Subject: 2 Dane/Lab mix
Sent: Fri, Dec 5, 2014 2:24:43 PM

Hello, I am in need of finding homes for 2 Great Dane/Lab mix brothers. They are 2 yrs. old in January and up to date on all shots. They are brownish grey Merle. They are good natured, non agressive in all areas, love people, kids and other dogs. I have never seen them with cats. They are my son's dogs and he is having health issues and cannot care for them any longer. We are very sad to give them up but my husband and I cannot give them what they need, as we are older and have another dog of our own. Right now they are in Upstate New York with us but my son is in Tampa, in a hospital. We will travel to Florida in early January and would bring them there. I do have photos if needed. Is there any way you can help us find a home or homes for them. Their names are Rocky and Riley. Thank You, Dianne Rizzo 607 546-8014

Subject: I have a Great Dane that needs a loving home

I am sending this email with a heavy heart. Lola was a rescue of sorts. Her original owners did not socialize or even care for this beautiful girl. She is now almost 2 years old, we've had her for the past 9 months. She showed signs of dog aggression and she also does not like strangers. So far we have tried to socialize her with other dogs and she has greatly improved. The issue still are strangers. Our neighbor, who smelled of 5 dogs had come over and Lola tucked her tail and the hair on her back had risen. This is not the first time she has done this, she seems very protective. But as we have people over routinely with kids, we can no longer take the risk of her biting someone. We need a home for to go to that has adequate room for her to run, where the family does not have many guests. She is current on all shots and I can have her documents forwarded from her vet. Please give me a call at 727.755.1367, my name is Aaron. I do not wish to take her to the Humane Society in fear of who might adopt her. But I cannot keep her here.
