eet Our own deaf
Dane  Ambassador


    RIP Max(Asher)
    We got word in 2009 that Max (Asher) developed a seizure disorder,
    which got bad enough that they had to have him PTS.

    Max Has A New Home!

6/7/04 Asher (Max) has a new buddy!  Asher's folks also adopt Bones.

Max, whose new name is Asher, was a very special case for us. Max was on our waiting list, waiting for a space to open up here for him, when we read Tricia's story of the loss of her deaf Dane pup. We do not place pups, but we felt this was a unique situation. Max needed to get into rescue, or into a home. And Tricia was grieving over the loss of her deaf Dane, Lucas. After much discussion we decided to offer Tricia the chance to adopt Max imediately. Although she had originally indicated she would not be getting another deaf Dane, when we contacted her, she was very interested. So, even though it bent most of our rules to the breaking point, we arranged for Tricia to adopt Max without him ever coming here to us. This was essentially a one time only exception, but it was clear to all of us that this was not only the right thing to do, but that it was meant to be. We are proud to have been able to be a part of this adoption. As you can see from the update photos above, Asher is living La Dolce Vita, and is a very loved little puppy. And he is helping Tricia deal with the loss of Lucas. A win-win situation, as they say.
