Meet Iris!


Iris is a sweet 8 mo old puppy. She is very gentle but is still just a baby so she can get a little over-excited at times and needs positive redirection on being gentle when playing with her smaller foster siblings. She is very curious and still needs supervision at all times if she is not in her crate. She is very food motivated and will help herself to whatever she can access if not being watched.

Iris is very smart and knows how to open the pantry doors and help herself…yep she’s a smart one! She was underweight when she first arrived and is now up to 75lbs.

Iris will need to eat in her crate or separate from any other pets as she is not fond of sharing her food. She walks well on a leash and knows how to sit and shake. She loves to play with toys and balls. She also has a fascination with stealing socks and chewing on them so you will need to pick those socks up! She likes to eat ice cubes and loves her whimsies and biscuits.

Iris currently has another dane puppy and 3 smaller dogs to play with and loves to get them to chase her. She definitely would benefit from a home with another larger dog for companionship. She does not like to be alone but is ok as long as there is another dog present. When she is not being curious and is ready to settle down, she turns into a big baby who just wants to be touching and cuddling up to you. She came from a home with teenagers and loves the 15 yr old son in her foster home. There are no small children in her foster home, but she seems to be fascinated by them and wants to go up to them when out in public. She is a super sweet, smart girl looking for her forever home! Previous giant breed experience is required as well as a fenced yard.

She is being fostered i Fort Mill SC.
