    Bailey (Great Dane) Needs A Home

    I thought I would post this on here first, before I contact a rescue. We need to find Bailey a home ASAP, we can't find a rental that will allow us to keep him. He turned a year old on December 9th, is not neutered, very well behaved, loves every dog/cat/person he meets. Most of you already know Bailey, so if someone here can give him a home I would be greatful.

    We live in Surrey, BC and he is currently at the vet clinic. The only adoption fee I am asking for is the money to pay for the kenneling, I think it's roughly $20-30 per day. Please let me know if any of you can take him or know of a rescue that can - it has to be soon since he's been at the clinic since the 27th.

    We really have no choice and are extremely heartbroken. But we need a home, and can't seem to find one that will let us keep Bailey.

    PM me for contact info.

    We are staying with my sister, but there is no room for him here.

    I agree totally.. I am trying to figure out who it was as a Pt'r that wanted another dane that lived there.. Modify your title like Bailey the dane... Maybe that will flush them out.. I know this is heart breaking. Having large dogs, housing can be very hard, and the joke is, the bigger dogs are calmer than the smaller ones..

    It's only been a few days since the fire, are you sure you can't find a house to rent, or find someplace? I can't imagine you have had time to searc every rental available in those few days, maybe you could try to give it a little more time, or try to find a temporary foster?? I dunno I just think it's so sad and I really want for you to be able to find a place and sometimes it just takes a little longer.

    Thanks Jess for the great sig of my kids!

    We have asked everyone we know if they can foster, and they can't. We have searched all the local papers, websites etc. It is costing $20-30 per day to kennel Bailey and that is money we don't have right now.

    This fire was not your fault- there is a responsible insurance company behind something here. Can you find out who they are? Also- maybe your vet would help and board them. If you have been a client for a while, they might just do that. Also- maybe the breeder could take the dog for a little while to board- I know I would!

    And check with great dane rescue. Here in the states, most rescues could find a foster home.

    I'd foster him if I didn't already have a foster here..

    Try http://brindleweb.com/rescuebb It's a forum for BC Rescues. I'm sure they'd be able to find a foster home.

    I am so sorry.

    Have you tried contacting Bailey's breeder? If not, I'd give that a try. Most good breeders will take a dog back if need be and under special circumstances (like yours) some will even keep the dog until the original owner is able to take it back.

    I can't foster and I'm too far away anyhow. I hope you're able to find someone who can foster him for a bit instead of finding him a new home.

    I was wondering about the breeder too. I took a shepherd back for two months when the owner had bi pass surgery..
