MUST BE ONLY PET Hi! My name is Nellie but my family calls me Nel, Nel Bell, and Nellie Belly. They say I'm a super smart, loving gal. I know how to sit, shake, give a high five, and give a nice hug. I am 17 months old and have lived with my family since I was 12 weeks old. I had a rough start. You see, I was born to a backyard breeder who did not know how to care for me properly. My front legs were really messed up and I walked funny. I had carpal laxity syndrome due to bad nutrition. It didn't take long for my legs to straighten out and I am all better now. This will not cause any problems for me down the road. My Vet told me that I look wonderful and that I have fantastic butt muscles. Must be all the zoomies I do around the backyard. I'm super athletic and will play ball with you for hours. I really enjoy being outside and wherever my people are. I walk nicely on a leash with my Gentle Leader. I'm also trained with a beep/vibrate collar and respond well to it. Somebody is home with me most of the day but I am crate trained and go in my crate when they leave. I'm not a furniture chewer but I do like an occasional slipper, sock, remote control, blanket, or anything with a zipper so my family puts those things away. I sleep on a dog bed on the floor next to my parents at night but I would snuggle with them in bed if they allowed me to. I am perfectly potty trained and I even ring a bell when I want to go outside. Sometimes I do this for fun just to go play in the backyard. I live with 2 human kids that are 10 and 14 years old, my mom and dad, my deaf/blind Great Dane sister, and a stinky old cat. I love the human kiddos and I even love their friends. I haven't met a person I don't like yet. I think that cat is really interesting but he doesn't like to play with me. Sometimes I try to chase him down but he has so many hiding places I can't find him. My Dane sister and I used to get along great. We would play and play, chase each other around in the backyard, and sometimes cuddle together. Recently we had a little tiff. I'm not really sure what I did wrong but I scratched her ear and her neck. My family is heartbroken but thinks that I would be better suited in a home with no dogs from now on. I successfully lived with a male foster Dane who was recovering from a major surgery for 6 months recently. All of sudden though my attitude has changed toward my sister. I am eager to please and hope to find a special family that only has to concentrate on just me.

Hey There! I’m Zoey! I’m a 6 year old Great Dane, and I LOVE food! I’m a love, who will follow you around, play tug at all available opportunity, and will nap nearby while you’re working from home, or sitting in your favorite chair. If you have a couch, I would LOVE to snuggle (did I mention I love food?)! I like other dogs, once I get to know them, and cats are just fine by me. My foster family has rats too! I’m curious about them, they kinda look like squirrels, but I generally don’t pay them any mind. My favorite time of day is food time. I would love to eat whatever you’re eating, but if you tell me “no”, that just means an opportunity to be a food ninja! I do like my food that is provided too! ESPECIALLY when my foster parents give me an egg with my dinner! I would enjoy a family with one or two other critters, but I also want your attention and love, and I’m not afraid to ask for it. All time is DOG TIME! I’ll share my toys sometimes, but generally like my personal space when it comes to other dogs. I like car rides, going for walks (and do okay on a leash) and know my basic commands. I sleep in my crate at night, but if you have room in your bed for a big snuggle buddy, I’m game. I’m looking forward to meeting you! Zoey is recovering from TPLO surgery, and mass removal. We opted for a biopsy of the mass and it turns out that she does have a low grade cancer. It's been suggested that it shouldn't affect her life moving forward since it was such a slow progression, however we can never be too sure. She is looking for someone to love her with whatever life she has life to live! She does have some resource guarding issues with food around other dogs and sometimes she doesn't like sharing her toys, but we'll talk more about this if you're interested in Zoey!
