In need of a new home, Ciaran (Pronounced like the Japanese beer Kiran. The name is Gaelic for "Little Dark One")
He's about 20-22 months old, Lab/Great Dane mix, 75ish lbs. Very friendly!!!. Likes everyone, especially kids. Likes other dogs, just nervous the first time he meets them, so introductions may take a few minutes and need to be done appropriately. On walks he does get excited when he sees a dog and starts pulling and barking, but I'm sure that could be worked on. He's never been around cats. I think he would do great with: A family with kids, An active single or couple who would wanna take him hiking or running. If someone has another dog, he shouldn't have any trouble getting in to the mix, maybe a bigger dog is better from him, since he likes to play. The people who fostered him, used to take him canoeing and hiking as a pup.
He can & does jump a 4 foot fence to go say hi to dogs walking by, but don't think he'd be able to get over a privacy fence. Overall health is good, only issue he has, is an underdeveloped lower jaw, so he's got a big overbite. The vet called it "Parrot Jaw", but it looks like it won't be a problem, since his last visit the vet said it looked like it his lower canines aren't hitting the roof of his mouth.
I do feel it's best to re-home him, since my smaller female dog has gone after him a few times, and she just doesn't like having another dog in the house, all the time. He really has the temperament of a Lab.
Please contact me directly if you are interested in meeting him. Patrick email@example.com
