When 97% is not an "A"

97% of the danes we take in are heart worm positive.. .. I did the math.... these days I am more surprised when a dog comes in heart worm negative. No joke. Combine this with the other common issues, mange, emaciation, cherry eye, respiratory infections and spay/neuters GDRNT spends an average of $1,000 a dog. We have some of the best vets in the area who treat our danes at substantial and sizable discounts.

This 4th of July

A great dane size "Thank You" to all those who have and continue to serve to protect the freedoms we have in this Country. An extra prayer to those families whose service means they are far apart today. ........ Did you know that dogs played a part in the revolutionary war?

Your Dog & Fireworks

I love Fireworks! What better way to celebrate? The colors, the noise, the show and the cool evening air... what is not to like? Well Mocha could tell you it is the colors, the noise, the show and the noise:) Fireworks can be a frightening experience for some dogs. Frightened dogs have different reactions: some tremble at their owners' feet, others retreat to a hiding place, (Mocha will be found in my closet) some try to run off (traveling for miles), and others display bizarre behavior. Even the best behaved dogs can be unpredictable and destructive when frightened.

WOW! What a Day!

A Great Dane Size THANK YOU to everyone who came out today to the Highland Village Petco! We had a TON of visitors .. I tried to talk to each of you but I am sure I missed some!

Special thanks to our foster danes Allison, Oliva, Max and Baya and their foster families! A huge paws up to personal danes Lady Kate, Aberdeen, Gigi and Declan. (GOSH I hope I didn't forget anyone) and our fabutastic volunteers!

Hot Cars make for Hotter Dogs.....

I don't know about your dog but my Diva Dane LOVES to ride in the car! So I take her every chance I get... the highlight of her day is school carpool! At the moment she is not to happy with me.... because school is out (no twice a day carpool) and it is just too hot and the car heats up way too fast! I still take her if dropping off kids or picking up when I know I do not have to get out of the car but I leave her home if I have to make even a short stop......
