No, I'm not going to put her thru all that. Its not like she needs it for function... I cant compete with her in the show ring because she has white tips. (I'm not interested in that anyway) and she wont be hunting wild boars... so I dont see the need for it.

So far, she's BY FAR bigger than all her litter mates. And she's in her clumsy stage. She's so cute when she gallops. She's so awkward.

I think she's a little over 1/4 euro. Her grandfather was the most muscular dane I've ever seen. He was mostly euro. Danica's mother, Sammie, is the tallest female any of the breeders in eastern Ky and parts of Oho have ever seen.

Her dad is of the Meistersinger linage.

I would love to see pictures of the blue one. Thanks :)

wow she seems like a real good dog! Great lines. :) Clumsy stage won't last forever, I'm sure its hilarious!! lol Get some vids and laugh for life <3 I love danes :) THere's one on my street but it looks scared and skinny all the time. Obviously they have it just because. They also have a chihuahua, so you judge why they wanted it :/

From what you're describing, being taller and bigger than her mates, Danica sounds like the big blonde squire of Catleyn Stark in Game of Thrones. She's large and eager to please Stark's to avenge the death of someone Baratheon. Oh my. Here I go... lol

We have two Great Danes and and American Bully puppy. My advice to you is to make sure your GD is very well socialized! The two GDs I live with are not mine. They are a roommates. They were not socialized properly. The male is almost as tall as the current record holder of tallest living dog. He wasn't properly socialized and is now a bit aggressive with other dogs because of it. It is my opinion that it is mainly his frustration in wanting to play with them and not knowing how. I think this because it is what I observed from him when we brought my puppy home. He wants so badly to play with my Fenris but is unsure of how to go about doing so.

Find a reputable breeder. Make sure your dane comes from parents that have been OFA tested (and passed)for their eyes, heart, thyroid, hips, elbows and a genetic test for von Willebrand disease. Don't take the breeder's word for it either. You can look up their dog on the ofa website. This will save you so much heartache and money in the long run. Find a breeder that breeds for sound structure and temperament. If you do all that... your dane could live 10 to 12 years.
The number 1 killer of danes is bloat/torsion. A gastropexy done at the same time as spaying/neutering can prevent it entirely. (Bloat can still occur but it buys you time to get to a vet?

They're worth taking the extra mile. They'll reward you with the love that only the heart of a hound can provide.
