Friday's Friend! Dog Adoption, Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue League

Great Dane Adoption

My friend the "Great Dane Dame" of Virginia and probably other places too, has had her hands full taking care of a few of those pawsomely large Great Dane guys! When I first met one, my first thought was... "Oh. What. A. Big. Dog. There are other dogs bigger than me. arf." I thought I'd met all the dog breeds, but that a great first experience meeting him.

This week the "Great Dane Dame" brought by a huge handsome fella named "Titan" who is looking for humans to love and his "Forever Home!"

Titan is a young man full of energy to burn and lovin's to share!  Though he may take a few minutes to warm up to you, if he doesn't know you, barkingly, when he does, it's "game on" and you'll get tons of "doggie kisses!"  The bestest kind of slobber!  WOOF! He has fallen in love with humans he sees often including a mini-human! Barkingly, she gives him a lot of treats- which he takes quickly!  Paws, no signs of Titan being too rough, anxious or guarded with mini-humans.

Barks, he does have manners, but he is still a puppy at heart!  He knows a few basic commands, "sit," "shake a paw," and "down." Barkingly, he is very food motivated! He may guard his food when eating!

Titan passed the dog test with flying colors! He is a fast and fun, maybe a little rough, player. Barkingly, he was pawfect when playing with a Labrador, a Golden, and even larger dogs. Bark- there are dogs larger than a Great Dane? arf? 

Titan's previous owners say he is an escape artist who knows what door handles are for! While his foster hasn't seen this, he will require a sturdy 6 foot fence!

As Titan is still a puppy a training requirement will be part of his adoption to ensure he continues to learn good manners.

Titan would do best going home with another dog his size who is able to play fairly rough like he
does will a good choice for him.  With his energy levels, he needs a good-sized yard to run some of it off.  A townhouse, condo or apartment are not an option for him.

Titan likes to chase cats, so he is not recommended with cats.  He's good with mini-humans ages 12 and older.
