Hi!

My name is Mila.

I am a black 2 1/2 years old spayed female purebred Great Dane.

I was surrendered by my owners, because they didn’t have time for me.

Sadly, I was very hungry and very skinny. Thanks to my foster momma, she helped me gained weight and have a wonderful female figure!

I wasn’t very well socialized before I was surrendered. Now that I have foster canine siblings, I learned to play with them.

Like some people, some dogs can be very moody and just wants to be left alone. Guess what, me too! Because ever since I learned to play by myself, I discovered that I actually enjoy it! Now, I love to pick up a ball and toss it in the air by myself! Better yet, I actually prefer being an only dog!

I am potty trained as long as I’m not on a concrete floor.

I like women and am warm to all women I meet. I do like men but, sometimes, men kind of scares me. Probably because men are generally quick-moving human being.

I love teenagers, but I’m not very good with younger than 15 yrs old kids. Probably because they’re even fast-moving human beings compared to men!

I know the following commands: “Sit”, “Lay Down”, “Shake”, and “Leave It!”

I will learn anything you want me to learn as long as you provide me treats. I am VERY food/treat driven!

Due to my zoomies, play and run around, I greatly benefit with a fenced in backyard.

I LOVE going out for walks! With a Gentle Leader, I’m a great walker and I never pull!

I am crate-trained. I’m not thrilled with it because I was forced to be in it for 12+ hours before I was surrendered. Yes, that was very mean thing to do to a dog! My foster momma understands that and doesn’t crate me anymore because I’ve proven that I can be trusted in a room, like my own sanctuary room.

I’m always curious on what’s on the countertop in the kitchen. So far, I’m not a counter-surfer.

I’m in the middle of taking training classes.

Like many good dogs (and Great Danes), I am an alert barker. I have to let my family know when there’s someone at the front door or hear something unusual.

Beware! I have a tendency to moan! No, it’s not because I’m hurt. It’s because I’m comfortable! You see, whenever I’m laying down and change position, I’ll moan like a lion. My foster family thinks I’m funny!

I’m very big on receiving kisses as well as receiving praises and smiles from my family.

My foster momma says that I am SO LOVEABLE and I just want to please my family. Most importantly, I want and need to be loved in return.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mila, a Springfield 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 Springfield, or seeking a Great Dane dog from a breeder in Springfield.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Springfield 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 Springfield 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 Springfield paves the way for another one to be saved.
