Sweet, playful, uber happy. outgoing, loving, calm, social and kind. Is she ever a bomb proof pup, sweet, playful with a perfect mischievous side. She is BUSY at times! So curious and we say that she is an explorer…..things to do, places to go, people to see. 🙂

She is the one that I am always telling ‘no’ do not go for my walls, my hutch, do not take that tea towel please, do not snatch that shoe that someone did not put on the shelf, or that what we thought was awell puppy proofed computer cord!

She has so much potential to do many types of disciplines!

She is a smart cookie and solid, solid, solid in personality. Yet, despite how busy she can be when awake at times, she cuddles and snuggles along with the best of them

Puppy Pile Photo – April 24th, 2016
10 days of age(born April 14th, 2016) – Mama GD Marbles Litter – She had 8 puppies yet sadly, one lovely merle male boy was stillborn and almost 30 minutes of working on him could not revive him. 🙁

All were weighed again yesterday and all are gaining well.

The one dark merle male boy that was born quite sluggish, continues to have some aspiration issues. He has been into see the Vet once already and we are monitoring him and all the puppies closely.

There are 4 boys and 3 girls and even the wee BBBBB runt female has caught up to the rest of the ‘gang’. She is feisty! 🙂

The puppies are back to see the Vet on Saturday AM as they will then be 2 weeks of age and time to begin their de-worming protocol.

AND, yes, for those that keep asking, this is a single breed GD litter of puppies AND NO, they are not yet ready for adoption AND shall not be for a long time to come.



All BHRR Great Dane Puppy Pile x 7 in the same canvas basket, the same one I used to bring 14 day old BHRR’s Ember and Flame to BHRR in back on December 7th, 2015.

Within 5 days, only two could fit comfortably into it! 🙂


7:08 AM Puppy #7 Black Female 1 pound 5 oz


Here is a photo of the whelping/nursing box. 6 x 5 x 2 feet. AND we put an Xpen with a door also along the side. Whole section beside the box for room for mom to leave pups and eat/drink and get some alone time….



1) Pee Pads
2) Someone had a wading pool and trying to remember who from a previous thread. Wondering if we can borrow it?
3) Towels
4) Blankets
5) Puppy food – for Mom right now
6) Soft Bath Mats – the ones from Pet Valu are fabu
7) Pinesol
8) Very Large Garbage Bags
9) Esbilac – Powder, not liquid

BHRR has been working on a cruelty/neglect case for the last week. All of the Danes are now in r/q care with other GD groups that we network with except for the one that ACO really wanted to send our way.

Today, this Dane was brought to see Dr. Liston at LAH.

As you can see, BHRR is having puppies. At least 8 were counted by Dr. Liston. Mom is so skinny herself and as we specialize in the emaciation cases, we were specifically asked to take her in, even, if we could not take the others that we then found other great places for.

We are calling her BHRR’s Marbles and one of the ACO officers wants to adopt the mom when she is ready. That is touching news.

Mom is due within the week and we are working to prepare all that we need beforehand.

If anyone has any of the above items and would not mind sharing or donating, we would be so appreciative.

BHRR has only helped three dogs to date in 2016 and this mama to be is the next in need of us…urgently so….

Thanks in advance!
