Facts about Melanie

  • Breed: Great Dane
  • Color: Black
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: X-Large 101 lbs (46 kg) or more
  • Sex: Female
Hi there! I'm Melanie! I'm a black beauty who is just as sweet as pie. I love to lean on my favorite people--and I lean HARD! I just want to be close. My favorite toy is a red ladybug--she sets off my shiny sleek black coat to perfection! I take very good care of her and love to lay on her to make sure she's warm and snuggly.

I was living with a family, but when they didn't want me any more, they returned me to my breeder. She gave me to a puppy mill, but I didn't breed quickly enough so I went back to her. Now I'm in a nice foster home, living the good life while I wait for my forever family to find me.

I'm housetrained, spayed and up to date on vaccines. I would prefer a home without small children or small dogs. I am good with large male dogs. I haven't been cat tested yet.

About Peaceful Paws Giant Dog Placement Services

About Our Rescue Group...

Peaceful Paws Giant Dog Placement Services provides rescue, rehabilitation and placement of giant breed dogs in the area of PA, DE, MD and NJ.

At this time, we are focusing only on English Mastiffs, Great Danes Scottish Deerhounds and Irish Wolfhounds.

As part of the core focus, educating the public about the appropriate way to interact with and care for giant breed dogs as well as providing information about giant dog breeds is key to decreasing the need for rescue in the future.

Peaceful Paws is an all volunteer rescue organization with seasoned volunteers and foster homes who have been involved in giant breed rescue for multiple years. Volunteers volunteer not only their time but also their resources and expertise.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our rescue dogs are housed in loving foster homes throughout the areas we serve. If you're interested in meeting one of our fosters, send us an email and we can chat about possible matches!

Our Adoption Process...

Peaceful Paws has a simple adoption process, explained below.

First, You Should Know

1. Peaceful Paws does not adopt to families with children under 10 years of age.
2. We rarely have puppies under 9 months of age in rescue. It happens occasionally but it is rare.
3. We do not adopt to renters unless there are special circumstances.
4. We rarely have dogs who are highly social with people AND dogs AND cats.

Now, onto the process...
1. Complete an application to adopt online at www.peacefulpawsrescue.org or email info@peacefulpawsrescue.org to have an application mailed to you.

2. A volunteer will call you to talk to you about your expectations and explain how the adoption process works.

3. Should both of you wish to proceed, we'll either arrange to visit your home first or we'll arrange for you to visit a dog that matches your family.

4. Then we'll switch that around, and either you'll visit a dog that matches your family or we'll arrange for a dog to visit your home.

During this time, we're available to answer any questions you may have.

Adoption Donation
--------------------------
Peaceful Paws asks for a donation at the time of adoption to help defray the many expenses of running a rescue, including administrative, medical, behavioral, general and emergency costs. In return, we make sure the dog is spayed or neutered, heartworm tested, up to date on vaccinations and given a clean bill of health (or disclose any known issues). On average, we spend $350 or more on a dog in our program.

6 months or younger - $400
6 months to 6 years of age - $350
over 6 years of age - $250
