Duke 2

Cats: Not good with cats
Dogs: Good with other dogs
Children: 12+ years old

Update 1/19/20 - Duke is a big energetic fawn boy who has made so much progress since the day he came into rescue. Everything about him is big. He has a big head, and big voice which he is not afraid to use, and he has a super big heart. Duke is very alert and aware of everyone and everything around him. He is very curious and sometimes unsure, so he needs consistent guidance and reassurance when encountering new things. He is inquisitive and needs a strong leader. Duke does best with a consistent predictable routine and schedule; we feel like he could do well in many situations but a quiet environment with not much going on would be best. He has lived with other dogs and we have successfully introduced him to balanced dogs. Dogs with poor social skills may take a bit longer to introduce. Duke learns quickly and is extremely food motivated so getting him to learn your routine should be fairly simple. One thing that he needs some work with is his barrier frustration as he can be very vocal and exuberant. Duke is very affectionate, especially when he has gotten to know you so he would be a great couch companion when you are home winding down from a long day.

Added 10/2019

Duke is a 3 year old fawn mail with natural ears. Duke is a large and very energetic boy who has a lot to say, and with his booming voice, he shakes the walls! He has lots of energy and needs an outlet to burn off that energy. Duke needs training and a training contract will be required to make sure he gets a good start in his new home. He has lots of excitement when meeting new people as he tends to jump and bounce with excitement. Even though this can appear intimidating, he is not aggressive. He has not met any dogs while in rescue yet as we need to get some of his excitement under control. He did live with a dachshund and a female Dane in his previous home. He cannot be placed with cats. He has lived with kids of all ages, the youngest being 5 years of age. We suggest due to his exuberance no children under the age of 12+. Duke will require an experienced and strong owner to give him guidance and structure. This boy is a real diamond in the ruff. In the right home he will flourish. Do you have that home? Duke came to MAGDRL in October 2019. (2)

Little Boy Blue

Cats: Good with cats
Dogs: Good with dogs
Children: 9+ years old

Update 4/28/19 - After two weeks Blue is starting to show us his love of life playful side. Blue likes walks in the park, fetching a ball for a little time then he lets you throw it, and lay down for those belly rubs. There isn't a dog that he has met that he hasn't liked. He will be neutered on May 8th, and then will be ready for his forever home. Do you have room for a true dane who would love a home to call his own?

Added 4/2019: Little Boy Blue is a 2 year old black male with natural ears who came to rescue from a shelter. Don't let his name fool you, there is nothing little about this boy! He is around 150 pounds, and is house trained and crate trained. Blue is slow to warm up to strangers, however if you give him time and let him feel comfortable with you, he will be yours for ever. Blue loves to give kisses and get belly rubs. He loves car rids and walks. He is good with other dogs and cats, however he is not comfortable with children under 8 years of age. Blue is looking for a family to provide him a stable, consistent and loving home. Might your home be that home? Little Boy Blue came to MAGDRL in April 2019. (2)

Jada

Cats: Unknown with cats
Dogs: Unknown with dogs
Children: Unknown with children

Jaida is a Rescue In Need and is currently not available for adoption.

Update 4/28/19 - Jaida is growing quickly, and is surprising everyone with her recovery. Jaida loves meeting people and other dogs. Her physical therapy is going well and her veterinarians feel that she can, while in the house, go without the Medi Paw brace; however when she is around other dogs she needs it as the reminder that it gives her about where to place her seems to really help.

Update 3/23/19 - Jaida is doing very well in her foster home. She is playful, active and has a ravenous appetite. She is doing physical therapy both at home and the vet's office. Jaida continues to knuckle her hind right paw and now wears a Medi Paw boot to protect her foot. She is currently off medication, however, she is receiving glucosamine supplements. She no longer shows signs of pneumonia. We are optimistic that this has been resolved. Her right hind limb appears to be improving. She will need to continue rehabilitation and care to maximize function in this limb. When she is walking we need to help her to go slowly to be able to place her paw with every step. She will need to remain with the Medi Paw boot to prevent farther damage to her skin. We are beginning to socialize her with other dogs and people to prevent behavioral issues in the future.

Added 2/19 - Meet Jaida. She came to us in early February and has found herself hospitalized and fighting for her life. It is unclear what has happened to her, but it is clear that we have to help her. She is just 9 weeks old and currently in great distress due to multiple health issues. She has fought through fevers, pneumonia, and low blood count but an infection in her hip and leg could potentially cause her to lose that leg. She has been hospitalized in the ICU on IV antibiotics and oxygen for several days now, and the vet staff have been working tirelessly to resolve all her health concerns. She had one surgery to drain the abscess and infection in her leg, she may need more. Progress has been slow. Jaida is extremely adorable and even though she has had good days and not so great days; she has shown that she is a fighter. We are doing all that we can to provide her with the care that she needs. Jaida came to MAGDRL in February 2019. (2)

Diamond

Cats: Good with cats
Dogs: Good with other dogs
Children: Unknown with children

Diamond is current on medical hold and is not currently available for adoption

Update 12/16/18 - Unfortunately Diamond is heart worm positive, so she is now on medical hold until she can be treated.

Diamond is a 7 1/2 year old mantle female with natural ears. Unfortunately just as Diamond came into rescue, she came into heat, so she will be on hold until she can be spayed. Diamond is just that… a perfect Diamond! She loves having her belly rubbed and her ears scratched. She could snuggle for hours, laying her head on your lap. Diamond is good with other dogs, and has been fine with the cats in her foster home. She is unknown with children. Diamond would love a nice, quiet home where she could be a couch potato. Diamond came to MAGDRL in October 2018. (2)

Benson

Cats: Unknown with cats
Dogs: Good with large dogs
Children: Unknown with children

Benson is a 2 1/2 year old black male with natural ears. Yup, that is me looking out of the rear deck window of my new foster home. I'm a pretty handsome guy, right? So, here is a little information about me. First, my good traits. I am very curious about everything and I need to know what is going on all around me at all times. I will definitely let you know if there is someone in your yard or coming into your house. I am very faithful, and want to be with you all the time. I am really good looking, intelligent and an affectionate guy. When you sit down, I love to come over and put my head on your arm or your shoulder or sit on your lap. I love to play, but when it is bedtime, I want to be close to you and snuggle. I love to go places, love to be walked, and am good at both. I get along very well with my foster brothers and sister, two senior Danes and a Pit Bull. I play well with others, but I can get very excitable at times and just need a little reminder when I go over the top. I will cease my behavior when asked. I love to be praised and am thrilled when I am told I am a good boy. Now for other things that I need work on. I love to 'counter surf'. I will put my front paws up on the counter and scout for whatever goodies that you left for me. I have some separation anxiety, I hate being left alone. I walk into the crate when you take me there before you leave, however, I try to escape when you are gone. I also like to bark when I am left in the crate. However, I will stop barking when told "no bark". I am trying to learn to relax when I am in the crate. Having company on the outside of the crate sure does help and is comforting. My older foster Dane brother presently stays with me, so it is bearable. I do need to be reminded not to bark at times though. So, if you would like to have a very handsome, intelligent, faithful Dane, then I'm the dog for you. Benson came to MAGDRL in March 2019. (2)

Anibus

Cats: Good with cats
Dogs: Good with other dogs
Children: Good with children

Anibus is currently on medical hold and not available for adoption.

Anibus is a 5 year old black male with natural ears who came to MAGDRL from a private rescuer. Unfortunately he is heartworm positive as well some other health issues. He will not be available for 4-6 months while he is going through treatment. Anibus is excellent with his humans; he loves snuggles and is a typical Dane leaner. We had originally been told that he is dog selective, however in his foster home his foster mom states that her biggest challenge is to keep him from trying to play with her pack. He is disinterested in the cats and the pot belly pig in the home. He is a very sweet boy who really wants to be with everyone. Anibus came to MAGDRL in December 2017. (2)

Patches

Cats: Good with cats
Dogs: Good with other dogs
Children: Good with children

Patches is currently on medical hold and not available for adoption.

Patches is a 4 year petite merle with natural ears who came into rescue via a shelter because her owner has health issues. She is a true Velcro Dane - loves to be with her humans. She is good in the car. Patches loves long walks however she pulls and needs to be reminded to heel. Her only real flaw is she is a gate opener so you will need to make sure your gate is locked. Patches gets along well with other dogs, and has lived with cats. She has also lived with children of all ages. Unfortunately Patches picked up an upper respiratory infection while at the shelter, so she will not be available for adoption until she is over that. Patches came to MAGDRL in September 2017. (2)

Cleo

Cats: Good with cats
Dogs: Good with other dogs
Children: 6+ years old

Cleo is a 14 month old black female with natural ears who came to us from a private rescuer.  Unfortunately Cleo is heartworm positive, so she will not be available for adoption for a minimum of 2-3 months. Cleo is good with cats and has lived with other dogs and birds and is great with both. She has also lived with children 6 years old and older. She is a sweet girl who loves any people she meets, loves to lean on people, and loves to snuggle. She has very little in the way of manner, which her foster home will be working on.

Bella

Cats: Not good with cats
Dogs: Good with large dogs with slow introductions
Children: Not good with children

Update 7/22/18 - Bella has been doing very well in her foster home and is looking for her forever home. We are all so excited as she has recently been cat tested with multiple cats and we can safely say that she is able to live with cats. When she shows interest in a cat, as soon as the cat raises their back, she runs back to her human.

Update 12/03/17 - Bella has been with her foster home for several months. In that time she has settled and become very comfortable with me and less reactive in situations that are new to her. She is very responsive to voice commands and the leash. She likes other dogs and can get along with them if they are properly (slowly) introduced. It seems that she prefers human companionship over animals. She has learned to walk on the leash beautifully. Bella is very puppy like in that she loves to play, chase balls (chase anything) and is very excitable in unstructured situations. She thrives in an environment that doesn't have a lot going on and isn't around a lot of people, animals, noise, etc. She seems to do better that way. She gets about a mile walk in most days but could certainly do more. She has a pretty strong prey drive and tends to want to chase most things that are fast moving. Once she has bonded with you, she looks to you often for guidance as she need to learn what is ok and not ok in different situations. She has a big appetite and is very treat/food motivated. She is smart, affectionate, and attentive. I cannot emphasize enough how a consistent routine has benefitted this girl. Bella just needs an experienced human to give her the guidance, the structure and the love that she needs.

Update 10/6/17 - Bella has been doing well in her foster home. She is affectionate and seems to prefer humans over other dogs. Bella has demonstrated a pretty high prey drive and impulsively will chase anything that moves quickly. We have lots of deer and squirrels and chipmunks around and she becomes hyper focused on them. She is very puppy like, playful and impulsive... did I mention that she is impulsive? The good news is that she responds well to correction and redirection. A quiet, calm environment will not much going on would be best for Bella. She is comforted very much by her routine. She continues to walk nice on the leash. With new people and other dogs, Bella does best with slow and proper introductions. Bella can be selective with other dogs, but with the right one it looks like she will get along. It has to be a calm and stable dog. She reacts to humans who give prolonged eye contact and who are nervous around her, and she gives the same reaction with other dogs. She is playful and doesn't generally go looking for trouble but tends to not back down if another dog comes at her.

Bella is a sweet 19 month old harlequin female with natural ears. She is a very energetic puppy who will require guidance, routine and reinforcement. Bella responds very well to redirection and is somewhat treat motivated. The combination of clear and consistent direction along with a predictable routine has put her at ease. She meets strangers with wags of her tail. Bella does react to high energy dogs so you have to be careful and slow when introducing her to other dogs. Bella has a high prey drive and has been overly excited by fast moving things including children. She is excitable and exuberant and sometimes growls and lunges when excited to meet other dogs. Her behavior can be misinterpreted by humans and other dogs. Bella doesn't like being along for too long and will bark in protest. She has made a lot of progress walking on leash. She loves to play fetch and knows basic commands; sit, stay, walk, down, and paw. She will come when called but not consistently. There will be a training contract attached to her adoption. Bella came to MAGDRL in August 2017. (2)

 

Tank

Tank

Cats: Good with cats
Dogs: Good with other dogs
Children: Good with children

Tank is currently on medical hold.

Tank is a 2 year old mantle male with natural ears. He came to rescue because his family could not afford to care for him. Tank will be a perfect addition to any house and family. He gets along with everything. Tank was kept in a crate for to many hours during the day and as a result he is underweight, has poor coat quality, has crate and surface bruising on extremities, and is covered in urine burns. To add to his poor condition Tank was infested with fleas and very anemic. He has happy tail and is awaiting surgery to correct this. Until Tank's blood levels improve he can not get his tail docked or repaired and he will not get neutered. Despite all the neglect that Tank has gone thru in the past two years, he is very happy and just wants to snuggle with his two new canine foster sisters. Tank has been left perfect gentleman. He is clever enough to remove his tail bandages so he must be watched closely until he has his surgery. Tank came to MAGDRL in April 2017. (2)
