People should never buy from pet shops or online. Always go to the place and look at the conditions, meet the dog’s parents so to speak. there are so many of these puppy mills in PA and in OH.
Great Danes are puppies who never grow up...................
Adopt a shelter dog, homeless dog, puppy mill rescue, Greyhound track rescue.
I’ve read...I think Readers Digest...that yes, of course , at least 50% if not more of dogs at pet stores are from puppy mills.....really, what did people expect?
When I owned one they were called "Bostons", and 115 lbs is light for that type.
They are wonderful dogs. They are naturally gentle and affectionate. But people should be aware they come with special requirements. Because of their size they eat more than most breeds, and cleanup is a bigger chore. Vet bills are higher.
While you can get away with spoiling a Boston Terrier, a super size dog must be properly trained for his well being and the safety of those around him.
Great Danes also break your heart much earlier than longer-lived breeds.
Sweet dogs. Such a shame.
You, too must be a Daney daddy. Labs are the same way. That’s what makes both breeds so wonderful.
No, I just know Danes.............
