Having behavioural problems?
At the moment you probably feel that the situation with your dog is irresolvable. However all behavioural problems can at least be managed and most can be completely cured. Even aggression. You may be thinking that your dog needs to live somewhere without another dog/without children/on a farm. These places don't exist and it is your responsibility to deal with your dog's problems, not someone else's.
If you have watched programmes like 'It's Me or the Dog' and 'The Dog Listener' you will have seen what seems like miracle cures and maybe thought that it cannot be true. However these programmes are not exaggerated, and if you can learn how to see things from your dogs point of view you can help your own dog and achieve a similar result. This is not to say that it will not require time and effort on your part - it most certainly will.
A good Canine Behaviourist will be able to quickly train you to resolve the behavioural problems you are experiencing with your dog. If you are prepared to put in the effort, you should seek advice and assistance from a qualified Canine Behaviourist in your area NOT a dog trainer. Select someone from the UK Registry of Canine Behaviourists or the Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors. The cost is usually around £300
Does your dog deserve the financial commitment and time? Presumably you love your dog, so if you are not prepared to put in this sort of effort can you really expect someone who has not even met your dog to do it? Rescues should not be a dumping ground for lazy owners.
All that said, we never refuse to take in any Great Dane ( unless their quality of life has already been irreversibly compromised ) and we will not judge you if you decide to gift in your Dane. We are Great Dane experts and love our breed. The quality of care and rehabilitation that we provide is second to none, so if you have decided to part with your Dane please contact us rather than gift them to another rescue that cannot provide this standard of care and such a rigorous vetting procedure for potential new homes.
