Fenris turned 12 weeks today.
He was 1st pick male pup from the litter.
I may live in Oregon, but I am not from here. I was born and raised in NY.
I chose him because he comes from good lines and was family raised. His breed gives what I want/like. They are loyal dogs and love to please.
I got Fenris for less than they were asking because of what he will be used for. Since he will be fixed and be a service dog, we worked out a deal for him.
As I said, the weight pulling is an idea to give him something fun to do. If he doesn't seem to like it, I'll find him a different activity. If he likes it, I'd be more than happy to keep him at it at least for as little while.
Fenris is fine to be around the two danes. The great danes are not mine and they are not properly socialized. The only places they go are for car rides and to the vet. They have all their shots and he is up to date on his. I've raised puppies before without any problems.
As for bite force.. It doesn't really matter to me, but I also don't believe that his bite force is weak. He's proven to have strong jaw and neck muscles. I know my pup. I enjoy him and he has already started to learn tasks to help me. We're working on obedience and leash training. Once he is 4 months old, he'll be entered into obedience class. When that is completed, he'll take the Canine Good Citizen Test. After passing that, he will start public access training. I have confidence that Fenris will do well. He's a good dog and loves people. He's smart and aims to please.
