Bullwinkle is looking for a foster home. Can you help?
Bullwinkle is a 3 year old harlequin male with natural ears. He came to us from a shelter. Bullwinkle is a big boy, but he's also a chicken!!! He likes cats, could care less about them. When in his kennel, he barks and growls and shows his teeth when people pass, but it's because he is clearly terrified - tail completely tucked, backing up. Don't let that turn you off, he's actually easy to get out of the kennel, once you open the gate he starts the tail wagging and is ready to come out. He will lean all over you, just about knocking you down. Bullwinkle loves to have his butt rubbed, will stand all day for that. He will guard his food from another dog, but is fine with people. He is still nervous around new people but he will investigate them if they move slowly and calmly with him. He responds very nicely to petting and talking and was even wagging his tail. He loves to carry a toy around with him even when he goes out to pee.. will play fetch and bring it back and drop what ever (ball, Frisbee) at your feet. He's not a very active dog but will play. He is definitely a gentleman. Bullwinkle came to MAGDRL in April 2009.

Update 5/29/09 - Bull is settling in and now greets his foster mom and dad at the boarding facility with tail wags when they approach his kennel. He's still nervous when new people approach and will bark and growl, but once the kennel is open he's fine. If he meets someone more than once then he doesn't react like this, its only when he's crated or kenneled and meets someone new. Bullwinkle loves toys, give him a pile of them and he'll play by himself for a while till he realizes he needs a people fix and then he look for you to get some loving. He's housetrained, eats well, just a happy boy who likes men but prefers to be around womEn. Bull isn't for the first time dane or dog owner. At the boarding facility he has a structured and routine schedule and is doing excellent knowing his boundaries. No children under 12 yrs old or face level as he's afraid of them... Bull has been to the Vet and was excellent with the tech's and other animals. He had cherry eye surgery and needs to be on steroids for 10 days as the eye is irritated.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

BULLWINKLE, a Pearl River 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 Pearl River, or seeking a Great Dane dog from a breeder in Pearl River.

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