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.

Whose the Man? Duke


Duke was returned to rescue due to a change at his adoptive home. Once a GDRNT Dog, always a GDRNT dog. If an adopter finds themselves unable to keep their dane, our contract says they come back. It doesn't happen often.

Duke is one of those dogs that has not met a heartbeat he didn't like. Everyone was a friend, especially kids. We always take adoption meetings slow, and set them up for success. But when Duke met this family, specifically the son... well that was it.. Duke picked his FURever family and they fell in love with him at first sight.

Ok so the reference may be showing my age...

Walter the FURever Dog


I hate it when I get behind in FURever stories.. they are my favorite part of rescue.. so forgive me while we get caught up....

Furever Home.


Suzie came to rescue just looking for a place to spend her FURever years. Prior to rescue she had a loving home who suffered a lose and we agreed to find Suzie an awesome FURever home.

Everyone knows I love adoption meetings and this one left me with a huge smile. Suzie's furever family fell in love with her at first sight and was already to make her feel FURever home.

The long and winding Road to Happy Ever After


When a dog comes to us their first stop is to our of our veterinarians for a medical evaluation and treatment. Prior to adoption all our dogs are altered, fully vaccinated, microchipped, and treated for any/all necessary medical conditions. Since 97 per cent of all dogs that come in are heartworm positive we treat for that, otherwise they go on prevention. Many of the dogs come to us with other medical concerns that can take time, money and love to resolve.

Home is Where the Heart is.. FurEver Home


Heart came to us as a mature lady with so much love to give. I don't think she fully understood why she was at the shelter after all these years but once she hit her foster home... She knew.
