Adult Great Dane
Giant Hearts Giant Dog Rescue, Inc
Meet Miss Mabel. She is estimated to be 6 years old. She is up to date on vaccinations. Mabel is heart worm positive and has already begun treatment.
Mabel does well in public and recently enjoyed herself on a big outing to PetSmart and Tractor Supply, she does well meeting new people and enjoyed walking around exploring.
She is heartworm pos. On slow kill treatment. Vaccinated. Not spayed
She's very curious about everything. Likes to try any veggies. Her favorite are sweet potatoes and carrots. She loves to play tug-o'-war with her foster friends. Mabel has to be crated when not home because she loves to chew socks. Bones and toys are great for keeping Mabel busy throughout the day. She's very smart but and learns quickly, it only took a day or two for her to learn how to use the doggy door. Mabel walks fine on a leash. She's very sweet and doesn't understand the concept of personal space. Mabel does have a high prey drive so we recommend a home without small animals.

Adrian is 4 years old, and up to date on vaccinations. He is an intact male. He is great with cats and seems to be the same with dogs. He walks very well on a leash. Loves a morning walk and maybe an afternoon zoom around the back yard. He loves his people quickly with full force hugs. He’s a typical sloppy Dane when it comes to drinking water.

Meet Henny! Henny is somewhat of a couch potato with a lot of personality. She likes to be close to where everyone else is and will go in crate if told to but she doesn’t like it and is vocal with her dislike of it. I have only heard her really bark two times and that is when someone knocked on the door she did not like it, but she LOVES company. She doesn’t pay any attention to my dad that is disabled but wanted all the attention she could get from other males that come to visit. She loves kids she has been around kids age 10, 7, and 9 months and loved them all. She did not try to take food from baby while he was eating. Henny sometimes forgets how big she is when she gets a burst of energy and runs through the house and slides across the floor. When she wants something, usually her treat, she is very vocal and wines and gurgles at you and stomps her front paw on the floor demanding it Now! Lol At night she likes to get as close to you as she can and usually use you for a pillow while you watch tv. She does know basic commands sit, lay, stay, place, and she will go to her place and stay while you eat dinner so she is not towering over you while you eat. She also knows to get a treat she goes to place and lays down. When giving her commands you have to be firm with your tone to make her listen because she does get excited. She is not crated except when company comes and it is just until they get in the door because like I said she does like company and gets overly excited. During the night you can hear her go through the house room to room checking on everyone then she goes back to bed when she knows everything is good in the house. She does not chew cords or furniture, and is very laid back except when you try to pick up sticks in the yard, she thinks that is play time and tries to take the sticks from you and if you throw them in a pile she will drag them back out. You couldn’t ask for any better companion than this and all she wants in return is Love and Treats.

Kingston is a 4 year old great pyrenees. He is neutered and up to date on vaccines. Kingston is a sweet boy who enjoys looking out the window, going on short leash walks, and standing guard at the door. He has been known to stand on top of gates and furniture in the home simply to get a better view of outside. He gets along readily with the other dogs in his foster home, and completely ignores the rabbits that are present in the home. He also is respectful of the beehives present in his foster's backyard. He's fully house trained, and knows basic commands and his name, but like many great pyrenees, is a selective listener. Kingston is at his most confident when wearing his harness. Kingston is a little bit of a picky eater and while he will eat kibble, has proven very selective about which ones he will eat. He would do well in a home with older children who understand that he has no awareness of his size.

Meet Leo! He’s a 2 year old Full Great Dane looking for a permanent home to relax in. He does well around other dogs, but is playfully dominant at first. Slow introductions in an open area is best so that the dogs are free to play. Leo is a playful instigator. He does well around children since he grew up with them in his previous house, though he is very heavy and is fully capable of knocking over an adult. He is quite clumsy- so older children may be best. Cats are unknown at this time. Leo does well with loud noises so fireworks and loud power tools don’t bother him. He enjoys lounging around, but is very playful and craves attention at times. He’s quick to roll on his side and let you pet his belly. Doesn’t mind his tail being touched or his paws being handled- but kindly tells you when he’s over you clipping his nails. He listens well, but needs firm training. He is headstrong and pushy and decides when to listen to commands- especially with recalling. Leo has some skin issues going on so he’s on some medicine to help him manage his skin allergies. Leo is as good as they get. With the right home, he will flourish and be the perfect companion.

Meet Scooby. He is approximately 2 years old and 109lbs. He was very nervous when he was first rescued from a shelter. Here are things his foster - He is extremely sweet and loves people, but he especially loves men. - Up-to-date on vaccines - Heart worm negative - Has made huge improvements with listening but still needs training. He is doing better with "come," "no," and "lay down." - He loves to play hard, loves toys, and needs an outlet for energy - He is much improved on being alone during the day while we work. After a trainer gave advice for really small food scatters, he actually enjoys being in our large, fenced yard. Our fence is 5 feet, and I'm not sure lower would contain him unsupervised. He was anxious and scared when we first got him home, so it would have been an issue then. - He is startled by sudden movements and loud noises but has made improvements with them as well. I'm not sure if it is lack of socialization or the shelter experience. He also seemed to have been hit hard on his snout or in the face, because he would duck and close his eyes when we'd reach to rub his head at first. He has gotten much better about it now. He still will duck and run from strange objects or sudden movements. I worked on desensitizing him to an umbrella yesterday. - He likes to play really hard, so small dogs and small children are probably not best for Scooby. - Scooby is way too interested in cats and we recommend no cats for the home he goes to. - He would jump on us at first and is much better with it as well. He will still try at times and also still loves to throw his paw. - Scooby would likely benefit from a large dog to play with, but we haven't tested him when other dogs yet. A neighbor had their small dog at the fence for a short time today. He did "downward dog," barked, and wagged his tail. - He pulls hard on a leash, but he does better on a no pull harness He is a sweet boy that is looking for a family to continue working with him on manners and would let him be the leaning lap dog he wants to be.
