A Male Great Dane-x presently Available For Adoption

Could you imagine being able to wake up every morning and gaze upon this face?  I know I’m a hunk and all, on the other hand, I’m so much more than that.  My name is Rufus and I am a looking for a life of stability and security.  I’m a 1.5-year-old Dane mix who was brought to Animatch by the Nordic Paws Project; my Northern family were unable to keep me. Despite this setback, my spirit shines through.  I am on the lookout for an experienced family who will take the time to let me settle in and then enroll me in obedience training – we have some work to do.   I am told that it is quite a chore to walk a 95 lb dog who believes that the harder he pulls the faster he will get to his destination.  For that reason, you must learn how to handle me to make our regular outings pleasant. I need daily walks to use my muscles in order to remain strong and healthy.   I am quite dominant in the company of other dogs, so it would be best if I was your one and only.  As for cats, not an option for me!  My new family will like that I can be calm and gentle because my happiest moments will be when I am with my humans.   Will you walk with me hand and paw and give me the life that I yearn for?  If you think that you could be the perfect family for me, please fill in the Adoption Form.
