Derringer is a 3 yr old great dane, blue and white, ears cropped, male, neutered, vaccinated, chipped. We are currently taking applications for adoption. Derrin will be available to go home in appx 4 to 8 weeks. He was rescued from the shelter in terrible condition and we are currently rehabilitating him but are ready to start the hunt for the perfect family. About derringer... He is shy, and takes a couple days to warm up, but not aggressive because of it. He is a little jumpy, but seems to be less anxious as each day passes. When he leaves he will be leash trained and potty trained. He is great with other dogs, even grumpy ones. He is good around children. Men make him nervous, again that is less every day. He saw cats in cages and didn't react. He is not a barker, but will bark if he hears strange noises outside/knocking on the door. He was only 103 lbs when he arrived. His ideal body weight is )120. He will be released from vet care at 110-115 and should continue to put on weight slowly over the next 9 months. Adoption will include food, treats, collar, blanket, bones, toy, professiknal geoom, and 3 follow up vet visits with our vet, 3 months apart. He has scarring/scabbing from being kept on concrete without a blanket his entire life. Most of that will be permanent, but is not anything medically wrong, he has had skin scrapings and does not have any mites or mange, and is not contagious in any way to humans or other animals. He is currently on probiotics for his gut, and salmon and cod liver oils to help his skin and coat. He will come with 2 weeks worth of his supplents so that you can continue at home. He is eating high protien, corn free food, and we would prefer that is continued. His adoption fee is $850. He had a very rough first couple of years of his life and we want a comfortable, loving and patient home who will fully appreciate him.
