Greetings Dane Lovers, I am so excited to introduce myself. I am a 4.5 year old female blue merle named Eleven. Yes, I said my name is Eleven. Now before you get to thinking my name is bizarre, let me explain. I was born 11/11/11. (That’s right, the 11th day of the 11th month of 2011.) What other name could possibly be more appropriate? Besides it keeps anyone from forgetting my birthday too. A girl’s gotta be thinking about the gifts and cake, right?!

To really understand how much my life has changed, I need to tell you a little about my past. I am an example of an impulse purchase where my mom didn’t consider the needs of a Great Dane. Once I got bigger, and the new wore off, I was jolted from my cushy life in the house with my family to living alone on a runner cable in the back yard. My goodness, that was a confusing shock. I was so alone in that yard. I wasn’t even around any other dogs. Imagine that! A dog that had never been around another dog to sniff, chase, or play with. 

Then suddenly my life took a turn for the better. The catalyst for that change was when my grandparents loaded me up in the car with my rescuers from NMSGDR. My transformation began at that moment. Even though I had not been in a house for a long time, I went right back to my excellent house manners. I am enamored with people. I love them all so very much. I simply bask in their love and attention. I am grateful for that love and attention, so I am sure to give back even more. I am one of those Danes that loves to hold down a couch so the aliens won’t steal it. At night a bed near my humans is all I need to be a perfectly happy girl.

I’m completely the opposite of the Dane I used to be. I no longer jump on people or get too excited when people give me attention. I relish attention, but my foster mom says I don’t demand it. Truth is, I know that now I’m going to get the attention I need!
I still have a couple of things I’m working on for my transformation into the perfect Dane to be complete. I don’t need a home with cats. Those darn things are just too tempting. My foster parents say that I have made the most progress in the shortest time of any Dane they have worked with so far. 

Why don’t you consider me for your family? I spent a long time alone and would love for a forever home and ready to be an awesome family dog. Who knows? Eleven may just be your lucky number!!

About North Mississippi Great Dane Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

It is our mission….

To assist Danes who, for whatever reason, find themselves without a family or home:

* in finding the love and stability that they had and have now lost, or may have never known before;
* in locating the perfect companion, who will in turn give to them as much affection, loyalty and support as the Dane will instinctively give;
* by giving those less fortunate Danes the positive reinforcement, teaching, and encouragement that they may need to overcome the life they may have once known;
* by providing the health services (including spay/neuter) to ensure the long, successful, healthy life of every Dane who come through NMSGDR; and
* by introducing the Dane to the public and providing the education and knowledge to create informed, healthy, lifetime adoptions.

We love our Danes and are honored to be loved by them. Our lives are truly bettered by them being in it.

As far as the process for adopting, you must fill out an application, and all references must be checked, and a home inspection conducted, for approval. Once approved, it's a matter of choosing a dog that is right for you. All of our Danes are fully vetted (including spay/neuter, shots, and microchip), as well as socialized, prior to adoption. Our adoption fees are as follows:
$375 puppies under 4 months; $325 4 months to 1 yr; $275 1-5yrs; $225 6+yrs; $175 mixes
