Forever Friends Great Dane Rescue is looking for a furever family for this amazing Dane!

Colton is a sweet, older Dane with great manners. He is not crate trained, but can be trusted loose in the house. Colton is what's known as a "dry mouth" Great Dane so he doesn't drool or slobber. He doesn't get on furniture or counters and does not jump. Colton previously lived with a dog and cats. He loves people of all ages, from babies to grandparents.

Colton is heartworm positive and will need to be given heartworm pills monthly to manage it for the rest of his life. Colton also has a case of dilated cardiomyopathy that is mild enough to give him a good quality of life. However, he does take two heart medications daily and will need periodic monitoring of his condition. Colton is completely potty trained but is currently struggling with fecal incontinence.

Colton is 145 pounds of quiet, gentle love just waiting for the perfect family.

About Forever Friends Great Dane Rescue - Illinois

About Our Rescue Group...

Forever Friends Great Dane Rescue (FFGDR) was founded by a small group of people dedicated to the great dane breed. Our goal is to help neglected, abandoned, and abused great danes find their forever homes while educating the public. We believe that every animal deserves a forever family to love them unconditionally for the rest of their lives.

We are a small start up group with many years of experience with great danes and rescue. Our collective experience with Dane rescue will allow us to continue our desire to make an impact on the lives of the great danes we can take in and help. Currently, we accept surrenders from families and shelters and adopt to forever homes in the states of Illinois, Indiana, Missouri and, parts of Wisconsin. With the help of our supporters, we hope to eventually grow our group, spread our message, and rescue great danes.

FFGDR specializes in great danes. We accept great danes of all ages and from all types of situations. We are not a shelter, our dogs live in foster homes as part of a family until their medical and emotional needs have been met and they are ready for their forever homes.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We host meet and greets or booths every weekend at stores such as Pet Supplies Plus, the Indy Pet Expo, and Moochie and Co. Our schedule is updated every month on our website and on our Facebook group page.

Our Adoption Process...

We require everyone to complete an adoption application and submit a $25 application fee. Once we review the application and find it to be complete, we will call their references. They must submit 3 personal references and their veterinary reference. If they pass the reference check, we will then set up a home check with them. Once the home check is complete, they then get a phone call from the adoption coordinator to speak about a dog or two that we have in mind for them. If all is acceptable, they get to speak with the foster home at that point and schedule a time to adopt.
