Story
Tall Titan, is a strong and remarkable  Warrior,  a dog that has fought to be alive and walking  today on this earth.  He has willed himself to come from the depths of pain and starvation to become this handsome boy that you see right now.  He is our Super Hero Pup and our example of a creature that has never given up even when it would have been easier to just go to sleep and never wake up.    When Titan came to a rescue lady’s house that Critter Cavalry knows, this boy was malnourished and just a skeleton of the puppy he should be as a Great Dane.  The lady has a love for the Danes and she asked CCR to please take him into our rescue before she fell in love and couldn’t let him go.  She had enough dogs and just felt the temptation to keep him was too great.  We agreed and soon Titan was ours to raise and get prepped for a new home and family.  Shortly afterwards his foster family noticed he was struggling to walk and his joints were inflamed. Titan was taken to several vets before receiving the diagnosis of  Hypertrophic osteodystrophy (HOD). He has been put on a regimen of medications, high calorie food and hydrotherapy and is now running, jumping and playing with other dogs. His favorite things to do are play with toys, run and nap in the sun. Titan is a large dog and will do best in a home with another large dog or two that he will be able to play with. He will continue to need medication intermittently for some time and to be followed by a veterinarian.  If you have large breed dog experience and are willing to take on this fellas special needs please contact Critter Cavalry Rescue. He is not house trained to hold longer than 4 hours.  He needs to eat separately at mealtimes and he needs to learn better how to play with his toys in a group setting if there are other dogs.  If he is the only dog then there is no special monitoring.   Titan rides like a champ in the car or truck and he is definitely crate trained with good dog/name recall.  He would be easier to watch in the yard if you had a real physical fence installed since he likes to wander off out of curiosity.   Please email Critter Cavalry at ccrtennessee@gmail.com if you are interested.  He is great with young children/boys that are rough and tumble and lots of noise. PLEASE NOTE:  Our dogs are transported from Tennessee to meeting places in the states where we have posted.  Further information about us is given on our Adopt-A-Pet site.  The adoption fees vary and will be provided as well as noted on the application you receive.  Contact us at 615-661-5333 or ccrnewengland@gmail.comFebruary 25, 2024, 10:00 pm

Story
Goose is our most wonderful  3 year old, neutered, Blue Merle Great Dane who weighs in at a solid 120 pounds.  Goose is such a fun loving, happy boy whose favorite pal is a 60 pound, male Labradoodle who loves to wrestle, run and play with him.  We are so proud of how far this boy has come!!!  Sadly, Goose’s life hasn’t always been filled with fun and games. As a young pup who wasn’t properly trained or socialized, he was chained and crated - never allowed to run and play because his owner couldn’t control him.   Fast forward a few years to April, 2023, when he came to live on a farm with his foster mom.   On the farm, living  with no cages or chains to contain him, Goose became a puppy again.  His calluses haven’t all disappeared, but his body has made a total transformation.  His early lack of exercise in his hind end,  gave way to muscles and mind becoming mush.  Now Goose is a different dog with strength in his hind end and a sharp and excited personality that embraces each day with excitement and joy.  Because he wasn’t socialized properly with humans or animals, his life on the farm has also been a gradual transformation as he had to settle down and accept that the space around donkeys, dogs, cats and humans was their space and he was only welcome when he was invited in!  Goose just needs to be reminded  of his manners and that other animals need space.  Goose needs a consistent reminder to be polite and that needs to come from a new owner with a strong alpha presence and understanding of the gentle soul inside that big Great Dane body.  Someone must understand the true Great Dane nature.   Due to his larger size and  need for a lot of exercise, we are requesting that someone have a big backyard with lots of toys to play with and balls to fetch.  This is good dog to consider.   You will have to stay a few steps ahead of him and remind him of his P’s and Q’s.  But he is worth it every step of the way.   Please email us at ccrtennessee@gmail.com   He is in Nashville, Tn and we do transport to the northeast every weekend. PLEASE NOTE:  Our dogs are transported from Tennessee to meeting places in the states where we have posted.  Further information about us is given on our Adopt-A-Pet site.  The adoption fees vary and will be provided as well as noted on the application you receive.  Contact us at 615-661-5333 or ccrnewengland@gmail.comFebruary 25, 2024, 10:00 pm

Big Lil Harley is a beautiful black Great Dane who is not so big by standards of Great Dane sizes.  She is a 3 year old couch potato who is only 70 pounds and just a sweet lover girl.  Her family has had a bad health turn of events and Critter Cavalry Rescue is trying to help the senior couple find homes for their five wonderful dogs.   Big Lil Harley is great fun and loves to be outside running around in the fenced yard and enjoying the great outdoors.   She is shy when you first meet her which seems to be a frequent trait that we see in the Great Dane breed.  She warms soon but she will be reserved when first meeting new people.  She is housebroken, has not been around cats but loves people and good with other dogs.   This girl is just wanting a nice long couch to sleep on and a fenced yard to hang outside for hours.  If you have Great Dane experience, even better news!!!   Please email us at ccrtennessee@gmail.com  She is spayed and completely healthy and UTD on vaccines.  Let’s help this girl find the best “next” loving home!!!

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Fill out an Adoption Application Brief description: The story is about a young voyager named Atlas.  Atlas is a well-educated boy, who learned several languages with his previous owners who were Veterans.  Unfortunately, his devoted family fell on some hard times and had to make the tough decision to allow their sidekick the opportunity to spread his paws and find a new family that could give him the life he deserves.  While being in foster care, Atlas has gone on many walks and visits to the local Pet store.  He is always on his best behavior and has meet new dogs & puppies without issue.  He is introduced to many smiling faces who just want to sit on the floor and give him lovins… which absolutely delights him.  A true social butterfly who just wants to make you smile.    Likes:   Sunrises… he's an early riser who wants to get out of his crate by 7AM.  He loves to play with his Kong Jolly ball, go on walks, give, and receive hugs & kisses, and check out the beautiful countryside on his car rides.  He also loves his naps! Dislikes:  Being left alone he'll sing a sad song until you return Personality:   he's a class clown, family dog, old soul, athlete, independent thinker, and a wannabe bodyguard.  He has the potential to be a Velcro dog so if you need a shadow, he is your boy. Temperament:  eager to please, respectful, mellow, goes with the flow, curious, counter sniffer (will not take food unless given) not a big snacker (cares too much about his stellar figure) and at times thinks he’s a lap dog and snores loudly. Good with cats, dogs, and kids (over 6)?: Cat curious, older kids would be fine, sometimes he doesn't know his strength or pay attention. Challenges:  Taking meds with food, guaranteed to find the pill stuck in any treat he is given.  Gets excited and ready to play when he sees cats or small animals but easy to correct on leash.  He does get some zoomies while on leash but do find that if he has the freedom to be off-leach in a fenced-in-area a couple of times a day this behavior goes away.   Housetrained:  yes Crate trained:  yes, just point and say bed. Requires a fenced yard (physical fence and/or invisible fence)?  No, but would be nice to have for playing with him and if you don’t have the time to be out there for bathroom breaks. (He takes forever, I mean forever!) Walks well on a leash: Yes, will stop and sit on lead. Any Medical issues?  Atlas was diagnosed with Lyme disease but received a full month of medications.  He will only need to receive monthly preventatives going forward.  Veterinarian may recommend a Lyme Quant C Test to verify the antibody levels to make sure the treatment was effective after 6 months. He also had some masses removed before coming into rescue, that the owner said was due to a male dog attacking him.  What would be the best kind of home?  Atlas just wants a family to call his own who will give him lots of kisses and snuggles.    Application Fees, Adoption Donations and Rescue Policy: Please know that 100% of our fees and donations pay for the costs of rescuing dogs.

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Fill out an Adoption Application RAJAH IS LOCATED IN KNOXVILLE, MD. Rajah, The Good, The Bad and The Loving Great Dane! Since coming to MTM, Rajah has been adopted twice, and returned within a month each time. Why? She’s a big, strong, and playful girl, who came into rescue because her owner died, and her owner’s next of kin kept her outside for 2 years before surrendering her to rescue in January 2021. In those 2 years, she had minimal training and human interaction, and she became infected with heartworm. MTM provided heartworm treatment and she is now negative. Rajah’s previous adopters expected too much, too soon. The first adopters allowed their cat in immediate proximity within the first hour, and Rajah chased. Days later, it wasn’t any better. The second adopter had no other pets, and no children at home. Rajah was adjusting well to the routine and the long walks and all the attention. But, when an adult child and dog visited, Rajah got protective, so she was returned. Her perfect home would have a confident and patient owner, no children, no other animals, and a yard that is fenced in with a physical fence.  Rajah could potentially have a K9 brother or sister as long as his/her demeanor was calm and not overly exuberant or aggressive and they were introduced properly, with decompression techniques used. Rajah needs time and consistency to learn her people are trustworthy. She doesn’t have good social skills with dogs. She chases cats and other small animals. She has been with the same fosterer since April 2021. Her fosterer has other dogs, and goats. Rajah is kept separated from the other animals, and her fosterer feels Rajah doesn’t get enough time with her. Her fosterer describes Rajah as a loving, bouncy seven-year-old Great Dane, a "picture-perfect dog that is just beyond beautiful. Her soul and spirit are truly a rare blessing." She deserves a home where she can enjoy her own space and her own people. Rajah knows basic obedience, just needs to be reminded. She pulls at times but also knows how to walk at a heel position. She loves her zoomies but then will get excited and will jump up to face greet. Putting her in a sit and giving a calm chest rub will calm her back down. She rides great in the car. She has no issues with people approaching, but she will bark at other dogs. Going to the vet hasn’t been an issue. Grooming; she is fine with nails trims, brushing, etc. She is fine by herself, so she can be left alone while someone works. Likes: Rajah loves having her face petted and leaning in for a Dane hug. She is so attentive and eager to please. She does well in a crate, but she will sing to you if she needs a potty break, a hug or attention. Dislikes: Strangers, dogs barking at her, unpredictable people or activity Personality: Rajah is playful and loving. Her facial expression is so soft. She just wants to get and give love. Energy level: Rajah is able to be calm in a crate, but when loose she is high energy. She loves her zoomies so would do best in a fenced yard. She runs the fence barking at the goats, and the other dogs. Favorite activities: Zoomies and hugs. Good with: Calm, confident and predictable adult humans, and positive training. She likes to please. Not good with: Energetic or loud dogs or cats. She is insecure, so is not trustworthy with children. Housetrained: Yes. Crate trained: Yes. Challenges: Rajah will need to have her obedience training refreshed. She is calmest in a home with a confident owner or she will take control. She does not have good dog-to-dog social skills and she chases cats, so would do best in a home with no other pets. She has done well with calm K9's, so that is a possibility and can be explored in discussion with her current foster. Any Medical issues? Rajah is now heartworm negative! Rajah would thrive in an experienced Great Dane home that understands the importance of ongoing training to build Rajah's confidence. Being an only dog would give her the attention and the time she wants and needs to become a happy-go-lucky Dane. A fenced yard would give her the thrill of the zoomies that she so loves. Rajah may be seven years old, but she isn’t ready to slow down, a typical Dane, she will enjoy going for a walk just as much as a nap. Meeting this girl will bring a joy to your life that only a Great Dane can bring.   Application Fees, Adoption Donations and Rescue Policy: Please know that 100% of our fees and donations pay for the costs of rescuing dogs.

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Fill out an Adoption Application Handsome Rocky is a very sweet 7 month old Mastiff/Great Dane mix. He is friendly but does take a minute to warm up. He has good energy and is healthy and happy. Rocky loves his foster brothers and sisters, big and small, and plays nicely with them all.  He needs a home with a big fenced in yard and a furry friend to run and play with.   Likes: Rocky loves to play with toys, especially the squeaky or crackly type.  He is learning his commands and would do well with a training regimen. Dislikes : Rocky does well alone but needs his toys otherwise he may find things to play with that he shouldn’t if left alone and not crated. Rocky crates well and has learned to go to his crate for his meals. Personality : Friendly but a bit shy still and energetic, like most puppies. Temperament : Great with other dogs and with people, including kids. Energy level : Good energy - puppy energy. Favorite activities : Playing, learning new things, being loved. Good with cats, dogs, and kids (over 6)? :  Great with people and other dogs.  Not good with : Cats unknown,  Housetrained : He's working on it! He needs a doggie door or a regular schedule. Crate trained : Yes Requires a fenced yard (physical fence)? Must have a solid fenced in yard. This is a non-negotiable.  Walks well on a leash?   Rocky is still learning leash manners but with time will progress will. Challenges :  Getting him to feel confident with new people, especially men.  Any Medical issues? None known. What would be the best kind of ho me ? Rocky would benefit from a work from home family with other dogs (and kids are okay too). Another large breed confident dog for Rocky to play with would be ideal so he could learn the ropes and gain confidence himself. He's looking for a family that likes activity and will give him time to adjust and settle in. Rocky has a lot of love to give and is ready to find his people! Puppy Adoption Policy: To ensure proper house training and socialization, puppies will only be adopted to homes where an adult will not be away more than an hour per day, per month of age of the puppy, up to 6 months. Certain large-breed dogs should not be sterilized prior to 12 - 18 months of age. If you adopt an intact puppy, you will sign an adoption contract agreeing to have the dog sterilized at your expense at the time your veterinarian recommends. Proof of sterilization must be provided to Mastiffs To Mutts Rescue as soon as the procedure is completed. If the puppy is not sterilized as required, Mastiffs To Mutts Rescue reserves the right to claim legal ownership of the dog.

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Fill out an Adoption Application OLIVER (“OLLIE”) IS LOCATED IN ALEXANDRIA, VA. Meet Ollie, a 2 year-old Cane Corso/ Mastiff who was rescued from an Indiana shelter by MTM. Likes: Ollie loves his hoomans, bone chew toys, and dog pillow. He loves to go for walks to visit with the dog walking parade, and snuggling with his human on the sofa. He tries to be your lap dog! Dislikes: Ollie currently dislikes anyone near his food or chew bones. Personality: (Goofy, laid back, playful, etc) Ollie is WHOLE lot of snuggles! He’s playful (poster pup of ‘in your face’) and just wants to be schnuggled. He warns strangers near his home or his person, bumping himself in between foster mom and doors (or people), but once properly introduced he is very friendly to humans both big and small. Temperament: He’s a big puppy with a Velcro personality.  Ollie is an alpha personality and wants to be the alpha of his four legged pack mates (& humans, if allowed).   Ollie knows “no”, “off”, “stop”, “release” and “crate”, is stubborn but with patience, and listens to his foster mom. Energy level:  Ollie loves to be outside for walks less than a mile (he gets really excited when he sees his harness and leash come out and runs to the car and then the door). Favorite activities: By far, Ollie’s favorite pastime is car rides. And rawhide/bones. Good with small and large dogs, and kids (over 6)?: When properly introduced to new dogs, he does well (best if submissive). Ollie gets along with his alpha schnoodle brother and the energetic, submissive Dane foster sister, Rayna.  Ollie has not been tested with cats, but he doesn’t show interest in chasing small critters in the yard or on walks. Ollie has been exposed to both younger and older kids, barks until introduced, then runs to fence for pats on head.   Not good with: Oliver guards his bones & food, counter surfs, and is learning that toilets are only for humans (uses as backup water bowl if two legged males leave lid up).  He’s working on his bathroom and kitchen manners (but when your head is above countertop level… puppy temptation is hard to curb- lol). Housetrained: Yes! Crate trained: Yes! Requires a fenced yard (physical fence and/or invisible fence)? Ollie enjoys walking around and protecting his foster home’s fenced yard.   Walks well on a leash? Ollie is doing very well on leash (needs gentle lead).  He alerts and sometimes pulls if a male dog and him start a staring contest, but he can be distracted before continuing walk. Challenges: Ollie is a puppy with adult dog sized strength - with his strength building post surgery.  His leash manners are improving every day along with healthy boundaries for his alpha personality in a human world as well. Any Medical Issues? Ollie is recovering from TPLO knee surgery on his left rear leg, gradually strengthening it and is well on the way to a full recovery. He is scheduled to be released from doctor’s care early February!  His rear right knee does show scar tissue from a previous sprain - monitoring and minimizing stairs is recommended. What would be the best kind of home? Ollie will benefit most from a family who embraces his Velcro personality, enforces basic training, provides socialization with others (to keep him socially adept), and has other submissive-type dogs, if any.    Application Fees, Adoption Donations and Rescue Policy: Please know that 100% of our fees and donations pay for the costs of rescuing dogs.

Damon came to AFH severely emaciated.  He was a stray and there is no telling how long he had been on his own.  We also don’t know if someone intentionally starved him. What we do know is that Damon is a nice boy who is a little shy but friendly.  He has a good appetite and his foster told us that she has an “Italian grandma here ready to fatten him up”.  We love our Italian grandmas and our fosters! Check back to see Damon’s progress.  He will be ready for adoption after he has gained some weight and is neutered.Update: Damon is here! I He is soooo small, and has such a bubbly personality! He was giving everyone kisses on the car ride home! He loves people and did well with other dogs. He also did great on his first nail trim. Accuracy is not guaranteed; however, information provided is accurate to the best of our knowledge.  For more information on the pet, please send an email to info@aforeverhome.org February 13, 2024, 2:50 pm
