Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. Fill out an Adoption Application 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 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. Rajah is located in Knoxville, MD. 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 HEADLINER: Abby HISTORY: Abby came to MTM with her three pups after giving birth under a stranger’s porch. Since coming to MTM she has started putting on weight and has shown her devotion to her pups. PERSONALITY: Abby is so very sweet; she’s a pro at the Great Dane lean but she also will pull your hand over if you stop petting her. She’s happy to lay on the couch with her head on your lap. She’s typically calm and easy going, but loud noises such as fireworks and thunder make her anxious and afraid. FAVORITE ACTIVITIES: She likes being with people and enjoys naps on the couch. MEDICAL ISSUES: She’s still putting weight back on and recovering from giving birth. She’ll be spayed on July 18th . WHAT WOULD BE THE BEST KIND OF HOME: Abby would do best in a quiet home or a home that will give her the time needed to settle in. She does well with other dogs, cats and livestock, but gets a little anxious when new people or dogs come to visit. ADDITIONAL COMMENTS:  Abby is sweet, calm and generally well behaved. During the day she has free roam of the house and interacts well with the pack of five dogs that live in her foster home. (Even the crazy Dane puppy that’s the size of a horse and has zero concept of personal space.) At night Abby has the choice of sleeping on a dog bed near her pups or on the couch. So far she has always ended up on the couch. Word of warning though, she’s a counter surfer. Possibly that will ease as she settles into her forever home, but no guarantees so be prepared. Abby has been protective of her pups and sometimes her food. Although it can sound bad it’s a case of all bark and no bite. She is not being aggressive, but she might trigger a less stable dog. Time, patience and understanding will be required from all members of the household. Abby would be good for a first time Dane owner or anyone wanting a young but mature, well behaved adult dog. She’s all the fun of a young, active dog without the house training and the Velociraptor puppy stage.
