Rescue Me ID: 17-05-21-00245Moon (male)

Great Dane Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Heartworm Positive 

    Moon ~Courtesy Posting~'s Story... Moon is a 6 or 7 year old neutered male (small Great Dane/American Bull mix) that was found wandering the sidewalks in a neighborhood in Wake Forest, NC. He was in bad shape and had clearly been out on his own for some time. Unfortunately, he was not chipped and no one has come forward to claim him despite numerous postings. A vet exam revealed heart worms, a heart murmur, ring worms, hook worms, an eye infection, and that his 60 lb. frame was about 20 pounds underweight. A good bath, a vet visit and lots of medications, meals, and love later, and he is now well on his way to recovery and we are looking ... (Read More)for his perfect family! He is an extremely smart, gentle and calm dog that is awesome with kids (he's been around tons of kids 8 and up since we found him) and is also good with other dogs. But what he really wants is to be with his person. He is extremely loyal and has learned some basic commands very quickly! He clearly wants to please his people!! He is good on a leash, loves to go for walks, and enjoys riding in the car. He also loves dog toys - especially tennis balls and toys where he can find and destroy the squeaker! He appears to be house trained - he has had no issues; and sleeps all night next to the bed on his dog bed. We have not been crating him and have had no issues with him when we leave him alone in the house. I work from home and he is generally very calm, spending most of the day laying by my feet as I work. I have only heard him bark once in almost 3 weeks despite all the noise and commotion with ongoing construction in our house! He is not, however, great with cats. We know he will be an awesome dog for just the right person or family! We are looking for someone with room in their home and heart for this great dog who loves to cuddle, to have his belly-rubbed, and just to be with his people. If you are that person - please consider adopting Moon! (Less)

Great Dane    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Very High Energy 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Abused/Neglected, Fearful/Anxious 

    I took Dixie out of a bad situation in Va. Howeber, I underestimated my ability to handle her in combination with my other Great Dane and 4 children. I think she has tons of potential, but I simply don't have the time and resources.

Rescue Me ID: 17-04-23-00153Tansy (female)

Great Dane Mix    Age: Young Adult

    Tansy was turned into a shelter...we must get a FOSTER to save her....she is a brilliant, sharp, loving 3 year old dog! She loves cuddling, and playing with her toys. She knows basic commands like sit, stay, lay down, paw (she will switch paws if you ask her to) , she also does high fives. She will sit on her butt and put both paws in the air for you! She loves to run around and play, and loves her toys ! She is good with the leash. If she gets out she is not the best at the command come, I guess she feels free so it takes her a few minutes . She is GREAT with kids , but a little reluctant to meet new adults it takes her time to get used to ... (Read More)you . Then she is your best friend ! She is good with cats but wants to play a lot so she chases them but hasn't hurt mine. She would do really well with another dog friend! We leave her in the house during the workday, and she doesn't destroy stuff, she is well behaved and fully potty trained ! She is being returned to the rescue as she escapes through their front door when given the chance, and can jump their 6' fence. The family feels they also do not have time for her. (Less)

Great Dane    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Neutered 

    Jasper is a playful, happy and friendly 18 month old Great Dane. Our son has allergies and we can no longer have Jasper in the house because our son has become very allergic to him. Jasper is very high energy but will also lay next to you on the couch and sleep for hours.(He is a Dane after all) Jasper loves to play in the water and needs someone that will wrestle with him, throw a ball, run with him and then cuddle up for a nap, he will sit on your lap if you let him! He's very nurturing when someone is sick, great guard dog but still friendly to strangers & friends. He likes to play rough but is not aggresive toward people or animals in ... (Read More)general. He likes to greet with a jump so he does well on a Halti for introductions and on walks. Jasper is house broken, he is a good listener, a smart boy and will do well with continued training. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Great Dane in North Carolina
    Great Dane Dogs can make good pets in North Carolina if they match your IifestyIe. The Great Dane is an enormous, but extremely gentle breed often referred to as the Gentle Giant. Great Danes are kind, loyal, and sociable. They need to be around people. Great Danes are gentle, devoted, and wonderful with children, but should be supervised with little ones because of their large size. Great Danes should be well trained as puppies. Great Danes can live in an apartment with enough daily exercise but do best with a large yard.
