Harlequin Haven Great Dane Rescue
I am NOW
ready for adoption!!
My owners dumped me at the Franklin County Animal Shelter when they decided they no longer wanted me. The previous owners dumped me on them when they were moving and no longer wanted me! I had only been with this family for 6 weeks and it was a horrible 6 weeks!!! I lived outside and was seldom fed! When I arrived at the shelter I was scared and hungry. The shelter immediately called HHGDR who set up a transport the same night. When I arrived at the rescue I was weighed, I only weigh 107 pounds! I am a big boned and very tall boy and the rescue feels I am at least 50 pounds underweight. I am being fed every couple hours so that I do not get sick or bloat. I know the amount of food I am being fed each time is very small but it Grandma says as soon as I can tolerate more I will get more!
December 24: Today was a great
day!! Grandma gave me a bath, cleaned my ears and cut my nails!! I feel
like a new boy!! I was so filthy that Grandma teased me that I lost
another 10 pounds! I also got on the scale, I now weigh 110.8 pounds.
Funny what being fed will do for a boy!! The other dogs keep talking
about Santa Claus coming and bringing them gifts, Justice
and I told them to be thankful that they had food, shelter, soft beds
and love! We both agree Santa already came for us! Well my belly is
full, I am clean now and I am really sleepy I think I will take a nap!!
Update March 27: Sorry I did not post
an update but I was sick for quite a bit after my surgery and I just
last week started feeling better. I am now back to gaining weight so I
can get ready for adoption. I lost quite a bit of weight when I got
sick, I weigh 141.6 pounds now. I will try to post weekly updates
again on my weight!
Update April 20: Grandma received a package in the mail and in it besides things the rescue can turn into money she found a RagDog. The nice person made RagDog for a needy Dane at the rescue well I may not be the most needy but when I saw RagDog I decided it was mine to keep!! Scroll down to view the pics of me with my new RagDog!
Please if you can spare a few dollars to help the Rescue to help me it would be greatly appreciated. As you can see from my emaciated body, I have a long road to recovery and add on the surgery to remove the metal disk and well I have cost the rescue thousands of dollars. Thanks, Dillon
