My name is Spock. I haven't had a rough start like many of my friends. I had a loving owner who had to give me up, but not before finding me a safe place to stay at ALPRAS while I found a new family to love and care for me. I am looking forward to finding my Forever Home.

There are some really good things about me. If you want a dog that loves to play but can settle down when you do, I might be the dog for you! I don't really need a lot of walks, although I do like the dog park and meeting other dogs. I don't mind cats and they don't mind me.

They say I'm a Lounge Hound because I like to lay on couches and dog beds especially if there are blankets involved. My favorite types of toys are Chew Bones and Woobies. Woobies are amazing for tossing around in the air and cuddling! I have a lot of energy too for playing with other dogs of all sizes. Sometimes they think I'm part Gazelle. I'm still young and strong and would love to be in a home with a pack of other dogs, or kids, or both! It's been 3 years since I've started this journey of finding a new home, but I'll never give up.

Pick me and together we will 'Live Long and Prosper'!

We have a Great Dane that is awesome with others, however we purchased prior to having children. While good with the kids (1 and 3) they can crawl all over her and she is very protective, when someone comes to door or a diff sound she will rush up and sometimes knock them down or just rush through. Makes it difficult to care for babies and children. We would appreciate any help you can give. She is 5 years old. We got her at 8 weeks. She is all black and is purebred with papers.

Hello I just spoke with you on the phone about my Great Dane. Here are some pics of her. She's 8 or 9 I'm not sure which. They are the only ones I have on my phone. I can send more later if you need them.

Thank you.

My name is Shannon and I just spoke with you about Oakley. He is a 6 year old Male Blue Merle. He was born march 10 2011. He is purebred (however no papers). We have had him since he was 8 weeks old. We recently adopted twin toddlers and had a baby shortly after. Oakley has always been good with people, however now with three toddlers in the home he is on edge and uncomfortable and spends his days confined behind a baby gate. He has never been aggressive towards the children, however he is uncomfortable around the little ones, unless he is eating their food. He is good with other dogs and cats and older children over 10 years. He is protective of our home to strangers but friendly to family and friends. We have had a lot of foster care workers in and out of our home weekly for the last two years and Oakley seemed well adjusted to the visitors. He is neutered and up to date on shots.

This is a very hard decision for our family, as we love him very much. Any help would be greatly appreciated as we want him to go to a good home and be safe.

Thank you,
Please let me know what else you may need from us.

I am a volunteer for Friends of Citrus County Animal Services (FOCCAS) in Inverness, and a citizen has contacted me about surrendering two Great Danes, 1 male and 1 female, 4 years old asap. I will send you to the owners, message me - just helping spread the word.

"Hello, my name is Brian. I understand you may be interested in adopting my Danes. Not sure if you were interested in both or not. They are great lovable dogs, they don't like other dogs though. Maybe with proper training they could be. My male especially get jealous of other dogs, I think that's more of it than a dominant thing.

(left) Black female utd on vaccinations and spayed. Male on right needs to be only dog in mature family, neutered. Both 4 years old."

Male, blue merle, fixed. He is 6 years old and will be 7 on July 28th. He has early stages of hip displasia, has thunderstorm anxiety, and is very lovable. I can't financially support him after I get divorced which is why I am trying to find a home for him. His name is Bull Dozer, aka Dozer.

A note from Linda Drag

I'm terribly sorry for the delay in responding to all of you that are interested in adopting, but I have been spending most of my time down in Fort Lauderdale taking care of my father who was dying from pancreatic cancer. My mother has Alzheimer's and he was her care giver. She is very angry, confused and combative. My emotional and physical energies have been focused on them and cleaning out their house. 75 years of memories is very heart wrenching.

Adoptions and intakes are currently on hold while we try to regroup and get back on track. I hope you find the perfect life long companion for you and your family.

The people that have given me their personal info and pictures of their dogs to place on the website can be contacted directly.

Take care,
