Litter Description:

We are the proud grandparents of eleven (11) Great Dane Puppies! Born October 28th (at 5 AM), these babies will be available for re-homing December 23th. They are old enough now for people to visit and check their personalities. Give us a call to arrange a home visit. For the safety of the pups, we will not allow them to go to anyone we have not met. Both the parents of the pups live in our home, sleep in our bed, and are regarded as somewhat clumsy family members. Both the parents are full-bred Great Danes. There will be no papers. These are being sold as companion dogs, not for show. Great Danes make wonderful companions, and Georgie Girl (the mom) is a very loving, laid back little lady. Buddy, the dad, is an unexcitable dude who takes his time to consider things before reacting. Keeping the health of the breed in mind, we were careful to match our female merle with a black mantle male. The resulting rainbow litter has been to the vet, had the dew claws removed, and pronounced healthy (and cute) but the vet and staff. Shots will follow. All pups will go back to the vet for whatever is needed (shots, etc) in the very near future.

Puppy Description:

Max is our biggest and most laid back puppy. A beautiful fawn baby with a light chocolate coat and a darker face.. He is easily twice the size of the smaller pups, and is a bit of a loaner - until dinner time! Funny little guy.

Items Included: Dew claws removed, puppy shots, dewormed

Questions You Should Ask the Breeder

1. Are the puppies' parents "certified"? This means that certain breeds are often at risk for genetic conditions such as hip problems, heart problems and eye problems. Most of these diseases are inherited, meaning the disease is passed from parent to puppy. Many breeders will have their dogs evaluated and tested for that disease and ultimately "certified" by a veterinary specialist to be disease-free. 

2. What are the sizes of the puppy's parents? Know how big the parents are, to get a good idea of how big your puppy will be. Is that the size dog you want? 

3. Ask to meet the dogs parents. If possible, meet the puppy's parents. Notice if they appear to be in good health and evaluate their overall temperament. Are they shy, aggressive, or well adjusted? 

4. How have they socialized the pups? Have the pups been around other dogs? Other people? Socialization is critical in puppies 6 – 16 weeks old. Proper socialization consisting of good experiences of a puppy with other puppies and lots of different ages, sizes and types of people will give you the best chance at having a well-adjusted dog. 

5. What vaccines has the puppy had? How many shots has he received and when will the puppy be due for his next puppy shot?

6. Have the puppies been dewormed? All puppies are born with worms and routine deworming is recommended. 

7. Have any of the puppies in the litter been sick? If so, what were the signs, the diagnosis and treatment? 

8. What visits has the puppies had with the veterinarian? Have they been examined and declared "healthy"? If not, what problems have they had? Have they been on any medications? 

9. What is their guarantee? What guarantee does the breeder give with their puppies? If the puppy is found to have a severe illness, what will they do? This is a difficult topic but one that is a lot easier to cover up front rather than later. 

10. Recommendations? Ask the breeder for a couple references of puppy owners that they have sold within the past year. CALL them. Find out if the breeder was fair, if they were happy with their pups, and how any problems were handled. 

11. Breeders contract? Does your breeder require a breeder's contract? If so, what is in it? Is the breeder willing to take back the puppy at any time, if you can't keep it? 

12. Limited registration. Some breeders require that you spay or neuter your dog by a certain age. If that is the case, that may not be a problem but it is best to know before you get your puppy. 

13. What is the family history? Ask if the breeder has information about the breed line. For example, ask how long the dogs have lived and what they have died from. Write it down. This may be important for monitoring your pet as he gets older. 

14. What is the breeder currently feeding the puppy? Regardless of what they are feeding, it is ideal to continue feeding the same food for the first few days at home to minimize the risk of gastrointestinal disturbances. If you choose to change the diet, do it gradually. 

15. Health certificate and certificate of sale. Ask the breeder if he will supply a health certificate for the puppy issued by his veterinarian. Some states require also a certificate of sale.

16. Does the breeder belong to a breed club? Ask for references.
