This is Molly, we brought her home 7 years ago. She was scared and didn't know how to play with toys at the time. Now she is definitely full of happy courage and loves her toys. Jan

This is Brutus. He is an almost 2 year old Great Dane. He is a rescue of a rescue....meaning that his mother was rescued from a breeder while she was pregnant with his litter. We then rescued him (or he rescued us!!) when he was 8 weeks old and 17lbs. He’s now over 6.5ft tall when on his hinds (like in this photo), 130lbs and growing!!! He loves kids, napping all day long, and walks. A true gentle giant, as the breed is called!!
