MERCER's Story...
Mercer is a 4 1/2 year old fawn female with cropped and standing ears. She came to rescue due to her family divorcing and not being able to find an apartment that would allow her to stay with her family. Mercer's nickname is Woofy, which was what her owner called her the majority of the time. She is a friendly girl who is excellent with children, having grown up with one. She does well with small dogs, and we are still testing her on larger dogs. She should do well if introduced slowly. Mercer lived on 14 acres with free run and is not well socialized with other animals. Mercer loves her crate and when frightened will go hang out in there. She is afraid of thunder, lightning, and gunfire. She loves apple pieces and will sit in your lap or lean in true Dane manner. Mercer came to MAGDRL in December 2008.

Update 12/24/08 - Mercer is settling in quickly at her new foster home. She's inquisitive, gentle, and very sweet. She has done well gated in the kitchen, but her foster suspects that she'd be fine with run of the house. She's a calm girl who has small bouts of energy. She loves stuffed toys and people food, and seems to enjoy outdoors as well. She's been cat tested in a house and passed. What a wonderful companion! Woofy is currently in heat and can't be spayed until mid-February. She will be available after her spay.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

MERCER, 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.
