Ruckus's Story...
Ruckus #5720, known affectionately as Ruck, is a 3-year-old male, Great Dane mix. This handsome and lovable boy at some point had one eye removed but gets along just fine without it. He loves hanging with his humans and tries to stay close in typical Velcro-Dane fashion. He is wonderful with children of all ages, and even enjoys having his foster family's 2-year-old climbing all over him. He is a big boy, weighing in at 150 pounds, and can be a bit of a goof, so if you get him too riled up he can be a handful even for an adult. He loves playing with other dogs, but doesn't like it when they play too rough (his foster sibling sometimes nips at his legs until he runs away).

Ruckus loves to be with his people and follows them all over the house. Ruckus is house-broken and works hard to let you know when it’s time to go out. He has proven to be eager to please and very trainable though he doesn't always understand what you want. While Ruckus hasn't displayed any destructive tendencies and stays on his bed throughout the night his foster family does keep him confined when he is home alone.

Ruckus would do best in a home with a big fenced in yard and a playmate to help keep him company.
This pup is microchipped. We believe you can always teach an ‘old’ dog new tricks so we highly recommend continued obedience training for this smart pup; it stimulates the dog's mind and establishes a good dog/adopter relationship.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ruckus, a Waldorf 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 Waldorf, or seeking a Great Dane dog from a breeder in Waldorf.

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