    I breed Bernese Mtn Dogs in the Seattle area. Everyone who is in giant breeds on the west coast knows that Gentle Giants is a dog brokering SCAM. They have people producing the supposedly rescued pups sold purposely - when a breeding dog is done breeding they then "rescue" it and sell it.

    Money making SCAM.

    If you want a giant breed dog, either go through a breed specific rescue OR through a responsible breeder.

    Please do not support SCAM "rescues".

    SCAM! These statements prove that this is all about the "sale" not adoption, beware! Check your local animal shelter, or even better, check your local Great Dane rescues.

    "Our Gentle Giants do not require much exercise or much space, they eat just a little bit more than smaller dogs, and they are the #1 apartment dogs in most cities."

    "Adoption Fees: We are a charitable, non-profit corporation. Our adoption fees range from $490.00 to $990.00 based upon our costs involved with each dog for the neuter/spay, shots, temperament testing, training, care up until the dog is adopted, transportation costs bringing the dog in, special surgical procedures, and our overall cost of operation. There are very few dogs, if any, whose adoption fee is $490.00, and there are very few dogs, if any, whose adoption fee is $990.00. Almost all of our adoption fees are somewhere in between."

    After seeing their website I wouldn't get a dog from them if you paid me. They are CLEARLY breeding dogs as they constantly have several litters of puppies, lots of "unique mixes", and a good supply of rare breeds available for "adoption." There are multiple websites dedicated to educating people on the true nature of these "rescuers". They claim to have adopted out over 300 dogs in one year, only from their home, which is an outrageous number. Rescues with much larger areas of service and more fosters routinely place half that number or less.

    ADD: also, anyone selling "structured water" as they do, is either extremely ignorant or a complete scammer.

    No experience with them and they would be the LAST place I adopt from. I assume you mean the "rescue" run by Burt Ward and his wife. Yeah if you haven't seen their website and been instantly turned off by them I suggest you stroll over there.

    Puppymll posing as a rescue.

    http://www.gentlegiantsrescue.com/ does this REALLY look like the site of a reputable rescue run by TWO people?

    no personal experience just some list moaning that my breed is one they "rescue". The requirement that you by THEIR food for not just the dog you get from them but every dog in the house least their dog get a smigion of something else (excuse) smacks of ripoff in capital letters....

    Puppy mill for sure. Why not just check out your local shelter? Im sure you'll fall in love with a big dog there. They have so many.
