Stanley's Story...
Stanley is searching for home…

My name is Stanley and I’m a 6 year old male Merle Great Dane. I was relinquished to the Forever Friends Great Dane Rescue by my owner. Before I was in my foster home, I led a pretty sedentary life and it shows on my waistline…or lack thereof! My foster home is working on my weight by taking me on walks, exercising me, and not allowing me to free feed! I’m quite happy about it because the extra weight was hurting my joints!

I’m a BIG people-person…I mean “people dog!” I absolutely love to be around people and will do almost anything for a good petting! If you want a watchdog, I’m not for you because I would let anyone in the house and love on them!

I really like my chew bones! My foster mom calls me her goofy Clydesdale because I will come in for a chew bone and prance around with it shaking my head all around! What can I say, I love my bones! I’m also quite content to lay on the floor with my humans and take a nap! I don’t like to be in an area separated from people. I bark to make sure they know I’m still there but I settle down after a bit. My foster mom is working on my barking and I’m trying to learn that it is ok to not ALWAYS be around someone!

I know how to sit and I work great on a leash! I love my walks and I promise not to pull you around! I have met quite a few other dogs, big and small. I like the less dominant dogs the best! I’ve met some kids and they don’t bother me at all. I’m a laidback guy and my foster mom says I’m a joy to have around!

I’m a big sweetheart who deserves a loving home for the rest of my years. If you can take me on walks and give me the security of a family, fill out an application for me today at

Lots of love,

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Stanley, a Morris 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 Morris, or seeking a Great Dane dog from a breeder in Morris.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Morris 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 Morris 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 Morris paves the way for another one to be saved.
