Zoe's Story...
Status: Available 7/21 Zoe has been with us for about 2 months and keeps getting smarter and sweeter every day. She still has a puppy's curiosity about many things. Today she was mesmerized by a new flower in the garden. She pawed it and smelled it and finally tasted it (yuck!) before we could move on. She also can't get enough of playing with all of the new born toads. We live near a small river - a perfect breeding space for toads and frogs. She and my resident Dane love to smell, chase, and paw the little warty creatures. She is still cat curious about my 20 pound tomcat. She knows "leave it" but sometimes just cannot resist trying to play with him. When Zoe first came to us, it was a challenge to discourage her from jumping. Now she obeys body language and verbal commands. She is improving on her leash also - not pulling so much. She does get very excited to meet new dogs, so her potential adopter must be prepared to firmly command her not to pull or jump. Zoe did get away from my husband last week to meet a new dog. She entered the dog's electric fence, they had a scuffle, and Zoe was bit. She's fine now but still does need to improve this behavior. I have started taking her to Petsmart again. When I first took her (2 months ago) she barked at everyone and every dog. She loves going now, but we go only when their traffic is low - usually week day mornings. She loves to watch the mice and birds, often laying down for a 5 - 10 minute observation session. Continued exposure will improve her store etiquette. She will go in her crate without treats now, but still appreciates one when she does get it! She has never had an accident.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Zoe, a Inver Grove Heights 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 Inver Grove Heights, or seeking a Great Dane dog from a breeder in Inver Grove Heights.

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