Justice Great Dane Rescue:

Adopted my dear Great Dane years ago from Justice Great Dane Rescue.
Her name was "Roxy", a brindle Great Dane "Girlie".

I changed Roxy's name to: "Roxima Maxima".

Roxima Maxima has always been a Wonderful Companion.

Loves her 'in the park time' and her 'walkabout time'.

Roxima Maxima is excellent 'in-house' Great Dane.

Roxima Maxima works well with commands like clockwork.

At first, Roxima Maxima wanted to bark at everything.
Was very excited by bicycle riders , people with backpacks,
or quick arm movements.
Separation anxiety.

We worked on all of these issues every day.
Always made our progress in a positive manner.
For some reason people can be very frightened by Great Danes.
Just their size I guess.

An owner always has to continue with the training.
Patience, Repetition, and Validation.
Always.

Roxima Maxima is a calm dedicated compatriot without further ado.
For so long.

Roxima Maxima is dedicated to me, an alone Senior.

And regularly concerned with her kitty friend Little Chai.
Cares invariably to know where Little Chai is and that she is OK.

Very Attentive to my Disabilities and Emotional State.

Was a Big Dog Breed person my whole life, so much experienced.
With Great Danes as well.

People forget Great Danes are a very big Hound Dog.
Can be very Sensitive and sometimes a"Scooby-Do".
Understand this about Great Danes.

Handled properly Great Danes are a Velcro Dog.

Roxima Maxima is a Velcro Dog.
The "Best-est"!

Hugs from all of us here.

Thank you Justice Great Dane Rescue.
Forever.

We first heard about JGDR when we started looking for another Great Dane to adopt. While we were interested in an adult, we ended up with a puppy, and we couldn't be happier. We began going to JGDR events, and eventually started volunteering. Volunteering was so fulfilling that I wanted to become even more involved with the organization, and eventually became a Board Member and foster. I've worked with a lot of nonprofits, and JGDR is one of the most transparent, well-run organizations I've had the chance to work with. The well-being and health of the dogs is a top priority, and the application process ensures that dogs stay in the homes they are adopted to. My husband and I will continue to work with and help out JGDR in any capacity that we can.

After losing 3 dogs in 3 years my wife and I could not think we could take the heartache of loving and losing another dog. So i decided we would become Fosters. We have had all sizes of dogs but loved the big guys. After researching several rescue operations I decided to contact Justice Great Dane Rescue. It has been the most rewarding 4 months ever. We applied as fosters and they came to our house and /'checked us out/' Very professional organization. Obviously we were passed and never looked back. We have our 4th and 5th dogs in 4 months and could not be happier. If there is a medical issue with the dogs. Ronnie, The 2nd in command of the organization comes right over to check them out at any time. If they are deemed to need to see a vet an appointment is set up the next day. I could go on. But suffice to say as opinionated as I am. I don't believe Nicole and Ronnie could possibly do a better job.

We first heard about Justice Great Dane Rescue from our son who adopted a one year old female Dane. We feel in love with her and decided to adopt our own senior Dane. JGDR required us to fill out an adoption application, did a home visit and checked our references before we were able to adopt. They discussed which Dane would be a good match for our family. We adopted Taos, a five year old, last November. He has become a great member of our family. I have recommended JDGR to my friends who want to adopt. Justice Great Dane Rescue care about their foster dogs!!

I had only slightly considered adopting or fostering a Great Dane until I encountered JGDR. I spoken with several other rescues regarding different breeds but once meeting Nicole and this organization, I really felt how involved and caring all the volunteers are about their work. So far the rescue has made it very easy to foster and I'm sure equally as easy for anyone to adopt. Fostering with JGDR has been a great experience and they have been very helpful.

I have adopted rescue dogs from several other organizations, but I appreciate the thoroughness and professionalism with which Justice screens their potential adopters. Ronnie from Justice actually came out to do a home check (the other rescue groups never did) and my references received calls; again this was not done by the other groups. I have now become a volunteer for Justice because of this, and I am impressed with the other volunteers as I get to know them. Everyone has full time jobs, but they are truly dedicated to doing everything in their power to save these wonderful dogs.

I am both a volunteer and client. My Brenna came from Justice. She is just the most wonderful addition to our family. Before coming to Justice, she had been used as a breeder and had heartworms. They got her healthy and I adopted her. She is a lovely dog and I am so thankful that they saved her.

Since adopting Brenna, I have driven several Danes as a transport volunteer. I have seen the horrible condition these dogs are in when they are pulled from kill shelters. Some are totally emaciated and covered in ticks and/or fleas. The after pictures of these dogs always amaze me. It is almost unbelievable that these are the same dogs that I transported ss they were first coming into Justice Rescue.

We have adopted two Great Danes from Justice Great Dane Rescue. Our first adoption came to JGDR from a situation that found him malnourished and covered with ticks. He was treated professionally and placed with a foster family to await adoption into a forever home. We provided that for him. Today Paco is a healthy, happy Great Dane. Our second adoption was a female Dane whose military family was unable to take her overseas. Diva provides a spirited, playful companion for Paco. In both cases, Justice provided careful professional assistance to ensure that the dogs were placed in an environment suited to their long-term health and happiness.

I adopted my sweet pup from Justice Great Dane Rescue on the recommendation of a previous client who we ran into walking his Dane. Nicole and Ronnie's expertise and care in helping us to find the best Dane for our family was invaluable!!! Not only did they pair us with the sweetest dog I'd ever met, who became an instant and integral part of our family, but Nicole continued to check in on me and Gracie as we got her used to her new home. Every time we had a question or concern, we knew that JGDR was there to support us. In return, we are now enthusiastic supporters of them. We take our Gracie to nearly every event that they hold, and encourage admirers of our Dane to look into this organization. Gracie is the first, and certainly not the last Dane that we have owned and we're so glad that JGDR is there to match these "cuddle bugs" with great families that they can love. Additionally, there is no pressure to adopt any particular Dane...the dog's best fit is their main concern. We had wanted to adopt another dog from JGDR, and when our chosen new Dane was not a good fit for Gracie, JGDR was there, yet again, to support us as we had to conclude our test drive with him early and consider a different Dane or a one-Dane-household for the time. Justice Great Dane Rescue is an exceptional organization, and we are so thankful that we stumbled upon them!

I am a volunteer, a foster, a board member, a donor and a champion for Justice Great Dane Rescue. I cannot even begin to describe how passionately I feel about this organization and the people in it. There are so many incredible people working so very hard every day to help Great Danes in need. They give up their free time, their weekends and often sacrifice their time with their families all to give these dogs a second chance. My hat is off to all of them and I thank them all from the bottom of my heart for the time and effort that they put in for these animals.

I have been a volunteer & donor with Justice Great Dane Rescue of Albuquerque, NM since the fall of 2012 when I reached out for help for a stray/abandoned Great Dane in Farmington. Since that time I have made numerous road trips for this great organization, driving Danes in need from my area to Albuquerque to the capable & dedicated folks with Justice. The people at the helm of the organization are amazing & are always ready to step up to help. Undertaking the rescue & care of such large dogs is no simple task & most of the dogs I have transported for the organization have had significant health problems, some have also had behavioral issues to be addressed. Justice Great Dane Rescue is always up to the challenge & from the moment they get the call for help, through the vetting & fostering processes, until the dogs in their charge are adopted following their extensive adoption screening process, they do everything & anything necessary to see that these beauties go on to live happy, healthy lives.

I am in the midst of preparing for a drive tomorrow to get yet another Dane in need to the loving, caring folks with Justice Great Dane Rescue. I want to say that it is a privilege to be associated with the organization & to contribute just the smallest bit to their mission.

justice Great Dane is amazing rescue doing amazing work for these amazing creatures. I've been fostering for about 3 months now and love each and every one of the dogs that have come into my home. I enjoy helping and teaching these large canines what it's like to live and be a part of the family and helping them I just until they get their forever home.I wish I could do more as a volunteer or with money for them because they work they do for these dogs is very important.

In 2011 we were so very fortunate to become part of the foster family for Justice Great Dane Rescue. We had never been involved in a rescue before and didn't know what to expect. From the first meeting it was a very professional and a relaxed atmosphere. We fostered for about a year and then became a foster failure, that is when you adopt the foster dog you are caring for. We are still involved with the rescue, if you can't foster the rescue can always use donations either with money or dog items. I highly recommend being involved it is such a rewarding experience!

My husband and I started out fostering for Justice Great Dane Rescue a little over two years ago. We quickly saw what an impact they have and became much more involved. The people we have encountered through the rescue have become a huge part of our life. We adopted one of our foster dogs and continue to foster. Love the work this rescue does!
