Apollo's Story...
Apollo is a gorgeous, sweet, cuddly, strong, loyal and loving 20-month-old, 72-pound, male brindle and white Great Dane/Mastiff-mix with warm brown eyes looking for a loving temporary foster or permanent guardian.

Apollo is a leggy athlete who lost his human dad to gun violence in Chicago. Apollo loves every human he meets. He sidles up to you for snuggling and loves to play fetch. He lets you touch him anywhere from his big paws to his goofy lips and happily wagging tail; he is full of kisses and tail wags.

While typically calm and well-behaved in the home, Apollo rises to the occasion if there’s a rambunctious female dog wanting to play rough and tumble. He doesn’t have much use for large male dogs. For that reason, he may be best as the only dog in the home, or with a mellow yet playful large female dog.

This boy has amazing eye contact and loves to show off what he’s learned in training class. He has an automatic sit, auto down and he knows roll over! He loves working for treats. He’s looking for a family who would like to continue his education with further training. In fact, that’s included with his adoption – even though he’s already got a great start.

As long as he gets out for walks, runs and play, he’s absolutely fine in a small apartment, condo, townhouse or house! And, he loves car rides. He just wants to please and be loved.

Apollo is very healthy, de-wormed, up-to-date on vaccines, micro-chipped, heartworm tested and on monthly preventative. He is crate-trained and housebroken when kept on a schedule. His adoption fee of $250 benefits rescued pets. Please fill out an adoption application here: and follow up by contacting Cynthia at

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Chicago 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 Chicago 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/Mastiff breeders who help with Great Dane/Mastiff rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chicago paves the way for another one to be saved.
