My story

Sawyer is a super sweet boy who will keep you laughing! This big boy has tons of love to give and has never met a stranger! Do not let his age fool you, this boy LOVES to play. He will carry a ball around all day and insist you play fetch with him. He also loves stuffies and will play tug. This big goofy boy does get a little carried away and doesn't know his size, so he might be best in a home without small kids. Sawyer has done great in his foster home, no accidents! He will definitely tell you he needs to go out with a cute little bark. He saves all the big barks for anything he might see out of the window - nothing gets past Sawyer! He did great with intros to the resident dane. He could be good in a home with a cat but he definitely wants to play with them and will chase if given the opportunity. He does know to sit and will offer his paw for shake but we are still working on some leash skills. Sawyer always wants to be where the people are and will follow any available human around the house making sure he doesn't miss anything. He is being fostered in SC and if interested you can email us at

*****Great Dane Friends of Ruff Love covers NC and surrounding states for adoptions. We require a fenced yard (exceptions made on a case by case basis - NO exceptions for puppies or deaf/vision impaired dogs - no invisible fencing), that stairs in the home be covered with some sort of slip resistant material to prevent injury, that all other animals in the home be up to date on vaccinations as well as spayed/neutered and that all dogs live inside as a part of the family. Our approval process consists of an application, vet and reference checks, phone interview and house check. Please email us for an application or if you have any questions.*****
