Facts about Huck

  • Breed: Great Dane
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: X-Large 101 lbs (46 kg) or more
  • Sex: Male
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.

About Salem Dogs

About Our Rescue Group...

Salem Dogs has a focus on "special needs" dogs. These can be seniors, overweight dogs, or dogs recovering from medical issues. This often means that financial considerations are important.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Adoptable pets can be seen at FaceBook/Adoptable Dogs in Salem, OR. Also, we have pictures and bios of them on other adoption web sites and often in the local newspaper. We make flyers and send them to the local vets and groomers. We seldom do an outreach with our pets.

Our Adoption Process...

There is no application form to fill out. Phone interviews will start the process. If the interview is promising for a match, we arrange for a meet/greet in neutral territory. If all is well, we have an adoption contract to be completed at that time. Adoption fees are either $150 or whatever we have spent on vet bills (always provided).
