The Duchess has Found her FURever Estate

Duchess is a mature lady who needed lots of loving care when she arrived at rescue. She was heartworm positive and had pressure sores in need of healing. We were worried how she would respond to treatment, but as Duchess found comfort and care in an experienced foster home, she began to blossom. Then, an awesome adopter came along looking for a sweet, mature girl like Duchess to add to her home. Now, Duchess has two fur-siblings to play with and a home to shower her in love. Congratulations!

Momma takes the No Puppy Pledge and Finds FURever

Emily was dumped with her young puppies and left to fend for all of them. Her first stroke of good luck came when she was taken to an animal shelter that called GDRNT to help them. Surprisingly, she was heartworm negative. Just when things were starting to look up for Emily, her puppies became symptomatic for parvovirus. Sadly, one of the pups did not survive, but three pulled through and have since found fantastic homes. After that hurdle, Emily’s life became significantly better. She was in a loving foster home, took her no-more-puppies pledge (spay surgery), and had a safe place to rest until her perfect furever home came along. After a few months with GDRNT, a young lady in search of a calm companion applied to adopt. Now, Emily has a home to call her very own.

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!”

An Update on Sable, the Flower Girl

We love getting updates from our adopters (hint, hint!) and are thrilled that Sable, now Lady, found an awesome home. Her new mom and dad recently said "I Do", and Sable and her pup-sisters were the flower girls! Check out this adorable photo of the flower girls and the happy couple. Congratulations and may you have many years of joy!

Dixie's Happily Ever After

Dixie came into rescue from a local shelter and was a bit nervous to find herself in a new place. She was sweet as could be from the get-go, but she needed a little time to regain her confidence and shine. When an awesome family came along who looked like a good match, Dixie immediately warmed up to them – it was like she knew they were meant to be her family!

An Update on Gypsy's Happily Ever After

Here at GDRNT, we love getting updates on Danes from their furever families! Some of you may remember Gypsy, who spent over a year with rescue waiting for the right home. She was adopted a few months ago, and her family recently sent an update (and gave us permission to share!). Thanks to her family for loving her and for sharing your story!

A Safe Place to Rest His Head

We do not often get puppies in rescue, and when we do, we never know if they will be full Dane. Kellyn and his littermates were found in a rural area with their momma, Emily, and we were asked to take them in. While their momma is a Dane, we have no idea what kind of dog the dad is. We only know that he must be big because these pups are growing like weeds!

King Arthur Claimed His Throne

Once a GDRNT dog, always a GDRNT dog. Usually, a furever home is forever, but in the event something unforeseeable occurs, a pup always has a warm bed in one of our foster homes. So it was with Arthur.

Arthur initially came to us as a young tripawd in need of muscle tone and to fully heal from his amputation. This sweet boy loved every soul he met and quickly found a home. When unexpected changes in his adopter’s home meant that they couldn’t keep him, Arthur came back to rescue, still very much a sweet, young guy.

Happy Tails

Our adoption team has been hard at work matching our pups with awesome furever homes! They’ve been so busy, that we’ve gotten a bit behind on updates. So, check in again in the next few days for additional happy tails!
