Are you thinking of surrendering because you are moving and cannot find a place that will accept Danes? These links may be able to help you locate an apartment that will: http://www.myapartmentmap.com/pet_friendly/
We accept purebred Danes from all sources. If you are a shelter, all breed rescue, animal control or individual we will accept the dog.
Owner surrenders are especially difficult and emotional for the owner and we understand that. There are many reasons for surrendering you Dane. The reason is not important to us. What is important is the fact that you care enough about your Dane to place it with us. We screen our applicants very thoroughly to insure your Dane will find the best home to accommodate its needs.
UMGDR will not take a dog that has bitten a human or another dog at a Level 3 or higher, unless the dog has been adopted out and is returned because it has bitten. The definition of a Level 3 bite is as follows:
- One to four holes in the skin, a puncture is considered a triangular hole with a curved entry point, from the canine teeth.
- Can include multiple bites; the holes must be less than 1/2 the length of the canine tooth, with tears in one direction only as a result of movement (human or dog).
All the Danes we accept go into foster homes where there may be other dogs, cats, and children. We can not put anyone in danger. If your Dane is aggressive, has ever bitten a human or attacked another animal you must decide what would be best for all concerned. The same applies to ill Danes. Is the Dane near the end stage of its life? What would be the best for this dog, not taking your emotions into consideration?
