Special Needs Danes
These danes have come to us with special medical needs that make adoption an even bigger commitment. Each dog is different but will require extra care that often leads to additional medical bills.
Dwayne - Great Dane, 4 years old
We are looking for a very special foster, foster to adopt, or permanent home for Dwayne. He's a 4 year old w/Wobbler's syndrome. He has spent the past 2 months with a fabulous foster family and is an absolute sweetheart with an enviable Zen attitude toward all things. He loves belly rubs, baked sweet potato, and bird-watching. Wobbler's causes compression of the spine, which creates mobility issues, but these weeks of healthy diet, increased exercise, and a range of therapies have helped him regain significant self-sufficiency and energy. Those gains have also led to a personality conflict with one of the cats in the family. Dwayne has lived with cats in the past and doesn't seem to have issues with one of them at his current foster so I don't believe he has to have a cat free home. He does require a home where he won't have to use stairs. He wears a Help Em Up harness with handles and needs help moving around. Dwayne has made such progress in these past two months that we hope he can continue but it does require someone with a lot of patience. He'll repay you with such love!
