Rescue Me ID: 18-06-23-00026Melbourne (female)

Great Dane Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Pal's Place would love to introduce you to an adorable litter of sweet, shy and gentle giant pups in need of loving families! These sweet babies were born around 3/30/18 and were rescued from rural KY. We are not quite sure what they are mixed with but some pups appear to have some Great Pyrenees in them and all 6 of these guys have rear dewclaws which are a distinguishing feature of the Great Pyr breed. Moxie, Memphis, and Mackenzie look almost identical, have soft fluffy coats and also appear to have some Shepherd in them as well. Madeline and Mugsy have similar fluffy coats but are black in color and look like they could have some ... (Read More)Border Collie in them and their sister Melbourne, the largest in the litter (30 pounds at 10 weeks!) looks like a Great Dane pup. While all 6 pups are littermates and have the same mother, it is quite possible and in fact, likely some of the pups could have a different father. All of the pups currently between 15-30 pounds and are 10 weeks old (6/13) We are estimating that these guys will be in the 80-120 pound range when fully grown and will do best in homes that can accommodate a large to an extra large dog. All of the pups in this litter can be shy at first and will do best in more quiet homes that can help nurture some confidence in them. Please keep in mind that puppies this young need frequent potty breaks (every 2-3 hours) and lots of playtime throughout the day. They'll do best in homes where people are home more often than not. The pups are currently in a foster home on Chicago's north side and can be seen by appointment once an application has been received and approved. The adoption donation to the rescue is $375 per pup. They have been neutered/spayed, are up-to-date with age-appropriate vaccines and are microchipped. For more information or for an application to meet them, please email Melbourne's adoption donation is $375. This donation helps to cover her spay, initial vaccines, initial worming, and microchip. Pal's Place relies solely on donations to care for the pets in our care. Your donation also helps save other animals like Melbourne from euthanasia. Please email for an adoption application and please put the name of the dog in the subject line. Please be sure to check your spam/junk folder; sometimes the applications end up in there! 'ۢ All of our dogs are in foster homes are can be seen BY APPOINTMENT ONLY, after an approved application has been received. To receive more info please email Email is the preferred method of contact and is the quickest way to receive a response. We cannot place holds on our dogs, please do not contact us until you are prepared to adopt. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 18-01-31-00187Stanley (male)

Great Dane Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    I am 62 lbs, great with other dogs & love people! A note from Stanley's foster mom: 'Stanley is a cutie who loves to snuggle and will fall asleep with his head on your lap. He is house broken and will go to the door to let you know he needs to go out. He loves to play in the yard and 'hunt' for chipmunks hiding under the deck just out of his reach where he will stand with his nose near the ground and his backside up in the air with his tail wagging a mile a minute. Stanley really knows how to show you how much he loves you by showering you with kisses when you come home whether you have been gone for five minutes or a few hours. He ... (Read More)will follow you from room to room always wanting to be where you are. He loves to play tug of war with rope toys and loves to entertain himself with chew toys. So if you are looking for a loving dog who is crazy about snuggles and adores you Stan is your man.' All family members and any dogs from the household need to be present at the time of the adoption. No cats for me ): Adoption donation: $350 All dogs are microchipped, neutered, current on all vaccines, heartworm tested and started on Tri Heart Plus & Vectra 3D. Please fill out the adoption application and call 847-961-5541 with any additional questions. No cats for me. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Great Dane in Illinois
    Great Dane Dogs can make good pets in Illinois if they match your IifestyIe. The Great Dane is an enormous, but extremely gentle breed often referred to as the Gentle Giant. Great Danes are kind, loyal, and sociable. They need to be around people. Great Danes are gentle, devoted, and wonderful with children, but should be supervised with little ones because of their large size. Great Danes should be well trained as puppies. Great Danes can live in an apartment with enough daily exercise but do best with a large yard.
