*Since its incorporation in 1998, Southwest Florida Great Dane Rescue has placed over 500 Danes in new homes. Our rescue is staffed by volunteers that are dedicated to finding loving homes for these gentle giants .
We are looking for permanent, loving homes that will last these rescued Great Danes a lifetime.
Adoptive owners should be willing to provide appropriate food, medical care and a loving, healthy environment for their adopted Great Dane.
WE ARE CURRENTLY FULL AND IN DESPERATE NEED OF FOSTERS
Great Danes should be kept as house pets in close companionship with their families; they should never be allowed to run loose or left outdoors unsupervised. All dogs are spayed or neutered before they leave us.
Most Danes come into rescue at 18 months of age because they are no longer cute puppies; they are large dogs, expensive to maintain and need more training and attention than many people are prepared to give. It is important to realize that most Danes are not couch potatoes and need more than a walk around the block twice a day.
Great Danes are active, fun-loving dogs that make great companions! Although they are large dogs, their average lifespan is from 8 to 12 years of age. The leading causes of death in Great Danes are heart problems, bloat and cancer. Predominately white Danes are typically deaf and may have eye anomalies including blindness. Potential adopters should be alert to these health problems and the increased costs of medical treatment for dogs the size of Great Danes.
