Senior Great Dane Who Was Just ‘A Bag Of Bones’ Goes Through Amazing Transformation

senior great dane goliath

A senior Great Dane named Goliath was “just a bag of bones” when surrendered by his family to an animal shelter. But after getting the love and attention he deserved, this sweet boy made a dramatic transformation!

In this video, we meet Goliath, an 11-year-old senior Great Dane. He was only 86lbs when he came to B.O.S.S. Farms, which is an animal rescue. They knew right away that they would need to feed him something that would help him gain a lot of weight.

The problem was that Goliath just didn't want to eat. The man from B.O.S.S. Farms says that, "He didn't want to eat. He had just been let down, so he needed someone to trust."

In the video, we can even see the senior Great Dane rejecting the food. However, things change and over time he starts to eat.

"As I would go to feed him, it would be more about connecting with him and letting him know, ‘I am taken care of.'"

Loves Transforms Senior Great Dane

Goliath became the grandpa to all the other rescue dogs coming in. We can see the puppies all sleeping on him. "He became the glue to the pack," the man says.

He did get up to 160 lbs and started looking really good. The inspiring senior Great Dane went to the Hallmark Rescue Dog Awards and won Best in Senior as well as appearing on the Kelly Clarkson show.

Goliath became attached to the man, and the man became attached to Goliath. So much so that the man from the rescue ended up adopting him. He was now officially his dog. The new owner says, "he gets whatever he wants in this lifetime."

They call him their BFG, Big Friendly Goliath.

Sadly we find out at the end of the video that Goliath has passed away as we see a photo with the words, "In Loving Memory of Goliath." He was 14 years old and it is nice to know that he lived the last few years of his life in peace with wonderful and loving people.
