Ulysses - ADOPTED

ADOPTED: I have found my forever home and it only took 2 1/2 years but it was worth the wait!! I have a wonderful new family that will appreciate and love me as much as I will them!! Life is great!!!

I already have my 1st family portrait!! Love is in the air!!

Before Pictures & My Story Below

Ulyssa & I were dumped on a rural country road in Rowan County KY. The man that found us was unable to locate our owners so he took us to the already overcrowded county animal shelter. Unfortunately he had kept us long enough that we were considered owner surrenders and that meant we could be euthanized immediately for space. Lucky for us a rescue called STAR that works with the county animal shelter pulled us hoping to find a Great Dane rescue that could take us. Then our luck turned bad again when the Dane rescue that had said they would take us backed out because we were too skinny!!! But the volunteers of STAR did not quit they immediately started contacting other rescues and when they contacted Harlequin Haven they agreed to take us immediately!!! Plus the great volunteers with STAR even transported us to HHGDR the very next day!!! We are now safe and we are enjoying the food, soft beds, toys and especially the air-conditioning!!! We are being fed several small meals a day because we are very skinny but to make life even better we are in out of that excessive heat!! No dog should have to live outside especially in 90 - 100 degree temperatures. We are very happy and loving Danes and we greatly appreciate all that has been done to save our lives!!

I only weigh 100 pounds and should weigh at least 120 pounds. I unlike Ulyssa am not shy I am a very outgoing and just plain happy!!

Update July 8: I now weigh 112. Grandma says apparently we guesssed wrong on how much I should weigh because I don't look like I have gained 12 pounds!! Oh well, I sure have enjoyed eating, being cool and playing with my toys!!

Update July 22: I now weigh 120 pounds!!! I was neutered on Friday and all is going great!! I still have about 10 pounds to gain so it will not be long until I am ready to find that special forever home!!

Update August 5: I am now ready for adoption!! I am so happy!!! I am a very sweet and loving boy and would love a forever family that would treat me like a Dane is supposed to be treated--with love and kindness. However I do have a lot of energy for a so-called older boy, and would love a family that would play and romp with me!! Are you that family?? Check out my new pictures below!!

Update: I am still looking for my forever home!! One of the Danes told me Santa was going to bring it to me! Check out my new picture below!!! Of course NOW I know they were pulling my leg!

Update: WOW can you believe a handsome Dane such as myself is still sitting here at the rescue waiting for the right forever home??? I sure can't!!
