Calcifer is being surrender due to no fault of his own.  Meet Calcifer!

“Well hello there!  My name is Calcifer but you can call me “Cal Your Pal”.  Why call me “Cal Your Pal”, you may ask? Because I would be THE BEST friend you’ve ever had.  I give THE BEST HUGS and when life has you stressed – I can tell.  I will walk over and lay my head on your shoulder and let you know all will be ok.  We each just need to have a treat and relax together!

I am one of those “unicorn Danes” that don’t come along often – I am kid, dog, cat and bird friendly.  I currently live with another Great Dane.  I am a low energy guy and really happy just having a big soft place to lounge around throughout the day. 

As your official BFF, I can be a bit protective when strangers come to the home.  I will bark and then settle down.  I bark because I want to make sure you’re safe! Overall, I am just the biggest, cuddly guy – ready to find an amazing forever home.
