"URGENT - Young Dane suffering in heat"
being fostered in a home that has become smitten with him.
He acts like a puppy sometimes and makes his foster mom
laugh when she can tell he is just learning about
something. LOL. At two years, he should know more but he
was never taught. He is learning now and is responsive,
very smart, VERY attached to his foster mom, and plays very
well with the other 3 Danes in the house. He crates well,
walks on leash well, and is inquisitive about everything.
He is kind of a goofy, big-bodied baby. He is protective of
foster mom, like he knows she gave him a chance to live IN
the house and experience the 'good life'. Likewise, his
foster mom is very smitten with him and protective of him as
well. :-) She feels he will be best in a quiet home,
without little kids to clumsily run over, and will do well
without another dog if necessary simply because he can't get
enough of this new thing he has discovered - called "love
and attention". He will continue to need guidance and
teaching and promises to be a great student and devoted and
loyal companion dog to the right folks lucky enough to take
ROCKY. He is around 2 years of age, brought home because he was a cute puppy, and immediately put outside in the roasting heat with no shelter and sometimes no water or food. He was never allowed to go inside the house and has lived his two years in this small back yard. He was living with another dog for awhile until she was rescued and thankfully taken away to a new home. Sad for him though.
Rocky seems friendly to dogs and people walking up to his fence, and loves the neighbors who have seen to it that he gets food, water and a small tarp to give him a little shade from the scorching sun. His owner is willing to give him up because he now is too big to care for anymore. He doesn't seem to have been taught anything but he also doesn't seem very obnoxious about anything. All dogs can learn from humans that care.
At this time our rescue is severely short on money and foster homes, so we are trying to locate a new home by referring interested parties to his wonderful neighbors who know him, and without whom he might have died of heat exposure. They will help to get him into a proper home to be loved. Please consider this dog's plight as an emergency and help us to get him to a safe and caring place that he has deserved from the day he was born.
