Update on abused Great Dane

I thought you all would like to know that Baby, the female Great Dane my daughter rescued, has gained over 10 lbs. and is a very happy girl.
Here's a picture of her on the couch with her friend, Heidi, a Beagle and Australian Shepherd mix. My son-in-law is on the other end of the pillow.
Check out the size of those paws.

Oh, she's a sweetheart, Kitchenelf. She rubs that big head against you, and would get in your lap if she could. She could get your head in her mouth, if she wanted to, but I don't think she's got a mean bone in her body. My daughter says she seems as grateful for the lovin' as much as the food.
Speaking of food, daughter cannot get over how much the dog can eat. I had warned her, because I have a friend who has danes, but still, she was flabbergasted. I'm saving good scraps for her...it always makes me feel better not to waste food.

Connie,
that dog is beautiful. I love danes,german shepards and of course doxies. The pooch sure looks content and happy. How wonderful to have a home, a warm bed, food to eat and family to love and protect you. I'm sure this wonderful animal will return the favor in many ways. Bless your daughter and son-in-law for what they have done.

Thank you, Wasabi. When she was going through her teenage years, there were a lot of times I wondered, but my daughter has turned out to be a good woman, and I am very proud of her.

I was scared to open this thread because I was afraid of a sad story but this gives me great joy! I've had 2 Danes and they were wonderful lapdogs.

He looks so content. Thank your daughter from all of us animal lovers.
