Josh is Patiently Awaiting His Furever Home

Josh is an amazing dog, but… There’s always a but, isn’t there? GDRNT rarely takes in Dane mixes, but every now and then we make an exception. Josh was on the euthanasia list at a local shelter. They thought he was full Dane; we thought he was a mix. Now that he’s here, we’re sure he is a mix. At the end of the day, what mattered was that an amazing, young dog was about to be euthanized for space if we didn’t take him.

During his time with GDRNT, Josh has been slow to warm to new things, especially men, but once he is comfortable in a foster home, he is laid-back and people-oriented. Josh loves attention! He not a snuggler, but he loves to be petted and especially to be toweled off after a jaunt through a rainy yard. He gets along well with younger kiddos and other dogs but tends to avoid boisterous teenagers. Josh would love a home where someone is there with him most of the day and may do better in a home with another dog playmate.

Josh has been with rescue for almost ten months, and we are scratching our heads as to why this amazing two-year-old hasn’t found his furever home yet! If you live in the DFW metroplex and think Josh might be the missing piece to your family, please visit www.danerescue.net and fill out an adoption application. Our goal is to match approved adopters with the best dog for their family, but if you are interested in Josh, we will certainly consider whether he is a fit.
