Maya's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Maya's Story...
Maya is a cruelty case. She came from an abusive home. When she was picked up she was very emaciated and extremely under weight (only 76 lbs). You could see every rib in her body. Her neck had a huge open wound from an embedded collar. She was covered with ticks to the point that you couldn’t see the skin in her ears. She tested pos for Ehrlichia and Heartworms. She was in such bad shape, we did not know if she would make it.

As soon as we got Maya, we visited the vet for a full health evaluation. We got her started on meds and special supplements to help improve her skin condition. She got spayed and vaccinated. After she gained some weight, we put her through Heartworm treatment.

It's been a few months and Maya is now in perfect health. She is now ready for a new home.

Maya is a very pretty Dane. She is estimated to be about 3 1/2 years old. She is very sweet and loving. She is house broken and is kennel trained. She gets along with other dogs, but she has a strong prey drive, so will chase cats and other small animals.

Since Maya was abused by a man, she can be a little timid when she meets men she does not know. She also get protective when stranger comes to the house, but she is fine once she knows she is not going to hurt.

If interested in giving Maya a new loving home, please fill out the adoption application on our website: www.pawsofaustin.org

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Maya, a Austin 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 Austin, or seeking a Great Dane dog from a breeder in Austin.

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