Rescue Me ID: 15-10-25-00386Dexter (male)

Great Dane Mix    Age: Adult

Personality: Average Energy 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Let me tell you about Dexter....he had a field trip away from the kennels today and he is an amazing dog! First he rides perfectly in the car, a perfect gentleman. He needed some leash manners so I got him a gentle leader and he walked like a champ through 2 neighborhoods, a community yard sale and a car show, where he got loved all over. He adores families and children. ADORES them! He has hound in him but most definitely has some Shepherd and shows some traits of a Rhodesian ridgeback, He played with Beauty and one other dog and then napped in the sun and grass twice, watched clouds with my head on his back and didn't even flinch when dump ... (Read More)trucks, motorcycles or dogs on leashes walked by him. He doesn't need a huge yard. He needs a family! I brought him back to the kennels and he cried when I put him back. He is a perfect gentleman and companion. Come check him out! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-07-22-00432Howie (male)

Great Dane Mix    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Howie came to us heartworm positive and with a badly injured leg that had been caught up in the line that he had been tied up to all of his 3 years. He has since had a toe removed (he doesn't miss it) and has successfully completed his heartworm treatment. Howie is a big, 80 pound, goofy boy. We're not sure what breed(s) he is, other than mixed, but we think he's possibly a Great Dane/Pointer/Who Knows What. Howie is one of the most tolerant dogs we've ever met. He has let us do whatever needed to be done to help him without a single complaint. Because he was chained up and attacked by other dogs in his previous life, he doesn't quite know ... (Read More)what to make of other dogs, and may actually do best as an only dog. If you have a well-balanced dog, we would be happy to set up a meet and greet and see how they get along. He has been quite tolerant of all the comings and goings of the other dogs at our little shelter. Howie is a boy that wants very much to please his people. Though he has been an outdoor dog all his life, he has kept his new indoor shelter clean. He very much likes being an INDOOR dog, but will need some training to learn house rules. Howie loves to earn treats and he loves to hang out and just be near you. He is proving to be a very intelligent and easy to train boy. He loves learning new things playing fetch and swimming, but what Howie loves most is riding in cars! He is one very happy co-pilot, even if the trip is only to the vet. You can get to know this big, easy-going guy on his very own Facebook page: If you are interested in making Howie part of your family, you can find out more here: (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-03-06-00011Chauncey (male)

Great Dane Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Most Cats 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Chauncey does wonderful with small dogs, cats, and large female dogs. SOME large male dogs he dislikes. He is a large dog who still is very much puppy. He needs an active family. Chauncey loves children! He is shy of elderly men with beards (we don't know why), so we suggest a home within a couple hours so we can make sure Chauncey fits within your family. He has very unique requests and the best way to make him happy is to just give him a try. Chauncey is 85 lbs.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Great Dane in Virginia
    Great Dane Dogs can make good pets in Virginia 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.
