Type: Great Dane
House Trained: Yes
Her name is Charlotte and her story is heartbreaking. They know our rescue and trusted us to make sure she gets healthy and placed with a loving family. It is obvious that Charlotte was a breeder dog that outlived her usefulness and was literally discarded like trash on the side of the road. She has all of the telltale signs, mammary tumors, patches of hair missing from the back of her legs from living in a crate or concrete kennel all her life, having litter after litter of puppies. The shelter spayed her and removed some of the tumors (with clean margins) and she will have to heal before the others can be removed. She is terrified of humans and has never experienced anything outside of the breeding facility, most likely. I brought her home on Saturday and by evening, she allowed me to handle her and would come to me for attention and treats. She is learning to go outside with the rest of the pack. She has no idea how to be a dog and steers clear of the others for now. She has to have a towel wrap on to keep her from chewing her sutures, the cones cause her too much anxiety. She is sweet and even after all she has been through, she still wags her tail for me. She will be with me until such time as she is healthy, well adjusted and ready to meet the world. She will need additional surgery and veterinary care, but for now she is free to roam the kitchen and dog room (no more crates) and decompress as long as she needs to.
Looking forward to being part of your family :)
