It’s not easy for a shelter dog to find their forever family, especially if you’re a nine-year-old Great Dane. This is exactly what happened to shelter dog Goliath.
Tye Friis is the founder of Reversed Rescue, a non-profit dog rescue in Leona Valley, California. He shared the story of Goliath, who was turned into his dog rescue.
This Great Dane was abandoned at the age of nine. Yes, the alleged “family of him” delivered him to a shelter where he arrived almost in the bones. and, surely, scared, without understanding why they suddenly got rid of him.
When he arrived, he was emaciated and could see the bones in his body. No one wanted to adopt him because of his size.
Great Danes are as tall as 32 inches at the shoulder and are taller than most other dog breeds. While they have gentle temperaments, they require a lot of special care because of their size.
He was about to find out who was going to adopt him
Rocky Kanaka and, of course, the happy news of his adoption 🙂 Kanaka asked Triis who was going to adopt Goliath. Triis answered, “I am. I can’t let him go.”
This is the best Christmas present Goliath could receive!
Reversed Rescue and Kanaka decided to spend one fun day with Goliath, giving him all the love and attention he deserves.
They brought him to a pet store to buy him everything he touched. Goliath had a great time running around the store with Friis and Kanaka.
His nose touched different toys, including a stuffed elephant that they put right into a shopping cart.
He touched a case of canned dog food on the floor of the store, and Kanaka included it into their growing cart of doggie goods.
At the end of their fun trip, they had a shopping cart full of treats, bones, and toys.
