My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Meet Oso: The Playful Great Dane in Search of His Forever Home!

Calling all experienced Dane owners! We have a special furry friend in need of a loving home. Allow us to introduce Oso, a five-year-old male Great Dane who is as playful as he is lovable. Oso is an extraordinary canine companion who has captured the hearts of everyone he meets. With his striking features and endearing personality, he's sure to bring joy and happiness to his forever family.

Oso is a remarkable dog who, despite being deaf, radiates an infectious zest for life. His unique circumstances require an owner who understands the needs of a deaf dog and can provide the patience, guidance, and love he deserves. Although he cannot hear, Oso relies on his other senses to navigate the world around him, and he has an incredible ability to adapt and thrive in any environment.

Oso's love for playtime knows no bounds! He especially enjoys spending time with other big dogs, as their size matches his own and allows for lively play sessions. Oso's playful nature and gentle demeanor make him a perfect companion for households with older children, preferably aged ten and above, who can fully appreciate his enthusiasm.

Oso's ideal home would be one where his owners are experienced with Great Danes and understand their specific needs. His size and strength require a confident and knowledgeable handler who can provide consistent training and guidance. With the right approach, Oso will thrive and become a well-rounded member of the family, showering his loved ones with unconditional affection and loyalty.

If you're an experienced Dane owner looking for a lovable and playful addition to your family, Oso could be the perfect match for you! His playful spirit, combined with his unique ability to overcome challenges, will make every day a joyous adventure. By providing a safe and nurturing environment, you'll be rewarded with a lifetime of unforgettable moments and the companionship of a remarkable dog. Oso is ready to embark on a new chapter, filled with love, laughter, and endless playtime. Are you ready to open your heart and home to this magnificent Great Dane?

Please like, comment and share Oso so he can find his forever family fast!

White Kisses is requiring Oso to be in training within fifteen days of adoption. Training is crucial for Danes to learn lifelong skills and to understand their place in the family pack. It is also essential part of new adopters getting to know their new Dane and helping them be a well mannered adult GREAT Dane!

More about this rescue

White Kisses Great Dane Rescue is committed to the rescue, rehab and rehoming of Great Danes in Texas and surrounding states. While we do rescue all types of full-blooded Great Danes as well as some Mastiffs and Dane/Mastiff mixes, our passion and #1 priority are the deaf, blind and special needs Great Danes.

We are a non-profit 501(c)3 Great Dane rescue operating solely on donations and the work of volunteers. Every donation helps us provide medical attention, housing, food and all other needs of the Great Danes in our care.

We primarily serve Texas and the surrounding states, with adoptions throughout the U.S. and Canada. Our goal is to not only save these magnificent gentle giants from living poorly cared for lives, but also educating the public regarding Double Merles and the care of these special needs Great Danes. We strive to place each Great Dane in the home that best fits the Dane.

Saving our gentle giants, one kiss at a time.
