The ears really are the odd ball part of his look.  They are certainly hard to place with a breed.  I am pretty sure his papa was large/giant breed mutt.

He is a lucky puppy to have such a cute girlfriend though!!

is thtat yahoo group really about not banning pits? it seems that it is about defeating legeslation that has more to do with puppy mills and such.  Can you explain the connection better for those of us that aren't up on the latest legal issues.

he gets along really well with the cast. My boyfriend has a cast on his left leg too, but he isnt lucky enough to have front legs like shakes, so he needs crutches.  shakes just sort of hops along sort of balances on the cast when he would usually put his weight on it.  the only thing he can't do is sit real well, but he seems content to lay down insead.

he shoudl heel up just fine.  he is lucky he is still young with nice growing bones that heal fast.  he has been in it a week so far, and probably has another 3 left.  We are goign back in in a week to get it all checked up on, but most likely it will need another couple weeks. 

i see sheaperd too, and a lot of people see dane too.  one of his brothers looks very mastiff, the other looks very dane, and shakes here doesn't really look particularly either.....

That is the really fun thing about mixed breeds, they are all surprises as they grow up.  Who knows what he will end up looking like, or how big he will end up being.  All we know is that he is the sweetest couch potato ever, and that is good enough for me!

i am pretty new to Big Paws and thought i would start by introducing my puppy!!  His name is Shakespeare and he had a rough life till we got him.  He is happy now though!!!

We know him mommy was an Old Enlish mastiff, but only have guesses to what his papa was. I would love any guesses ya'll have.

we think he is around five months... but with a rescued puppy that is a little unclear.

he is only 40 lbs, but would have been much bigger if he hadn't had a horrible past filled with malnutrition, mange, a parasite, beign lost for 6 days recently, and being found with a broken leg.  i bet his older alpha dog sister is 55 lbs or more even after the malnutrition and mange.

his story is a very sad one, which you can read in his paw print if it is working.  if it isnt working let me know so i can post it hear for anyone that wants to read it. 

Here are some recent pictures

hey, i just moved to long beach, ca and have a great dane.  i was wondering if anyone had suggestions for vets out here that do well with giant dogs, or even suggestions on other resources that would have such recomendations .  any help would be appreciated.
