Great Dane

A.K.A. : Deutsche Dogge, German Mastiff
Overview: The Great Dane is a huge dog with a sweet and gentle nature. He needs a lot of space for exercise, though he can be very calm and well-behaved indoors.
Breed Group: Working

Coat: Hair is short and smooth.
Character: Great Danes are affectionate, calm, loyal, and intelligent. Although they do not bark very much, they make great watch dogs.
Temperament: This breed gets along well with children, other dogs, and most household pets. They are usually wary around strangers, but are good with welcomed visitors.
Care: The Great Dane should be grooming with a rubber brush during periods of shedding.
Training: This breed grows quite large, so for an early lesson he should be trained not to pull on the leash. He's quite eager to please, so a proper approach should provide great results.

Country of Origin: Germany
Health Issue: The breed is prone to hip dysplasia, bloat, tumors, heart disease, and tail injuries.

More About Great Dane Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Breed: German Shepherd Dog-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog / Mixed (medium coat). When you meet Maggie (aka Mags, Mag Pie, Maggie May) you will fall in love with Maggie. She may look like any Shepard blend, but she is special. She was brought into ACS with two puppies, which were fortunate enough to get adopted as soon as they were of age. But as it tends to go, mama was left behind. I picked Maggie out the day before her last day at ACS. She was shy and super thin, clearly unhappy and desolate. I picked her up the next morning and found a dog that wasn''t accustomed to walking on a leash - she lay down and called it quits about 15 steps out of the building. We carried her to my car and I quickly came to find that she''d never been in a car either. Scared and overwhelmed are the best words to describe her that day. Things improved quickly. She made fast friends with my dog and she fell in love with all the attention showered upon her. She''s put on muscle and some weight, although she still has a few more pounds to go. And she''s happy! Mags can be found instigating play time with my dog several times a day. She''s finally getting to be the dog she''s never had the chance to be. She revels in giving kisses! She''s completely comfortable in her kennel. I don''t enclose her in it, as much as leave it open and let her use it as her safe space. She loves toys and dinnertime! When Maggie is excited to see you she''ll slightly head butt your hip or leg and if she''s feeling really playful, she nibbles at your clothes; never pulling or causing damage, just enough to say `play with me.` Mag Pie has a gentle way about her. She''s very social, has had no issue with anyone she''s come into contact with, especially other dogs! I''m not sure I can say the same thing for cats, so a home without cats would be best. As social as she is, she is still protective of her people and her space. Never causing any cause for concern with people clearly welcome, she will bark at anything out of the ordinary. Fostering her has been a joy. Watching her go from sad and shy to happy, healthy, and silly has made me proud to be part of the fostering program. I can''t wait to find her forever home! She deserves someone to call her own and would work well for someone who has a lot of love to shower on a recovering girl!

      Breed: Mutt

      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler / Mixed (medium coat). A note from Leilah''s foster mom: Australian Cattle Dogs are bred to herd sheep and other similar animals. Like any good herding dog, Leilah likes to nip at the heels of other dogs, cats, or anything else that looks to them like it should be gathered together and guarded. Though not an overly large breed, Leilah takes protecting her foster mom and pets very seriously. Ideally, Leilah will thrive on any property with a good-sized backyard that she can work, run, play, and jump as she is a high energy dog. Leilah gets along with some dogs so she would need a meet and greet with any other dogs. Leilah seems to get along with cats, when she''s not trying to nip them on the butt. Ideally, Leilah would make a great companion for someone living alone looking for a faithful companion! If Leilah sounds like your ideal family member, request a meet-and-greet with our loving girl today!

      Breed: Chihuahua-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (medium coat). A little about Hope from his foster family: Hope came to me in rough shape. He had hairloss all over his body from demodex mange. Don''t worry though, this type of mange is NOT contagious! After just two weeks in foster care, Hope has regrown much of his hair and is getting the spoiled life he deserves. Hope gets along with other dogs and is completely potty trained. He sticks right by your side when you take him out and if he does wander away in the yard he will come right back when called!

      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Senior
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Poodle (Miniature) / Mixed (medium coat). A note from Sugars foster family: Meet Sugar. She is approximately 12lbs. This poor little girl has had quite a few challenges to deal with, blindness, diabetes, and heart worms, but she has adapted amazingly! The diabetes we are managing with diet and small doses of insulin twice a day after each meal. She is not a barker, and she gets along with everyone (dogs and cats included). Her favorite things are hunting for food/treats, snuggling with her bear, and head and belly rubs. She has primarily been an indoor dog while under my care, but she does like to go outside to hunt any fallen or left over cat food. If you would like more information about Sugar, please let us know.
