A Male Great Dane presently Adopted

My name is Gaston and I’m longing for someone to take me home ... forever this time.   I am one of 17 dogs that were recently transferred to Animatch from a small rescue; unfortunately, the person taking care of us died.  I can’t give you any of my prior history but I was safe, had shelter and food, and felt loved while I was in her care.  My heart has been broken and my whole world has been turned upside down -- again.  After a few days at the Centre, I am not so anxious because I recognize the friendly faces and know that everyone here only wants what is best for me.   Despite all the recent setbacks in my life, my spirit shines through.   I am five years old which for a Great Dane means that I am nice and mellow.  Just because I am quiet does not mean that I do need daily walks.  I should to use my muscles regularly to stay strong and healthy.  After a nice long walk, I am quite content to then go home and chill out with my guardian.  If you sit, I will lay my head in your lap in complete admiration.  My new family will like that I am calm and gentle.  I get along with other dogs, but my happiest moments are when I have the full attention of my human. I’m a great dog who is just waiting to get back to living in my own home, preferably with people who know all about my magnificent breed.   I know that if you meet me, you won’t be able to help falling in love with me.  Is there room in your home and a place in your heart for a gentle giant like me?  Please fill in the Adoption Form if you can give me my furever home.
