Catching Up on Furever Homes

We do not want to forget to update everyone on all the amazing FURever homes that have been happening! We are so grateful for our FURever families and the life long commitment they make to GDRNT Danes.

Congrats to our FURever families that adopted/committed to love their GDRNT Danes! Yippee to Zoey, Pickle, Keane, Roman, Harriet, Meatball, Kadie, Bear, Lucy, and Mason! Whew! and more coming so stay tuned.

A big welcome to the GDRNT Family to these FURever families.

Marching into April FURever Homes

For our intake team April came in and and went out like a lion. Things around here don't seem to be letting up so to bring everyone up to date on all the PAWsome FURever homes we are gonna do a big FURever PARTY Post! We want to CONGRATULATE Elvis, Frosty, Hugh, Olive, Rocky, Rudy and Bailey!

FURever February Homes

Yup still catching up lol... Just because we are late sharing FURever stories doesn't mean they are not happening!

Things around here are super busy when we have puppies and in February 3 of our special needs double merles found experienced FURever homes who will not only love them but are totally qualified and experienced to make sure these puppies grow into awesome family members!

Four of the Five adoptions in February went to past adopters who have adopted more then one dane from us over the years.

Three of these adoptions were "foster failures" lol

One of our puppies found his home via "failure". This is when failing is a good thing... Foster failing means you have failed as a foster home but have become a FURever adopted family to your foster. In February we had 3 super experienced foster families decide to make their fosters permanent family members! I cannot even count how Manu fosters have successfully passed through these foster homes over the years. Each of these homes have been fostering, volunteering and supporting GDRNT for over 10 years...

One of the biggest compliments to our organization is when people come back to us for their newest FURkid. GDRNT has been at this since 2001, and some of our adopters have been with us since year 1. I tell new adopters that we do not adopt and run but are here to support adopters for the duration. So CONGRATS to all our adoptive families new and old and welcome to the GDRNT Family.

January Adoptions!

WE have been busy and need to catch up on some FURever homes so lets start with January.

Isa- came to us from a small area shelter underweight and not feeling great.. but wow what a great spirit this girl has. It was pretty much love at first sight for her furever family and now this beautiful girl has a loving family who loves her tons!

No Longer Curious about FURever

Curious George always wondered what life in an amazing FURever home would be like, but not any more! George came to rescue from a local shelter where he found himself. Shelter staff contacted us about this young dude who was not doing well in the shelter. Boy did he bloom in foster care! George lived up to his name and is curious to see who will pet him next, what lap he can warm or toy he can have.

Rocket has Landed on Forever Home!

Rocket came to us after Hurricane Harvey when his foster home was caught in the storm. He had been in rescue for sometime prior to the storm and looking for a place to land so he ends dup with us.

Johnny Cash has left his Rusty Cage and Walked a Line Straight into FURever

Johnny Cash had the Prison Blues before he came to rescue but rescue didn't back down and stopped his cry, cry crying and released Johnny from the ring of fire. One piece at a time this man in black got his rhythm and left the home of the blues. This brown eyed handsome man found the green, green grass of a forever home and said goodbye to the sea of heartbreak. So doggone lonesome Johnny Cash has finally found the thing called love! (see what I did there:)

Motley has found his Crew!

Motley is one cool dude and he now has found his FURever Crew! He came to rescue skinny and not feeling great but he is fully recovered and found his perfect FURever family. Motley always wanted a human his own humans and now he has found the besets Forever family perfect for him.

Thanks to all our volunteers and his adoptive family who made all this happen!

FURever Home... For a Senior Dane

Some humans have a seemingly endless capacity for love. GDRNT has been blessed to meet many such people over the years. From our fosters to our volunteers to our adopters, we have been given many examples of the power of love to transform a scared shelter dog into a happy, healthy pup who has found furever.
