Great Dane

Male, Adult
McDonald, PA
(when grown) -
Good with dogs, Not good with cats,
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Fill out an Adoption Application BLIZZARD IS LOCATED IN HARRISBURG, PA. Meet Blizzard, AKA “The Blizz”! Blizzard is a three-year-old Great Dane who, along with his brother Thunder, was surrendered to MTM following the unfortunate passing of their owner. Blizzard is currently placed in a foster home in South Central Pennsylvania. Likes: Blizzard loves snacks, which is a good thing, because he probably could stand to gain 10-15 pounds. He loves to play outside in the fenced yard at his foster home, and he also really enjoys his morning walks, and likes to get out early before it gets too warm outside. He also seems to enjoy chew toys like antlers and also large stuffed animals. Dislikes: Blizzard’s current dislikes mostly involve being separated from his people. He does not love his crate, and cries when crated overnight or when he is able to hear people in the house, but is showing daily improvement as he becomes more tolerant of crate time. Personality: (goofy, laid back, playful, etc) Blizzard is WHOLE lot of dog, and he knows it! He frequently uses his size to his advantage. He will jump on your counters, you, and everything you love with reckless abandon. He loves to be petted and have his ears rubbed, and will forcefully shove his face into you every chance he gets to demand pets. If you stop, he will probably slap at you with his paw to try to get your attention again. Temperament: While more or less a pretty mellow and sweet big guy, Blizzard does show some signs of insecurity at times. He is startled relatively easily during walks by passing cars, unexpected noises, etc. He is also unsure of himself when meeting new people, especially when he is meeting them outside his foster home. While it’s possible many of these behaviors may lessen as he becomes more settled in his permanent home, and more familiar with his surroundings, it is still something that a potential adopter should be aware of. Blizz would like potential adopters to know that his foster family is working on this with him, and gradually getting him more comfortable with meeting strangers in a structured environment outside the foster home. Energy level:  Blizz loves to run around like a wild man and play outside…for all of about 10-15 minutes. Then he’s done and will sleep like he’s dead for the next hour or two. Typical Dane - big on energy, short on stamina. He loves walks and gets really excited when he sees his harness and leash come out! He will also be happy to chase a large ball if you throw it! Just don’t expect him to bring it back to you once he’s done chasing it, because that’s where his interest stops. Favorite activities: By far, Blizzard’s favorite pastime involves being loved on and receiving attention, but he has also really enjoys daily walks and playing outside.   Good with cats, dogs, and kids (over 6)?: While Blizzard lived happily with another dog all his life, a family member of his former owner noted that he had not been around other dogs at all other than the one he lived with. Blizzard can be reactive to other dogs on leash, and this is worsened when the other dog barks or stares at him. When introduced to new dogs, he does get easily overwhelmed and overstimulated. Blizzard could probably adjust to living with another dog, but would also do best with a more laid-back canine sibling, who won’t feed into him when he becomes overstimulated or pushy. Additionally, VERY gradual introductions over time would be of the utmost importance to helping to set Blizzard up for success in living with another dog.  Blizzard has not been tested with cats at all, but he does show interest in chasing small critters when he sees them in the yard or on walks, so it is likely that at minimum, he would probably chase a cat. Blizzard has been exposed to both younger and older kids. He does best with older, more dog savvy children who are able to give him the space he needs to become comfortable with them. While he is tolerant of younger and less reserved children, he definitely is more nervous and unsure of himself when interacting with them. Not good with: Small critters. Blizzard fixates on small animals when he sees them on walks, and becomes very vocal and pulls to try to chase them. Housetrained: Blizz appears to be fully housebroken and has had zero accidents so far in his foster home. It should be noted, he appears to favor solid surfaces when it’s time to poop. He will choose a sidewalk or road over the grass every time. So if his future family has a yard with a paved surface, they may want to be aware of this. Crate trained: Yes! While it makes him REALLY sad to be away from his people, he is becoming more and more comfortable in his crate every day. He should have no problem with a standard wire crate, as long as it’s a Dane sized one. Requires a fenced yard (physical fence and/or invisible fence)? While he really enjoys playing in the fenced yard at his foster home, Blizzard doesn’t feel he needs a fence to be happy and safe in a home. However, an invisible fence would not be recommended. Blizz will attempt to chase small critters, and it’s unlikely an invisible fence would stop him from leaving the yard to chase a groundhog or squirrel. Walks well on a leash? When it comes to walking on leash, Blizzard has a lot to brag about. He walks BEAUTIFULLY with harness and leash. He only pulls when he sees small critters, or when another dog barks at him, and in both circumstances, he has shown he is highly responsive to verbal correction, and able to be distracted with treats. Challenges: Blizzard does not possess a lot of basic manners, or know many basic commands. He can also be nervous when meeting new people outside the home. Once he warms up, you are in, and good luck stopping him from trying to get into your lap, but he does sometimes need time to get there. Treats, especially hot dog slices, really help speed up the process! Any Medical issues? Blizz could stand to put on a few pounds, as mentioned previously, but otherwise seems to be in great health. What would be the best kind of home? So far, it seems Blizz would benefit most from being adopted by a family who is committed to continuing to provide him with a stable and structured environment, and who will enforce basic training to curb some of his less than gentlemanly habits, as while he is a sweet boy, he is also more than a little pushy. Blizzard would also love to find a family who will continue to work on socialization with him, while also being patient and respectful of his boundaries and not rushing him to do too much too fast.

Please fill out an adoption application found at Hobbs - You are the bridge between what was and what will be, my pathway to a new life! Oh my, it's BIG puppy, but puppy cuteness overload just the same going on here!!! This sweet boy has almost ALL the boxes checked - Affectionate - check Sweet - check Huggable and Kissable - double that check Playful - check Cute as a button(the big 4 hole kind!) - oh for sure that's a check Pawsome family members - yep, that's a check The family - no check :( ...yet! The name Hobbs is often thought to be a name that implies a pioneering spirit, a natural born leader, highly focused, and achievement oriented. Enduring hardship to try out new things come naturally and also being energetic and confident. Your heart’s desire is to help and care for those you love. You treasure family values and traditions and are willing to sacrifice yourself for the sake of others. Oh wow! Do I have a pawsome name or what?!! I am still just a puppy, although a big puppy, still just a puppy at heart. Playful, goofy, sweet, active... I has got it all. Being around 7 months and around 71ish lbs I still have some growing yet to do. But no matter my size I just want a loving family and a safe home. Remember, I might be big in size but that just means more of me to love you! I does do great with people but would do best with older kids, as I would hate to accidently knock over a little one. I also gets along with the other foster pups and would love having a playful sibling to have fun in the yard together stealing...err did I say that out loud? I really meant to say sharing toys!! I am working on my house training and almost have it down completely. I'm a smart cookie so it'll be a walk in the park. Speaking of which, I love going for walks and would do great with an action adventure family that goes on lots of outdoor activities. I would make a great companion for hikes/camping and neighborhood strolls or any other adventures you want to try out. I'd sure be game to give them a whirl too!! With my short sleek shiny coat, a quick wash, rinse and towel dry and I'm good to go, fairly low maintenance. That's always a good thing, cuz you know what that means don't you?! Oh yeah, it leaves lots of extra time for my 'spoil me rotten' time!! Are you searching for that boy that will be your constant? Always there for you, having your back? A big fella with an even bigger heart? Look no further, I just might be that boy. I just need YOUR help getting that last box checked!!

Great Dane American Staffordshire Terrier

Male, 1 yr 1 mo
Cadiz, OH
(when grown) Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
Good with kids, Good with dogs, Not good with cats, Spayed or Neutered,
CYBER came to the Harrison County Dog Pound in September as a scrawny owner surrender. He was so hungry, we thought he might lick the shine off his metal food bowl. In the almost 2 months he’s been at the pound, he’s gained weight and you’d never know his ribs stuck out at one time. CYBER has been fully vaccinated and neutered and he’s ready, willing, and able to join a forever family. He’s extremely treat motivated and if you offered him enough treats, he might even rob a bank if you asked him. He wouldn’t even need a get away car because this boy can move it. He runs and he runs fast. He almost hops while he’s running and we get lots of laughs watching him. CYBER is a year old and still very much a puppy. He likes to carry things in his mouth and when he does, pant legs everywhere are safe. Some dogs like to yank on rope toys, CYBER likes to yank on pant legs. But not everyone’s. He is a dog of discerning taste. He’s good with most other dogs, but he’s got his likes and dislikes there. He’s ok with kids, but due to his rambunctious personality, he’d be better off with a family with older kids. If cats interest you, we guarantee they interest CYBER more. He becomes a barking fool when he’s near one and we’re not sure if it’s because he wants a feline friend or a feline meal. We would have asked him but he wouldn’t quiet down long enough to get a word in so no cats for CYBER. We were told CYBER is a Great Dane/Pittie mix. He’s thin boned like a Dane, but nowhere close in size. He’s strong and needs some leash work. He’d love a fenced in yard because he likes to run. He will fetch a ball and bring it back. If there’s 2 of you throwing a ball to him, he will alternate who he brings it to so no one feels like a 3rd wheel. He’s very thoughtful and inclusive that way. He will make an excellent watch dog because at times, he hears things no one else does and his bark will change to let you know someone uninvited might be in a yard a block away. Seriously, he is a loyal protector and a lady’s man but he needs a strong pack leader with a deep voice to let him know he’s not in charge. CYBER is a bit rough around the edges, but with that strong master, he’ll make one heck of a fun family member.
