Meet Obi

Obi, short for Oberon, is about 6-7 months old, solid black, except for a tiny speck of white on his chest, purebred Great Dane. He's crate trained and partially/mostly house-trained. I've had him at a public adoption event and he was good with people, and other dogs. We met a dog-savvy cat and he just sat down and ignored it. If a cat runs, results may vary. Smaller children have made him uncomfortable, so we will only allow him to go to a home without children, or with 'older', dog-savvy children.

Because he's a big dog, it's easy to forget that he's still a puppy and still has a lot of learn, but he's food-motivated and very trainable. When he encounters something that confuses him or something unfamiliar, his go-to move seems to be to sit and await further instruction. That's what he did with the cat and that's what he does when he doesn't understand what you want. I don't want to oversell him as a fully trained dog, but for a 6-7 month old puppy, he's come a long way.

He likes big balls and chew toys. He has made no attempt to climb or jump the fence and when he is out, he wants to be with a person or the other dogs. Obi will be neutered and fully vetted prior to adoption. He is available through Green Dogs Unleashed.

We are happy to consider applicants from out of state. However, if the applicant is approved, they must be willing to come to our location in Troy, VA, for a meet and greet. If all parties agree that the pup and family are a good fit, they would take the pup home at that time.

GDU does ask a minimum adoption donation of 300.00. This is a minimum donation and does not cover all expenses, as we are funded solely by the angels and volunteers willing to donate time and finances. This minimum donation includes DAPP, rabies if age appropriate,, heartworm test and preventative, if age appropriate, and flea and tick treatment, as well as neutering or spaying if the animal is medically sound to undergo surgery. This minimum donation does not even begin to cover the actual expenses each animal has while in rescue, but does go directly towards vet care for our rescue animals. In an attempt to avoid tummy upset from a sudden change of food, the foster family may include a small, transitional bag of the food the dog/puppy has been eating. And if the dog/puppy has grown attached to a special item (like a toy or blanket), they may send that along, as well.
