New Beginings

Easter and Spring are times of renewal and fresh starts. Even if you do not celebrate the holiday the fresh blooms of spring, longer days and warmer weather all indicate a new beginning. This weekend Valentino got his fresh start with an AWESOME FURever home! He is now living with a dane experienced home with a new dane buddy! It is reported to have been love at first chest bump! This family is so excited to have another dane and are ready too keep up Valentio's training to assure his manners. Congrats to Valentio and his FURever home on their new beginning!

Those of you on Facebook may have seen the numerous postings this week about an older female dane in a shelter a few hours away. She was turned into the shelter for nor reason in particular that we can tell. Facebook blazed with pleas to help save this grey muzzle grand dame. We accepted an offer to transport her to GDRNT and reached out to find a foster home on very short notice. So begins Avery's renewal and fresh start.

Avery is now resting in a loving foster home. It is hard to know exactly how old she is but no doubt she is a Grand Dame of some maturity. Cataracts are clouding her vision, her joints are creaky and her ears are badly infected... yet she is still full of love and sweetness. She already feels better from the ear medicine and bath her foster family gave her and is now resting comfortably while she waits a loving FURever home to spend her golden age.

Avery is not our only Grand Dame looking for their fresh start. Most of you have seen Lady Z and this week we will have another senior lady looking for FURever to post.

If your home has a spot for a grand dame dane to have a fresh start check the ADOPT tab.
