|Breed:||Great Dane||Color:||Black - With White||Age:||Adult|

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and not good with cats.
Rocky is a 4 yr old, very handsome boy! He is a big ole mantle puppy dog who loves life. You couldn't ask for a more loyal companion. He is very loving & silly once he gets to know you! His favorite thing is to drink some water and then come over & plop his drooly, wet jowls in your lap!!!!! Isn't that special!!!! This fella is not for the faint of heart!!!!
This handsome boy has come a long way in the past 18 months he has been in rescue. Rocky was a drug house dog, living outside with no shelter and very little food. He has gained weight, started playing and has become a talker! He is still hesitant around strangers, mostly men, but warms up when given time to sniff and then move toward you on his own! He appreciates everything you do for him. He is an extraordinary fella. He is still a bit protective of his food and his toy but he gets better every day. For this reason, the big guy will NOT be placed in a home with children. We should mention, once he has a toy, it's his and he won't give it back until he is ready and then he will drop it on the floor!
If you would like to help with his care while he is in rescue, please go our homepage: www.azdanerescue.petfinder.com and click on Donate!!! Thank you for caring.
Did we mention how very loving and handsome he is and how he prances when he is wooing you!!!!???? Plz call or email to set up an appointment with his foster family. A home check and meet & greet with all family members is required. There is an adoption contract and an adoption fee of $400.00. 623 869-0409 Msg line ...

Rescue is done by volunteers/fosters who are dedicated to helping Great Danes in Arizona find a FOREVER home. We do not have a shelter for you to visit as everyone works out of their homes.. We have several reputable rescues that are currently working with the Alliance. Only those rescues that abide by and follow the Alliance criteria are allowed to post the danes they have available, on our petfinder site.
Adopting your dane through the rescuers with the Alliance assures you a dane that has been temperament tested, altered and vet checked. We require a home check and a meet & greet with all family members whether they are 2 or 4 legged! There is an adoption contract and fee.
We are the largest GREAT DANE RESCUE group in the state of AZ and have been caring for our beloved danes, here in the valley, for the past 16 years. We are dedicated to working throughout the state to provide the proper care & placement of danes in need whether they are a pound puppy or an owner turn-in.
