  • Size: X-Large 101 lbs (46 kg) or more
  • Sex: Female
Rabbit is a 2 year old harlequin vision impaired female with natural ears who came to rescue after fighting with other dogs in her home. Update 1/27/16 - Rabbit has been in a foster home for about 5 months, and house living suits her just fine! Some of Rabbit’s favorite comforts in life are curling up on the couch, running for an ice cube when she hears the ice dispenser, spending hours stretched out in the sun, dragging her blanket around with her, and playing with 1 (or 3) of her squeak toys. She will still have the occasional housebreaking accident, but those are few and far between. Obedience training is easy with Rabbit. She is motivated by food and even more by praise. Rabbit loves her foster mom and dad, but that was hard-earned trust. Rabbit is fearful of strangers and responds with barking and growling. Left unguarded and without steady reassurance, she will try to nip to warn people out of her space, but she’s working to overcome her jitters because she’s a lover at heart. Her foster mom and dad can give her big bear hugs, play with her ears, clip her nails, and bathe her with no signs of aggression. Rabbit wants a forever home that understands life started rough and that she needs lots of patience and someone to help her keep building her confidence. She’d do best in a home that doesn’t have a ton of visitors and that doesn’t travel too much. There are no children in her foster home, but Rabbit does have quite the kid’s fan club in the neighborhood and is not fearful of that size human. She seeks attention from the kids even when they approach on bikes or with flapping mittens. Rabbit has been getting along great from day one with the dog in her foster home. They both enjoy vigorous wrestling matches. Rabbits also loves going to the dog park to burn off energy and gets along well with her doggie friends there. She’d probably do best in a home with a dog buddy because Rabbit has occasional separation anxiety. She does great without being crated while mom and dad are at work, but occasionally if she’s left in the evening, she will chew up off-limits items. Crating has not been the solution for her anxiety because she gets anxious in the crate. Rabbit thrives on routine and does best when her foster home is having a quiet week that she can predict. Overall, Rabbit has a heart of gold but needs a patient owner to help her reveal it. She genuinely wants to please people and make friends. Given time, she’s a tail-wagging, goofy, energetic (in bursts) dog. She’ll follow “her” people around like a shadow and take every belly rub and “good girl” she can get.

About Our Rescue Group...

The Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue League, Inc. (MAGDRL) was organized in 1979 to serve the seven states of the Mid-Atlantic region. It now covers NY, NJ, PA, MD, DE, VA, DC, and WV.

The organization is a DC corporation and has a charitable tax-exemption under code 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

MAGDRL is staffed completely by volunteers. Therefore, 100% of the funds donated to our organization goes to helping our Great Danes.

We do not have a central location. Our dogs live in the homes of volunteers who have offered to be foster families for our dogs.
