Happy Tails

July was a busy month for rescue. Our intake team was swamped with shelter requests, and we are a little bit behind on adoption announcements. But, we have three happy tails to share!

Maya came to rescue from a local shelter after she was found as a stray. Everyone who met her loved her sweet personality, including her new family. They tell us that she loves to snuggle inside with them and play out in the yard. She’s getting along well with the kiddos and resident kitty. As her new mom says, “…this was a match made in Great Dane Heaven!”

Tucker’s story is all too common. He ended up at a shelter and then in rescue as a teenager without manners but sweet as can be. Many of the 18 month to 2 year-old Danes who come into our program are a bit rambunctious and need quite a lot of training on how to behave like ladies and gentleman. Unfortunately, cute puppy behavior is not so cute on a 125-pound dog. Luckily, Tucker found a foster home well-versed in teaching proper manners, and he was eager to learn. Even better, he found a furever home that will continue the training while showering him with love.

Hank came to rescue ready to find his furever home. He was healthy and charmed everyone he met. All he needed was the right family to complete his fairy tale. Happily, an application came in that was a great match. Now, Hank has a family to call his own.

Congratulations to Maya, Tucker, Hank, and their new families!
