This Sailor is looking for his final port to call his home.  Meet Sailor!

Ahoy Mates!  My name is Sailor and I am looking for a foster or foster-to-adopt home.  I am ready to join your crew “below deck”, “on deck” and “upper deck”.  Ok, I will join whatever deck you want so long as there is a place for me to lounge!

A wonderful human saw me posted in a classified ad and saved me from a sad backyard breeder situation.  She reached out to Rocky Mountain Great Dane Rescue for help.  Much of my life was spent in a crate.  I now know that this sailor is meant to navigate the high seas – ok maybe I will just navigate a really comfy couch – but that’s fine by me!

I am a very much a big, sweet couch potato, Dane leanin’, loving boy.  I play gently and like to learn new tricks.  The human that saved me said I am absolutely wonderful.  Don’t take my word for it – she says I am, “Smart, funny and playful; wants to be part of everything you’re doing.  Sailor is everything that makes Danes amazing.  He LOVES attention.”   

Given my background and lack of socialization with other animals,  I have shown initial aggression toward another dog in the home and have been kept separated.  I have also demonstrated a high prey drive for cats.  It is unknown once I settle into true Dane life, and I may be able to share a home with certain dogs just fine, but for now – I need a home to decompress as the only animal in the home.    

I love going on adventure walks and car rides.  I am also all about meeting people and crave human love and attention.
