|Rescue Me ID: 16-10-03-00518Boz (male)|
The blue boy Great Dane named Boz was returned to me on 4/9/2016 at age 10 months old. Boz was placed with two men at 9 weeks old. The owners stated on 4/9/2016 that his 'aggression' had amped up over the past week and that there was nothing more they could do for him. When Boz was returned to me, he was growling and lunging on the leash. I put him in the crate in my kitchen and sat on the floor and talked to him for several hours. When he calmed down, I let him out of the crate and he came up and licked my hand. That was on day #1 of his return. Boz was returned to me in poor condition: he had an upper respiratory virus; he had a sinus infection; and he had a severe cherry eye that had developed while in the owner's care that was left untreated. Over the weeks of having Boz in our home, I realized that his cherry eye was so severe that he really couldn't see very well, if at all. It also became clear to me that Boz was not properly socialized by the first owner, and that he had been 'manhandled' by tugging and pulling him on the collar based on his behavior, e.g. he would crouch down and make himself small and pee on himself whenever I tried to grab his collar. Corrective cherry eye surgery was performed in late May 2016 by my vet. Considering the severity of his cherry eye, Dr. T did a very good job, albeit his eyes are not perfect. Boz is a sweet boy, very kind and gentle. But is afraid at the vet, e.g. I have to muzzle him and give him a valium beforehand, and he is still gun shy of the grabbing of the collar; I use a slip lead all-in-one and that doesn't scare him. Boz has come a long way in the 5 months I have had him and he's a really special boy. Boz is not aggressive. Not a mean bone in this boy's body. But he does have fear issues. Because of Boz's history (not being socialized as a baby and being manhandled), Boz needs continued socialization and Boz would benefit from obedience training classes. I hope that with time and positive visits to the vet that Boz can overcome his fear at the vet. (Less)

Rambo is going to be 2 years old in November and he hasn't had a great life so far. At 11 months old he was dumped at a high kill shelter in Texas, he was adopted, then shuffled around a bunch until he found a forever here in the Seattle area. 2 months later his mom unexpectedly died. This was in March. Her family wanted nothing to do with him, so I took him in. Because he can't be around cats, he has to stay in my basement. He gets plenty of exercise and love, but every night when I have to put him away, he cries at the door and wants to come upstairs. See, Rambo wants nothing more than to have his own human that he can sit on the couch with and chew on toys. He loves going for walks and inspecting the neighborhood. He also loves playing with my pittie girls in the backyard. Rambo needs someone who is strong mentally and physically and give him the training that he truly desperately craves. He wants to be good boy, he just has no idea what he's supposed to do to be one. I truly love this dog and wish I could keep him but I know that won't be possible with also having kitties in the house. He's not quite sure what to do with little dogs either. He is not toy aggressive but he does guard his food. Because of his sheer size and energy he should be in a home with kids. It's not that he's not good with them, he is just too strong for them. His mom who died had a male pit and they got along fine because Rambo got to be the dominant one. My pit girls didn't like him at all at first and now they both love him. I can't begin to explain what a special dog he is and what an awesome companion he could be for someone who could dedicated the time to him that he needs. (Less)

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