I agree! Unfortunately, BHRR's Mindy, Dana & Shiva fall under the 'big black dog syndrome' and sigh...... I think they are just bootiful!

I hope you have been keeping well!!!

I think they're beautiful, too! I never did understand that 'black dog' stigma. IMO many of the world's finest beings are black dogs!

they all get adopted into wonderful homes soon!

We're doing pretty well on this end! I hope all is well there, too! Nice to see you posting again!

Well, I told Guinness yet he pouted a bit and then said 'YAY! YAY! CONGRATS!' I am just tickled for you!

Pyrs are such lovely dogs!

Adoptions are slow.....unfortunately. I live in an area just saturated with Great Danes with more and more ads on places like Kijiji by byers etc. Yet the requests for assistance to BHRR has more than doubled since last year in comparison to wonderful adoptive homes coming our way.

So many are looking for a 'guard' dog or to breed or a 'status' symbol of wanting the biggest dog on the block etc.

Yet, we remain patient and as with all the other amazing Danes adopted before these four lovelies, their time will come and in the meantime, they get lots of loving, continued training and have 148 acres to hike and enjoy and a warm safe home with lots of food, water and soft beds to pamper them with! NOT to mention all their fellow friends here @ BHRR to hang with and quite a few of our approved Volunteers take these sweet creatures out for daytrips and play dates too.

For me, having them remain with us when they no longer needs us, does take away space for those that are in need of our BHRR program(s) and so may the right homes come along indeed!

You just need to get her there and introduce her to those big babies and when they start kissing her like they have known her forever it won't be a hard sell.
