  • Hello from Illinois! So excited...

    I have always wanted a Great Dane and our family situation will finally allow for one and I am just super giddy. We recently went to a local rescue and met some great dogs. Can't wait till we get the call for the one we can bring home. For now, I want to read all I can and learn all I can because (IMHO) the more informed the better

        Yes, tell us other Illinoisans where you are............lol. Welcome! How exciting to finally get your dane. I volunteer with rescue, so if that one doesn't work out, there are several others around.

                  We are in Deer Park (just outside of Barrington), although at the moment we don't have a Dane. Ours died last March.

                      But not living in Illinois now. Still have grown kids and family there though.

                      Welcome
                      Hope your new fur baby comes to you soon! We have one adopted 'Bella' and are in the process of another right now. I think rescuing an older Dane is a great way to start one's Dane Addiction.

                              Hi and welcome to DOL.

                              I live in Woodstock, IL and volunteer at GDRM. If you have come to visit dogs, chances are we have met. We have a couple really sweet boys available right now. One is a lap sitter and extremely affectionate - I particularly enjoy spending time with him. I look forward to meeting you and seeing which lucky pup goes home with you.

                              Maggies, when did you adopt from GDRM, and do you remember your dogs name when he was at The Farm? You don't happen to have a Rottweiler named Sophie?

                              How cool for me to know that some of the rescue babies I have cared for are DOL Danes now.
