Brutus's Story...
This stunning fawn boy is Brutus! He is a 6 1/2 year old (DOB 3/20/05) Great Dane with cropped and standing ears. Brutus is quite a special boy, but is a delight in the hands of the right owner. After reviewing this wonderful boy's history and evaluating him extensively, it has been decided that Bru will only be released to a home with a balanced, calm Dane or Mastiff companion, and experienced adopters. He is certainly NOT hard to handle at all - he just has a very, very skittish/nervous temperament and his mental and physical wellbeing suffers without just the right balance. Smaller dogs have not shown to help him much in overcoming this, which is why he must have another "big pup" buddy. Experienced, current giant breed owners are highly encouraged to apply - this boy is everything you could want in a Dane companion, and then some - but only if your environment matches his needs. Without it, he simply falls apart and just can't get a good bearing on how to act or what to do, no matter how experienced or savvy the owner may be.
This sweet boy loves his people - loves cuddles, loves to play and zoom, and he even brings you presents (usually a stuffy toy) when you come home. Bru is not destructive and has lovely house manners. Interested applicants for this gorgeous, tall drink of water should email rescuedanes@verizon.net for a more detailed description of Bru, and any potential adopters must be willing to give him the TLC he needs to feel safe and secure. If you feel you may be the right one for this special Dane, email us!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Brutus, a Richmond Great Dane dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Great Dane for sale in Richmond, or seeking a Great Dane dog from a breeder in Richmond.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Richmond already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Richmond breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Great Dane breeders who help with Great Dane rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Richmond paves the way for another one to be saved.
