ALONA's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

ALONA's Story...
Alona is a 3 year old fawn female with natural ears. She came to us from a city shelter and was very frightened when she first arrived in foster care, but is gradually coming out of her shell. She loves to play with her foster's other dogs, and is wonderful riding in the car. Alona is good with cats, but unknown with children. She's a big snuggle bunny and loves nothing better than to be with her people. Alona is in heat and cannot be spayed until mid-May. Alona came to MAGDRL in April 2009.

Update 4/21/09 - Alona has settled into her foster home and is no longer a frightened little girl. She plays very well with other dogs of all sizes and has a wonderful time running around outside with them. She is very attached to her foster mom, and loves to just hang out close by and see what mom is doing. She's a wiggly-butt when her foster returns from time away but does well in the crate when left alone. She is scheduled to be spayed beginning of May.

Update 5/21/09 - Alona is spayed and ready to go! She continues to have a blast playing with dogs of all sizes and sexes, and loves to romp in the yard with a gang of dogs. She is a bit of a barker at the fence but does well with everyone when meetings are face to face. Alona is affectionate and a leaner, loves her people. She enjoys walks through the neighborhood.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

ALONA, 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.
