Violet's Story...
Petite and Precious

My name is Violet and I'™m a 1 year old black Great Dane. I was surrendered to Forever Friends Great Dane Rescue after Animal Control took me, my sister and brother from a neglect situation. I was so scared when I got to my foster home! I had never been on a leash and did not know how to be a puppy at all! My foster siblings have taught me a lot in a short amount of time!

I love to cuddle with my humans but if they are busy, I will curl up next to my foster brothers. I love those guys! They have shown me how to play with toys and chew on bones! I never had any of that stuff so I had no idea what to do with it! I love my bones now and have a love-hate relationship with stuffed toys. I love to throw them all around and chase them but then I like to try to swallow them too! I guess this isn'€™t what I'€™m supposed to do, so I'€™m still learning.

My foster home has worked with me a lot and I love them for it. They have shown me I can hold my head up on walks and be confident in the doggie I am! They are working on basic commands of sit, stay and down with me. I know what '€œno'%9D means! .I hear it quite a bit because of all my puppy behaviors! Even though I'€™m one, I act like an 8 month old puppy because I never had a chance to be a crazy puppy! I must live with another four-legged friend. I'€™ve learned so much from them and they help me a lot. I 'look'€%9D to them for guidance all the time (and I chew on them too!!). Sudden movements and loud noises still scare me, so I would do best in a home with older two-legged children.

I will need someone who understands my shyness but wants to help me work through it. I will need continued basic obedience but also socialization work. I missed out on 10 months of fun, puppy times! Will you help me make up for it now? If you to adopt me, please fill out an application at www.foreverfriendsgdri.com

Let'€™s cuddle,
Violet

PS: You can fill out an application for my brother too! He is Atticus!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Violet, a Springfield 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 Springfield, or seeking a Great Dane dog from a breeder in Springfield.

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