Noah's Home for the Holidays

Noah came to rescue on a particularly rainy day. His transporter had to outmaneuver flash flooding to get to and from the shelter and then to the vet for Noah's intake exam. In spite of his exciting entrance to rescue, Noah turned out to be one of the easiest fosters in recent memory. He tested heartworm negative, had no significant health concerns, and simply needed to be vetted, neutered, and evaluated before he would be ready for his new family. Plus, he was great with everyone he met - pets included. And did I mention that he's quite the looker?

Lex Found His Lady

Lex charms everybody he meets. They all said they would love to keep him if they could - from his transporter to his foster to his vacation foster. Well, guess what? His vacation foster happened to have a Lex-sized spot in her home, just waiting for him to make himself at home! Her sweet senior Dane passed away earlier this year, and she had been waiting for the right pup to fill the hole.

Lady Eleanor Has Found Her Manor

Eleanor was returned to rescue through no fault of her own. Once GDRNT commits to a dog, we are committed for the rest of the dog's life. Sometimes, unexpected circumstances arise that mean a dog needs to come back to us. In Eleanor's case, her original foster home happened to be open, and she was able to slip back into her routine with ease.

A Hat Trick of Forever Homes

It’s been a busy few weeks between the auction and crazy-busy intake, but our adoption team has been busy helping pups meet their forever families. Three sweet young things found their families and are getting settled into their new homes.

Jack came to rescue with an upper respiratory infection that required medication to clear. During his recovery, he charmed everyone in his foster home, including the resident Dane. Jack met his match in a single guy who was looking for a dog to hang out with him. Now he’s got a couch to call his own.

Furever Home. Kyra.

Miss Kyra came to us as a shy, quiet lady, looking for a home to meet her needs of calmness. Kyra's wish came true. She was matched with a mom that needed a calm, quiet cuddly dog. Kyra walked into her match home, met mew mom and it was instant love for both. Kyra is happy to be an only dog and getting all the attention and love from her new mom. YIppeee

NTXGiving Day can Help Harvey and Bruce

Harvey and Bruce came to us separately within days of each other, but their stories are all too similar to many of the Danes that come to us. Both are seniors. Both are heartworm positive. Over 90% of the Danes that come to us are heartworm positive at intake and require treatment.

Angel's Guardian Angels

We do not get many young puppies in rescue. A “puppy” is usually between six months and a year old by the time they land at a shelter and need our help. When a shelter calls us for a young puppy, there is usually something very special that he or she needs. Such was the case with Angel.

Mature Lady has found FURever Love

What is a "move in ready" dane? It is a dog with enough life experience to be the perfect pup. Bring them home, show them where the food bowl, potty spot and bed are; add some love and "POOF" you have the perfect family dog.

Generally a mature dane isn't going to potty in the house, chew your favorite shoes, eat your kids legos or knock over their kids.
