Mr. Bascomb's Story...
Adoption Pending


Mr. Bascomb is an approximately 2-3 year old merle male with white markings and natural ears. He was found abandoned in the city. Mr. Bascomb, know affectionately as Mr. B, loves hanging with his humans and tries to stay close. His name comes from a Great Dane in a Jerry Lewis / Dean Martin movie from the 50’s and maybe it’s appropriate because he can be a bit of a goof. He loves playing, both with toys and especially with other dogs. He gets along well with small dogs, but likes to roughhouse and doesn’t always realize how big he is. Mr. B loves to be with his people and follows them all over the house. He would sit in your lap or snuggle on the sofa all day, so plan accordingly and grab the remote and a drink before you sit down! His tail betrays his happiness and begins thumping as soon as he sees you look at him. Mr. B is house-broken and works hard to let you know when “it’s time”. He has proven to be a quick learner and very trainable and food/treat-motivated. He will wait patiently on his bed while his dinner is being prepared or while the human dinner is being prepared. Mr. B greets other dogs well, but with a lot of enthusiasm. He gets very excited when we see other dogs on our walks in the neighborhood and adopters will need to follow up training to continue to improve that behavior. Mr. B was recently neutered and had entropion eye surgery to correct eyelids that rolled inward and rubbed on his eyeballs causing eye infections and redness. We’ve seen dramatic improvement in the short time since that surgery, though some of the pictures show his red eyes from before this was addressed. Mr. B would do best in a home with a big fenced in yard and an energetic playmate to help provide an outlet for his energy. He will only be placed in a home with another medium to large sized dog for him to play with.

Mr. B requires traditional fencing. MAGDRL does not allow electronic fencing. For our fencing policies and adoption procedures, please visit our website: www.magdrl.org. MAGDRL adopts to eastern NY, eastern PA, NJ, DE, WV, MD, DC and VA only.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mr. Bascomb, a Hanover 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 Hanover, or seeking a Great Dane dog from a breeder in Hanover.

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