Shelter animals often have a difficulty in finding a new loving home. Goliath the Great Dane also faced this problem. After being surrendered to the shelter no one wanted to adopt a nine-year-old giant because of his size.

It comes as no surprise since the Great Dane is one of the largest dog breeds in the world. Although they are good-natured and calm, they need a lot of space and food that is why not every household can keep a Great Dane.

When the 7-foot, 150-pound doggie arrived at Reversed Rescue, he was extremely emaciated and his bones could be seen through his skin. But animal rescuers Friis and Kanaka decided to prepare a special surprise for the gentle giant.

They spent a day with Goliath giving him all the love and attention he deserves.

First, the doggie was taken to a pet store, where Friis and Kanaka bought him everything he touched. The big haul included all sorts of things from stuffed toys to treats.

"I think this is the bulk bar, not the buffet bar, buddy,' Triis told Goliath as as they were in the aisle of cookies.

And of course, Goliath made a beeline for the dog bones and chose one of the biggest bones in the store.
