I want to get my husband another dane this summer hopefully if all goes well. Theyre our favorite dogs, our last one, Brutus, had been abused and when baby was born he decided he did not like him. We couldnt take a change with a 200 pound dog so he had to move to jersey with a family of polish women who agreed to feed him broutworst and pastries until he dropped dead from the spoiling. Anyway, needless to say its been almost three years and we're terribly missing having a dane. I watch the classifieds and websites- just wanted to see if I could network that off this site some how too. We're looking for a big male. Preferably black. Good size (i prefer a thin dane as opposed to the european mastif body type- theyre just a healthier animal in my experience) no droopy eyes in the genetics, and long lived- I like to see danes that come from lines that live to 9-12 years.
