Rescue Dog

Tonight we are getting a 6 y/o male blue merle Great Dane from our local Great Dane Rescue. Jasmin has been so lonely that we think getting her a companion would help her with the grief. His name is Moose and he is very sweet, we have spent 2 days this week letting Jasmin get to know him at the rescue and have decided to foster him starting tonight. He is a big drooler but that is about his only fault. If they continue to get along well then we will adopt him permantly.
Dane was a humane society dog & we feel strongly about getting a rescue pet.
If you have never owned a Great Dane let me tell you that they are the most enjoyable pets that I have owned, of course you will have to get used to the fact that they will sit their butts on the sofa and step on all of your toes many many times. These big dogs do not want to be outside without you-don't think just because they are big that they need lots of room....they don't....they want to be under your feet at all times!
I will post pictures over the weekend of Jasmin & her new partner "Moose".

That sounds great, so glad you guys are doing that...can't wait to hear all about Jasmin and Moose's adventures together...

P.S. Freckles is a "rescued" dog too, we got him from animal control (can you believe it?? a cocker spaniel???)...always our dogs are from animal control or the humane society...

Don't let my DH see this, he loves GD's and always wanted one.
We have a rescued dog too... Salty Dog.
