Huck's Story...
Huck turned 8 on August 29th. He is a pure bred harlequin Great Dane. He has grown up with another dane/boxer mix and never had any issues with cats. Huck loves to go on walks and seeing his harness and leash will send him into histrionics. He had basic obedience classes from the humane society when he was young but I wouldn't say he listens well. He has always been one to run the street when given the chance to bolt but does come back once he finds a brand new spot to pee. That vanishes when he is walked regularly during the nicer months. His favorite thing is to sit on his bed in front of a fireplace. We have always had a gas fireplace and he likes being warm. When there is no fire all you have to do is lift up a blanket over his bed and he will go curl up so you can put the blanket on him. He thinks couches are his bed.

He does bark quite a bit. He will stop when told but being such a big boy it's pretty loud. A bark collar does the trick, it only needed to be turned on for the first couple weeks.
He loves for his ears to be rubbed and will groan in pleasure.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Huck, a Salem 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 Salem, or seeking a Great Dane dog from a breeder in Salem.

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