Purebred Dane Siblings, Duke and Duchess, Need Homes!


Duke and Duchess are two purebred Great Danes that need homes immediately! They are too large for our Main Kennel and are currently being housed in our incoming building where they have more space.

Duke (handsome man on the left) is 4 years old and weighs just over 130 pounds. He is of the black mantle coloration. He is super friendly with all of the staff members. Duke is quite a handful because of his size and would certainly need an owner experienced in handling large dogs.

His sister, Duchess (pretty girl on the right), is also 4 years old and a little smaller at just over 110 pounds. She is of the harlequin coloration, meaning she is mainly white with black spots. Duchess is also very friendly. She is a little easier to walk on a leash and pulls a lot less than her big brother. We would still prefer someone with experience with larger dogs, but she is more manageable than Duke.

They are both very friendly and energetic. They love interacting with people and would probably do fine with other dogs, but we always do “meet and greets” with our animals regardless. Both Duke and Duchess have been together since they were puppies. We would love for them to be adopted to the same household.



Jasper is a very energetic 7 year old Boxer. He has been very friendly with all of our staff and volunteers. Because of his size and energy level we probably wouldn’t suggest small children, but feel free to bring them out to meet him. He does fine with other dogs and we are unsure about cats.

Kit Kit1

My name is Kit Kit.  I am a sweet 6 1/2 year old boy; I enjoy being brushed or petted, but I am a little shy.  I would probably do best in a home with no small children or dogs. I am neutered and microchipped, and current with my shots.
