Murdock's Story...
Murdock is a handsome older gentleman, Brindle with natural ears and a kind, sweet face. Although he will turn 10 in December, he is healthy and his blood work came back good. He still loves to go for walks and car rides, hanging out with the miniature schnauzer and mid-size mixed breed dogs in the house as well as two older cats and two rabbits. When he first came to his foster home he had a lot of difficulty getting up and down but after a couple of acupuncture sessions, good food and some quality supplements he is showing remarkable improvement and can hustle right along with his 4-year-old foster sister-dog. He currently has an old unhealed sore on the inside of his front leg which is being cleaned and treated but otherwise does not seem to bother him. Murdock seems to enjoy the attention of children when on a walk but not so much medium sized dogs. He is great with the one in his foster home but not when leashed. Other than that he has no vices and just loves hanging out. Over all he is a sweet old guy who loves to be petted, brushed and loved on and in return he gives great leans and gentle nudges. Won’t you consider opening your heart to all the love this kind old man can offer in his golden years? You won’t regret one minute of the love a senior Dane can give.
Murdock came to MAGDRL in August 2016. (5)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Murdock, a Manassas 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 Manassas, or seeking a Great Dane dog from a breeder in Manassas.

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