Linda- My wife and I just (a few hours ago) rescued a Dane from a couple of college kids down the street. She is a beautiful and sweet 1 year old. We immediately took her to the vet and she seems to be in very good health. Her nails needed trimming and we treated her for flees. She is 90ish pounds and quite lean. As she has not been spayed we have scheduled that for next week and are going to talk to the Dr. about a stomach staple which we are finding is fairly common for Danes. Thoughts?

We are animal lovers who have a yellow lab and 2 cats. We also feed two feral cats in our neighborooh that we had fixed. Our intention is to find the very best home possible for this noble girl and to treat her as family until that time. We are reaching out to you to see if you know of any outstanding forever homes for Blue. Any advice or guidance would be appreciated. Thanks.

My name is Nikki. I live in Clermont. I have a Great Dane named Sage that is about 16 months old. I rescued her from her original owner about a month ago who could no longer care for her. After having her and allowing her to adapt to our home and animals, she is small animal, food and toy aggressive. She is also owner protective. I have 2 teacup Chihuahua's that I am afraid that she will kill if my back is turned even for a second, as well as my cat who is primarily outdoors now and she runs her out of my yard every time she is outside. I also have a 16 month old daughter who she is absolutely fine with, but I am very aware of any contact between the two. In the month that she has come to our house, she has been heartworm tested-neg, brought up to date on all vaccines, including lepto as we live right off a lake. She has been started on Trifexis and has tolerated it well. She is also being fed Iams large breed puppy 1-24 months to add just a bit of weight, she's currently 78lbs and spayed. I can no longer keep her and have tried my local rescues which are all understandably full. I have worked in the shelter business for the past 15yrs and am well aware that with her aggression issues, she will not be adopted out through a local animal shelter. I do believe that she is part pointer or something with a very high hunting and/or prey drive, but primarily Great Dane.

I am literally begging for your help as I can not keep this dog, she is a very loving and joyful pup and would make a great only dog. you are my last resort and if you can not take her, she will end up at the shelter and euthanized.
