Scrappy's Story...
Hi, my name is Scrappy. I am about 1 ½ years old and I am a Black Mouth Cur/Great Dane mix. Yup, you guessed it – I’m a big boy. You remember that cartoon character Scooby Doo? Scooby had a cousin named Scrappy Doo? I look a little bit like him but err, cuter! One day I wondered into someone’s yard. I had no tags on and I wasn’t microchip. Thankfully that person knew someone who was an Animal Rescuer and she contacted the right person. They scanned me for a chip and I waited days in her home vs me going into a shelter. Nobody claimed so I came to a foster home where I now wait for a forever home. That’s sounds like a nice place – a forever home. I like my foster home though. There’s a little dog that lives here and a bunch of cats. I have lots of energy so I chase the cats but my foster Mom tells me NO and I stop. My foster Mom knows I was someone’s dog because I know some commands: SIT, DOWN and SHAKE. I can catch a ball, I’m not food or toy aggressive but when I get excited I do jump and being a big dog (I weigh about 75lbs) I might need a caution around little kids. But I settle down after a while. I walk pretty well on my leash. I like going outside because then I get to run around and I do have lots of energy. I’m young so I have lots of energy. I love, just LOVE playing with my toys especially if it’s a ball. I do this funny thing. I have a ball that I can pop out of my mouth and throw in the air and then I catch it right back. I make people laugh. Want to come meet me and I’ll make you laugh? I hope someday I will have my own home again and this home will have a really good fence so I won’t become a stray again. Maybe that family will give some training so that I can become a well-behaved dog. It starts with you meeting me. So please contact my foster Mom. Thanks, Scrappy.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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