See Dogs


Daneiff, Male, 1-2 Years Old

Dudley is a 1-2 year old Male Great Dane/Mastiff.  Through no fault of his own he was surrendered to us because his family was relocating and could not bring him with them.

Dudley has the heart of a 6-month old puppy. He is very smart. He will need training as he is lacking basic obedience and manners (he pulled his foster mom into the vets office like a champ ). His previous owners did teach him to bark at people. So while he sounds like he might eat you, he LOVES everyone that he has come in contact with. He does well with other dogs. We are unsure about cats. He will not be good in a home with small children simply due to his size and lack of manners. Dudley was just neutered.

Mandolin a/k/a Mandie

Great Dane, Female, 8 Month Old

We would like you to meet Mandolin a/k/a Mandie. Mandie is a 8-month Female Black Great Dane.

Mandie’s Story:

The state was in the middle of an ice storm and a local volunteer was two hours away when we received a call from a shelter. The shelter stated that in 2 1/2 hours they would be putting down a six month old female Great Dane because she has kennel cough. We were lucky enough to pull some strings and get them to extend their time frame because the 2 hour drive turned into a 4 hour drive (due to ice and a 25 mile traffic jam). Many dirt roads later and help from one of our phenomenal vets and the assistance of a staff member at the shelter we were able to make a last minute SAVE!

So how did Mandolin get her name? While at the vet our volunteer ran into someone very special; who named her Mandolin for the Holidays. We are calling her Mandie for short.

This girl will need some recuperating time in our Medical Foster home. She needs love, groceries (she is very skinny) and to get healthy from the kennel cough.



Great Dane Mix, Female, 4.5 Years Old

Angel is a 4.5 Year Old Great Dane/Smooth Coated Collie Mix.  She loves playing with other dogs and ignores cats, unless they want to play.  She loves her people and even though she loves playing with other dogs, she really wants her human all to herself. 
She is also laid back and enjoys a good cuddle and chill on the couch while catching up on some TV. 

Angel is crate trained, enjoys toys and completely untrustworthy on free roam with high interest items (this includes expensive items; we don’t know how she knows – but she does!)


Boxer, Male, 7 Years Old

This is Chato a 7 year-old Male Boxer; the Newest Honorary Dane to STG.

This boy was hit by a car and no one is able to help him so we have brought him in to give him a new start. We know he is not a giant breed but he has a sweet and GIANT heart!

Chato is currently recovering from surgery and under evaluation.


Duke the Mastiff

Mastiff, Male, 10-11 years old


Duke the Mastiff is still looking to find his forever home!

The shelter that Duke was abandoned at (left outside tied to the light pole) has said that they think Duke is about 11 years old. But based on his face and his teeth we are guessing he may be quite a bit younger.

Duke the Mastiff is a SUPER SWEET boy. He gets along with all dogs in his foster home. We are unsure about cats.

Duke does have Hip Dysplasia and Knuckles on his back foot. He does need a little help standing up. BUT we will be starting a new treatment (Etherna-pure / Summit) on him; which should help alleviate his issues.

For Duke the Mastiff, we will require a home with minimal to no stairs and carpet or runners throughout the home (slippery floors are not good for this boy).

Duke the Mastiff just needs a good LOVING Home & Family that will allow him to crash on the couch. Are you his new family??


Great Dane, Male, 1 Year Old

Meet Eustace! Eustace is a year old and has Auto-immune issues along with HOD. While we were very lucky and caught the HOD early, he will always show signs of this through his deformed limbs. There is always a slight chance that it can come back and his pet parents will need to be very careful with vaccinations due to the auto-immune issues.

Eustace LOVES toys, food, playing with others and climbing on his person. Paw Patrol is a morning favorite that he will watch with his little sister. He requires inside and outside toys and will take toys out if he feels there is not enough outside. Laying in the grass is a great day for him and depending on the treats he loves spending time training and pretending to walk well on a leash. 

Eustace loves everyone once he gets to know them, but the world at large is very scary and he tends to have issues away from his Emotional Support Person. He is currently in training to work on his confidence. When stressed he can often be destructive or not be able to control going to the bathroom.

Great Dane, Female, 5 Years Old

Meet Cocoa! is looking for her New Forever Home.

Cocoa is 5 years old and is learning the benefits of having fur siblings and toys, lots of toys! She can play a little rough with her fur siblings, but quick to redirect. She has lived with children and seems to ignore cats.

Cocoa is an expert at opening sliding gates and sliding doors. She has enough drool for two other dogs. She loves to be in the middle of the action and assumes everyone else wants her there! She is a foodie and likes to sample everyone’s dish!

Cocoa’s Back Story: Cocoa is a 5 year old black Great Dane that was owner surrendered to us due to a divorce. Cocoa is recovering from a Happy Tail Surgery. The skin is so damaged and will never fully heal so the vet removed the last 2-3” from her tail.


Ziggy Stardust

Great Dane, Female, 8 Months Old

Ziggy Stardust is all Great Dane - a Pocket Great Dane.  She was owner surrendered and believed to be about 4 years old.  She is timid and in good health, up to date on shots, and she is heartworm negative.  Her Foster Mom tells use that she gets along with everyone.  She is so sweet.  And in a short time she has already earned to be free roam in the house.  She can be a little standoffish but warms up quickly (this is fear-based not aggression-based).  

She is super sweet according to everyone that has fostered her, transported her.


Great Dane, Female, 2 Year Old

Lottie is a 2 year old Black Great Dane (Female).  She is still being evaluated.  But we have been told by the boarding kennel she is super sweet with people.  She does bark at other dogs through the kennel door but it isn't aggression (she may just be bored).  She craves human interaction.  When she's outside she's glued to your side.  She does the playful gallops and such that Danes do.  She has an adorable personality.


Once we get Lottie settled in to a Foster Home we will get you more information.



German Shepherd Mix, Female,  9 Months Old

Arwen is believed to be an German Shepherd Mix (but she is an Honorary Great Dane to us) and about 9 months old.  Arwen and her brother were dumped on the side of the road because they had Parvo.  Arwen is so strong, brave and a Parvo survivor.  She is in her Foster home right now and thriving.  She is so SWEET.  All she asks of you is for Love and Scratches.  All this girl could ask for now - is to find her Forever Home.



Great Dane, Female, 7 Months Old

Hi there! I'm Phryne and I'm named after the heroine in Miss Fisher's mysteries. She had a lot to overcome just like me, but like my namesake, I'm going to come out on top. My foster mom says that I'm deaf and have some health issues but apparently I'm not old enough to fully test yet. I may also have some vision issues, but rest-assured, I am not going to let this stop me from living the best life possible. Just like my book character, I am very courageous and will tackle the tough hand I was dealt with fearlessness. I have been told I have the sweetest of hearts and I love to snuggle. I'm looking for my forever home where I can be loved unconditionally despite the obstacles I need to overcome.  


Eleanor a/k/a Ellie - PENDING

Great Dane, Female, 2 Years Old

Meet Eleanor (Ellie, Ms. Ellie).  According to her Foster Mom, Eleanor seems to like Ellie the best. It is less formal and she will respond to you better when you call her Ellie. She is a sweet loving Mamma. She is also a Velcro Dane. According to her Foster Mom, she stays very close and often steps on the back of her heels regularly.  

Ellie is fully potty trained and is easily corrected with a simple "no". So far she exhibits no dominance issues with any of her foster siblings. She does not know any basic commands but it isn't an issue because she is so gentle and just wants to be by your side. Ellie has not needed to be in a crate in her foster home; because she is a good girl. So far the worst thing she has done was move a bag of treats off of the coffee table (but she did not chew through the bag). Her only bad habit is she will politely jump on you (more like a hug) when you first get home and the other pups are getting all of the attention.

Ellie is the definition of a Gentle Giant. She is absolutely the sweetest and well behaved Mamma!

Teddy (2)_edited.jpg


Great Dane, Male, 15 Weeks Old

Teddy is a 15 weeks old Male Great Dane (his Mamma is Eleanor). He is in a cast but don't let it fool you he is NOT a dare devil like his sister. But, he is not easily intimidated either. He has a goofy side; when he hears the treat bag crinkle he will run (and sit) so fast that he sort of does the Risky Business slide on his butt in the sit position (it is hilarious and his Foster Mom is trying to get us a video). This is also a good sign that he is food motivated for training. Teddy is more potty trained than his Sister and will alert his Foster Mom when he has to go but usually only makes it to a potty pad before going potty.

Teddy is in a splint/cast because he jumped off the sofa and fractured his leg. We think his fracture is healing nicely as he is not on his pain meds anymore and feeling no pain. He is currently trying to run and play; he is ready for the cast to be gone. He is more easily scared than his Sister and will whine when he's scared and roll over. He is actually very dramatic when he's scared or hurt (he knows what to do in order to get some extra attention).

Teddy is just the SWEETEST!
