The story of two Floridians and their foster Great Danes
Before you adopt any specific breed, you have to know about the breed’s temperament, levels of care required, and what medical issues they are prone to. I’m doing all that through online research, but I thought it would be helpful to actually meet with and talk with people who work with and deal with gentle giants on a regular basis.
I did a little research and found a couple of giant dog events that happen around Central Florida. Last Saturday, Christian and I drove to the Petco in Titusville to meet the lovely folks with Great Dane Love, a Central Florida Great Dane rescue group. I was beyond excited to meet some Great Danes. Here are some photos documenting our experience.
I was going through the photos and there were way too many that I wanted to put up. I decided to just upload all of them to Facebook and direct you there. Click here to see all of the photos.
The volunteers were great with answering my endless questions. Here are some things I learned from them:
The main focus of our discussions was talking about the rescuing, fostering, and adopting process.
I’ve written a blog post about that, which will go up tomorrow. Read about the process here.
We had a great time meeting these gorgeous Danes. If you are interested in learning more about Great Dane Love, check out their website. Also, shoutout to my awesome husband for taking photos while I was running around loving on all of the adorable Danes.
