Great Dane

Female, 1 yr 7 mos
Council Bluffs, IA
(when grown) X-Large 101 lbs (46 kg) or more
Good with kids, House-trained,
Welcome to the Muddy Paws Crew, Luna! Luna is a young Great Dane (b. 10/2022) and is ready to join your family. Luna is housebroken and crate trained.  She does well in homes with children over the age of 6 year old. Luna still has a lot of puppy energy, is very active and likes to dig a little - she will require a fenced yard. She knows some commands, but is eager to learn more. Luna is also learning how to share toys and would prefer to be the only dog in the home.  The perfect home for Luna is with an active family that enjoys walking or playing with her.  After getting some exercise, she'll be ready to snuggle with you!  Don't let her size fool you because she is a lap dog at heart. Do you have room in your home for Luna?  Fill out an application today! The suggested adoption donation for Luna is $400, which includes a lifetime of free relationship-based training for any behavioral problems (not obedience training). Muddy Paws is a 501c3 non-profit organization meaning that part of your donation MAY be TAX DEDUCTIBLE. We are a 100% volunteer rescue committed to giving animals a second chance at life. All donations go toward that mission. Adoption fees are the primary source of funding for the cost of veterinary care for our animals.  In 2022 alone, we provided animal Healthcare totaling over $399,000 covered mainly through adoption fees. Please Note: A Courtesy Post designates that an animal is still in the home of its owner and not in a Muddy Paws foster. This means that our exposure to the animal is limited since we only assist the owner in finding a new home for their pet. From time to time owner,s find a new furever home for their pets outside of Muddy Paws Last Chance Rescue, and there is a delay in removing them from our site. We apologize if the Courtesy Post you apply to adopt is unavailable for adoption. Alter Agreement:  If the dog or cat you adopt is older than 6 months of age and not spayed or neutered, you will receive a voucher to alter the pet at Val Verde Animal Hospital or Omaha Animal Medical Group in Omaha, at no cost to you.  Or you can alter the pet at your own vet and be reimbursed $100 for dogs, and $50 for cats, of total cost.  If the dog or cat is younger than 6 months of age, the adopter will be responsible for the cost of altering the pet at the vet of their choice.  If proof of alter is received by Muddy Paws prior to the pet turning 6 months of age, a reimbursement of $100 for dogs, and $50 for cats, will be sent to you to help cover expenses.  All puppies and kittens MUST be spayed or neutered by 6 months of age.  All dogs and cats MUST be spayed or neutered no later than one month after adoption is finalized. Information about the adoption process: All adoptions require a completed ADOPTION APPLICATION. Once your application has completed our prescreen steps, we will put you in touch with the animal’s foster to see if you and the pet are a good match. If so, we will arrange a meeting for you and the animal. The adoptions for all of our animals will take place in the Omaha, NE area and must be done by the adoptive family in person. We do not ship or deliver.  Please Note: We are a RESCUE, which is different from a shelter. We conduct veterinary and personal reference checks, and a Home Visit (Virtual in some cases)  during the application approval process. We always select the right applicant for each animal, based on the animal’s needs. If you and the animal are not a good match, we will help you select another animal, or we will keep your approved application on file for 6 months.  To learn about Muddy Paws Last Chance Rescue or donate to our animals, please visit our website at or our Facebook Page Muddy Paws Second Chance Rescue Inc. ##2062602##

Great Dane

Male, Adult
Lisbon, IA
(when grown) Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
Good with kids, Good with dogs, Not good with cats, House-trained,
Are you looking for a snuggle buddy? Thor is ready! Thor wandered up to a home in rural Bethany, Missouri at the end of February. They reached out for help. Thor was good with their dog but they didn’t let him in the house. The temperatures were below zero at night. The Bethany Pound only has 5 runs and they were all full so he could not go there. It took several weeks to find a foster home for him. When we reached out and had a foster home ready they had decided to keep him. On April 9th, Thor popped up again, miles from where he was the first time. His ear was cut and infected and he had many scratches and scabs all over his body. He was much thinner than he was in the first pictures. This time we had a foster home open and went running to get him. Thor is 3-4 years old and looks like a small Great Dane mix. He weighs 75 pounds and could still gain another 5 pounds. Thor is equal parts cuddle and play. He loves to be held and petted and doesn’t know he isn’t a lap dog. Thor loves to chase a ball and plays well with other dogs. He is very respectful of another dogs play style. Thor is neutered, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm tested, and microchipped. He also had entropion surgery on his right eye. The lashes on his lower lid were scrapping his eyeball. This surgery corrected that. Thor is very well house trained and is kennel trained. If you would like to meet Thor, please complete the adoption application on our website: Filling out the application doesn’t obligate you to adopt, but does provide us more information. If you have any questions about Thor you can email or call 319-929-6657. Adoption fee: $300.00 Indoor homes only. Adopters must be in a 2 hour radius of Cedar Rapids, IA

If you have ANY QUESTIONS or are truly interested in adopting any animal from PAW Animal Shelter Please, fillout an adoption application FIRST!   WE are a high intake No Kill Shelter ran by a staff of 4 and do not always have time to answer every question asked by so many. If you are a good fit for the animal you are interested in -we will call to speak with you, If we feel you are not a good fit , we will contact you about other pets that may be a good fit for your home. Many people are losing the opportunity to adopt the animal they want because they fail to put in an application and the pet was adopted before we could answer your email. .If you have applied for an animal in our facility and have not received a response within 7 days, PLEASE call or contact us again. Though we do our best in trying to answer all emails in a timely manner, sometimes things get away from us, get lost or misplaced. It is never our intention to ignore a request about an adoptable animal in our facility. Sandy Brown, Director, PAW Animal Shelter 319-372-2274 ##1918116##

Great Dane

Female, Adult
Des Moines, IA
(when grown) X-Large 101 lbs (46 kg) or more
Good with dogs, House-trained,
Hello, my name is Kyra! I’m an 8 year old Great Dane weighing about 100 pounds. I know I’m a little older, but don’t let that fool you, I’m full of energy, healthy, and love to go on walks. I’m very friendly with everyone, cats, kids, dogs, and even a pig! I know sit, speak, shake, and stay. I walk great on a leash. I am fully potty trained and will tell you when I need to go. I prefer to have my own space when I eat, and I don't like sharing my kennel as it's my safe space. Overall I'm the best girl though and I’d love a home and family to spend the rest of my golden years with.IMPORTANT: Please read all below, especially if you live outside of Texas, which is where our rescue is located.Apply to adopt on our website: of our animals are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and up to date on shots.ALL of our animals are located in Boerne, TX, but transport after adoption is available to other states for a $300 fee for dogs or an additional fee varying by location for cats. If you are seeing our pets posted in your state, that's because you live near a transport stop, they are not currently at that location. Petfinder lists our pets as 'Out of Town' pets at other locations, and Adopt-a-Pet lists our location as a Transport stop. Those are currently the only options they offer to make this clear, so we put this description we've put at the bottom to explain it. You can read more about transport here: understand transport is not an option for everyone, but we offer it at the cost we pay the transport company for those who wish to adopt from us.May 27, 2024, 9:06 pm
