Look at all the big beautiful doggies...   :(

This makes me kinda sad for some reason - probably because when I first heard of them, they seemed pretty cool to me.  I probably would have attempted to adopt from them at some point, had I not been exposed to some of the other information out there about them...   

Maybe I just feel kind of stupid and naive for not knowing better...  And for not knowing the right way to spell naive.

Awww Honey.  Don't feel bad.  And when spelling naive just spell it both ways that way they don't know if it's a typo.   ;D

It's neat to see all those giant breeds, but that doesn't make me warm up to the Wards at all.

I can't get the video to play on my computer, but no matter what it said it couldn't make me like that group. I have heard terrible things about them.

Yeah I had a long list of all the things that they said that were BS.  Like how NONE of their dogs drool, and how they ALL live 14 -18 years.  But the computer ate it.

Once an actor, always an actor. But they have the lines down pat and sound convincing.

i've never heard of these guys before whats the deal i sort of looked at the web site it looks more like they are selling bad dog food with lots of filler than adopting out dogs.  bold claim of 18 plus yrs of life for there pets when they've only been around 11 yrs

I wonder if they received permission from Huell Howser or KCET to air the copyrighted video on their website......

Oh Please!!!!!!  I have heard so many terrible things about GG.  I was like you Grump - I saw thier website and thought it was pretty cool and what great people they were until I started to do more research!!!  They were under a big investigation and I know there was a big group of rescue people who were trying to get this show off the air. 

Is "Bucket of water mouth" a scientific term..  Could could see those dogs drooling on camera!!!

I am a little confused,  are these bad people? I have never heard of them. In the video they appear to be very caring. The dogs look happy. What's the deal?

There have been some very questionable things going on at GG - according to some people.

Oh my lord... taken right from the GG website...

""our unique 'one-of-a-kind' Gentle Giants, such as our very rare “Doodle” a giant Great Dane/Poodle who looks like a Great Dane when he is shaved and groomed, but looks like a giant "Super Poodle" when his fur grows out. Also, check out our amazing "Woodle" an Irish Wolfhound/Poodle, our funloving "BorzAf" a beautiful Borzoi/Afghan, and our breathtaking "Great DaNewfé" a Great Dane/Newfoundland.""

What kind of a rescue BREEDS their rescued dogs.  ??? Pathetic.  >:(

Those aren't dogs that they bred.  They are rescues.
