PLEASE NOTE! Unless stated otherwise, our dogs and puppies are located in Arkansas, and transported to the north/northeast once adopted. We do occasionally have dogs/puppies placed in foster homes in the north/northeast. In the cases where the pet is somewhere other than Arkansas, it will be noted beside the name of the pet.
1/18/17 Luke is a gorgeous 5 year old mantle Great Dane. He and his friend Daisy were rehomed privately about a year ago, but their current owner is no longer able to keep them due to her own health problems so she has asked AASR to help with finding them a good home. She loves them and wants only the best for them. Luke and Daisy are bonded, and we would love to see them stay together. But it's not necessarily a deal breaker. We feel that both dogs would do better in a new home if they are allowed to stay together. Daisy is also about 5 years old, and is a merle Great Dane. Luke and Daisy have done very well with their owner's grand babies (ages 3 and 2) in the home, but they do tend to get a little bit anxious when the kids are being really loud. Otherwise they are fine. They would probably do the best in a home with older children who are more calm, but we would consider a home with young children, depending on the child's personality/activity level, and the whole situation. Luke previously had some separation anxiety but has overcome that. He would get destructive if left alone in the home. But his owner crate trained him and he has done very well since then. However, the anxiety may resurface in a new environment, until he adjusts. So we would strongly recommend the use of a crate for him when unattended. Daisy does not use a crate and she does not seem to have any anxiety issues with being left alone. Luke and Daisy are both good with other dogs. Luke is good with cats, Daisy chases them but does not harm them. It is a game to her to see if she can catch them, but she has never hurt one. She is blind in one eye, due to an eye injury when she was a young puppy. They eye does not seem to bother her and the vet says there is nothing that needs to be done with it. Luke and Daisy are both neutered/spayed and up to date on shots. They are located in Arkansas and will be transported to the northeast once adopted.
