Tuxy's Story...
Tuxy is an approximately 1 year old black male with natural ears. He came to rescue with his brother because his parents couldn’t take care of them anymore. The brothers have been separated into different foster homes. Tuxy is a very sweet boy - typical goofy dane. He is housebroken, but needs a little work on leash manners. He is currently living with a male Great Dane that he adores!! He is also living with 3 young children, ages 3, 6, and 12, and does very well with all of them. He is crated when the family goes out and does fine as long as the other dog is crated in the same room with him. He sleeps on the floor in the 12 year old's room at night and doesn't get into any trouble. He does not do well if crated away from his people or other dogs. Tuxy came to MAGDRL in June 2009.

Update 7/14/09 - Tuxy is a great dog. He's goofy and impish and friendly and sweet. He has a youthful innocence about him which drives him to great displays of affection and a genuine desire to please. While he may be lacking in structured training, he has made great progress in learning basic commands since he's been with us. He truly wants to make us happy. This quality in a dog makes for an excellent companion. He came with absolutely no leash manners or awareness of even the most basic of commands. He was wild and impulsive and seemed to have no sense of himself in space. Now, he understands sit, down, off, no and back it up. He no longer jumps up on people or furniture and walks very politely on the leash if his gentle leader is in place. He is completely housebroken and crate trained, though he does whine if he 'thinks' he's alone. Upon arrival, he was a free feeder. He now eats twice a day and urinates/defecates on schedule as well. He is like a sponge. He wants to learn. He wants to please. He has really come a long way! Tuxy is excellent with my children and the neighborhood kids. No signs of aggression whatsoever. He does well with men and adults and receives petting from strangers in a gentle manner. He did well with the vet's cat but I cannot speak for a permanent cat in a household. But based on his demeanor: impishly goofy, I would assume him to be sweet with any one or any thing. In all honesty, I think any family with kids who takes him will be very fortunate. He is our friendliest and most loving foster yet. He craves human companionship, so a family that is rarely home would not work for him overall.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tuxy, 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.
