Great Danes Left For Dead Making Remarkable Progress

Great Dane sisters Paddy and Shellie are doing much better today after the two were left for dead in the Croatan National Forest in Craven County last month.

The dogs, who had their first reunion Monday, have come a long way since we last saw them. Each dog has gained weight and both are very happy dogs.

Last time we saw the sisters back in November, Paddy tried to play but Shellie was too weak. Then Shellie weighed 55 pounds and Paddy weighted 60 pounds. Both the dogs have continued to gain weight, they're each at least 30 pounds heavier.

As far as adoption, Shellie and Paddy need to get healthier before they are spayed and they cannot be adopted until then.

Animal Control is still looking for the individual that dumped these dogs back in November. Anyone with information is asked to call Craven Pamlico Animal Services at 252-637-4606.

    I think the person who left those dogs to die should be put in the same spot.As I see it these dogs are family member and should be treated that way. The person that did this should never be allowed to have any animal.I want to say thank you for the one who saved these dogs and all animals.

    Shellie is the most loving girl. She is growing into a beautiful Dane, and the way she loves to hug. Some family is going to thank the lord everyday that she was not PTS...I know I wish I have 10 of her!

      I'm glad these two girls were found, and that they were lucky to have someone to care for each of them. I have two Dane boys, Adonis is 9yrs and Anubis is 2yrs, and they are very much a part of my family. We celebrate their birthdays and they enjoy the holiday right along with us. I can't imagine what kind of person(s) would do soemting like this to these two beautiful girls. I can only hope that the humans that left the girls don't have children, because just imagine what they are learning about treatment of animals.

    Wow! I cannot believe someone is that cruel to want to destroy these dogs! I think they need to be rescued themselves.

      "If it were me...." Seems you have never known the love of a Dane.... such a shame that you haven't. However.... I am so glad that I am NOT you. This is as peaceful as I can keep it.... I really have other words for you.

        You obviously never seen a Great Dane rip up somebody's arm or nearly kill another dog.

      Who asked you? Nobody asked for your opinion. Did your mother never teach you that if you have nothing nice to say. Not to say it at all. Its obvious you had a messed up childhood. Get some professional help!
