Story
Damon is now a whopping 70 lbs and fully vetted! He is housebroken, and will go to the backdoor to tell you he needs to potty. He is also crate trained and sleeps through the night. He has been getting professional training and is doing so well. He is learning to trust new people and did great at adoption. Damon is super happy when he meets other dogs and would do well in a multi dog home.  He has a lot of puppy energy, but he more than makes up for it with love. He has a lot of love to give, and will make someone very happy.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 May 20, 2024, 11:00 pm

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 OLIVER (“OLLIE”) IS LOCATED IN KNOXVILLE, MD Meet Ollie, a 2 year-old Dane/Mastiff mix 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. These include, but are not limited to: pull fees from shelters, veterinary examinations, vaccinations, medications and care, microchips, neuter/spay surgeries, heartworm treatments, behavior evaluations, and foster care, as needed.

Story
Mando is a big ol’ cuddle bug! He LOVES lovin’s. He loves people, kids, walks, toys, cuddles, and kisses. Mando was found at a home as a 5 month old puppy on a chain with no food or water. The owner was approached and eventually surrendered him. This poor boy is now 10 months old and has lived in a shelter his entire life. Mando would thrive in a home and deserves one of his very own. He is wonderful with other dogs and is untested with cats. Mando is a 10 month old male Dane mix who is approximately 60 lbs. He is neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped. Mando is a big boy and still puppy playful, so he may be too much for small children. Fence required. This furbaby is located at Animal Harbor in southern middle TN. You can apply at www.animalharbor.org. If approved, we will facilitate a virtual meet and greet and answer any questions you may have. We partner with the awesome transport service company Rescue Riders to safely and professionally move our animals to their loving new homes!

Meet Keeley! This absolutely gorgeous noble-headed two year old Great Dane mix is 78 pounds of gentle affectionate sweetness. She loves all people, gets along with the resident dog, walks well on a lead, is house trained, potty trained and can totally be trusted uncrated in the house. She knows basic commands, sleeps happily through the night on her bed, and she LOVES car rides - also loves walks but is not super high energy. Keeley is "just perfect" according to foster mom - she is very personable and affectionate and would love a home with as much attention and love as she can get. Her puppies have found their forever families and it's Keeley's turn - she is SO ready for a family of her own. Apply now for this special girl! Keeley is up to date on vaccines and will be spayed when she has gained weight and is fully recovered from having puppies.

Calling all Dane lovers, here is Luke! This gorgeous tuxedo-colored Great Dane boy is 85 pounds, ~4 years old, and affectionate, loving, and friendly. He has been wonderful with his foster cat and dog siblings, male and female (especially loves the 6 month old puppy), and he was raised in a home with toddlers. Like most of his breed mix, Luke bonds hard with his people and will be happiest in a home where someone is home a lot of the time. Having a canine sibling would be an added bonus for this gentle giant, but is not required. He walks well on a lead and loves to play on the backyard and is a joy to have around the house. Apply now for this special boy! Luke is neutered and up-to-date on vaccines. The adoption fee for this dog is $425 which includes routine vetting and spay/neuter.

Daisy Mae is still a puppy at 8 months but a very large puppy. Not really what people are expecting to see under Puppy so we have listed her as young. She is still learning from the older dogs in our home, all of which are significantly older. She is very sweet and seeks approval and affection. She loves to play and most of them are not into run and play activities. We have just taken in a 2 year old Lab mix which may be her new best friend and playmate. She would do well with an active family or a home with another dog that loves play and companionship. Daisy Mae is completely vetted with all vaccinations, she is spayed and her double dew claws were removed from her back legs. when she way spayed, she is heartworm negative and microchipped. We have had a string of extremely hot weather so we had her shaved recently; however, all that fur will grow back ... no worries. Photos show her with fur and one shows her as she is currently after her haircut. Daisy Mae desperately needs a loving home and someone to help her transition from a big puppy to an adult. All she wants is a family to love and protect. RPACI is a non profit rescue, and currently possess our 501C3 to operate as such. Please visit us on Facebook: Rebecca's Paws and Claws in Remlap and our website: www.rpacirescue.org. All dogs from this rescue are transported from Alabama to the Pennsylvania/ New England/ Virginia area and delivered in Pennsylvania, Virginia and RI. Each dog will come fully vetted. Price also includes transportation and a Health Certificate as required by law. There is a 100.00 deposit required at the time of adoption to secure the transport crate. The remainder of the fee will be paid once you pick up the dog. Naturally the 100.00 comes off the total owed at pick up. It will be refunded if for any reason you decide you do not want to adopt, unless the transport has already left.with the dog. To get a application please email: saveapreciouspaw@gmail.com You can also visit our website Rpacirescue.org to fill out an adoption application
