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!!
