This boy is hilarious! On the move! LOVES to eat and it is like he does not have a ‘full’ button and you have to monitor him closely.
He can be busy at times yet when it is time to settle down, he is a dream. He is a lot less busy than he used to be too! So much more calm and settled and he loves to be picked up by Kinsley and snuggled. He is far less active than BHRR’s Everly and BHRR’s Juniper!
As of last Saturday, we have created/renovated a 750+ square foot area in our rec room for the puppies and they also now have almost 3/4’s of an acre safely fenced in just for them with direct access from our rec room. They have wall to wall windows and French doors with so much wonderful sun light. They even have their own 54” TV and two fireplaces!
With the additional space and freedom, he is receiving all of the necessary physical stimulation he is currently needing in addition to the continued obedience and emotional stimulation plus oodles of love!
He has some anxiety issues that we have been working through and he is responding so well. New things have made him a bit nervous yet he is beginning to take more things in instant stride now. We are getting the right people to assist in holding and loving on him at the Vets/Photo Shoots to enable me to help him reach his full potential and he is doing great! He really is!
His true small anxiety moments come when his ‘kid’ or we leave him when it is time for quiet time or night time sleepies. He will sit and give a few whines and then he is over it….so much better than what it used to be.
When he makes up his mind that he wants to do something or go somewhere, watch out! LOL He will do all he can to meet that goal he has taken upon himself to do! He is a true hoot!
He is so much fun!
He is no longer a rough player…..he is learning to be gentle yet again, he is a big boy – second biggest in the litter as of 7 weeks of age on November 7th and he has learned much about the power of his paws and puppy teeth. He has learned ‘kisses only’ and ‘no biting’ and is smart!
You could not ask for a better snuggler when the time comes and he is ready for a snooze!
He is not high energy, just when he sets his mind to something & is comfortable, he just wants to do it! Then, he becomes a ‘man on the go!’ It is a real delight watching him think and ponder things through to trying to do what he wants and going where he wants!
This litter is average/top average for Giant Breed puppies now! GO PUPS GO!
He playful, shares well with his litter-mates and has made friends with both of the BHRR Saint Ladies, BHRR’s Brazilian Dane Baby Jackson along with three of my own dogs – my almost 13.5 year old GSx Cherokee and my own two Wolfies.
He is so handsome and while not a totally pushover in temperament, he is a team player, quite soft in personality over all and just loves his ‘pack’! A really sweet boy. He loves being around his humans.
He is such an easy keeper to us. Easy to do nails and to bathe plus clean ears! Travels great in a car!
If you do not have time to commit to a dog, please do not consider applying. He deserves a home that will take him for walks, strolls, new places, visiting friends and family and we are not seeking a super busy/active home. One that is average/normal in social activity both in and out of their home. A home that will commit to his needs and ensure that he is part of the family.
He can go to a home with children over the age of 10 and homes that feel it is ok for their children to ride or lay on dogs, need not bother applying. This is completely inappropriate behaviour.
We could only afford to do three DNA kits and we did a draw as to which three puppies would be done and the results came back supporting that all three pups done were Irish Wolfhound/Great Dane. This does not surprise me in knowing what the puppymiller was breeding.
Knows words such as his name, good and boy and sit and no plus treat/snack and so many others!
He, like his litter-mates love their giant stuffies to and cuddle with. 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 have a strong dog social network. We have friends and so should he and it will help keep him well balanced & rounded. These puppies are very much a product of their genetics. If he is an only dog, he really would benefit from having a Giant stuffie.
A home that shall not cater/enable to his small amounts of anxiety and one that has the experience/knowledge to be a proper positive balanced home for him.
Before applying to adopt him, please read our adoption processes and policies on our www.birchhaven.org
We are getting many inquiries on The Bakers Dozen litter from all over the States for example and our adoption area is clearly posted on our websites and in the adoption application.
People are also getting caught up in looks and their breeds and are not reading The Bakers Dozen’s detailed blogs about the homes we are seeking for the remaining pups in this litter. We go to great lengths to provide this information that shall answer almost all of your questions. ?
Photo is from his second professional photo shoot on October 22nd at almost 5.5 weeks of age. His third professional photo shoot was on November 5th!
He will be ready to go to his approved right match fit forever loving home by December 22nd, 2017. He and his siblings are scheduled to be altered between November 28th & December 8th. His first vaccines were November 7th.
He also has this individual blog:
