Just saw this. I hope so much Sadie finds a wonderful home so she can be in comfort and love for the remainder of her life. I will keep my eyes and ears open for a home for her.

I feel like the shelter may need to do some work on her social skills. I know old dogs are often like old people...cranky due to joint pain and such, but many of us who would take Sadie in already have dogs. Hope she finds a place soon.

I just looked up sanctuary for old dogs. There are several. However, with her being so stressed by being with other dogs... Which is worse - stress from exposure to new dogs, or stress of staying in a shelter?

SADIE HAS A HOME! Thank you to everyone who showed concern for Sadie. She has a temporary foster home and a few homes ready to adopt her! The rescue got a backlash from people upset that she was going to be euthanized. The reason Sadie was to be euthanized (She was first going to get spoiled in a foster home for a week) was because there was no foster nor permanent home for her and she has had to be boarded. Her emotional and physical health has been declining because she is miserable in a kennel without a family to love her and she doesn't understand why her family dumped her (Neither do I!) The rescue has done EVERYTHING they can to find her a home but she was difficult to place because she is old and can only go to a home with no other animals nor young children. PLEASE. . . please always consider adoption before going to a breeder. These animals need you!

Have you contacted a great dane rescue to take her? These people take in large breeds:

https://www.bigbonescaninerescue.com/
http://rmgreatdane.org/

We would take her in a heartbeat but we do have 3 great danes at home so she wouldn't be the only dog. From what I understand the 2 I listed above do home checks which is a great thing!

Who says Thursday? Giving this dog a death sentence just because it's thursday? You should be ashamed and should better represent this old dog- I can't take her for some of the reasons that you give, but I'm willing to contribute some bucks towards her care!! Another poster has given an alternative Great Dane adoption agency- PLEASE DO NOT KILL THIS DOG!!!

Oh no!

Poor Sadie, abandoned and scared. It is just so sad. There must be someone who could help. Please!

I'll happily donate something to her costs. Just tell me where.

Hold on. NO ONE should be ashamed of anything in their efforts to help this old dumped dog except maybe her original owners, but we don't know their side either. So just hold on. I contacted the rescue and here are both their public and private responses to me.


"Her quality of life is deteriorating at the kennel. We are hoping that she perks up a lot at her temporary foster but a boarding facility is not the place for a 12 year old great dane and no one has applied to foster or adopt her in the 1.5 months of having her. We are trying many different avenues with placement at the moment and are hoping something works out."


"We are struggling to find a foster or adopter for Sadie at this time. Her quality of life mentally and medically is starting to decline. We have a volunteer that is boarding her dogs so that Sadie can stay at her home for a week to determine if she does better and then we will re-evaluate her. At this time there are no immediate plans to euthanize her but we also want to make sure she has a good quality of life."


She must be an only dog. That alone has huge challenges. Shes old. She been at a kennel for a month and half and NO ONE has offered a home. The current foster is boarding her own pets to give Sadie a new chance.
I suggest you contact Lolas Rescue directly if you have productive helpful options for this dog.

Here is contact info for the rescue handling Sadie. They have had her kenneled at another facility they partner with.
Please if you can, offer help and support.
