Athena's Story...
Athena is a 2-year-old blue merle Great Dane. She is spayed and up to date on vaccinations. She also has gastropexy (tacked her stomach to prevent a bloat). She is full of energy she loves car rides and being able to run free. She is very protective of her family, especially the kids. She loves to cuddle but only if she invites you to cuddle. She is good with dogs she knows, but timid around dogs she does not know. She prefers to have her own wide open space where she comfortable to run and play. She is very active and can be very vocal when she wants to play. She loves stuffed toys, but will demolishing then to get the squeaker. She tends to sleep close to where she can monitor the household especially keeping an eye out to be sure the kids are OK at night. She is fully house trained and crate trained. She gets anxious when left alone, so she needs to be in a home with someone who is there most of the day.

If interested in giving Athena a new loving home, please fill out the adoption application on our website.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Athena, a Austin 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 Austin, or seeking a Great Dane dog from a breeder in Austin.

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