Elzee's Story...
NOTE: You can see my video at this link:

Hi! I’m Elzee!

I am a small female Harlequin. I’m often told how pretty I am, even with a heart shape on my back.

I am approximately 2-3 years old.

I was given up to a shelter by my former owner. I had a litter of puppies. I was still producing milk and developed mastitis. I was severely underweight, weighing 79 lbs (I’m now at 86lbs!). I was covered in fleas and had raw patches from scratching. I had a “happy tail” and is in pretty bad case so, my tail will be amputated any day now.

I am house-trained (when I need to go potty, I cry to let you know)

I am crate-trained.

I have not exhibited any separation anxiety.

I live with three canine siblings (all Great Danes) and I have never shown any guarding issues on anything.

I get along just fine with other dogs and do enjoy playing with them, but I must say that I do enjoy being a loner.

I’m a mellow gal who lays around most of the time. I love to play with my stuffed bear named “Baby”. I like to sleep with my Baby bear and I will not let other dogs take my Baby bear. Please be aware that I have no guarding issue at all. I simply put my paw or my head over my Baby bear if the other dogs are interested in my Baby bear. If they succeed in taking my Baby bear, I will gently take my Baby bear back and lay down with it.

You see, just a short time ago, I didn’t know what toys, much less how to play or sleep with them. Until I was introduced to my Baby bear. Maybe it’s because I’m missing my babies (puppies).

I like cats but I do ignore them. If the cat instigates me to chase him, I will chase him. If you tell me “no”, I will immediately stop chasing.

My nifty foster momma says that I know these commands:
Lay down
Get off
Stay (I will stay until you say “ok”)
Kennel (to go into my crate)

As mentioned earlier, I didn’t know what toys were. I’m slowly learning on how to play with toys. I just learned how to play with the rope. See me at this link:

I’ll need a little help in learning not to pull during the walk. Will you help me?

Like most human ladies, I do have a tendency to talk (bark) too much. I’m happy to report that I’ve been showing restraint on not talking too much.

I love car ride! Once I entered into the car, I’ll immediately jump onto the front seat and help co-pilot. I need to learn that it is not legal for me to co-pilot and be seated in the back seat. Who came up with these stupid rules?!?

During petting, I have a tendency to mouth the hands. When I do that, I’d do a “love nibbles”. I honestly didn’t know that can hurt and that makes me feel bad. I’ve been working hard on not giving “love nibbles” but, I do need to be reminded. Especially with little children!

I LOVE to be on the couch but, it’s against the rescue policy. I need to be reminded not to be on the couch ——- unless you don’t mind me on your couch!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Elzee, a St. Louis Great Dane dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Great Dane for sale in St. Louis, or seeking a Great Dane dog from a breeder in St. Louis.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in St. Louis already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a St. Louis breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Great Dane breeders who help with Great Dane rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in St. Louis paves the way for another one to be saved.
