my neighbor's coonhound female got his great dane into running the countryside. the coonhound has disappeared, but the dane keeps comin up here lookin for her. if he keeps running someone will put him down, as wandering dogs are tolerated out here by farmers. if i keep taking him back he'll just keep showing up, so i'm considering keeping him. seems like a young dog, acts like a big baby and is real trusting. first time i saw him goin down the road i stopped the truck and called his name out and he came right over to me wagging his tail. opened the tailgate and he hopped right in for a ride. that dog had never seen me or my truck before but had no fear or mistrust towards me. just wondering, anyone have experience with whether or not danes get along well with chickens? do ya think he'd learn to guard the chicken yard at nights?
