LEXI's Story...
LEXI is a 2 year old little dane lady who is sweet, affectionate and quite pretty. She has a delicate face and nice markings. She is low keyed, and content to hang at home in her crate (even with the door open). She has house manners but I'm not quite sure she's housetrained yet--she's certainly crate-trained, however, so as long as she's in the crate, there will be no accidents. Lexi will look at you with her big innocent eyes and you'll be suckered into thinking she can do no wrong! But, alas, she loves to trash pick and is happy to put her paws up to find hidden goodies and open cabinets to find goodies inside. She knows sit, down and paw and is very well mannered when receiving treats. She's also learning touch (nose to palm). She's eager to please and very happy to work for food. Lexi is a sneaky little girl who cons you into thinking that butter wouldn't melt in her big brown eyes, but she is a bit of a resource guarder as well, and likes to put herself square in the path of her humans so that no one else can get to them. Lexi loves to burrow her head in your lap and try to climb up so that she's attached to you everywhere--it's adorable! She'd like to play with other pups but the other foster here isn't interested in playing with her yet, so she's biding her time. She's such a dane that, the other day in very high winds (60 mph or so), she stuck her nose out the door and then ran and squeezed herself into a corner between the crate and a wall so that she didn't have to go out. She later had an accident while gated in the kitchen. If Lexi doesn't want to do something, she runs away from you and tries to make sure you can't get to her. She will most likely be very scared when leaving her known environment but that soon settles out and she'll be wagging her tail and having a good time in only a few short days. (2)
Update 2/16/08 - Lexi has been here for a week and is ready for action! She would do well with an active male dog who can play hard and hang out with her. She's a sneaky girl who snuggles up to you and slowly crawls onto the bed from your lap so that you don't notice that's where she wants to be! She's fun loving and easy going and wants to sit in your lap with paws on your head or shoulders. She gets along well with her foster brother but wants him to play more. She would gladly steal his food or stuffies, is also a MAJOR counter surfer, and is fine climbing furniture to get to snacks out of reach. I'm hoping to kid and cat test her this week sometime.Lexi is a courtesy listing.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

LEXI, a York 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 York, or seeking a Great Dane dog from a breeder in York.

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