Huck turned 8 on August 29th. He is a pure bred harlequin Great Dane. He has grown up with another dane/boxer mix and never had any issues with cats. Huck loves to go on walks and seeing his harness and leash will send him into histrionics. He had basic obedience classes from the humane society when he was young but I wouldn't say he listens well. He has always been one to run the street when given the chance to bolt but does come back once he finds a brand new spot to pee. That vanishes when he is walked regularly during the nicer months. His favorite thing is to sit on his bed in front of a fireplace. We have always had a gas fireplace and he likes being warm. When there is no fire all you have to do is lift up a blanket over his bed and he will go curl up so you can put the blanket on him. He thinks couches are his bed.
He does bark quite a bit. He will stop when told but being such a big boy it's pretty loud. A bark collar does the trick, it only needed to be turned on for the first couple weeks.
He loves for his ears to be rubbed and will groan in pleasure.
