(when grown) X-Large 101 lbs (46 kg) or more
Spayed or Neutered,
Meet Boone the Dane!
Breed: Great Dane
Age: 1 year (estimated DOB 2/22/22)
Size: 136# and still growing!
Boone the Dane was rescued by a good Samaritan who witnessed him being thrown from a vehicle. Outside of some allergies and several calluses on his legs that are trying to heal, this guy is healthy and ready to find his forever family! He will need a diet WITHOUT chicken, as he is allergic. It not only causes itching and the need to treat with medication, but it also greatly upsets his stomach, and given the size of his digestive system - it's a no for me, dawg.
Boone the Dane's strength equally matches his energy level, which is not low by any stretch of the imagination. He is working real hard on his listening skills, but as a 136# adolescent giant, his family will need to out-stubborn him. He is incredibly smart and wants to learn, but will need clear and consistent expectations from every member of his household in order to be successful. He currently knows sit & shake, & will walk well on a leash until something more interesting than you catches his eye. Unless your kids want to know what it's like to be a tractor plow, we REALLY don't recommend anyone with less than Hulk strength on the other end of his leash at this time.
He has not formally been introduced to his foster's other dogs at this point in his training regimen, but he seems to enjoy their company & whines when they go outside without him. He has never met a cat, nor any children, but he is super sweet and loves to give kisses to pure strangers. He has a HUGE heart and lots of love to give to someone who can help reign in his manners. He is working on learning that jumping on you is not an acceptable greeting, and listens well to corrections in the moment.
He doesn't quite understand the value or purpose of toys unless it is to harbor yummy peanut butter or snacks - why play with ropes when he can have food?! Boone the Dane LOVES car rides, almost as much as he likes attempting to climb in the driver's seat during the entire thing. Pair this terrible habit with his other need to place the majority of his upper body out the window.. annnnd you'll definitely need to budget a sturdy dog-seatbelt to keep everyone safe on your way to get him a pupaccino.
Boone the Dane has some hops he's pretty proud of, so if you have a fence, we are recommending a sturdy, 6 ft fence to keep him and his puppy antics contained in your backyard and not romping around the neighborhood the second you're not staring into his corneas. He's got some unresolved beef with the neighboring pot-bellied pigs, so it's unlikely he would be living his best life on a farm.
He is crate trained and house trained.
