About Luna

This is Luna's foster, Meg, speaking for her because she's too shy to tell you about herself. Luna is 17 mths old and recently Spayed. She is a very petite Dane, weighing in at only 85 lbs.


Luna was surrendered because she attacked and badly injured a very small dog the owners also had in the home, but since coming into rescue, we have seen no evidence of dog aggression. I let her out to play with the dogs who are around her size, like labs and retrievers and she does great and loves running and playing with them. So we think a home with another friendly, medium to large dog would be perfect for her.


Luna's biggest issue is fear and trusting. We don't really know how she was treated in her previous home, but she was extremely scared once her owner left our farm and would not let me get close enough to touch her for a couple of weeks. I could let her out, let her back in and she'd run to her kennel and stay there. 


HOWEVER, once I gained her trust (hot dogs are a wonderful thing) and she would take treats and food out of my hand, we progressed quickly and I can say without a doubt, she is the sweetest dog I've ever met. She may never be a real cuddle bunny, but she is so happy for kind words and a few pets. Her most prized position is a squeaky rubber bird she brought with her and she will carry it around all day. 


Luna will need a very special forever home who will be patient above all else. As she is in a boarding kennel situation now (albeit having free run of the place), I think being in a home with another dog that she can see is being petted, loved and treated well will do her a world of good and probably won't take as long as she did to warm up to me.  But, she does deserve a home and I hope someone will consider her.

**NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR IVAN** Meet Ivan! Ivan is a 2.5 year old Great Dane who absolutely loves life. He is a social butterfly who loves going out on whatever the adventure of the day is - be it a walk around the neighborhood or exploring somewhere new. While he enjoys the company of his foster siblings (other great danes and a pit bull), his true love in this world is people. In true Dane fashion, he is extremely people-oriented and thrives on human interaction. Every person has been put on Earth to give him attention (so he says)! In his previous home he grew up around 5 children and loved them very much, though he did knock them over by accident sometimes. Typical to the breed, Ivan does have a stubborn streak in him and will need a home that can set boundaries. He thinks that you should share your food with him, that he can run out the door if it opens, and that telling him to "sit" is optional sometimes. Though he may lack in those departments, he excels in so many others. His house training is top notch. Even though he came into foster care intact, even though he was on prednisone, even though he was in a new place, there was never one accident. To date Ivan has not had a single accident in his foster home. He goes to the door and paws it to let you know he needs to potty. He is also crate trained and will run in right on command. If left open you'll often find him sleeping in it. Ivan's personality is second to none - he is the happiest, silliest dog you'll meet. He doesn't have a serious bone in his body and thinks that everything is the best game ever. Not a day will go by without him making you laugh, whether it's his excited hops on a walk or when he's laying across your ottoman 100% totally "fitting". Ivan is the type of dog who will bond with you and be your dog for life. He loves his family hard, and will give you his heart and soul forever. show less
