Welcome to Daneline
Sue and Lissi have been owners of Great Danes for over forty years; they have been rescuing and rehoming Great Danes throughout the UK since 1968.
Daneline uses 'foster' homes all over the UK instead of kennels while we find the right homes for the dogs. The 'foster parents' provide local help and advice throughout the adoption as well as providing a vital link in the aftercare service.
All Danes gifted into Daneline Great Dane Rescue are assessed in an approved and fully supported foster home, NOT in kennels. Every Dane is taken to a vet within a few days to have a comprehensive health check, i.e. heart, eyes, ears, teeth, legs, hips, anal glands and weighed. The Dane is then wormed, flead and vaccinated. Our Danes are weighed weekly to enable us to monitor their progress.
All necessary operations are done as a matter of course. The Danes leave us with a new collar and lead, vaccination card, health history, five days food, a comprehensive information pack and a contract which also details all we have done and any other relevant behavioural support if required. During the time a Great Dane is in our care we assess their temperament and any behavioural problems or training that needs to be addressed, i.e. recall and behaviour on and off lead, socialization with other dogs, children, visitors and livestock, separation anxiety, possessive behaviour or aggression over food and toys and any other quirks, likes or dislikes. Lastly, and by no means least, their manners.
This comprehensive assessment enables us to match each Dane to its new home.
Hello friends! As Christmas is coming we thought it would be a good idea to sell a few unique and beautiful embroidered Christmas cards with Great Danes on. The profit of nearly £1.00 will be going towards the nearly £3,000 vets bill for Poker, who has just had a cruciate op. Each card is slightly different and costs £5.99 inclusive of P&P. The cards are 6x4" in dimensions and come with an envelope. We feel they are so good that they can be sent either just as a card, or framed as a gift. If you have a preference for a Dane colour from Blue, Black, Fawn or Harli, you can choose with the drop-down menu. First come first served, there are 19 cards in total.
Also, here are our new tabard Dane coats. We are hoping that the coats will help to enlighten the public of the plight of some of our dogs and maybe help with fundraising and rehoming - fingers crossed. We would like to thank Michelle from Boomerjacks Collars and Leads for making the coats for free, and to V.M.R. Printers in Bristol who very kindly printed them, also for free.

Hello everyone! I'm Lennox. I used to live with travellers with a very bossy Dane boy called Amos and a little deaf bitch called Sky, who seems to have had lots of puppies. I am now living with my foster mum and her 2 children...Read more...
