Duchess (A037481) is a dog fit for a queen! We love this velvet babe with her gorgeous Spanish eyes and sweet ways. Her very last safe day is Tuesday, May 5, so she needs an adoption application in before then, ideally now, Monday, or Tuesday morning. We don't like last minute for these animals because too much can go wrong. Everything should go right for this girl, who deserves a break in life and some real love and attention.
Contact the Humane Society/SPCA of Sumter County, Inc. 352-793-9117 to inquire about and meet beautiful Duchess!

Subject: Great Dane Bella
Sent: Tue, Jan 20, 2015 1:00:33 PM

I work with Covenant Pet Trust in Lake City Florida. We work with terminally ill people to place their pets prior to the death of the owner. Normally we do not take pets from the street however, we were contacted by a woman who found two dogs living under a bridge in Jacksonville. After spending two weeks trying to find the owner she could no longer keep them and asked for our help as she was heading to the shelter. One of the two dogs was the Great Dane in the pictures and video attached. Knowing the fate of large black dogs in an open admission shelter we could not let Bella be brought to the animal control. So, she is currently in one of our foster homes. We are looking for a Dane rescue that could take her into their adoption program. As you can see Bella is malnourished. We are currently feeding her 4 times a day and she is a great eater. She is heartworm tested negative, dewormed, vaccinated for rabies, bordetella and 5 way puppy shot (no lepto). Our vet believes that she is about 1 year old. As you can see from the video she has a wonderful temperament. She get along with dogs (there are 4 dogs in her foster home) she LOVES people of all ages...great with kids. Her foster parents have chickens and cats and although she will chase them her foster dad can call her to stop and she does. I would really like for Bella to go to a rescue as opposed to us adopting her out because I want her to be with people who know the breed. Chances of us finding her a good indoor home in our area are slim. Please, if any of you may be able to take her into your program contact me on my cell at 386-288-1339. I can help with transport if necessary.
Thanks so much,

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
Sent: Mon, Nov 17, 2014 2:50:06 PM

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.

Around 100 lbs.
One year old.
