This boy beat astounding odds. This litter already had so much racked up against them….and he had even more…he survived pneumonia. He was not given a great prognosis yet he did it! He more than did it!
He took his Clavamox drops like a champ, was also placed on yogurt to help with the good bacteria in his gut and to assist with minimizing diarrhea.
He is so sweet….so loveable. Patient, kind, quiet, totally sweet.
This boy is so chill. Extremely quiet, calm and we have worked hard for him to feel it is ‘ok’ to ask for love for he is one to sit back and allow the more ‘in your face’ pups to grab the attention…yet, in his eyes, you know he wants his share too and we have made sure that he has more than his share of loving, snuggles and cuddles.
He likes to be loved on for a bit and then is most content to lay next to you…he wants to be near his humans and his siblings. He is so ‘pack oriented’.
He is going to be a big boy and this litter though born emaciated and tiny is thriving!
We are doing DNA testing on three of his siblings, BHRR’s Everly, BHRR’s Oliver and BHRR’s Carlsberg. We could only afford three DNA kits, did a draw and we are looking forward to the results.
We will approve a home for him that is not always on the go. He is so precious and is a stroll in the park, do some romping and playing and then a movie at home or dinner on the beach, small intimate groups of friends being hosted, quiet cottage weekender sort of boy. 🙂 The lazy hazy days of summer are all meant for him!
He is relaxed and will do best in a home that is equally relaxed and while that home is social, there is ‘no place like home’ kind of family is ideal for him.
He will not be approved to be adopted to a home that has children UNDER the age of 8. Homes with more than 2 children also shall not be considered.
Homes that feel it is acceptable to have their children ride or lay on dogs, need not bother applying. This is completely inappropriate and painful to the dog.
Easy to do nails and to bathe plus clean ears!
Travels wonderfully in a car and at 6.5 weeks of age, knows words such as his name, good and boy and so many others!
He, like his litter-mates love their giant stuffies to and cuddle with. He really does. Much comfort has been given by these stuffies as their Puppymill Great Dane Mama Gem sadly rejected them shortly after birth.
He can go to a home either as an only dog or to a home that already has a right matched fit dog already in it. It is most essential that he has a strong dog social network.
He is so handsome and gives the best facial expressions! Ever since he was born. If you look at his 3.5 week old professional photo’s to these….nothing has changed! He still has the best facial expressions! He speaks volumes with his soft, wistful, soulful eyes and face….
He is so even tempered.
Before applying to adopt him, please read our adoption processes and policies on our www.birchhaven.org
