg, unfortunately, it may not be his last. It is still unclear if there are any other unhealthy pieces of bone left in the leg that could need to be removed. It is also not known at this time if his growth plate was affected and how it may affect his left hind leg’s growth compared to the right. Bruce will also need to be neutered, gastropexied, and have his umbilical hernia repaired.
Bruce is a special guy who deserves a home who is willing to work with any future procedures and recoveries he may need! So far, he has handled all of this in stride and any future family would be lucky to have him as their new addition! Apply to adopt Bruce here!
