Otis's Story...
Otis is a 1 1/2 year old deaf merlequin male with natural ears. He came to rescue due to his family splitting and him no longer receiving the attention he needed or deserved. Unfortunately this is his second trip to rescue, he was originally being rescued from a shelter at the tender age of 5 months. Otis is an extremely sweet boy who gets along well with everyone. He’s fine with children of all ages, and has lived with children as young as 5 years old. He might be a bit active for little ones that are not used to a strong Dane tail and being knocked over by a Dane running by. Otis LOVES playing with other dogs, and must be placed in a family with another dog. Preferably one that is large and young enough that they can handle Otis’s still puppy playfulness. He is said to be good with cats, and didn’t do anything but check out the cat that was walking loose around the vet office, but we could see him chasing a cat to try and get it to play with him. Being deaf doesn’t phase Otis at all. He watches the other dog in the house for cues, and pays close attention to where his people are. One of his eyes is cloudy, but he appears to have limited, if not full, vision in that eye. Otis is crate trained, and is currently spending his nights and time when his family is not home in a crate. He rides great in the car, and while not perfect on a leash, isn’t too bad. Otis would fit in with just about any family that is willing to bring in a playful, still puppy Dane into their home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Otis, a Hanover 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 Hanover, or seeking a Great Dane dog from a breeder in Hanover.

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