    Re: Still Here (update on life)

    no, since your boy is black he should be fine. harl to harl breeding can and usually does produce white dogs that are deaf and/or blind. and those all-white dogs usually have a lot of other issues on top of being blind and/or deaf. it is a risk that ethical breeders just will not usually take as most those all white puppies do not live long.

      Oh okay I did read about that, too. The family I got him from bred their female with a friend's male, and when I mentioned the part about the embryos they said they weren't aware. My guess is that they just didn't know.
      Either way, the litter was 2 harls and 1 black, so luckily no white danes

          I was going to post that. It can also happen with merle x merle breedings.

            And merls should never be bred to anything. They are beautiful but their genes can do a lot of damage when bred...

              i know nothing about great danes but it sounds like they are nothing but a cluster of bad genetics!

                    Yeah they are. But there are still a myriad of issues that danes are susceptible to. I lost my big male last weekend to GDV or bloat. He was only 4 and a half. They typically only live for 8-10 years anyway, but I'd take that short time over 15 min with a chihuahua.

                          For those of you who want another update on Loki, he's doing really well with us. He had his last vet check-up on Thursday, and he's now 5 months old and weighs 80lbs. I really couldn't have asked for a better dog, and I love him to death.









                          And here's a quick video I took of him today.



                          Thanks for looking,
                          Tyler

                            5 months old! He is a big puppy. Glad he is doing well. Great Danes are great, maybe that's why it's in their name, lol

                              Breed bias bites. I have two Chiweenies and they are awesome. I have always ALWAYS had large dogs and still love them but my heart has been captured by the small ones.
