Quinn Great Dane Young Female in Blaine, Minnesota

My story
Hi! My name is Quinn. No one is really sure of my age, but I’m a young spayed beautiful female merle Great Dane.I’ve had a rough start to my life and came into rescue a little ill and a lot underweight, but I now enjoy a life inside with my humans, other fur-friends, plenty of food, and lots of affection. I’ve got a pretty easy going and happy-go-lucky attitude.With proper introduction, I can get along well with big and small dogs, both male and female, although there have been some different incidents which have indicated that I cannot have another  pet in my home. I have not met a cat yet, but I do tend to have a bit of a prey-drive. There are outside rabbits and pheasants at my foster home and I would just go nuts if I could get a hold of one, so maybe a new home without any of the small critters would be best for me.I have been learning house manners and basic obedience, which I’m a super-star at it. My foster momma says so. She says I’m so smart! I’m muzzle trained, which makes it so much safer for everyone when I’m being introduced to new friends. I’ve also recently been crate trained and go in all the time just to hang out, although it’s not often that I’m locked in it for very long. I have learned to come when called and learned “Sit”, “Down”, “Shake”, “Off”, “Out”, “Bed”, and other basic commands. I really aim to please and want to make everyone happy, especially if they are offering treats as a reward or even cuddles and scritches. I love to play with my toys and don’t really have a preference as to what kind, I love them all! My foster family is teaching me fetch and I could go all day doing that! I’m evening learning “go get it” and “drop it” as part of this fun game.I admit, I’m most definitely a daddy's girl, but I will love on anyone that'll give me attention or treats.  Although I’m a petite gal, I make my presence known with "hugs" or nudges, kisses, and the common Dane-leaning. If given the chance, I’ll also back up and park my bum on your lap while you’re sitting and hang out with you watching tv. I’m the typical “Velcro Dane” and want to be with my human all the time too, so I’m working on riding well in the car so I can go more places with my person.I’m quite a social girl, nothing shy about me. I will bark at company but it’s more of a greeting. My way of saying “Hi, give me pets!” Although I love everyone, I would probably not do well in a house with young children, since I’m a bit clumsy. Note from Foster –Quinn will do well in a more active home, but not a chaotic one, as she can get stressed and not know how to react. In cases like this, she tends to run and hide in her “safe space” which is her bed or crate. Even though she is not kenneled frequently, we’ve worked on kennel training and leave the door open and her bed inside so she’s free to go in and out on her own. Quinn cannot be trusted to free-roam without supervision. I would recommend the continued use of a kennel or a safe and secure room for her if you plan to be out of the house for any length of time. She does tend to get into things if left unsupervised.Quinn does prefer men, but also does very well with women if her guy isn’t around.Although she is social and does well with other dogs, I would recommend performing a slow introduction to other dogs, as socialization is still a fairly new thing for her. She is muzzle trained and it's proven to be a safe and effective way to introduce her other dogs.Quinn loves walks and is learning to walk more on a leash and harness, but would love a large fenced yard for her to run and do zoomies.Quinn is the sweetest girl you’re likely to meet!##1291456##
