Adopt a Dog
We appreciate all of the support of our followers and donors. We wanted to let you know just how much your donations help all of our Beasts here at the Villa!
Through your donations we are able to get every dog that we rescue up-to-date on all vaccinations and preventatives from our local Veternarian, Dr. Josh Von Szalatnay “Dr. Von”, at PetCare Animal Hospital of Newberry. Here we can make sure every animal is current on their rabies, hearthworm, flea/tick and spray/neutered, as well as any other emergencies that might arise.
Keeping bellies full and living quarters clean is no easy task when it comes to these continously growing, mud loving Beasts! We make sure our guys and gals are eating a well balanced, high protein diet to ensure healthy joint and bone development for these rapidly growing beasts. We only use all natural cleaning solutions on their original hardwood surfaces (they love those cool floors).
Lastly, our goal is to be able to provide and protect all GPs across America, currently we are able to drive 100s of miles to go pick up rescues and surrendered GPs in order to bring them back to the Villa, until we are ready to place them with their future farms. When we adopt out a dog we are able to take them all the way to their new farm ourselves, this is our property inspection to make sure the dogs are going to be in a happy and healthy environment and that it will be a suitable fit for all parties/animals involved.
We do not charge a rehoming fee for any animals we are adopting out, due to our mission of wanting to grow and sustain small homesteads. We want to give back to the small farmers who are in desperate need of these amazing guys and gals to keep their homestead and livestock safe!
For this our rehoming fee is a smiling face and a wagging tail as we are leaving! I know this may be a bit strange, but how do you put a price tag on protecting the ones you love!
Adopting Vs Buying
While it goes without saying adopting or buying a dog is a lifelong commitment, the benefits of adopting an animal in need outweighs the “perfection” of a bred dog for sale. By adopting you are saving more than just that one animal. You are making space for another dog in need to find their forever home. What you will see of most dogs that are sold from breeders, they are confined into small spaces and not always given the best Veterinarian care. Shelters and rescues are all made up of people and professionals who love and care for animals and only want to see them succeed in life. Here at our rescue, we are all about giving these beasts the space and freedom they deserve to become the best guardians out there.
Is A Large Breed Dog Right For You?
There are many factors to take in to account when finding the perfect pet for you and your family, but even more so when bringing a large breed dog into the mix. While these larger-than-life animals grow rapidly, they stay in their puppy stage for a lot longer time period than typical breeds. They are continuously growing and need the right diet to ensure healthy growing joints and hips. Which also means they need ample space to run around and keep those joints moving. Although they are truly gentle giants, they can get carried away and need a firm handler who can keep a routine. Do you have what it takes to handle a large beast!
