Facts about Deuce

  • Breed: Great Dane
  • Color: Black
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: X-Large 101 lbs (46 kg) or more
  • Sex: Male
Deuce is a 5 year old black Dane. He is a medium to big Dane and beautiful black with little white paws. Deuce is a Velcro Dane and will love his new owner unconditionally. HE LOVES other animals – ALL of them – size, shape, kind. They bring him great comfort. He does need a quiet “normal” routine schedule. Since he has been bounced around a fair amount, if something changes – it really makes him uneasy. Deuce is a bit nervous and with some basic training he will do great. We have him on some wonderful holistic meds to help with the anxiety and he has responded very well.

Deuce would do best with a very quiet family (with no kids) and a house that doesn’t have a lot of activities. He wants to love, watch TV (on the sofa), go for walks, and LOVE!!!!!

He crates well but he will want to be with his owners when they are home.

His anxiety can be managed with the right surroundings and reinforcement and encouragement from his owners. He just needs to know the world is right and he is loved.
Deuce is a very sweet boy, loves animals and just needs a caring gentle person to help him see the grass is greener and the flowers smell great. Deuce came to MAGDRL in March. (5)

Deuce is a 6 year old, medium size black male and adjusted well with his foster mom and sister. He loves his foster family, making them laugh with his playful goofiness. He takes a brisk walk every day at his favorite spot, the local cemetery where there are few distractions and beautiful views. Daily walks keep his muscles tone and joints loose. After the walk, he loves a comfortable seat on the couch with his blanket, pillow, and teddy bear. He goes to the bathroom on command and knows basic command words. Deuce respects the boundaries of a baby gate around the kitchen and stays on his side of the bed at night. Deuce enjoys baths but does not like his nails clipped. He does not care for chew toys but love his stuffed teddy bear. Whether he is happy, sad, or nervous, the bear serves as a form of comfort. He rides well in the car and crates well for short periods of time. He attends daycare one in awhile but prefers to be the only dog in a very quiet home. He does not like noise from appliances or the vacuum but progressively barks less with exposure. He does not easily warm up to people that come to the house or walk in public. With the right direction or redirection, he would be less aggressive towards strangers. He does love other animals, though is sometimes uneasy around cats. Once strict routine is established and lots of positive attention is given, he will make a loving companion.
