This pretty boy Angel came to us from Edinburgh after his previous owners discarded him. He came to us in pretty rough shape - severely emaciated with some growths on him and about 1,000 ticks - yuk! It took us a quite a while to get him feeling better! Angel is 5-6 years old and his best friend is an 8# maltipoo!!!

Angel is going to be a special placement. He will require pain meds for the rest of his life due to bridging in his spine. We can not begin to guarantee how long his life span will be, but what we can guarantee is that every day you spend with him will be good for you!

Angel doesn’t care that he isn’t as mobile as other dogs. He LOVES to play with his wubbas and carry his toys around with him! He loves to play fetch and can often be found happily just following his foster mom around while she does chores. Because of his limited mobility he needs a few adaptations. He would do best in a home that is mostly carpeted, or a family willing to put down rugs to help him navigate would be best for him. Also a family who will be diligent about ensuring he gets his meds. He wouldn’t be best in a home with very young children because he can not be hung off of, laid on, or bounced off of. He would do great with another dog or dogs in the home as long as they are not too rambunctious.

Angel’s adoption fee is 250.00 that includes his neuter surgery, microchip, and vaccines. If you are interested in Angel please fill out the application located at www.texasgreatdane.org and his foster mom will get in touch with you.

This organization sells dogs at "Unleashed by Petco" in the Northwoods Shopping Center in San Antonio. They display the dogs outside on the sidewalk and complete the paperwork inside the store. They said they rescue these dogs from shelters. I adopted one such dog from them on April 30th, and they did not adequately clean and treat the dog’s health issues prior to sale, nor did they disclose health issues. When contacted following the purchase (via email as they have no phone number on their paperwork), their delay in their responding, their lack of response to specific issues, and their excuses and aggressiveness led to this complaint. I contacted Petco - they claim no liability or service breech despite the adoption form being on Petco letterhead and taking place inside their store. First, the dog was heart worm positive, and they did not disclose this verbally. I realized it when filling out the adoption paperwork after spending an hour with the dog. They gave me three pills and told me not to worry, claiming the medicine they provided would resolve the issue. They said it was no "big deal". Having no experience or knowledge of heart worm, I was concerned, but I believed them. I then contacted them via email the same day I purchased the dog asking about behaviors such as scratching, rubbing his right ear against the ground, shaking his head, scratching his body, and an excessive amount of dandruff/skin dryness and flakiness. After no response, I took the dog to a vet and emailed them again with the findings. I also found their phone number online and left them a voice mail. They did not respond. The vet said the pills they offered are not sufficient for heart worm treatment and the cost and time needed were lengthy and expensive (over $1000 and more than 6 months worth of blood tests, treatment, and follow up testing). I called 3 other vets to confirm this information. The vet also said the dog had an ear infection and dermatitis. When I adopted the dog, the sellers, Great Dane Rescue, provided "free" health insurance for one month. The insurance company said none of these conditions are covered given they were pre-existing and disclosed at the time of purchase. After a second email, I received a reply from them on May 2nd. The email claimed they provided all the heartworm treatment needed and did not address any of my other concerns regarding ear infection and dermatitis. Their response was that they provided all that was needed, and my vets were "only interested in [my] money". They stated I made a mistake in adopting him and should return him. "He is a rescue dog and lucky to be alive...return him...". In addition to numerous health issues that were not address, they failed to even bathe the dog prior to adoption. He was filthy and light grey instead of the brown/black I thought he was when I took him home. It took a long bath to get him clean and notice the cracked and flaking condition of his skin. The organization doesn’t seem to have them checked by a vet either as they had no clue he had an ear infection or skin problems. The paperwork indicates their "intake date" was on March 25th, had him neutered on 4/6, and I adopted him on 4/28. They had adequate time to clean him and have a vet check out his health. All the communication with them post purchase are in email, and I can forward the document if needed. I see no way to attach the document here. Overall, stay away from this organization. As I call various rescue groups and vets, I've had others tell me they don't work with this organization because of similar issues. And they don't want to solve the problems and care for the dog's well-being. They won't talk to you on the phone. They simply say via email, give back the dog next weekend at Petco. Shame on them and shame on Petco for allowing them in store.
