Story
Meet Oreo, a 1-year-old male Great Dane/Black Labrador Retriever mix who is looking for his forever home! He is a big, lovable boy, weighing in at 70 pounds. He has a striking black and white coat, just like the cookie he's named after, and he's just as sweet. Oreo has a zest for life and is always happy and looking to have some fun! He is very strong on the leash, so his adopters should be comfortable handling a dog of his size and strength. Dont worry! We can show you how to manage him on leash. He would love a big yard where he can run and play all day long. His favorite thing to do is play tug and fetch! Oreo continues to work hard on his basic manners training. He's still trying to master loose leash walking, as he's still a young dog and a work in progress. But he loves his training time, knows sit and down, and with consistency, he'll quickly learn how to be a well-behaved companion. While Oreo did okay with kids in his previous home, he can be jumpy and mouthy at times, especially when he's super excited. Oreo also doesn't love sharing his highly prized items, so we recommend that any children in the household be over 12 years of age. Overall, Oreo is a smart and affectionate dog who will make a great companion for an experienced adopter who can provide him with the love, patience, and training he needs. If you're looking for an active and fun-loving dog, Oreo might just be the perfect match for you and he's here waiting to meet you! For more information, email info@ahconnects.org or call us at 847-697-2880 x: 0, and the staff will be happy to help you. Oreo is an all-star dog, and his adoption appointment includes a discussion with the training team, as well as a few enrichment goodies to help get you both off to a good start. To learn more about Oreo or to schedule an appointment to meet him, please email info@ahconnects.org (including your name and phone number), and the staff will be happy to assist you. Our dogs and puppies go home spayed/neutered, microchipped, heartworm tested (7 months and over), and up to date on core vaccines, heartworm, flea, and tick preventatives. Their adoption also includes a free-vet exam at one of our participating veterinarians.

MayDay

Great Dane Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium)

Female, 7 yrs 3 mos
East Dundee, IL
Size
(when grown) Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
Details
Not good with cats, Spayed or Neutered, Shots are up-to-date,
Story
A few years ago, this sweet girl was found dumped along the fence of our rescue! She was skin and bones and needed immediate help, so we named her MayDay. Our best guess is she around 6 or 7 years old and a Great Dane/ Staffshire terrier mix. She is very gentle, loves people, and really enjoys car rides. Mayday gets along with males, but is not very playful with other dogs. She would do best as the only fur baby in the home. Since she has been a kennel dog her whole life, MayDay is not pot trained so she will need a family who understands that. This dear girl would love a chance to live out her days in the comfort of a home with a family who will love her! If you want to give MayDay that chance, find us at https://www.tailsoftheforgottenpaws.org/ to fill out an application or on facebook (tails of the forgotten paws)

Story
Frita is a wonderful girl. She was used for breeding before being relinquished to a kill shelter. Now she is in a loving home. Frita is about 3 years old. She is very affectionate and loves attention from the humans in her foster home. Frita's playful side is starting to come out. She throws a ball in the air and has the zoomies! It is wonderful to see her come out of her shell. Interested in this beauty? Please submit an adoption application and put her name in the subject line of the email. Wagging Hearts is an all volunteer rescue and we will get back to you asap. Thank you!

Story
Raven is a sweet girl who is full of love and curiosity. Sudden movements and new things make her nervous. Going through the doorway was quite the challenge! She definitely has the typical Dane temperament. She loves everyone!! Although she sometimes forgets how big she is already and will accidentally push younger kids around. She tends to stay close by in the yard and is unphased by squirrels; cats she will occasionally chase out of curiosity. She would do great in a home that has plenty of time to spend with her, someone who will play, and even a 4 legged friend or two!To apply to adopt from Just Giants Rescue, you can visit https://justgiants.org/adopt/ to fill out an application.
