Great Couch Great Dane by KonikPolski Great Couch Great Dane by KonikPolski
This is "our" Great Dane. He was found and brought to the shelter. Very scared boy at first but he's coming around and is really starting to loosen up. He is very playful and sweet.

The couch belongs to the shelter and is part of a room where new owners can meet the dogs in a calm and undisturbed way.

March 29th: The three Great Danes we got at the shelter were all re-homed! And the amazing thing is that they could stay together. They moved to a large farm where they have all the space they need.

Great Couch Great Dane by ~KonikPolski

The suggester says, "I grew up having a Great Dane. Words can't describe how much these giants can teach you about principles and values that the world seems to forget so often about. They represent an amalgam of opposites: they have such an impressive stature, but they move around you and around everything that you own with an immense care and attention, they have an amazing agility, but they show it only when you nourish their excitement, they have an unimaginable strength, but they act like they are fragile, like babies, most of the times, because they yearn for attention and for love, they know honour and respect and they live by them. It brings joy to my heart when I read about people like ~KonikPolski, who are lucky and human enough to take part at activities meant to rescue Great Danes who had the misfortune to be abandoned or mistreated."

Can I use your beautiful photo as an illustration in a dog-related blog of mine here on DA? You can find the blog here: golden-club.deviantart.com/jou… to check whether you agree with the contents. The text will remain identical, but before I post this blog in the group 'stopBSL' which is focused on all types of dogs instead of just golden retrievers, I would like to add some pictures featuring other dog breeds as well. Thank you in advance.

It is lovely to hear the dog is doing well now btw :)

Wow, this is a great shot, and I love how it's part of a shelter. I actually volunteer to walk dogs at a local animal shelter, so this really hits home. Good for you and your Danes!

Ohhhh, this is so bittersweet. Our dear dog was a black lab mix and her mom was a Great Dane, so she looked so much like this...sadly she passed away a few days ago. :(

This is a beautiful photograph that captures the spirit and kindness of these dogs perfectly. I was moved by the fact that you were able to rescue these fellas and they now have the love and open space they need. You know a dog's living the good life if they have loving owners and a huge farm to play around in. Truly a wonderful photograph and story. I wish all dogs were that lucky! :heart: :aww:

I just adore medium to giant breed dogs. I have 5 dogs, 4 of which are medium to large with 3 being pit bulls (2 mixed with hound). Large dogs are such cuddle bugs! My 75 pound pit bull and black and tan coonhound hogs my bed every night. Couldn't sleep at night without her!

This is such a gorgeous shot of a magnificent dog. So glad all 3 dogs went to the same home. Congrats on the much deserved DD!!

Why would it matter? And why would you "fear" it? Its insensitive people like you that make me sick. And you misspelled just about every single word, along with your atrocious grammar. A two year old can spell DOG correctly. -.-
