The compassion that dogs can have for each other is just so amazing.
I really wish I could take them in.

If I didn’t already have 5 dogs and 4 cats I would certainly take them in.
I’m sure they’ll find a home.
I would take them in a second. When we lose our babies; health permitting, we are going to adopt older and disabled dogs.

Four GREAT pics at the link!
I'd take them in a hot-second, if I but had the room! These dogs need a BIG back yard to play in - definitely fenced.

Can’t imagine why.

The owner could no longer cope with what?
I’ve owned 2 great dames at once and would take both in a heartbeat but getting them to the states would not be easy and not to mention expensive.
Those are really pretty puppies, I hope they find a new home soon.
Btw, your tagline is excellent and very true.

Aren’t they beautiful! Danes are wonderful dogs. I hope that someone kind adopts them.

What a heart warming story! They deserve a good forever home together.
